Oven beepstwice every 10 min.

After using the oven, it beeps twice every 10 min. (exactly 10). Only after pulling the power plug and resetting it will stop the beeping. And then it repeats after the next using of the oven. How can I reset it permanently?

Re: oven beepstwice every 10 min.

Looking at the owner's manual, it would seem that the beep is supposed to occur at one minute intervals when cooking is completed. You may need to press the CANCEL pad to make it stop, but I would assume you shouldn't have to. I would assume that when the control panel senses that the door has been opened, it should stop beeping. It sounds like the code in the microprocessor has been corrupted, but only replacement of the chip would fix that. The owner's manual is online at: ( a better URL is ) You might consider calling Samsung support at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864) Mon-Sun: 9am-9pm (EST). Good luck.

Just stopped working as we were heating something up. checked the plug with other electronic device and it worked.

Try tripping the breaker on the circuit that it is on, and leave powered down for ~10 minutes. This will sometimes reset these ovens (has happened to me twice, and this "fixed" it both times.

Good luck,

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....

Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting

Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Try to unplug the micowave and let it stay unplugged for 10 -15 minutes. Plug it back in after 10-15 mins and see if it resets the error message.
