    That's usually a sensor error, but you should be able to use it to some degree...

    The first thing to try
    is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it
    back in, set the clock, then try again.

    Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Our 17 year old Tappan Microwave Model # 564878 quit heating. Everything else works. Hard reset did not remedy the problem. Any suggestions?

What does SE mean on Sears microwave oven


I believe that means you have a shorted keyboard. You will have to replace the keyboard/control console assembly.

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.

My amana microwave reads se and fan runs on its own. the keypad will not repsond at all. When unplugged for day then plugged back in works for few times then backl to same thing. Cant afford to replace it....


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

You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

In most cases, it's economical to repair this problem, and many DIYers can do it.

But we would need your full model number form the tag in or on the unit to steer you further.

Please make a new post or contact me directly with your full model number.

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

Microwave keypad does not respond and screen reads SE


"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.

5 E error on samsung microwave


An "SE" error on a Samsung microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

You can check here to see if your model may have been involved in a recall to fix a defective keypad, etc.

If not, then there are possibly 3-4 options to get it fixed, some DIY, some not.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptom, "SE error".
