    we have a SMH177STE samsung microwave, a year & half old. Sometimes works fine- other times will stop mid-cooking, beep 4 times and SE comes up on display. Difficult to get keypad to work at these times. What does SE stand for- how can this be resolved?

    We are having the same problem. The hard set does not work. Any other suggestions?

We had the same problem and fixed it! Try hitting Pause/Cancel button until it shows zero on the display. Then press Kitchen Timer button and input 1:00. Then press start. Our microwave began working after trying that. Hope it works for you!

SE probably means a sensor error.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Otherwise, it may have a problem with the control panelm such as moisture or contamination or a bad connection.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it, and please write back with more details if you need further help.

    UPDATE

    The -SE-error is a shorted keypad.



    If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.



    If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

The keypad has a short in the membrane, which means the keypad control board will probably need to be replaced.

My SMH9151W Samsung Microwave displays a -SE- or a -5E- and will not operate. I unplugged over night and still will not operate


I had the same issue on a 2010 smh9151w samsung microwave after installing it and using it with no problem for 5 days. The second time we unplugged the microwave and turned the circuit breaker off and on we didn't reset the clock on the microwave so the display shows :0 and it has been working for 7 days straight now. Fingers crossed that this is a long term solution. Hope this helps. Thanks!

You didn't mention your brand or model number, so I can only give you a general response.

It sounds like a shorting membrane keypad.

On Samsung's, they will show the error code "SE".

Hi,

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

Samsung Microwave Oven shows -SE- on the display. Why?


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

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can find your nearest Samsung-authorized service center here or call Samsung's Service Division at 800-932-3837.
