Question about Samsung Microwave Ovens

Samsung Microwave Oven shows -SE- on the display. Why?

I bought a Samsung Microwave Oven model AMW8113W/ST almost 7 months ago and it has been working fine. But yesterday it just made this sound, as if food that was being heated was done and on the display it showed -SE-. None of the buttons work and I tried disconnecting it and connecting it again and the same thing happened. What can I do?

-SE- error means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can find your nearest Samsung-authorized service center here or call Samsung's Service Division at 800-932-3837.

SAMSUNG MICROWAVE SHOWS SE AND WILL NOT WORK.WHY?


SE is an error code for a shorted keypad, although the keypad might not really be shorted.

Unplug the oven for a few minutes to see if it clears the error code. If not, then leave it unplugged over night. If the problem persists, then you probably do have a shorted membrane switch on the keypad.

Display show SE from samsung microwave range hood


The keypad has a short in the membrane, which means the keypad control board will probably need to be replaced.

Wont work displays SE


This indicates a short in the keypad membrane, I recommend changing the keypad control board together simply because you will avoid issues that crop up when only one part is changed, also cost to replace the parts will be expensive and should be carefully considered.

My SMH9151W Samsung Microwave displays a -SE- or a -5E- and will not operate. I unplugged over night and still will not operate


I had the same issue on a 2010 smh9151w samsung microwave after installing it and using it with no problem for 5 days. The second time we unplugged the microwave and turned the circuit breaker off and on we didn't reset the clock on the microwave so the display shows :0 and it has been working for 7 days straight now. Fingers crossed that this is a long term solution. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Microwave displaying SE in the display panel, it is only 5 months old.


An SE error on a Samsung microwave 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.

My display is showing ---SE--- and the buttons are not working?


"SE" error on a Samsung microwave oven means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

I can't find any service data on it.

From review site listings, it looks like it retailed for about $80 at Kmart a few years back.

I'm guessing it's now fodder for the recyclers.

Good luck.

Model 63259 bought about 2 months ago. I went to


you can check and see if there is a fuse on the microwave, if not it may have just burned out, its probably still under warranty so try to take it back for a replacement

Quit working


SE probably means a sensor error.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Otherwise, it may have a problem with the control panelm such as moisture or contamination or a bad connection.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it, and please write back with more details if you need further help.
