Excellent additional information on how to repair this interesting calculator!
We keep learning from others all the time.
Thank you for that.

Concerning the high voltage present on the front face, I didn't realize it was present.
Well, we know the VFD works much like a vacuum triode, where the cathode (filament) must be negative in respect to the anode.

So your explanation makes sense to me, but other expert people on physics here can give a more elaborate explanation.
