"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

The exact part you need will depend on the model number, which will be one of these:

SMH9151B SMH9151B/XAA SMH9151B/XAC SMH9151BE SMH9151BE/XAA SMH9151S SMH9151S/XAA SMH9151ST SMH9151ST/XAA SMH9151ST/XAC SMH9151STE SMH9151STE/XAA SMH9151W SMH9151W/XAA SMH9151W/XAC SMH9151WE SMH9151WE/XAA.

On some models, you can just order a new membrane keypad and replace it. It's cheap, but a lot of work.

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. It's here.

On other models,
the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job, but it costs more.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help and a free estimate for us to do it for you.

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

"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

There are three ways to fix this:

The cheapest but most difficult is to remove and replace the membrane 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.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

MEMBRANE KEYPAD
5304456071 (black)
5304456071 (white)

You can replace the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

This costs is a little more, but is much easier.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

CONTROL FRAME WITH KEYPAD
5304456078 (black)
5304456079 (white)

The simplest way of all is to replace the whole control box.

Here are the part numbers, which you can order from the Pros here (our favorite supplier) or via the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

ENTIRE CONTROL BOX
5304456080 (black)
5304456081 (white)

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

Why does screen say SE


SE = Sensor Error, its reported that it could be components bent over, and touching each other on the PCB behind the keypad.
You need to be a fair bit mechanically savvy to attempt a repair, and remember to Unplug it before you do! :-)

Samsung microwave says-SE- but won't respond otherwise


"SE" means you have a defective membrane keypad.

With your full model number, I could have given you detailed instructions and parts numbers.

But without that, I'll have to just be generic.

If your model's membrane keypad is available as a separate part, that's usually the cheapest but most involved way to fix it.

Here is a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If it's not available separately, then you can replace either the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad on it, or the entire control box / controller assembly.

There is a a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The microwave started flashing SE the display and beeps every once in a while


The "se" stands for shorted keypad. Pretty much the keypad on your microwave is fried. There\'s a wide range of ways it could\'ve happened but you have two options. You can either dissemble the microwave and order parts online for a replacment keypad or buy a new microwave.

Screen displays -SE- , none of the keypad buttons work


The word -SE- , means systems error, the cause is a short in the membrane of the keypad. The only solution is the keypad must be replaced.
