Beeping is a normal function in your Samsung microwave. Although it gives you important reminders, such as when your microwave is done cooking or when you still have food inside, the beeping noises can get too loud at times.
Depending on your Samsung microwave, you might be able to mute it. With a few taps of a button, you can silence the loud beeps for good.
We’ll show you how to activate the mute function on different Samsung models. Just look for your microwave below to find out how to stop the beeps.
Why does my Samsung microwave beep?
Your Samsung microwave beeps when it’s done cooking or when food is still inside. It may also beep when you place a timer or when the door isn’t closed all the way.
In some cases, a microwave continuously beeps to alert you of errors that may cause your unit to malfunction.
How to Silence a Samsung Microwave
To silence a Samsung microwave’s loud beeping, power cycle it first. Plug it back in after 60 seconds.
Microwave a cup of water for a few seconds. Click Stop/Clear once you hear the chime.
Press the Sound ON/OFF button until your display says OFF. Then, confirm the change by pressing the START button.
Other Samsung microwaves don’t have a Sound ON/OFF button. Instead, you’ll have to press a different button combination to mute your unit.
Unfortunately, not all Samsung microwaves have a mute function. If you own any of the following models, you most likely can’t silence your microwave’s loud beeping noises.

If none of these button combinations work, check your user manual. You can confirm if your Samsung microwave model has a mute function and find out how to turn it on.
