Samsung microwave smh9187 error 5E or SE what to
Hi, I had the same problem and in my case the fix was easy. First the root cause: there is a ribbon cable inside the microwave that connects the control panel to the keypad, which is kind of folded. Over time, condensation will make two pieces of the ribbon cable stuck together, causing short circuit. The solution is to separate the pieces and put a piece of paper in between. First you need to access the control panel by unscrewing the top grill of the microwave. After removing the top grill, you will see a screw holding the control panel to the oven. Just unscrew that one and remove the control panel. You will then see the ribbon cable. Inspect whether it is folded and the two sides are stuck. If yes, just separate them and put a piece of paper in-between.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
- Check the power diodeThis
electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one
direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave
to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
- High voltage capacitorResponsible
for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave.
Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires
- Damaged magnetronResponsible
for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no
longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
- Thermal CutoffsExamine
the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off
one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals.
If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

· 1Unplug your microwave. Insert the 15 Security Torx bit into your multi-bit screwdriver and remove the screwsfrom the back panel. Take off the back panel.
· 2 Locate thefuse. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the microwave. Thefuse is a small white bar with metal caps on either end. Carefully remove thefuse. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the microwave.
· 3 Purchase anew fuse. Most Samsung microwave ovens use an 18 amp ceramic fuse. Consultyour owner's manual to find out what kind of fuse is used, or take the old fuseinto the store to find the exact match.

If the microwavestill does not turn on, you may have to have it replaced of the second instruction. above to locate the wiring connection if there is any wrong to be replace.
MY MICROWAVE TURN ON BY ITSELF AND I BOUGHT IT ON
First of all saturday is the 30th of april and there is no 31 st for April . BEing a new set it is most important that you do not try or attempt to open the set as the set is under warranty. So disconnect and keep aside for some time, clean the pads and check, if not call for support to the dealer.
I've just moved into
Hi, this is usually a bad touchpad. The way to tell for sure is to kill power to the unit, take the control panel down and unplug the ribbon connector that connects touchpanel to the clock. Put it back together and reapply power. The clock will just sit there blinking and, obviously, the buttons won't work, either. if the beeping stops, then the touch panel is bad. And If it still beeps, then you have a bad clock.
I have the Samsung microwave
SE stands for "sensor error". It means that your humidity sensor has
shorted and unfortunately needs to be replaced. You will need to
uninstall the entire unit and remove the outer shell to access the
sensor that needs to be replaced. It will be mounted somewhere around
one of the vent on the cavity of the microwave.
It must be replaced, there is no way to clean it. The part itself is
usually about $30 so depending on the cost of your microwave it may or
may not be worth it.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
Hi there , i have
Hold the"0" button and then press the "2" button. The display shows "Loc". It is now in locked state and can't be used. to remove the lock, repeat the above steps.
Dont turn on at all
It seems that there's a problem with the power transformer or the power PCB . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service for repairing .
To locate the fuse, remove the outer cabinet of the unit, which is usually held in place with a few screws. Once the outer cabinet is removed, follow the power cord into the unit. It will take you to the fuse holder, where the fuse sits. The fuse holder is located two or three inches into the unit, and may be attached to a power board .
CAUTION: a microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. We strongly suggest you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair.
good luck .
please don't forget to rate !
My micro wave is not heating up
Assuming the elects are ok. Could be a thermal cut off has gone or more serious the Magnatron,I suggest an engineer for both faults...
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
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".
I need to find some
You can locate the correct bulb that you need at www.repairclinic.com
. They have an extensive assortment for all appliances. When you search for your bulb keep in mind to put in the complete model # that is on your unit. Also this site can help you find a different replacement since it shows the type and size of bulb. Go by the wattage rating and what it looks like to fit right in. There are other similar sites and even belonging to Delonghi.com but I believe the repairclinic site is better.
Samsung microwave oven model #ME21K7010DS/AA
Judging from reviews of this model on Samsung's website, this is a common problem. Does it happen during or after using the cooktop or range below the microwave oven? In particular, is it most common when using the burner directly under the microwave oven control panel?
If the issues are correlated to heat or humidity from cooking on the range top, I would suspect problems with moisture in the keypad circuitry. I would consider cleaning the controller board key panel connector area with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol (this is an internal service on a circuit board that is most likely susceptible to damage by static electricity, so it should be done by someone who knows how to service electronics). This should remove contaminants that could cause current leakage between keypad connections (spurious keypad entries) in humid conditions. Let the board dry thoroughly before reconnecting.
It's also possible that moisture is getting into the keypad assembly. This would be a design/manufacturing flaw. I would guess the oven is out of warranty, so the fix would be to put the keypad in a dessicator for a day or so, then seal the edges with RTV Blue or a similar caulk that does not release acetic acid (vinegar) during the curing process. (Acetic acid even in vapor form may corrode the silver contact material in the keypad.) Do not seal the connector, just the edges of the flex ribbon layers where moisture can get into the key membranes.
In the meantime, always use the microwave oven fan when cooking on the range. This will help to keep the controller cool and dry. (Samsung's troubleshooting guide says the fan will turn on automatically if the microwave oven gets too warm from cooking underneath it.)
