UPDATE

The -SE-error is 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.

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.

SOURCE: kenmore microwave model number 401.80084700 Displaying -SE-/-5E-

-SE- error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

There are three ways you can get it fixed:

DE34-00178X SWITCH MEMBRANE $20.30
ref#53 membrane keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, peel the old keypad off as in this handy guide with pictures , clean the surface, stick on the new keypad
order by part number here
(We can do this job for you for a total of $70.25, but as you can see, the other two options are more practical and economical)

DE94-01647A ASY CONTROL PANEL $39.01
ref#66 control panel frame with keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, disconnect the keypad strip as shown here, move your circuit board to the new frame, reinstall
order by part number here

DE94-01648A ASY CONTROL, BOX $58.12
ref#59 complete control panel assembly with frame, keypad and circuit board
take yours off as in the video at our site, then install the new one
order by part number here

If these parts are not in stock, they should be available in about a week or so.

Kenmore microwave model 68680/12 is displaying code F2. Nothing on the control panel works.


Call the 800 # for Sears service. They should be able to tell you what that code is for. Bad key pad or door switch??

Samsung microwave SMH9151W displays code -SE-


"SE" means you have a defective membrane keypad. There are two ways to fix this:

1. Replace the membrane keypad. If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, there is a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. It is part number DE34-00304G.

2. Replace the control panel frame assembly (part number DE94-01806J) which comes with a new keypad already installed. Details are below.

There is a a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

40716d4.jpg

Some connectors have a lock.

Then simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
You should first contact these parts suppliers to see which if either parts are in stock or still actually available:

Sears Parts Direct
Encompass parts (or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835)
The Pros here

Again the parts are:

DE34-00304G membrane keypad switch
DE94-01806J control panel assembly

Model 401.80089700 microwave has a 5E or SE code on the display.


"SE" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.
This is actually a pretty simple do it yourself repair.
The most economical solution is to replace the control panel frame assembly ("control") , which comes with a new keypad already installed.
It is part number DE94-01647A and you can order it from the Sears Parts Direct Web site for $59.99.
You can see a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes here.
The attached images show you how to disconnect the controller.
Since you're not adjusting or removing the door or hinges, a microwave leakage test is not necessary.

What does F4 on microwave display mean?


This Kenmore is made by LG for Whirlpool. Confused yet? :D

F4 means you have an open humidity sensor.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site here, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

But Sears parts can usually be obtained for far less here by entering either the part number.

Display shows -SE-, none of the control buttons are working, it is beeping every few minutes


-SE- on a Samsung / Kenmore microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open.

You can find part numbers and helpful exploded view diagrams
at the Sears Parts Site.

Once you have the part numbers, you can usually find them at a better
price here.

There are generally three ways to fix these models:

1. Have just your keypad replaced by a technician (we do it for $39.95 plus parts) or do it yourself.

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. It's here.

2. Order the control panel frame with keypad. This may cost a little more, but it's much easier.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available 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) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

3. Replace the whole control box and keep your old one as a spare.

The control box is the control panel frame, keypad and circuit boards all in one. It's often very affordable, especially if you order it here.

Kenmore Microhood 401.80089 - L SE L error


The 401 model prefix means it's actually made by Samsung.

On some Samsung models, there is an odd SE error message that seems to be vexing a lot of people.

It's probably a sensor going bad, or maybe scrambled code in the microprocessor, but it's odd.

There is one discussion of it here.

I hate to say it, but since it's a Kenmore brand, you're going to have to call Sears for service.

You can find them at http://www.sears.com

I really hope they can help you.

Kenmore microwave


Since it's under warranty, they will replace or repair it at their choice, and if they replace it, it will be the same model or a "like model".

I'd ask them about it.
