SOURCE: 5E error message

"SE" means you have a shorting 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.

On most Samsung models, your best bet is to buy a whole new control box and replace it.

This is
a simple do-it-yourself job.

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.

If you do not find information about your model or you need more help, note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So please post a
NEW question, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The 5E error indicates a problem with the key pad. The microwave computer believes there is a short between the key pad and the central board. You may be able to temporarily reset the error by unplugging the microwave for at least 30 seconds. (In some cases, tripping your circuit breaker may be an easier way to disconnect the power to an over the range microwave.)

Some people have been able to solve the code by cleaning the contacts in the wiring harness. The recommended solution is to replace the assembly control panel (switch membrane, window and control panel). See for a parts diagram and some prices.

Since microwaves have capacitors that store significant amounts of energy, you may want a professional to take apart the microwave and do the repair.

I hope this helps.

What does the code 5E mean

The 5E (SE) code indicates a problem with the keypad. A temporary solution may be to unplug the microwave and then reconnect the power cord. (Since the MMV1163DB is a microwave/hood, you may find it easier to turn off the power at your circuit breaker.)
However, you will probably need to replace the keypad or fix the wiring between the keypad and the control unit. If the microwave is under warranty (1 year from date of purchase), contact Maytag at 1-800-688-9900 . One potential solution is to check for damage to the wire between the keypad and the central control unit in the microwave. If you are handy, you can try the procedure that can be found with a Google search. Look for a link to an forum on the 5E code. However, I can't recommend the procedure for most since it is very easy to break the ribbon cables or their connecting tabs. has the parts breakdown for the microwave. Check for the correct panel based on the exterior surface of your microwave.

I hope this helps.

I have a se or 5e code what is it

Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave is displaying the error code "SE" or "5E". I have researched and the error code seems to be "SE" which means keypad is stuck. In order to remove the error code the keypad would need to be replaced.

Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt
