The beeper sound level can be adjusted.

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

Built in GE Microwave/electric oven combo. How to increase the volume on the alarm timer on the microwave? It is now suddenly almost inaudible.


I would check the settings. A glitch may have reset them.

Otherwise, I would unplug the oven for a minute, plug it back in, then reset the clock and try it again.

If you still need help, contact me via microwavecontrol.com with your full model number and detailed symptoms.

KOT-170SW volume of beeper dropped, can barely hear now. Any assistance appreciated. Norm NC3F normcherry@embarqmail.com


If the microwave is used rather often,the circuit board for the beeper does have a tendency to overheat ,what was once a "high pitched beep"is now a "low pitched beep".nothing can really be done to correct this.If the microwave is still covered by factory warranty,contact the factory.

Spacemaker xl (1999)low volume beep


According to the owner's manual (available here), there is a beeper volume on some models in this series. If yours has one, press it and then press 0 to 3 to control the volume (0 mutes the beeper and 3 is loudest).

If your model doesn't have the beeper volume control it's just that the beeper is going bad. They sometimes do that, getting faint or quitting entirely. You can't get a replacement beeper from GE, only the entire control circuit board.

The beeper is a piezoelectric type. Radio Shack sells a variety of beepers. If you know someone who can replace electronic components, they may have one that could be used on the board. Changing the beeper for one not the same as the original would not affect the oven's operation or safety, so that's an option. I'd do that myself if I were repairing this for a friend. But you might not be able to get a professional service shop to do this because of liability concerns. They would most likely replace the entire board.

With luck, your oven just has the volume down. Hope this has helped, and thanks for using Fixya!

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.

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".

The beeps have become inaudible.


The beeper sound level can be adjusted. Press the BEEPER VOLUME button, then choose 0–3 for mute, medium or loud.

If that doesn't work, unplug the oven a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual you can find and download one here:
