Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination oven Model 401.80089 that is displaying SE. Tried to rest power but no luck? Key pad does not respond either?
I have Microwave Kenmore model 401.80082700 about more than a year. After about 6 months, it stated to have some probles such as some number keys not working. Then button START become nor working some times. I can use only button of 30 secon increment to cook something. OK, the fan is working for most of the time but the levels are stuck, not adjustable. I can't changer the fan levels. Now the lamp buton is dead. Sometime, the fan level control is working by itself level 1, 2, 3.... then it appears -SE- on the display. nothing work now. I unplug.... then plug back, it ask to input the time or date... I can't do any thing. Later some time I can cook by using 30 secon button.... It is anoying. Please how I can fix it? Thank you.

The 401 in the model number is the model prefix for Samsung, who manufactured the oven.
SE error 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 of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.
I would need the rest of the model number from the tag to help you more.
A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########
