Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

If the power is unplugged, that is the cause of the beeping, because it means the battery is also getting low.

You need to find the control box, which will be a metal panel, similar to a fusebox (but usually tan) and open it up. Inside you'll see a battery about the size of a brick. Disconnect the red and black connectors from the prongs on top, and leave the power cord unplugged. That should stop the beeping within a few minutes.

Best regards,
