Hey everyone,  I am working on a Maytag above the range microwave oven, Model No: MMV1153BAS and Serial No: 13274069LE, Manufactured: 03/2007.  Once a while the microwave will shut down and lock up where nothing will work and the control panel will display a 5E or SE fault code.  I took the front and top grill off but can not find any information about the code and what it means.  My customer will unplug it for a while and then it will work again (for a while).  Does anyone know what this fault code means and how do I fix it.  A service manual what be helpful if anyone has one on this model.  Thanks for all your help! Tom

I'm pretty sure that's a code for a shorted keypad. I ran into that code about 6 months back. Same scenario, intermittent and unplugging would clear the code for a while. The tech sheet (should be behind the console) didn't list that error. Whirlpool tech support advised it was a bad keypad. I replaced it & it solved the problem.

I ran into that code today. Kind of weird that it uses the same exact code that Samsung uses for their touchpad. Makes me wonder if this certain model is made by Samsung.

I guess not weird. Just confusing when going to work on it. I worked on a GE laundry center about a month ago and took the front panel off and it was a dead giveaway that it was made by Whirlpool. I ended up using Whirlpool parts to fix it rather then order all the GE parts that I didn't have.
