Want to disable reminder on microwave

I have an Oster microwave oven (model 0M0701A8B) and would like to disable the very annoying reminder sound it gives me if I don't remove the item soon after cooking. Yes, I can run to it and open the door and then go back to what I was doing until I actually have a break to take the food out, but it would be nice if it would let me know when the food is cooked and then be quiet about it. I'd be fine with losing the initial "It's ready" sound along with the reminder. The noise is like fingernails on a blackboard to me. Thanks!

You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.

HI. Your symptoms are a strong indication Magnetron failure. This is the principal heating device, that is used to produce microwaves that , essentially, excite the water molecules in the food, thus, producing the heating effect. When this device fails, generally, the unit will run, but not heat. This device is very fragile, and can injure you if you are not qualified to handle this type of component. There is a High Voltage Capacitor, that is used to help provide the necessary current for optimal Magnetron operation. This capacitor must be discharged correctly. If not, you could risk serious injury, during the repair, if it is accidental touched.

The Magnetron is linked to a cut-off fuse. If the magnetron becomes unstable, this fuse will shut the device down. It is standard procedure to have this fuse test for continuity. If the fuse has blown, this will be the culprit. Replace the fuse. Now, if the fuse continues to show continuity, this will confirm that the Magnetron has failed. I would advise to inspect the Capacitor, and HV diode for visible burn marks, or swollen top(Cap).

Access can be ac hived to these parts by removing the outside cabinet screws. Once the screws are removed, the cover can be removed, as well. Once the cover is removed, the internal components will be exposed for testing, and visual inspections.

WARNING:
IF YOU ARE NOT A QUALIFIED SERVICE TECH, THIS WILL NOT BE A NOVICE DO IT YOURSELF JOB. MICROWAVES ARE VERY DANGEROUS, AND CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. I RECOMMEND TO CALL FOR SERVICE, IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH HANDLING THE CAPACITOR, OR MAGNETRON.

GE JES1344SK01 microwave: turn off reminder beeps


I checked my GE micro information and nothing is said about disabling that annoying beep. Guess GE feels it is for your own good, like a noisome nanny.

Turn off beeping sound on touchpad oster countertop


If the owner's manual does not mention this as an option, the only other option would be to disable the piezo beeper.

Here's a video showing you one way:

Oster Model # OM1101NOE, As others have asked, is there a way to decrease the volume or disable the beep?


This may not be the best solution but I have had a really bad experience with the loudness of the Oster. My girls get up at 5 am to get ready for school and the constant beeping of the pad and the finish bell was soooo disturbing. So I took off the front panel with the number pad and took a screwdriver and poked a hole in the speaker......viola!! NO noise!!! works like a charm

KitchenAid kemc308kss0 Micro/Oven Combo Microwave: At the end of any cycle there is a four-tone beep that will continue to beep until KINGDOM COME until you either a. open the door b. press cancel. That is...


From page 7 of your owner's manual:

All Tones (combination oven models only)

All of the above tones are preset on, but can be turned off.
To Turn Off/On: Touch and hold STOP TIME for 5 seconds. A
tone will sound and “Snd oFF” will appear on the lower oven
display for 3 seconds. Repeat to change back to “Snd on.”

Tone Volume

The volume is preset at high, but can be changed to low.

To Change: Touch and hold the number pad “7” for 5 seconds. A
tone will sound and “Snd Lo” will appear on the lower oven
display for 3 seconds. Repeat to change back to “Snd HI.”

REMINDER TONES

The Timer and Timed Cooking reminder tones are preset on, but
can be turned off. Reminder tones do not include end-of-cycle
tones. On combination oven models, if “All Tones” have been
turned off, the reminder tones cannot be independently turned
on.

Timer

To Turn Tones Off/On: Touch and hold TIMER SET • START until
a tone sounds. Repeat to turn back on.

Timed Cooking (combination oven models only)

To Turn Tones Off/On: Touch and hold COOK TIME until a tone

No programming tone


On page 11 of the manual:

Disabling the timer reminder tones:

To disable the reminder tones, press and
hold the Timer Set pad for 5 seconds. To
enable the tones, follow the same step.

To shut off all (audible) signals except for error tones and the hidden function signal:

Press and hold the Stop Time pad for5 seconds. A short tone will sound to tell you the signals have been changed. Repeat the above step to turn the signals back on.

If that doesn't work, the next 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.
