If it's possible to mute or turn down the volume, the owner's manual will cover it.
If not, you may want to take extreme measures, as shown in the video.

SOURCE: GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out

The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.

Hello,

the fault is from the magnetron of the microwave. The magnetron is gradually becoming defective, that's why you are hearing the buzzing sound. As a matter of fact, the magnetron is the one making that noise. Sooner or later, the microwave won't heat any longer when the case of the microwave gets worse.

First, you need to test the magnetron.

Testing a magnetron:

NOTE: Before you test this component, make sure your microwave is unplugged, and that you have discharged the capacitor. To learn how to discharge a capacitor, click here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7088317-discharge_microwave_ovens_capacitor



There are two tests to conduct in order to determine whether or not a magnetron has become defective. If you receive results other than what are detailed below, you will have to replace your microwave's magnetron. Each test is described for you here:


TEST 1: Locate your magnetron and label each of the wires attached to it so that you know which wires are to be replaced where. Set your ohmmeter to the lowest resistance scale. Take a resistance measurement between each of the magnetron terminals by touching each probe to one terminal each. Reverse the probes and take a second resistance measurement. Each measurement should read less than one ohm.


TEST 2: Set your ohmmeter to its highest resistance scale. Touch one of the meter's probes to a magnetron terminal. Touch the other probe to the metal magnetron housing. Take special caution to not touch the two probes together. This could result in an inaccurate reading. This test should produce a reading of infinity - indicating an open circuit.


If you cannot perform the above task yourself, ask a family or friend that has the ability to assist you or have a certified and experienced appliance repair technician examine and replace your magnetron. This task is much too dangerous for the average layman to perform on his own.


Regards.

Emerson microwave not working 900 watts


The Emerson MW8999SB 0.9 cu. ft. 900 watt Microwave Oven is relatively compact, and certainly inexpensive, but doesn't skimp on functionality. We were surprised at all the options you get with this little microwave. It's only 20 inches wide, 11.3 inches high and 16.1 inches deep yet. The interior can still accommodate a regular size dinner plate or small (10-inch-square or round) casserole. Plus, there are 10 power levels, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, timed and automatic defrost options, and a rotating glass turntable to circulate the food for more even cooking.

We were very pleased with the performance of the Emerson MW8999SB. It did a fine job heating water for tea, cooking a couple of baked potatoes, reheating leftovers and steaming fresh vegetables. Even the automatic defrost proved surprisingly efficient, letting you enter the weight of the item(s) to be defrosted (4-100 ounces) for easy operation. Chicken breasts were almost fully defrosted after one cycle. We needed to stop and separate the food pieces to finish the defrost cycle.

The unit is styled mainly in black but has stainless steel trim around the door and control panel. The smooth touchpad control panel is attractive and easy to wipe clean. We loved the one-touch Express Cook buttons, which let you activate the unit at 100 percent power for 1-6 minutes, by pressing the corresponding number pad. We also appreciated extra touches such as the Start/+30 sec. button, which can be used to start the oven or add an extra 30 seconds each time it is depressed.

It's hard to go wrong when the functions are so simple. The only tricky part was identifying certain codes used on the display screen. When changing the power level, for instance, PL10 is displayed on the screen. Pressing the button additional times lets you toggle through the different levels. Likewise, the Auto Cook settings may need to be pressed multiple times to obtain the correct weight or portion for the food being cooked.

We were amazed that a machine costing so little also offered two-stage cooking, which lets you start cooking (or defrosting) on one setting and finish on another. All in all, the Emerson MW8999SB is an excellent value.


Pros: Touchpad controls, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, two-stage coking option
Cons: Limited interior capacity can only accommodate dishes up to 10 inches, no sensor

There is a beep noise every 60 seconds 24 hours/day... what can we do to stop it? microwave model JTP85WOA2WW serial # zv676667q


My microwave beeps once every minute to let me know that it has finished cooking. If I open the door, then close it, the beep stops.

Jul 14, 2011 | GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Works fine, except the beeps suddenly went silent. Examples: 1. When food is finished cooking, no beep any longer. 2. When pressing any key to set for cooking, no beeps any longer. Never thought that...


On page 21 of the owner's manual (online here), that's covered under "AUDIBLE SIGNAL ELIMINATION":

If you wish to have the oven operate with no audible signals, touch CUSTOM HELP, the number 2 and STOP/CLEAR.

To cancel and restore the audible signal, touch CUSTOM HELP, the number 2 and START/MINUTE PLUS.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Occassionally (about 5% of the time) the microwave continues to cook and buzz after the timer has run out and the fan stops running.


sounds like the program bord is faulty,, when your finished cooking leave the door open a little that will save the microwave from trying to cook nothing?

From what you have described, it appears that the microwave oven works fine, except that the beeper doesn't work like it used to.

This could be caused by a couple of things.

First, there is typically a piezo electric speaker that creates the "beeping" sound. It's possible that this part has failed. It's a mechanical device and can break. This part is relatively inexpensive.

The piezo speaker is controlled by the microprocessor board. It's possible that there is a problem with one of the output lines from the microprocessor that is tied to the speaker.

One way to determine which part is defective, is to try connecting another speaker in parallel across the original speaker, or remove the original and try the replacement (least expensive method).

If there still is no sound, then I would suspect the problem is on the microprocessor board. (most expensive method).

If I can be of further assistance to you, please let me know.

Good Luck!
- Jim
