The power to the microwave goes off before the required cook time is up. The entire thing goes blank, no clock, no timer, no fan. Nothing works. Finally power restores itself in 20-25 minutes. Very frustrating to have food only 1/2 cooked and be unable to finish it. Is this perhaps a sensor problem??

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.

Maytag microwave overheated and shut off - Model #MMV5165BA


That is not good, the magnetron has gone, or the thermal fuse has failed, "protects the magnetron from overheating" There is a possibility the keypad control board was a affected.

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.

Microwave not working stating error 3 or error sensor or just coming on by itself. we have tried shutting down circut breaker


Hello

"ERR 3" means that the magnetron units have failed in the microwave. Food will not cook or heat up when the microwave is in use.

This code is different than "ERR 1" or "ERR 2" because with those the microwave is still operational. "ERR 3" means a complete failure.

The magnetron is the main source of power and heating in a microwave. Magnets work inside a magnetron tube to create the heat and voltage needed to cook items.

Bring the microwave back to the retailer or a repair shop for service. You may also consider purchasing a whole new microwave if the prices are cheap enough.

I have a 3-year old Amana microwave installed above my stove. Last night I was baking two potatoes in the microwave. I noticed that the microwave sounded "louder" than normal. After about 13...


No! But it will need to be repaired. Did you wrap the potatoes in tin foil? The reason for the smoke needs to be found and repaired. Smoking means a short or a part shorted, failed, or wires touching another wire that did not blow any fuss.That is not good.
Trained technicians can help the mfg improve their products if they find the problem and report it to the Mfg.
