So yes, you are definitely on the right track. Error SE means your touchpad has shorted. If you think it may have got wet or too much steam was present from boiling below the microwave when this error occurred, give it 24 hours to dry out and unplug the microwave in the mean time. If that doesn't work, replace the touch control panel. The part number you need is DE94-02411A and it's about $50 or so. Below is a link to the part.
