It beeps at very key push
It beeps loudly 3 beeps when it is done
It beeps the same 3 beeps every 2 minutes for eternity
When you open the door, it beeps
When you change a setting, it beeps
The beep cannot be stopped, it cannot be silenced
I found online someone dampened the beep,
but only by taking off the beeping back,
and shoving a beeping screwdriver into the beeping speaker
That sounds beeping dangerous

The final straw, the other day I open the door, set the time and turned away for just a second to grab my food, it beeped to let me know I had waited too long and the time I'd entered had been cleared.

It is difficult to change the temp settings or get them back to normal, food has been burned or barely warmed before because of this.

I've put up with this damn thing for 4 years. It was a gift from a family member who was staying with me when the old microwave that came with the house died. Well the custom space in the kitchen is for an older large model, but this is a small more modern (annoying) one.

I hate punching in #s, I wanted a dial microwave and thought they were non existant. Found one today for $59.99... it looks like you can only get the cheapos that aren't digital now. But being as I'm use to a small microwave now I don't think I'll have a problem.

It even has a dial you turn for the temp. If my grandmother didn't need a better microwave I'd spend my off day this week blowing the holy crap out of the evil thing.

I rtfm, I even went online and did research, there is no option to disable or turn down the beep. Obviously I would have done that before searching for a new unit & spending $

Be sure to crinkle up some tin foil and microwave it before you throw it away. It makes for a pretty cool show.

On a serious note, I would just take it apart and find the speaker. Then muffle it or disable it.

I think we have the same microwave. There is no using it if someone is sleeping in the house. It's a beep whore.

I can't post it because there is a lot of cursing, but there is a rant on this on youtube about this.

Do a search for "angry nerd microwave". Will be the second or third one from the top.


And agreed about the beeping. Kind of annoying. I'd be fine with a beep or two when it's done, but it just beeps so much.

I don't like the microwave beeping either. There is a pathetic lack of sophistication in appliance controls. Cheap digital wrist watches are smarter. I don't get it. Seems to me that smart, intuitive, user friendly appliances would be good sellers and cost very little more.

Just make sure you have her name on the inside of the mailbox.

What is worse that that is to try to find a beeping microwave that opens with the hinge on the right instead of the left. They don't make them. The only place for a microwave in my kitchen makes that very inconvenient!

The Angry Video Game Nerd, been watching him for about 7 years now. I've seen that video too, I felt like he was my long lost brother.
