Turn off Beep on old Magic Chef microwave

Built 1988, part no ACV9ZZM15

Is there a keypad sequence that will turn off the Beep sound? This old microwave is in use in an office next to a conference room. The beep is really loud when making keypad entries... and there are three obnoxious and long beep tones when finished.

Any help for this old machine? It still seems to work fine otherwise.

On some older models, there is a sliding switch on the bottom edge of the control panel that turns it off. I've seen these on older Amanas, but not sure about others.

In newer models, they have some kind of help key which will get to to a menu which will turn it off.

Other models in between usually don't have that feature. In such cases, I as a technician have removed the beeper or taped over it to make it quieter, or even lifted one leg of a resistor attached to the beeper.

Someone less technical or less patient could just push the beeper sideways until it snaps off. No more beeps! *grin* And really, it is much weaker than the circuit board so it's a viable, if inelegant solution.

One other thing is to call Magic Chef with your model number:

I have a Magic Chef microwave over the range (Model: MCO160ub). It is about 2 1/2yrs old and recently it just shut down, the keypad does not operate.and nothing will come on. Previously, it had shut down...


If you could get it to reset by unplugging it I would suspect a problem with the main timer board. A blown fuse or bad connection wont reset by unplugging it. You would need to find a parts dealer who carris Magic Chef parts and give them your model number and ask for price and availability on the main PCB the printed circuit board
( timer board)

Microwave oven turns on by itself and powers off


It sounds like the keypad is shorting.

Glad you unplug it, since it can be very dangerous.

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.

For more help from Magic Chef / Ewave see here or their contact page.

Or refer your landlord to this info.

My microwave magic chef mco160uw just keeps turning on by itself. The microwave is only about 5 months old


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you have a failed keypad.

This can be dangerous, and you should keep it attended to when in use (as with any microwave) and unplugged when not in use.

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.
