Summary: Unfortunately this microwave doesn't have a way to disable the beeper or turn down its volume like my old microwave did. That meant the piezo (beeper) had to go. It's pretty easy. Four torx pinhead screws and two phillips screws to remove the top/side cover. One phillips screw to remove the button panel. Four phillips screws to remove the circuit board on the button panel. The piezo (beeper) uses a through hole connection, which is why the circuit board must be remove.
Excerpt: I hate how it has a bell that rings until you get your food out after cooking . If I am on the phone or someone comes to the door it is obnoxious . Same when I am ill . It has no minute button and the quick keys are confusing and not step savors . For example coffee that could be a minute key takes pressing coffee , how many cups then start . Same with pizza it takes a while to learn and is not intuitive .
Pros: Attractive Design, Cooks Food Even, Does The Job, Easy To Clean, Easy To Install, Powerful, Simple Display
Cons: Bell Until You Get Food, Confusing Display, Noisy, Short Cord, Small Capacity, Too Many Inputs Needed
Summary: It works. It makes things warm, which I suppose is the key trait of a microwave. I'm not sure what other metrics to use to measure a microwave. The only reason this isn't 5 stars is that it often makes a terrible noise as though it is about to explode. I am not kidding either, we usually leave the room just to be safe.
