It's safe to operate only because there are other safety devices built into the oven which would stop the oven from over heating if the display board got worse for some reason. Either way, you need to try to unplug the oven for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset and if not then the timer would need to be replaced to resolve the issue permanently or prevent the display board from getting worse.
