Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

The display is part of the main control, number 2 in the diagram at the link below. That part will need to be replaced.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

To replace the control, unplug the microwave and remove the grille from above the door. Once it has been removed, you will have access to a screw at the top of the control panel. Remove that screw, lift the panel up and hinge it down for full control access.

I posted that above but have copied it below as well.

Ok
Do you know what the path runs I saw $ 116.00
Any chance maybe I can just clean it ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The part is about $165, see the link I sent above. A dim light is caused by a faulty capacitor on the board, it is not a connection issue.
