That's covered on page 20 & 21 of your owner's manual under the heading"CHARCOAL FILTER REPLACEMENT"

1. Unplug oven or turn off power at the main power
supply.
2. Open the door.
3. Remove the two vent grille mounting screws. (3 middle screws)
4. Slide the grille to the left, then pull straight out.

Tappan over the range microwave tmv151fs. keypad shows SE and none of the buttons respond to being pushed.


"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

There are three ways to fix this:

The cheapest but most difficult is to remove and replace the membrane 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.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

MEMBRANE KEYPAD
5304456071 (black)
5304456071 (white)

You can replace the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

This costs is a little more, but is much easier.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

CONTROL FRAME WITH KEYPAD
5304456078 (black)
5304456079 (white)

The simplest way of all is to replace the whole control box.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

ENTIRE CONTROL BOX
5304456080 (black)
5304456081 (white)

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.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

My Tappan TMV151FS MIROWAVE OVEN DOES NOT WORK THE MESSAGE READS (SE) IN THE LCD WINDOW CAN'T LOCATE MY OWNERS MANUAL CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY INFORMATION ON THIS PROBLEM THANK YOU LEO LAFLER


"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

The most economical repair (and a pretty simple one) is to replace your entire controller assembly.

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.

Model TMV151FBA is black and model TMV151FSA is white.

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

You would order one of these here:

PART DESCRIPTION COST
5304456080 Control Box, assembly, black $145.14
5304456081 Control Box, assembly, white $149.42

Light won't go on; Model MMV1153WB-O


You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Enter it as MMV1153WB0 (no dash, zero on the end, not "oh")

Or just get it here, to be more exact.
On page 4, it says:

"Installing/Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
■ Grease filter: Grease filter is on the underside of microwave
oven. Clean monthly. Slide the filter away from the tab area,
and drop out the filter. To reinstall, place end of the filter into
the opening opposite the tab area, swing up the other end,
and slide it toward the tab area.
■ Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months.
Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it
out, and remove filter. To reinstall, place the filter into its slotted
area – wire mesh side up, replace vent grille, and secure with
screws.
■ Cooktop light(s): The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on
the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable.
Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace
bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw.
■ Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille,
tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
with screws."

HINT: Unplug the oven before removing or installing the bulbs, or you may need this service.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites. Hope this covers it.

1 Answer

Tappan over range has no heat!


You have a bad high voltage diode, bad filter capacitro or a bad magnatron. The diode and capacitor does not cost very much. You can get them at www.mcmelectroncs.com . Replacement would mean removing the unit from under the counter, remove the case. Locate the diode and capacitor. They should be near the power section and the diode is attached to the chassis and one side of the filter capacitor. After replaceing both parts if the unit will not heat you would need a new magnatron. The part is fairly expensive but depending on the cost of your unit it may pay to replace it. Let me know if you need anymore help.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.
