-SE- error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

There are three ways you can get it fixed:

DE34-00178X SWITCH MEMBRANE $20.30
ref#53 membrane keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, peel the old keypad off as in this handy guide with pictures , clean the surface, stick on the new keypad
order by part number here
(We can do this job for you for a total of $70.25, but as you can see, the other two options are more practical and economical)

DE94-01647A ASY CONTROL PANEL $39.01
ref#66 control panel frame with keypad
take yours off as in the video at our site, disconnect the keypad strip as shown here, move your circuit board to the new frame, reinstall
order by part number here

DE94-01648A ASY CONTROL, BOX $58.12
ref#59 complete control panel assembly with frame, keypad and circuit board
take yours off as in the video at our site, then install the new one
order by part number here

If these parts are not in stock, they should be available in about a week or so.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have a se or 5e code what is it


Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave is displaying the error code "SE" or "5E". I have researched and the error code seems to be "SE" which means keypad is stuck. In order to remove the error code the keypad would need to be replaced.

Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

I have a Kenmore microwave with an error code SE or 5E model No: 401.80082700


The SE error code means the microwave has had a Key short error. The control panel or smart board will need to be replaced.
Not really a DIY job. Microwaves can retain up to 2200V even when unplugged.
control panel frame assembly ("control") , which comes with a new keypad already installed lists for $59.99 fyi.

<- Let me know your full model number from the tag on your oven so I can give you detailed information repair.

Unless there is grease or moisture on your control circuit board, "SE" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

My SMH9151W Samsung Microwave displays a -SE- or a -5E- and will not operate. I unplugged over night and still will not operate


I had the same issue on a 2010 smh9151w samsung microwave after installing it and using it with no problem for 5 days. The second time we unplugged the microwave and turned the circuit breaker off and on we didn't reset the clock on the microwave so the display shows :0 and it has been working for 7 days straight now. Fingers crossed that this is a long term solution. Hope this helps. Thanks!
