The SE code indicates a problem with the control panel. It could be triggered by simply holding a touchpad button for too long (10+ seconds). Release any buttons that you had your finger on and press and release Clear/Off. Don't hold buttons for an extended period in the future.

If that doesn't clear the error, try unplugging the appliance for 30+ seconds. If that fails, you probably have a short in the key pad or the wiring between the keypad and the clock. This will need to be checked and probably replaced. The wiring gets checked for broken conductors or corrosion. If the oven is still under warranty, contact Samsung.

I hope this helps.

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.

Why does my Samsung microwave smh8165ste have error code --SE--?

SE indicates a shorted membrane switch on the keypad. Unplug the oven for a few minutes to see if it clears. If not, leave it unplugged overnight. If the problem persists, then you probably do have a switch that's bad.

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.
