Sounds like the magnetron tube is no longer working. Check for a bad fuse but if fuse is good, then .......... Sorry.

The vent fan is thermostat controlled to protect the control panel. Once the panel temp drops, this will turn off by itself. This is normal for this to occur when your steaming and cooking for a long time. Good Luck

Hi maaki41,

The error code SE stands for a keypad is held down for longer than 10 seconds. If you were not holding down a button then you have a defective key pad because of the sensor error. You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Or just get it here, to be more exact.
On page 4, it says:

Request the diagram from Maytag.

The SE error code means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

you would need to replace either the membrane keypad or the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad already installed.

unfortunately, those parts for this model seem to be unavailable. So the only option would be if you can find a used or "New Old stock" part on eBay or at a local or online appliance parts store.

If you can find either of these parts, that will fix your microwave:



The support page for your microwave is here, where you can find manuals and a helpful exploded view part diagram.


Good luck.
