Try a reset. unplug for 10 mins, plug it back, see if it will work.

if not , open the housing, see a ribbon cable from the touch pad to the main pc board. remove the ribbon cable for 1 min. re install it back and test the unit.

be sure to return all cover and screws of the unit before plugging it back. microwaves are hazardous to your health.

Display show SE from samsung microwave range hood


The keypad has a short in the membrane, which means the keypad control board will probably need to be replaced.

My child locked the microwave pad. How do I unlock it?


The operation manual is available for free download from Samsung at this site: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200305/20030529145700437_MW5592.pdf
The answer to how to lock and unlock is on page 15 of the manual. It's instructions are: 1. Press the '0' button, the display will show: "PRESS 1- DEMO 2-CHILD LOCK"
2. Press the "2" button, the display will show: "PRESS START"
3. Press the start button and the display will show "LOCK" then returns to the time of day.
At this point the microwave can't be used. To unlock, just repeat steps 1-3.
Hope this helps

I have owned a AMC5101AAW for about three and a half years. It has been a good microwave,perfect for my needs. The display went black and the buttons didn't work right after I boiled a cup of water for...


It sounds like it could be just a bad crimp connector supplying power to the whole system, which would have to be the fuse holder on the mains input panel.
Worth a look!

We have a 1986 montgomery ward microwave that the cotrol panel will only display 8888. It appears to be locked.


You can try resetting the micorwave by unplugging it, waiting awhile then plugging it back in. However, considering it's age. It is probably worn out and repair would cost much more than a new mupdated microwave. They are very reasonable in price now.
