Unplug unit from the outlet for at least 1 minute then plug it back in. This should reset the microwave and the time will need reset afterwards.

If that doesn't work do a search on how to reset your model of microwave.

I had that problem and it solved itself very easily. I unplugged the microwave and left it unplugged until it stopped beeping and all the residual power had been used up. I then replugged it in and no beeping! It has not beeped except when it should for almost a week. Apparently this resets the affected board, like rebooting your computer. Few people know about this. My repairman was astonished. It had never occurred to him to try that method.

Seems like the right answer, my issue is that this microwave is part of a cabinet unit. There’s no way for me to unplug it and I don’t know the model number.

Mine is part of a cabinet unit also. I opened the cabinet above it, took everything out and found the plug in the back against the wall and then unplugged it with mo problems.

We unplugged the GE microwave and it continued beeping for 24 hrs every minute. Drove us crazy as we can not understand why it beeps so long when power off. (No, no other devise is the beeper culpert).

We gave up and plugged it back in and tried pushing the clear button for several seconds. Beeping continued every minute. Unplugged it again for 1/2 hour and still beeping. Unplugged again and will leave it 24hrs again and if still beeping will tear off wall and install a new microwave, but it will not be a GE.

Anybody figure out how to stop this beeping other than removing the beeper part from the microwave??

Unplugged for 48 hours. Stopped beeping finally. Plugged back in. No beeping - for about 9 hours, then beeping began again. Unplugged now for about 36 hours. Still beeping. Will wait another 36???

@mayer It was a joke

This is no joke. I figured out how to stop the 'end-of-cycle' beeping. It's a menu option. This, however, did NOT stop the incessant single beep every 60 sec. As I mentioned, after uplugging for over 48 hours it finally stops. Other posters suggested unplugging and replugging to 'reset' the mother board. This also did NOT work. The unit cooks fine. There's a YouTube video on how to disconnect the speaker, also one on how to test the 'door open' alarm which, I suspect, this is.

Built in, same issue. Unplugging it worked after about 2 days of beeping. Several months later, same thing, this time it only took overnight to stop. Now after only about 3 weeks, once again. GE appliances kind of suck in my opinion. But the unit works otherwise. Looking into disconnecting the beeper and if that does not work, I can see us replacing this very soon. NO GE appliance however.

I am on day 2-1/2 and it’s still beeping… I might have to remove the beeping device. At least I haven’t moved in yet.
