why does the microwave beep every 30 secs many times, to let you it is done
the oven beeps once

  • I see whatcha mean, but I also think it depends on the brand. My microwave only beeps when it's done. It doesn't keep beeping. Either does my oven timer.

  • I want to know why my dryer buzzes a warning before it's finished, then 3 minutes later buzzes again and stops. Does it think I need to rush upstairs to be there for that final buzz? I would rather my washer buzz to let me know its done, because that's something I actually need to know.

  • Mine beeps at about 15 second intervals when something is done cooking to remind me to get the food out. I hate the microwave. Same thing with the ovens. The timer does the same thing but the pitch isn't quite as annoying as the micro.
