The SE error means you have 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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit ehind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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 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:

SAMSUNG MICROWAVE SHOWS SE AND WILL NOT WORK.WHY?


SE is an error code for a shorted keypad, although the keypad might not really be shorted.

Unplug the oven for a few minutes to see if it clears the error code. If not, then leave it unplugged over night. If the problem persists, then you probably do have a shorted membrane switch on the keypad.

low performance and problems

immediately.
Call local SAMSUNG service
centre.
Look for the 1-800 number on the back and give them a call.

The display is showing the letters SE. What does this mean?


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

The solution is actually a pretty simple DIY job - to replace the control panel frame assembly - which comes with a new keypad already installed.

If I had your full model number from the tag on the oven I could likely give you step by step instructions with the part number you need.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here, where you can also e-mail me directly.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

You can order parts by entering your full model number here. The membrane is reference number 25 on the control panel parts list.
