Samsung microwave se or 5e error

The SE error code iss often mistakenly referred to as 5E. It occurs when a key on the keypad is pressed continuously or shorted. It is very dangerous, because your microwave may start running on its own and cause fire. If you ssee this code on your microwave’s display, unplug it right away and do not plug it baack in until you fix the problem. Also, to prevent it from running, you can leave its door open.

In some cases, the error may occur if the keypad strip is greased, dirty or moist. However, for the most part, it happens because of shorting and requires replacement. Please, do not be in a hurry to follow the numerous ‘video tips’ and ‘instructions’ advising methods like ‘paper inserts’ and similar stuff.

Samsung provides a service bulletin, which describes the only effective and correct solution and specifies models, to which these steps can be applied if they show this error code, intermittently or constantly. Please, do not use any other methods not relating to the bulletin.

Where do I find the model code and the model number?

The model number is printed on a tag inside the cooking chamber. It should be noted that a model number is not the ssame as a model code. The latter is found on the keypad’s connector, and you need to remove the entire control panel to read it.

Samsung microwave se error

If there is SE flashing on your microwave’s display, there is a sensor error. Most likely, the humidity sensor has shorted. You need to disassemble the device and check the sensor directly. The element may be located near one of the vents on the microwave’s cavity. In most cases, shorted humidity sensors have to be replaced.

Fixing it

Undo the two screws of the top vent, then one above the keypad. Take off the vent and the key pad VERY CAREFULLY. Disconnect wire harnesses. Try to remember each connection or picture them using a phone cam. Check all elements for moisture, which could have caused the short-circuit. Dry the system with condensed air. If necessary, leave it to sit open for several hours. Put your oven back together and test it. If the error is still there, address a professional technician.
