Good Morning, I have at home a Maytag Microwave Oven model

Customer Question

Good Morning,
I have at home a Maytag Microwave Oven model MMV4203DS00, Serial # ***** for the last 3 years.
Since we have being traveling for a long time, it has worked very little in the last 1 1/2 years.
When we came back from our long trip, we try to use it and it is not starting. A few seconds after it is connected to the electricity, it shows on the screen a ----SE---- code and lock everything.
Could you help me to solve this problem?

So error -SE- is a very straight forward error and it means that your touch control panel has an internal short. To be clear, the display board itself is not the problem--that is a separate part. You'll need to order and replace the touch control panel which is rather expensive at about $180 if you wanted to fix the issue. There is only a 1 year warranty on this part unfortunately so I don't think Maytag will help you with the repair even if very little use was done on it. You're more than welcome to call them, but Whirlpool (who owns Maytag) is very strict about their warranty times. Below is a link to the touchpad you'd need to order for your model to fix the issue.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
