    I can "absolutely, positively" confirm that the track that +Joshua Day and +sass_jonatha are on the 'Right Track'~!
    I have a FFMV162LBA and if you know the right key combination you can enter 'Programming Mode' on anything electronic from a Timex Watch, to your Microwave to your cell phone. This concept has been around since the 70's but, not available until much, much later in the U.S. on residential equipment. If it has "Software" or at least a "Logic Circuit" to control the functions (in other words it can't be a mechanical switch) then it has a 'Programming Mode'. The engineers put them in the software or logic sequencer to enable Technicians to preform "Warranty Repairs".
    On the one prev mentioned (162LBA) by pressing the 'STOP/Cancel' button and holding it for 6secs then "All Keypad Functions are Disabled"~! To restore: again hold 'STOP/Cancel' for 6secs (this time the keypad will not beep, of course, when you touch the button).
    A call to Electrolux at 800 944 9044 in the USA should allow for some sort of phone tech support above the Customer Service level (this means you have to interface with Customer Service to get to that level).
    GOOD LUCK~!

    Cathy, is the microwave jsut Beeping on its own like you are pushing a pad? but you are no where near it?? You hear it from the other room?? If so the problem , mnost likely, is the touch pad. It has a colappsed air pocket for one of the pads, and the main board sees that like you are pushing the pad. The only fix is to replace the touch panel. Some are pricey, others not so bad. First unplug the unit, then The front panel where you puch the pads has to come off and the Controll board removed and the old panel taken off to put the new one on it. If youve never done this , you may want to check with a repair company for an estimate first. Probably can be repaired without taking down. Not a horrible repair.

The only way to stop the beeping is to push the cancel button then immediately open the door. This is the only microwave Ive ever encountered that doesn't stop the beeping when you either open the door or push the cancel button. To make it even more irritating, the beeps are VERY loud and long. Here is a short you tube video posted by someone who recorded this loud and long beeping I am referring to. https://youtu.be/pDq7LTpPNTY

All of these answers are wrong. You will have to remove the clock panel and remove the buzzer. You tube videos demonsteate.

First press "user pref" button, then the 2 button (for the sound menu) and then press the stop/clear button (for off).

    My microwave doesn't have a "user pref" button. I've tried everything. Nothing is working. There is no menu on this microwave that I can find.

    This worked. Hit Clock Settings twice, then Op-2 display, Hit Start+30 lo/nor/Hi/oFF scrolls. Touch Start at the oFF display.

All you need to do is hit stop once it starts to beep!

    Wrong. On these Frigidaire units neither opening the door or pushing cancel stops the beeps. It works on every other microwave on the planet, but not this one. To stop it you must push the cancel button then immediately open the door.

    correct actually. You have to hit stop BEFORE opening the door, and it will, in fact stop beeping. If you open the door first, it will NOT STOP for three long loud beeps.

How do i disable the beeper


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I see that your question is listed under Frigidaire microwave FFCE2238LW. Typically you will hear a series of beep once your food is done heating or defrosting has finished. For this purpose, the beeping signal cannot be deactivated and I show that the volume is not adjustable for your model. Most microwaves are preset to do this. Best regards! - Z

Can you turn down the beep on a Frigidaire microwave


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you want to turn down the beep on your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC. You are not able to turn down the beep, but you are able to turn it completely off. If you wish to have your microwave oven operate with no audible signals, touch Help, the number 2 and Clear/Off. To cancel and restore the audible signal, touch Help, the number 2 and START. Hope this is helpful.

Why has my frigidaire microwave (model PLEB30M9ECE) stopped beeping. It still cooks but no longer beeps


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLEB30M9ECE, is cooking, but has stopped beeping. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and try any cooking cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My child lock on my Frigidaire is constantly beeping... The door is not locked but it is beeping...


Hello Shelley, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand your Frigidaire is constantly beeping while they door is unlock, however do you have a range or microwave Frigidaire appliance? The serial tag for a range, which lists your model number, is typically located in the storage drawer, on the right side and the serial tag for a microwave is in the lower left corner as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!
