Samsung microwave se error

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

On some models, you can peel off and replace the old keypad.

On others, it's best to replace the control panel frame, which contains a new keypad already.

You didn't mention your full model, but if it;s the same as the category in which you posted (SMH9187ST) here is a specific solution:

The simplest way to fix this is a simple DIY solution, to replace the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad already attached.

It is part number DE94-02001C "assy control panel" and you can order it from the Pros here for about $30 plus shipping.

They may not have it in stock, but if you order it, they can have it in a few days.

My ge microwave model jes1384sf stopped working and sure that the power is going to the microwave, But clock, timer and contol panel etc. nothing turns on. Is there anything can be done to find out what...

You have a power fuse inside of the panel that supplies AC power to the panel as well as the klystron tube. This is generally a slow blow 15 amp Buss fuse. Since these fuses deteriorate over time and they are sized to just hold the requested amps (15) to prevent a possible fire. You will have to take the Panel apart and find the fuse, but be sure you flip the breakers as the panel has a High Voltage power section with large capacitors that can produce a nasty shock. Before touching any thing with the breaker power off, short the capacitors to ground to discharge them, then pull and replace the Buss fuse.

Control buttons don't work.

The touch panel most likely just needs to be replaced. Without any extensive testing, you can order a new panel from and if replacing that doesn't fix the problem, then the panel can be returned within 30 days, though it should from what you have said so far.

Let me know how this works out for you.

We regularly replace these.

My Goldstar 1500 Micro wave no power

HEating element popped and needs to be replaced. Also check for discoloring on the sides and back of the panel. This will also tell you what is going on. Make sure that the power cord did not break either and that it is fully attached where it is supposed to go

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

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can probably download it here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven

Your problem is likely a blown fuse, a bad magnetron thermal cutout / thermostat, or a bad oven cavity thermostat.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool / Amana owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Micriowave key panel

The part number for the Control Panel assmbly is WB07X10789, you can order it from numerous places but has it listed as a special order for 110.00. To replace it first shut for the POWER. there are usually 2 screws in the face of the grill above the door, sometimes in the top of the unit. Remove these then the grill will pull off, just above the control panel there is one screw take that out then lift up on the control and pull out on the top, control panel should come out. Be sure you keep track of the wires attached to the control and where to put them back....
