None of the buttons in the Samsung Microwave oven work. There is power but I am not able to use any button on the microwave. Nothing happens when I press any of the buttons.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still fails, you probably have a bad membrane keypad.

I'd need the model number to give you more free help or an estimate, so fee free to contact me if you'd like.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Built-in microwave: display works but oven does not.

You didn't mention your model number. If I knew that, I could check to see if it's one of the models subject to a recall for failed membrane keypads.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

5 E error on samsung microwave

An "SE" error on a Samsung microwave 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 please do not leave it running unattended.

You can check here to see if your model may have been involved in a recall to fix a defective keypad, etc.

If not, then there are possibly 3-4 options to get it fixed, some DIY, some not.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptom, "SE error".

Arcing inside microwave

unless you are familiar with these, leave it alone. Over time small particles of food become carbonized inside the oven, hence the electrical display. the solution is to clean it after every use.
