I have a Samsung household
Try calling Samsung....
Purchased samsung SMH8165ST in Oct 2009. have had the SE code problem for a few month now. Resetting worked at first. Then the light started flasing on & off along with the beeping...would not reset. Out of frustration I called Samsung. I was told they are aware of the problem & would repair in the "epidemic warranty". Repair man just left. It took him about 15 minutes to change out the keypad. No charge!!

Samsung microwave suddenly went dead
You have blown a fuse. Check inside the oven chamber and look for missing powder paint or signs of arcing, if so there is a paint to repair microwaves for this issue or else just dispose of the microwave. If the inside is good remove all the screws and remove the cover. Replace the fuse. If the magnetron was making louder noises prior then replace the magnetron. Since the fuse went the giant capacitor is likely bad. While the cabinet is open make sure to look for burned wires, check the continuity of thermal cutoffs, and check the main circuit-board for burned traces or components. The relays in most electronics are known for arcing (spot welding) and staying in the wrong position. Tap them hard with the back end of a screwdriver. During all of this use safe electrical practices by having the power cord unplugged. The capacitor could still have a high charge on it so be careful.

Interior light bulb
make this test and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU
- Light bulbIf your
microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first
step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not
correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to
verify if that is the problem.
- Light bulb socket & main control boardIf
your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a
new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they
are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the
next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root
cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

Error code s5
see this step and fix it. God bless you
SE or 5E codes are usually sensor problems. it is also a catch-all for a
keypad shorting issue. if it's either issue then it will need
professional service. to test the sensors:
SENSOR TEST (QUICK TEST)
1. With 2 fingers touch and hold the following pads at the same time :
pause and cancel
2. Observe diagnostic number in display (Numbers approximate)
ex) 33 (Vs) 39 (Vout)
? Vout Vaule : 10~150 (Normal-verify with "detection test" )
? Over 150 or Less than 10 (Sensor failed. Check connection of Sensor.)
