SOURCE: kenmore microwave model number 401.80084700 Displaying -SE-/-5E-

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

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.

There are three ways you can get it fixed:

DE34-00178X SWITCH MEMBRANE $20.30
ref#53 membrane keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, peel the old keypad off as in this handy guide with pictures , clean the surface, stick on the new keypad
order by part number here
(We can do this job for you for a total of $70.25, but as you can see, the other two options are more practical and economical)

DE94-01647A ASY CONTROL PANEL $39.01
ref#66 control panel frame with keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, disconnect the keypad strip as shown here, move your circuit board to the new frame, reinstall
order by part number here

DE94-01648A ASY CONTROL, BOX $58.12
ref#59 complete control panel assembly with frame, keypad and circuit board
take yours off as in the video at our site, then install the new one
order by part number here

If these parts are not in stock, they should be available in about a week or so.

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

Error Code "d" - Microwave does not heat


The microwave could be in "Demo Mode" - Check your owners manual.

In Whirlpool/Kenmore models this is indicated by a lower case "d" on the right side of the display panel.

Most/All function except the magnatron (heat) work in demo mode so you can can learn to use the oven without actually cooking food

To clear "demo mode" press the "kitchen timer" pad and hold for 5 seconds until the "d" clears from the display... you may hear 2 beeps.

I have a Kenmore microwave. The vent will just start on its own and can't shut off


Actually, that's a feature! If you cook much on the range (stove) beneath the microwave, the heat will cause the microwave bottom to heat up quite a bit (just touch it!), and the microwave will turn on it's exhaust fan in an attempt to save itself from burning up. It will shut off in about 15 minutes after you turn off the source of heat.
But if the fan comes on by itself even when the microwave is cool (or at least not hot), then you probably have a defective fan thermostat. This thermostat is located behind the control console on the inside bottom of the microwave.

Our Kenmore microwave oven recently stopped heating. The lights, turning plate and controls all work but with no cooking is occurring. The last time I attempted to heat something up I heard a cracking...


The most likely cause is a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two possibilities are the high voltage capacitor and diode. The cost to repair will a approach a new microwave oven.

What does F4 on microwave display mean?


This Kenmore is made by LG for Whirlpool. Confused yet? :D

F4 means you have an open humidity sensor.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site here, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

But Sears parts can usually be obtained for far less here by entering either the part number.

Wjusino just asked: My kenmore microwave doesnt heat.


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Kenmore microwave


Since it's under warranty, they will replace or repair it at their choice, and if they replace it, it will be the same model or a "like model".

I'd ask them about it.
