Samsung Microwave -SE- Error

Sorry to bother you.
I was just wondering what ever happened with your microwave from this thread:
Ours is still having the same error.

handle broke off and the Samsung company has no replacement part - NONE. There is not even a factory making it at this time and none in storage.I have been waiting since March 29,2008,heard from them 3 times,but no solution or microwave.

    IT IS FIXED was REPLACED! I quit trying to get action from the online service dept,and just wrote a letter to Samsung in general with the complaint. 2 days later,a man called from the customer satisfaction dept. and said he would get it done,and a day after that,a service tech called in the AM and came out and replaced it that very afternoon.I was amazed.I Guess it really does depend on who you tell.

    I am quite pleased with this result.

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, see . The board alone is here: .

I hope this helps.

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.....
