Looking at the owner's manual, there is no shutoff listed.

One way to make it quieter is to put a piece of electrical tape over the piezoelectric beeper.

To silence it, you would need to cut one connection to it, desolder it, or simply break it off.

How do I turn off Kenmore Microwave Beeping?

I've got a Honda Civic hybrid with the same noisy beeper. I can't have the parking lights on and the door open. I can't leave the key in the switch while making a phone call etc. I think we have to presume that like the Honda, there is no software controlled override on you microwave beeper... they know best and want you to feel safe and secure that no burglar will be able to make a cup-o-soup in your kitchen without waking you. A few screws and you should be able to expose the main circuit board and apply a layer of bubble gum or silicone caulk or JB Weld to the beeping device. Most have a small hole in a black plastic cylinder... so cover the hole and then test for loudness. For absolute silence, desolder the device from the circuit board and replace with a resistor matching the amount you measure across the beeper contacts with an ohm meter.

Clock timer volume too low

The beeper sound level can be adjusted.

Press the "BEEPER VOLUME" pad on the keypad, then select 0–3 for mute to loud.

Beeper is too loud

If you can take good photos of both sides of the board, I can probably show you what resistor to remove.

You could replace that with a trimmer potentiometer I can specify for your from Radio Shack.

Feel free to contact me directly if you'd like.

I have a Sanyo Microwave Z2001S. The beeper is so loud that it wakes everyone up in the mornings. Is there anyway to disconnect it?

1.Some microwave has option to turn the sound off or make it low by pressing some keys on control panel. Find the manual book.
2. If this is really necessary then you can turn it off by cutting one wire to the small speaker on control board.

Disabling the beep on a Kenmore microwave

I have Kenmore microwave model 721.61820100.
It has an "Option" button. Press it. The display say "NUMBER"
Then press "1". The display should say "SOUND" and then "OFF".
Press "Start" and that beast turns silent, well not really, but the beeps are goooone.

If for some reason you don't like it this way repeat the sequence and the sound this time will turn "ON".

Today is the day my microwave stopped working

Magnatron is suspect.
Need to put a voltmeter on the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there)
Should be getting 120Vac when it goes to cook cycle.
Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer.
If the power is there, you are looking at replacing the magnatron.
Could also be the high voltage capacitor or diode.
Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

This is usually due to a failure of a door switch or a broken door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

If you need a part that's not locally available, check at but leave off the dash when you enter your model number.
