Could that model number be UMV1152CAQ instead?

Either way, -SE- error means you have a shorted keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

What does the code 5E mean


The 5E (SE) code indicates a problem with the keypad. A temporary solution may be to unplug the microwave and then reconnect the power cord. (Since the MMV1163DB is a microwave/hood, you may find it easier to turn off the power at your circuit breaker.)
However, you will probably need to replace the keypad or fix the wiring between the keypad and the control unit. If the microwave is under warranty (1 year from date of purchase), contact Maytag at 1-800-688-9900 . One potential solution is to check for damage to the wire between the keypad and the central control unit in the microwave. If you are handy, you can try the procedure that can be found with a Google search. Look for a link to an ApplianceJunk.com forum on the 5E code. However, I can't recommend the procedure for most since it is very easy to break the ribbon cables or their connecting tabs. http://www.maytagpartsonline.com/modellookup/index/thirdstep/keyword/MMV1163DB/model_no/MMV1163DB00/model_id/351623/diagram_id/10797553 has the parts breakdown for the microwave. Check for the correct panel based on the exterior surface of your microwave.

I hope this helps.

Microwave started beeping with nothing in it now it says SE or 5E


These issues are usally due to a defective touchpad or control board. Troubleshooting would require disconnecting the touchpad ribbon cable from the control board to see if that made the problem go away.

5E display on maytag microwave


<- Let me know your full model number from the tag on your oven so I can give you detailed information repair.

Unless there is grease or moisture on your control circuit board, "SE" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

I have a Maytag Microwave/Hood MMV4203DS00. Twenty minutes after its last use as a microwave oven, the Vent Fan spontaneously went on and the Display Shows: VENT...FAN..--5E-- (or SE?). The microwave...


"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame assembly (which comes with a new keypad) would have to be ordered and replaced.

It's actually a pretty simple DIY repair.

The frame assembly is part number W10258190 and you can get it for $67.98 (subject to change) from the Pros here. You can also order the thermostat (part number WB27X10567 ) from them.

Their is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad as per the photo below.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

My SMH9151W Samsung Microwave displays a -SE- or a -5E- and will not operate. I unplugged over night and still will not operate


I had the same issue on a 2010 smh9151w samsung microwave after installing it and using it with no problem for 5 days. The second time we unplugged the microwave and turned the circuit breaker off and on we didn't reset the clock on the microwave so the display shows :0 and it has been working for 7 days straight now. Fingers crossed that this is a long term solution. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Will not heat


No, you would need to do a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Broken microwave


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then please let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

(It may need work on the controller or keypad)
