You have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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

How can I turn off the beeper on my microwave?


On some models, yes. Simply refer to your owner's manual to see if that feature is available on your model.

Otherwise, see this YouTube video.

Beeper wont shut off


Remove the power plug and Allow the voltage present on the board to drain OFF. After an hour please recheck and if the beep still stays there is fault in the motherboard. Possible that the beeper driver is short and is continuous. If all the other functions are working without any issues, all you can do is to cut off the beeper connection if you are able to remove the board and snip off . Attempt with power plug removed .

How do i shut beep completely off EM720CWA-PM


How do i shut beep completely off EM720CWA-PM ?

I had a similar issue with this beeper it goes off like an air raid siren.
I removed the 5 top cover screws (2 of these screws require a special star tipped screwdriver. I unscrewed them with a small vice grips -not easy but it can work), With the 5 screws removed carefully pull and slightly lift the cover back toward the rear of the microwave, it's stubborn but will come off with several persistent tugs.

the speaker is now accessible, it's on the circuit board just behind the control panel. You will see a 3/4 "x 3/4" black plastic shroud shaped like an arch protrouding from the circuit board, which houses the speaker. the speaker is visible within the housing and appears as a small metal disc about the size of a quarter. There are two wires soldered to the surface of the disc, reach in with a pocketknife (I used an x-acto knife) and sever/cut one of the wires. remember to pull the wire back so it can no longer make contact with the speaker. reassemble and you will have a "beeperless" microwave, it works fine without the speaker.

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!

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:
