Sorry to bother you. I was just wondering what ever happened with your microwave from this thread: http://www.fixya.com/support/t244852-samsung_over_range_microwave Ours is still having the same error.
I have tried a few different things suggested for the Samsung microwave SMH8165 - flashing -SE- code. What finally seems to have stopped it is I took the keypad off and disconnected the connector for the thin 2 wire connector to the circuit board. They are towards the top of the board in the middle. They seem to go to the sensor that was malfunctioning. We do not use the sensor cook modes so that resolved the SE error.
To access Keypad
***Turn OFF POWER***
Unscrew two screws on top of Microwave vent panel (Top of Micro above door)
Remove vent by picking up and shifting left.
Removes screw at top of key pad.
Remove green ribbon cable at right hand side of panel
Turn power back on.

I had pretty much decided to throw it away since the cost to fix it by a ... Fixing a broken Samsung Microwave ...
Sorry but the -se- error code from the manual means:
An error of the oven may cause
low performance and problems
in safety. Stop using the oven
Call local SAMSUNG service
Look for the 1-800 number on the back and give them a call.
Maybe Just Lucky; I removed the front cover above the door by removing the two screws on top of micro. Then I removed the screw above the controll panel and carefully lifted off the panel. I checked all wire connections while plugged in and the SE code changed to 0. I reset the clock and put the panels back on. Done Loose Wire
I have the same "SE" problem. After reading this thread here, I realise it's likely the keypad problem, which explains the microwave's behaviour (no key was working). So there were two possibilities. (1)keypad failure and (2) bad connection. Obviously the easiest thing I could start with is to clean the connection. So I first take the cover off. Behind the keypad is a circuit board. In addition to a few connections between the circuit board and other parts of the microwave, there is a ribbon connecting the keypad to the circuit board. Loose the plastic on the connection, pull the ribbon out from the socket. I then used spirit to clean the exposed copper connections. Put every thing back to place. Voila, it's working again and we have been living happily ever after.....
