Kenmore microwave error code

I got error code E-12 on the display of my Kenmore microwave model # 401.80083010. I was able to clear it with the "stop/clear" button, but what does it mean?

I was unsuccessful in finding information on your microwave with the model number provided

401.80083010.

Most error codes are generated as a result of irregularites in the power supply or usaage.

If the error return's due to the possibility of electrical shock. Microwave ovens hold a 25,000 volt charge even when disconnected from power. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your microwave.

Thanks, Robert, for the response. I wasn't able to find my specific model on here either. It's only 2 months old. I think it may be because I purchased it through Sears Commercial and it may not be available through retail. I forgot to add that the error happened after using the "pizza" button to reheat a slice of pizza. Other than the error, the microhood didn't seem to do anything out of the ordinary.
