-se- is displayed on the screen, what does it mean?


Usually means "Sensor error". The problem is usually associated with the circuit board for your touch pad on the front of microwave. More than likely a bad contact/connection on one of the plugs in the back of that panel.
Just type the following in your search engine and the video explains it all. "samsung microwave se (5e) error fix". Hope this is your fix and that you are OK with taking it apart. MAKE SURE ALL POWER IS REMOVED BEFORE GETTING IN THERE!! good luck!

I have a se or 5e code what is it


Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave is displaying the error code "SE" or "5E". I have researched and the error code seems to be "SE" which means keypad is stuck. In order to remove the error code the keypad would need to be replaced.

Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

Microwave started beeping with nothing in it now it says SE or 5E


These issues are usally due to a defective touchpad or control board. Troubleshooting would require disconnecting the touchpad ribbon cable from the control board to see if that made the problem go away.

I have a Kenmore microwave with an error code SE or 5E model No: 401.80082700


The SE error code means the microwave has had a Key short error. The control panel or smart board will need to be replaced.
Not really a DIY job. Microwaves can retain up to 2200V even when unplugged.
control panel frame assembly ("control") , which comes with a new keypad already installed lists for $59.99 fyi.

5E display on maytag microwave


<- Let me know your full model number from the tag on your oven so I can give you detailed information repair.

Unless there is grease or moisture on your control circuit board, "SE" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

My SMH9151W Samsung Microwave displays a -SE- or a -5E- and will not operate. I unplugged over night and still will not operate


I had the same issue on a 2010 smh9151w samsung microwave after installing it and using it with no problem for 5 days. The second time we unplugged the microwave and turned the circuit breaker off and on we didn't reset the clock on the microwave so the display shows :0 and it has been working for 7 days straight now. Fingers crossed that this is a long term solution. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Says se on display


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
SE or 5E means shorted keypad and to solve this problem the keypad needs replacement, if it has already been replaced then it is better to replace the ribbon cable connecting the board. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
