    I also have the Maytag MMV5165 and received an E-63 code after cooking popcorn.

    same error after cooking popcorn as well
    Popcorn was burnt
    instead of counting down the last seconds before end, it said popcorn the whole time, then the error code.

    We need to know why microwave is saying E-63. We too experienced it while popping popcorn.

I'm not finding that error code.

Does it come on 2 minutes after you plug it in?

If so, it may be a failing keypad or door switch / mount.

Of two minutes after you have been cooking?

That may indicate a bad humidity or other sensor.

Please give more detials so we can help further.

How do I fix error EA1 code on my samsung microwave

I assume you have this in a motor home/RV that's where they were used mostly. That error code is not a standard code. If you call Samsung you will be told it has to be serviced by a tech and they don't know what the error code is. In 4 years I've never been able to find a answer to E A1
besides have a service tech look at it, and mostly/always they end up recommending replacement.
If someone else at FIXYA knows different I too would like to know.
Sorry..don't like being the bearer of bad news but I wouldn't want you to throw parts/service at something and end up replacing it anyway.

Samsung microwave SMH8165W displaying error code -SE- and continuously beeps.

SE means system error, the keypad has a short in the membrane, or the control board has issues.

My microwave says E-63. What does that mean?

E63 is a "T1 Max Time error".

It may mean you have a bad PCB assembly, but I would suggest a hard reset.

Unplug it from the wall outlet for a minute, then plug it back in and try again.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Model # MMV5165BAW Error code - E-63

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Here's the explanation of that code:
E-63 T1 Max Time error. PCB assembly.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

Jenn Air Microwave Error Code

Hello Hec1152,
I have found the manufacturer contact information for you, but could not find information about the error code. If everything works fine, but the microwave is not heating your food, then the problem is most likely the magnatron or one of it's components, which sadly to say is the most expensive part to replace. Please feel free to contact the manufacturer via phone or live chat to get more details as to what the error code means.

If you would not mind, could you please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it.

I found the fix to the F3H error on another site. Just turn the power to the microwave off for ~2 minutes at the circuit breaker, and then turn it back on. Microwave will start working again then.

Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven.  If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.

If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.

For all error indications, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locater to find your nearest Authorzied Service Center

Hi Redd, You might have better luck posting this under Sharp TVs: The black lines at the top of the screen are usually an indication of a problem with the vertical output section. It's often bad electrolytic capacitors, the vertical IC, or both. That's apparently not a US model, so it will be hard to find the values but you could contact Sharp Philippines: SHARP (PHILS.)
