I strongly advise that you don't mess with your microwave oven like this. You'll just have to suffer it.
You might be able to muffle the sound a little if you can find the buzzer location but be sure not to prevent airflow from any vents.
The best place to ask this question would be on /r/diyelectronics, /r/askelectronics or /r/ElectronicsRepair.
You can find the buzzer and replace it with something softer sounding but it would require you to be careful because if you put it back badly, you or others around you would be injured.
Good point. Thank you
Some microwaves have silent modes. Look for that or buy one that has that as a feature. New microwave is cheaper than a hospital bill or burning your house down.
Make/model of each please.
you could tape a piece of foam over the buzzer the muffle/mute it -- or forego the foam and just put tape over it
but I agree with Andy above -- if you're not confident on your own, best not to modify any appliances :)
Why are people even responding to this… I get being helpful, sure politely direct to a proper sub. But if this person even took a min to read through previous post / have a 10 second wiki understanding they would not be asking on this sub.
Buy a new microwave.
