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.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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

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
Re attach
Turn power back on.

What does this mean on my Samsung smh9151 microwave oven? -SE-


The SE error indicates a short was detected at the key pad. This could be a problem with the wiring (dirt at a connection) or a bad circuit board. If your microwave is under warranty, contact Samsung.

Since microwaves have high voltage, you may not want to try to fix this yourself. If you do, make sure to be careful. Some have fixed the error after unplugging the microwave. Then disassemble the microwave keypad area. Disconnect the various wires and clean all of the contacts. (Do one wire harness at a time so that you replace them in the right place.) Reassemble and plug in the microwave. Test if the SE error returns. If the error remains, then the control board needs to be replaced. To get the entire keypad and control board, seehttp://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a6b160i468/Samsung-Microwave-Touchpad-And-Control-Panel-Parts . The board alone is here: http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a6b160i324/Samsung-Microwave-Control-Board-Parts .

I hope this helps.

Call local SAMSUNG service

Samsung microwave SMH8165W displaying error code -SE- and continuously beeps.


SE means system error, the keypad has a short in the membrane, or the control board has issues.

My Samsung microwave SMH9187W is getting a 5E or SE error code when I plug it in. Unplugging and replugging use to clear it for a bit but now it happens as soon as I plug it in. I am just out of warranty...


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.

Samsung Over range Microwave


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.....
