Hi

Ok from what you say yes its a fault on the display board.
But what you can try first is remove the top and look at the display board and disconnect the wiring block to it.
Then give the ends a gentel squess as this will make a better connection.
Do it on both ends as the other end will go to the main control board.

Then see if this makes a difference as sometimes it can. But if not then its going to be the display board at fault which they do fail on these as i have replaced a few over the years. Its not a common fault but they do fail.
