You need to take the back cover off using a special tork wrench. If you don't have one a thin blade screw driver usually works. after getting the back cover off access is pretty easy to remove the screws from the panel. Make sure to discharge the capacitor before attempting any repairs and unplugged of course.

1. Unplug the microwave or turn off its breaker.

2. Open the door, then detach the control panel as shown in the video at and swing it down, but without disconnecting the wires.

If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.

    Hello lisajwalls - Usually this type of information is not release to someone who is not a technician (or to a consumer) and it is very rare to find enough information to do it yourself. Since this is a complex unit, typically this is something that you want a certified professional to install for you to prevent any exposure to radiation, safety and liability reasons. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. Consider contacting your manufacturer for more details on who in your area can properly install this part. (part usually have a 30 day warranty with tech). I would suggest contacting your manufacturer to provide you a listing of authorized technicians in your area whom may guide you through this process

    SE or 5E display on Samsung Model number SMH8165ST

    This microwave is a piece of garbage and Samsung are a bunch of idiots. I have a solution but first I will vent. One day after my warranty ran out, I started getting this SE error. They referred me to an authorized repairman, who said it would be $200 just to come and look at it! Thats for a microwave that sold for slightly more than that new! Samsung refuses to offer any do it yourself help. Some guy who works on microwaves told me to order a new control panel. part DE94-01806C It was about 36 dollars and took about 10 minutes to install. If you want to save a little, for 24 dollars you can just replace the membrane. That requires removing the existing membrane with a hair dryer and then carefully applying the new one. Seemed like too much trouble so I went with the control panel.
