Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

How old is this microwave now? And do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker inside the microwave cavity and can be seen if you open the door.

I am sorry it is a tappan microwave. the model no is TMV151FB. it was manafactured in september 2007

OK perfect, thank you. So error SE on this model means that your touchpad has an internal short and the touchpad would need to be replaced. The touchpad on the control panel will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue and below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace the issue.
