SOURCE: We are getting an error code of 5E. Microwave

"SE " means your membrane keypad is shorting. And it is specifically the baked potato key that's shorting.

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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking. Better still, unplug it and do not use it.

We would need the model number in order to provide you with free assistance.

It is usually found on a tag located inside the cooking cavity or around the door frame or controller frame.

Since FixYa is still not notifying us when you respond to clarification requests, you will have to post a new help request with your model number and symptoms / questions or contact us here for free assistance.

Auto Cook not working


If autocook is not working and everything else it, there is an issue with the sensor in the oven that detects the steam, The emission of steam is what triggers that unit to shut off. If it wont cook on any settings then the issue is with the microwave generator not putting out enough power. This could be from a lot of things.

I have an Electrolux High Speed Oven E30SO75FPS that's 3 years old and the Magnetron has failed for the 3rd time. What can be causing this?


Is the internal cooling fan working?

Are the ducts and vents clear?

Problems with any of those can result in overheating, which destroys magnetrons.

I have seen high voltage rectifier diodes interact with magnetron in funny ways. I'd replace the diode, too.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Finally, baking potatoes and making popcorn really give the magnetron a workout.

You should put about 1/2 cup of water in the rear corner of the microwave when cooking those foods.

It helps "preload" the oven to prevent execessive microwave energy reflection back to the magnetron.

Over heating and shuting off


I am not surprised! Cloth of anysort is not recommended to be placed in a microwave oven!

That includes undies and socks which many try to speed the drying time of.

Regarding the popcorn.. The oven is overheating due to a possible containment in a hutch, where insufficient airflow is available to lower the temperature. Pull the unit away from the wall to allow more airflow, clean the vents and help it breathe.

Sharp microwave losing cooking power


If the supply voltage is low it will take long time to heat foods. The second reason is the Magnetron. Since it is in the warranty period you can call at the sharp authorised service center. They will do it free of coast.

Kenmore Microhood 401.80089 - L SE L error


The 401 model prefix means it's actually made by Samsung.

On some Samsung models, there is an odd SE error message that seems to be vexing a lot of people.

It's probably a sensor going bad, or maybe scrambled code in the microprocessor, but it's odd.

There is one discussion of it here.

I hate to say it, but since it's a Kenmore brand, you're going to have to call Sears for service.

You can find them at http://www.sears.com

I really hope they can help you.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I bought a ge microwave 5/20/08. I have used it several times and it has worked well. Today I was cooking baked potatoes. I usually do them 1 by 1 and then put them in the oven for a crip skin. After...


It should default to the high power level without your having to select that.

But if you think it may have a problem, you could unplug it for a few minutes then plug it back in and try again.

After that, if it's not acting as it should according to the owner's manual, it may need service.

If so, since it's under warranty, I would let GE fix it.GE Customer Service is online here.

Magic chef microwave shuts down


We had the same problem with our brand new Magic Chef. Before going through the trouble of taking it back I called Home Depot. After talking to a Home Depot Rep I am told that the overheat sensor is under the glass plate directly beneath the popcorn bag. Popcorn gets very hot and the heat of the popcorn causes the sensor to shut the machine down. I would imagine this would be the same for a baked potato.
Very poor design.
I was told to put a microwave safe plate down and put the popcorn bag on it. This should help to reduce the heat and not trip the sensor.
A safety sensor is great, but not if it keeps tripping the machine and shutting down!
