New microwave, and I don't like the beeping. An article I found says "all microwaves can have the beep turned off", but I can't find a process for this microwave. I called their customer support who said it's not possible, so it's probably not possible.

 

Anyone managed to turn the beep off?

Nah, warranty void, and pretty bad idea with a device like this.

It is possible that it is in some diagnostic menu,although panasonic ones are very basic. Maybe someone who repairs them knows. The last panasonic one I purchased, the light didn't turn on when I opened the door like my previous panasonic one, which is really annoying. They said that was a 'feature' of that model. I would have loved to have known how to enable it in the menus, as the light does turn on when it is cooking. But maybe they aren't advanced enough for that sort of control in the menus

Put some blu-tac over its little speaker. It should at least reduce the volume to a less annoying level. I did the same thing back in the day with my dial up modem.

Im sure you did, but it did mention to start the sequence after plugging in i.e. if already on, then unplug, wait and plug in and start the sequences.

That sounds practical, if I can find it :)
