An error code 5E is on my Samsung microwave? What does this mean and how do I fix the problem?


SE means it has a shorted membrane switch on the keypad, or at least it thinks it does. Unplug the oven for 30 minutes to see if that clears the code. If not, you might actually have a bad switch.

On a GE or Hotpoint, it usually means the keypad is defective. On some other brands, it means there's a sensor error.

-se- is displayed on the screen, what does it mean?


Usually means "Sensor error". The problem is usually associated with the circuit board for your touch pad on the front of microwave. More than likely a bad contact/connection on one of the plugs in the back of that panel.
Just type the following in your search engine and the video explains it all. "samsung microwave se (5e) error fix". Hope this is your fix and that you are OK with taking it apart. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS REMOVED BEFORE GETTING IN THERE!! good luck!

I have a se or 5e code what is it


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

"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad. It's not uncommon for it to be intermittent or partially operable.

Since it's under warranty, I would contact Samsung for a free fix. See your owner's manual.
