SE error means you
have a shorted membrane keypad.
The full model number would be MMV1153AAB or MMV1153AAW and denotes color.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly ("control panel/switch" as it's called) which comes with a new keypad.
It's actually a pretty easy 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.
Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.
Some connectors have a lock:
Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.
You can get the part from the Pros here. They're our favorite supplier.
You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SE means system error, the keypad has a short in the membrane, or the control board has issues.

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

Hello Arold - Typically, error code SE indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the microwave by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually clears most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the touch keypad on the unit will need replacing.
