SE is a sensor error.

Which is the moisture sensor and it will need to be replaced.

Which Sears calls it a Gas sensor why I do not know!!

But here is a link to the part. ?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=40180083700&subCompDesc=Cabinet%20parts&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=MICROWAVE&blt=11

this part can only be replace once the unit is pulled down off the wall.

Can you send me a pic? Or tell me the location of the sensor. And can I replace it myself?
