Question about Samsung SMH7178STD Microwave Oven
-SE- error means you
have a shorted membrane keypad.
If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.
So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.
It's usually more economical on a Samsung to replace the control panel assembly, which includes the frame and keypad or (depending on your model number) the entire control box assembly which includes the keypad, frame and circuit board.
Either parts swap is easy to do. About 8 screws and a few connectors.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
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.
