Question about Bosch HMB402 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Mind of its own!

This will challenge all. At between 3am and 4:30 am every night the microwave beeps 5 times every ten minutes (exactly) four or five times! It usually starts at 3:22 and ends at 4:02. Since I fall asleep on the couch near the kitchen this wakes me up many nights. I have cleared every control on the microwave and it still does it. I have turned off the sound and it still does it! I have unplugged and replugged and it still does it. I have tried simulating the experience by setting the clock to 3am during the day and it doesn't do it. I am about to lose my mind over this problem. I feel that I am a very logical trouble shooter but this has me stumped. Any ideas? Thanks for considering my problem. Sincerely Johneli

New unit used 3 days. Microwave beeps and screen goes to menu, or set time screen. Sometimes changes the date all by itself. Does this in the middle of the night all night long.

I advice you to contact service if it has guarantee. This seems to be a psychological problem about your oven(!). Technical person need to do an electronic research surgery on its board to see if there is any wrong thing.

Hi, W/D here.

Leave unplugged for a longer time, say 5 minutes. I have done this twice on my own, and it has worked, but it took about 5 minutes.

Microwave shuts down after cooking three or four minutes

Your magnetron is overheating and tripping the thermostat, which interrupts power until it cools.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Kenmore microwave 721 Displays 66:66 and beeps

Try first unplugging power cable for ten minutes, and see if it clears the error.

Satanic microwave

Dude, that totally happened to my boyfriend and me! He woke up in the middle of the night to the beeping and went downstairs to check it out. It was like 3am and the microwave started displaying all 6's. Then a helicopter flew right over our apartment and he started really flipping out. Talk about scary.
