Emerson microwave ovens are operated by pressing the buttons on the control pad. Each time a button is pressed, a beeping sound is made by the microwave. While some users prefer the audible acknowledgment that they pressed the button, other users find it annoying. In some situations, such as in a small office, the beeping can be distracting. Emerson designed some of their microwave models to allow users to turn off the beeping sound that is made when entering settings.
Press the "Sound" button on the microwave control panel. The "Sound" button is located under the "9" button. The display will read "On."
Push the sound button a second time to turn off the sound. The display will read "Off."
Save your setting by pressing the "Start" button on the microwave. The microwave will no longer make beeping noises when buttons are pressed.
Press the "Sound" button and the "Start" button to turn the sound on again.
