Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

Most are not able to be disabled.

The door alarm is not able to be shut off on that model. Is it keeping temperature okay and do the lights work when you open and close the doors?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Everything works, I just think the alarm is unbelievably annoying when you're cooking or trying to clean out the fridge. I'm pretty handy, if the method to do it is tricky, I should be able to follow along. I have a hard time believing there's no way to disable it. I'm sure there probably is.

Well maybe another has some magic for you, I will place your question back to the list. Good luck.
