TE error code indicates that you have a problem with the touch keypad communication between the control panel and the main control circuit board. You could try and see if you have a "gunked" up touch panel, if the ribbon cables are still okay and properly seated.

Samsung OTR microwave displays TE and won't work. What does this mean?


Unless there is grease, moisture, or some other foreign material deposits on your control circuit board, "SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

For the official repair information as per the Samsung bulletin, see http://www.microwavecontrol.com/samsung_se_error.htm

See my profile picture if you need more help.

Have a TE code showing on my kenmore elite microwave hood combo


At some place I saw that the TE error refers to the touch panel.
If you go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com/ and enter your full model number you can get parts list and buy parts and even get repair advice.
Link below shows how to replace a control panel on some model of microwave oven. In the video you will see a ribbon cable being removed. You might want to wipe the contacts of the ribbon with alcohol and put it back in to see if it helps with your problem.

Ik moet het lampje van mijn heteluchtoven vernieuwen maar, waar zit dat???


Goede dag,

De lampje voor uw magnetron is gelegen onder de binnenkant van de omslag.
U zult het deksel op de lampje te vervangen los te draaien.
Dit is meestal een eenvoudig proces en vereist slechts een sterpunt schroevendraaier.

De beste wensen,

I hav 2 buttons that hav signs on it at the top of my freezer i dont know what theyre for...if i push 1 of the buttons it lights up so i dont know if they should be on or off cause i dont know what theyr...


An orange button with a snowflake on it normally means 'fast freeze' and should only be used (lit up) if you have added a large item to the freezer and want it to freeze quickly. I assume the button marked 'super' means 'super fast freeze' but without knowing the make and model of your freezer it's difficult to be certain. If you can provide those details I will respond again.

I have a TE Error on my Kenmore Elite Microwave... what does it mean? It won't do anything... I've unplugged it to see if it will clear... nothing...


The cause of the TE error for us was grease/gunk on some exposed pins and flex connectors (communication bus between controller and keypad) that was interfering with communication with the keypad. Resolution to TE error: Remove the keypad / control board from the microwave. There are three screws on the bottom at the front to remove. Once those are removed, the keypad is held on by clips. Slide the entire keypad to the left and it will come loose. After it is loose, carefully remove all the wired connectors to the microwave. Lay the keypad face down on the counter and look at the control board. The control board is actually seperate from the keypad and connected via two thin flex strips with many small contacts (like a nintendo game connector) . Our flex strips were covered in grease from the hood fan operation. Carefully clean the strip and the connector (with a felt pen if you have one) and resassemble. This resolved the issue for us.
