built in 3/94 is it worth fixing how much for magetron

Maybe a failed triac that switches the motor and light. Also try pulling it out from the wall for some time.

SE error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

The full model number would be MMV1153AAB or MMV1153AAW and denotes color.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly ("control panel/switch" as it's called) which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.


Some connectors have a lock:


Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

You can get the part from the Pros here. They're our favorite supplier.

If power turns on or interior light goes on, it is not the fuse.

<- 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.

I have the same problem with mine!!! I spent 58 dollars to have a 6 dollar diode replaced. Now 8 months later... same prob. Replaced again myself and working fine again. Just make sure you label the wires while working on it. I didn't and it cost me 2 new fuses! Hope this helps.

I think the battery is under the back seat

If the model number is correct, there is a 125V, 20 AMP line fuse inside the microwave. Its usually mounted at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. You will need to UNPLUG the microwave oven and remove the exterior case to access. The case comes off in various ways depending on manufacture and model. I found this illustration at pcappliancerepair.com based on the model number you listed this question under:

The line fuse is listed as item 12.

You can usually purchase a box of fuses at a hardware store for just a little more than what the manufacturer charges for a single fuse. 125V, 20AMP Ceramic Slow Blow fuses are recommended.

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance troubleshooting, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: Make sure you take any resistance readings with the microwave UNPLUGGED and the component under test isolated (removed) from the circuit.
