If it beeps for just a few seconds after being unplugged from the wall, that's not a problem.

It's likely just the software or hardware feature utilizing a "sanity timer" to alert you when the oven loses line power. It's similar to a freezer alarm or sump pump alarm.

If this doesn't seem to answer your question or address your situation, please e-mail me and remind me of your symptoms and include your full model number as shown on the label.

1. Microwave noise 2. keyboard and beeping


Make sure oven is plugged into a grounded outlet, and that the outlet is actually grounded.
Although extremely rare, I have seen ovens where insects were walking on the back side of a control panel, and causing problems. Could also just be some sort of electronic failure.

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.

Our microwave, Kitchenaid KBMC140HSSO keeps on beeping. When we unplug it, it stays for a while ok and than all of a sudden it starts beeping again. what do we have to do?


That model would be KBMC140HSS0 *(zero not "oh") and there should be one last number on the end. Check the tag in or on the unit for the full model number.

Your membrane assembly is shorting, and it will be one of these part numbers, depending on model / color:

4453028 Black
4453029 White
4452882 Biscuit
4453025 Stainless

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

My microwave is possessed!


You have a shorting membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted, so please reply directly to me with your full number from the tag on the unit and your oven's color so I can help you with free do-it-yourself tips and/or an estimate.

Have a new Emerson MW9710W microwave. Had it


My daughter is having the same problem as you are having. Thing is we bought it for her new. She had not used it at all for a year. They finally bought a house, started using it in May. It is now doing the exact things yours is doing. Is there some kind of recall notice on these microwaves or what is wrong and how do we fix it?

F3 flashing on display screen..no buttons work!


I have the same problem. However when I unplug the microwave from the wall outlet, let it sit for 10 seconds, then weird codes appear on the top line. Reset the clock and it shold work just fine.

Buttons dont work on danby microwave


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 that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

If it still isn;t working I would contact Danby Customer Service US / Canada.

JVM1490 IS BEEPING EVERY 4-5 MIN ONE BEEP


The manual states that it will beep once a minute after food cooks until you open the door or press stop. Other than that, it sounds like an error condition. But you might contact the GE Answer Center at 1-800-626-2005 Monday 6 a.m. ET through Saturday midnight ET. The owner's manual is available here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/
