This is Michelle with GE and I am happy to answer your question.
The Cooking Complete Reminder feature, on this microwave model # JES1656SRSS, reminds you that your cooking cycle has finished. The "cooking complete reminder" is a beep that occurs once every minute after the normal cooking cycle has ended.
The cooking complete reminder:
~ Begins one minute after the 'cooking complete signal'.
~ Is different from the 'cooking complete signal' which consists of four beeps heard only once directly at the end of the cooking cycle.
~ Is an audible aid when recipes call for standing time after cooking. There is no need to set the kitchen timer. Just keep track of the beeps (example: 5 beeps = 5 minutes).
~ In order to terminate "cooking complete reminder", touch clear/off or open the door.
Thank you for your interest in this GE microwave. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
