Says SE on the screen and will not work


HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY OVER THE STOVE SAMSUNG MICROWAVE. LOOKED UP ALL THE ANSWER'S AND CHOOSE THE ONE I THOUGHT BEST AND EASIEST. ITS A MOISTURE (STEAM) PROBLEM FROM COOKING ON THE STOVE. TAKE THE TOUCH PAD APART (AFTER UNPLUGGING AND FINDING THE VIDEO ON U-TUBE THAT SHOWS YOU HOW TO DO IT) ITS EASY. I JUST TOOK THE RIBBON (MINE IS GREEN) SEPARATED IT FROM IT SELF AND PLACED A PIECE OF PAPER IN BETWEEN SO THEY DON'T TOUCH. HAD TO DO IT TWICE BECAUSE I DID NOT SEPARATE THEM DOWN FAR ENOUGH. I ALSO BUT A PIECE OF FOAM IN THE PANEL UNDERNEATH THE CIRCUIT BOARD BECAUSE OF THE HUGE GAP FOR STEAM TO GET IN. IT'S LASTED 4 MO, THAN STARTED FLASHING SE OCCASIONALLY BUT BY OPENING THE DOOR AND PUSHING STOP ITS FINE. THIS HAPPENS MAYBE ONCE A WEEK. I THINK IF I GO BACK IN AND RE-SEPARATE THE RIBBON IT WOULD STOP AGAIN BUT IT'S REALLY NOT ENOUGH TO BOTHER ME. GOOD LUCK

I have LG lmhm2017st microwave and some times the buttons won't work but now it inputs 11:11 start all by it self over and over again . If I leave it unplugged for a few minutes it will start to work...


If you have warranty use it asp, from the description the problem is in the keypad "membrane shorting" or the microprocessor control board is becoming intermittent, it will get to the point and stop functioning.

Hello, I had my RCA rmw 1199 for about 4 months and it just stopped working. Nothing happened to it, it was just in the middle of microwaving and it stopped. We've never been able to get it to operate ever...


Unplug it fully then recheck....Could also be a thermal fuse has gone creating a duel problem with the turntable and Magnatron Heating device ,a cheap fix providing its just a fuse but not advisable to do self repair due to High Voltages within the unit...good luck

When start Microwave after a couple seconds it stops and asks you to set the clock again.


The magnetron on most all microwave ovens is tied to the microprocessor that drives the display and the input from the keypad.
Check you manual to see if it comes with a self-diagnostic (higher-end microwaves from Panasonic, LG and Jenn-Air come with them) and run it (normally kicked off by a keypad sequence).
If unplugging the microwave and plugging it back in after about 15-20 seconds doesn't correct the problem, then I'd get it serviced if under warranty. Microprocessor will need to be replaced most likely. If not covered under warranty then you're looking at out-of-pocket repair or replacement.

My Sunbeam Over the range microvawe will self start!


You need to get it looked at professionally. Faulty microwaves are not really the thing that you should be repairing at home. They can be lethal. Find a local repair shop and get a quote for repair.

My GE microwave started running by it's self. It first said 3.5oz and would not stop until door was opened. then it started beeping and wouldn't stop until door was opened. we unplug hoping it would reset...


It sounds as if you key pad is sticking. PF means that there is an input power problem but could be caused by the sticking keypad.. As far as the unit starting bu itself, the only thing that can cause that is the keypad.. Try running your fingers flat across the panel several times both vertically and horizontally and see if the pad malfunction clears. It will probably repeat in the future but you could get lucky and have a one time instance. The keypad itself is just a bit over $75.00 if it has failed. Good luck.

Lite bulb & fan stopped working but oven works fine.


had the same problem (self induced) and shorted out the oven.  took the control board out and found i had burned the circuit between the connector and high/low light microswitch.  just jumped the circuit with a piece of solder, reinstalled the board and the fan and light started working. it doesn't have a low light setting anymore but who cares, just saved 130 bucks.  not going to tell my wife how i broke it, only how i fixed it. very proud of myself and learned a little bit, mainly unplug the unit before working on it.

Error code of F-3.


F3H —Humidity Sensor Failure: Refer to the Tech Sheet and test the sensor.
The microwave oven may be provided with a self diagnostic routine that can be operated through the touch pad keyboard. To enter the self-diagnostic routine:
1.While pressing the CANCEL keypad:
a) Open the oven door.
b) Unplug the microwave oven for 2-seconds and plug it back in.
c) Release the CANCEL keypad and close the oven door. You will see the following display.
CHART
NOTE: The humidity sensor test results will appear on the display after 8-seconds.If the tests are successful, "OK " will be displayed. If one or more of the tests fail, "ERR " will be displayed.. 2.When a keypad is pressed, a number according to the test chart will be displayed. When no keypad is pressed, a blank "—" is displayed.
If you want to try to fix it your self, Always remember Electricity is dangerous and should be treated with respect.
Microwaves are very dangerous, they can still shock you even unplugged!!
Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it. With the microwave unplugged.
If my attachment made it, it shows a common way to do this....
Good Luck!

Self start when door closes


if electronic control, one of two things come to mind. 1)your toutch pad is defective.replace it. 2)you electronic board has a leaky component.not very likly though. believe it or not, ive seen it start before by itself then i noticed a large quantity of bugs inside the glass which i realised triggered the microwave 0ff.
