This answer was rated:

The display numbers (for oven temperature, clock, etc) on our Jenn Air gas stove (SVD 48600) are only visible at night, i.e. in the dark. During the day, we have to use a thermometer in the oven to determine the temperature. We've been told it would cost $100+ for "diagnosis" and something like $175 for the display & installation. Can you suggest any options for us??!
please remember we are not in your home to do the repair or test our self and cant always be 100% and can always overlook something / thanks

thanks - we were already told that a new part was needed - very expensive!! If we could install it ourselves we'd consider doing that - Do you have any information about how to install it?
you can ,, just remove the back panel on the control panel and swap it out ,, its only held by 4 small screws and the wires plugs on so its very easy / thanks

When you refer to a "back panel" I assume you mean bottom panel?
We removed the 4 screws and a piece of trim came off easily, but nothing more.
We notice there are 4 small "bolt" heads, or something of that sort. Do those need to be removed also? (And should we turn off electricity before even looking at this?)

We're just investigating at this point, as, of course, we don't have a replacement part.
you have to remove the screws from under the control panel and remove the screws holding the top and raise and then the screws at the top of the control panel and pull the panel out and swap the clock from the inside back
