Question about Maytag Appliances Over-the-Range Microwave Oven
The error code SE stands for " Systems Error " which indicates there is a short in the keypad membrane causing the system to lock up. The only option is to have the keypad replaced for normal operation.

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.
