The Ninja Cooker makes some noises that you’re probably not happy with. Luckily, these are very simple fixes to restore the noise machine back to working condition.
If you’ve ever had a Ninja Cooker and experienced this issue, then let me explain how to fix it for you! Here’s what happened: One day your noise machine was fabulous, but all of a sudden it started making those weird beeping noises that make your stomach turn. You didn’t know what to do. And then you started Googling it, only to find that it’s beeping because it’s overheating. The question is why? If you’re reading this, then let me tell you that I feel your pain. This has happened to us a few times before, and we’ve learned some very useful tricks to figure out exactly why the beeping is happening so we can get the machine back cooking like normal.
1: Avoid using frozen food for deep frying or air frying in the Ninja Cooker.
Or in other words, the Ninja Cooker is not compatible with deep frying or air frying frozen food. Frozen foods will cool your cookers heating elements down too much, and this can cause the machine to malfunction and make some weird noises. It’s okay to air fry if you thaw the product out beforehand, but deep frying should be avoided all together.
2: Don’t use oil with a low smoke point.
If you have a low-smoke point type of oil such as canola or vegetable oil in your Ninja Cooker at too high of heat, it will make your noise machine pop and crackle because the oil is overheated. It will also make your food taste burnt and gross.
3: Clean the heating elements with a paper towel.
We do this at least every other time to keep the machine in tip-top shape. The walls of the cooking bowl and especially the heating element need to be cleaned each time you are done using it, as they will have residue built up over time. The residue will eventually cause your machine to overheat because it’s clogging up all of its parts. A paper towel works perfectly for wiping down the inside of your cooking bowl and clean off any particles on the heating element and fan.
4: Don’t set the timer for too long.
Sometimes on the Ninja Cooker there is a timer function that can be set by the user. If you leave your machine to cook with this timer at a high temperature, it can make a weird noise or cause your machine to overheat. If you want to use the timer feature, turn it down and/or avoid using it for longer than 45 minutes in order to prevent overheating.
5: Avoid opening the lid beforehand.
This will also make your machine overheat. The Ninja Cooker is programmed to heat up really fast and cook food, but if you don’t keep the lid down then it’s not going to be able to do its cooking properly, and instead will just cause it to overheat. Again, if you want to use this feature, just lower the temperature setting on your cooker and/or avoid opening the lid until after cooking is complete.
6: Avoid overcooking food in your Ninja Cooker.
The Ninja Cooker works best with fresh foods that aren’t overcooked. If you want to use the Ninja Cooker to cook something that needs to cook on high heat for a long time, it’s best to cut your recipe in half. Of course, if you’re going for a full-sized recipe then be sure to do what you need to do in order for it not to overheat!
7: Stop using your Ninja Cooker.
Okay. This is the solution that we came up with. After understanding exactly why our machine was overheating, we came up with this solution: stop using the machine altogether! After several months of use, our Ninja Cooker was getting a bit worn down and needed replacing anyway because the heating elements didn’t seem as powerful as before.
The Ninja Air Fryer’s beeping noise can be a little annoying. It seems to go off at random times and it is almost impossible to find the noise maker. So, if you’re like me and this is happening, here are a few possible solutions I’ve found for your problem. Hopefully one of these will help you out!
Luckily for me, I had just opened the oven door when it happened last time! All I needed was a magnet or something metal about 8″ long to pull the air fryer out from underneath the stove top – taking care not to touch any of the hot parts.
It was beeping underneath the stove top. Using my magnet tool, I reached under the stove top to pull it out and found that it was not in the right position to start a new cycle. The Ninja Air Fryer has something called “Cycle Start Sensor” that needs to make contact with one of it’s sensors in order to start a new cooking cycle.
I’ve noticed that my air fryer has started beeping for no reason when I open the oven door. I put something metal on the sensor and the beeping stopped. I probably had some oil on my hands and when I opened the door, that transferred onto the sensor and triggered a beep…
To fix your air fryer’s beeping problem or if it starts beeping at random times, try these fixes one by one:
1. Make Sure You Have Cleaned Your Air Fryer Properly
Yes, this is a top reason why your Ninja Air Fryer might suddenly turn into an annoying alarm clock. It’s so important to make sure that you have cleaned your air fryer properly . If you cook with grease, oil and other oily residue that can accumulate in a mesh filter, then your air fryer will beep at you.
The best way to clean it is with warm soapy water . I always go through the entire cycle to ensure that everything has been cleaned. The mesh filter of my Ninja Air Fryer will come out and then I just wash it with warm soapy water. It comes out without any residue or anything on it, and I can put back into the oven and make sure that everything is nice and clean.
2. Do a Manual Reset
I found that I have to also do a reset after cleaning the air fryer. It’s kind of weird, but it will stop beeping and everything is OK again. It’s probably a glitch in the program but this has worked for me!
1) Make sure your air fryer is unplugged and cool before doing a reset. Place your finger on the “CONTROL” knob (located on the back of your air fryer) and turn clockwise for 5 seconds–and then stop.
The control knob will rotate in an anti-clockwise direction (counter-clockwise).
Now, unplug your air fryer, remove the mesh filter and place it on the counter top.
2) Take a piece of paper and use it to rub the inside plastic container that sits on top of the control knob.
3) Now, take a cotton swab and rub around the plastic container where you rubbed previously with your paper.
4) The cotton swab should become stained red where you rubbed it with your previously used piece of paper. This will confirm any residue that may have been left on the plastic container.
5) Clean out cotton swab and then place back into container so it can be used again to check for residue after the next cooking session.
6) Run a normal cooking cycle (highest temperature setting) to burn off any residue left over inside your air fryer.
Now, put back mesh filter and you should have no more problems with your Ninja Air Fryer!
Check Your Wire Connections If you find that none of the above methods help you or if you are still having problems with your air fryer, then there is a chance that something is wrong with your wire connections.
The wires that come out of the control knob on the Ninja Air Fryer are very thin and can be easily broken if they get too much strain. This will cause your air fryer to stop working properly, so it’s important to check them regularly. Make sure that you haven’t got any loose connections by checking the ends of your wires where you have spliced them together with a small flat head screw driver at their joint.
It is also fairly easy to break these wires if you are trying to too forcefully disconnect them from the on/off power switch which is located inside your Ninja Air Fryer. The wire running from this switch should be about half an inch long when it is connected and there should be no excess length hanging off the end.
Can you turn off the sound on a ninja Foodi?
Yes. You can turn off the sound on a ninja Foodi by lowering the volume in your music/radio app. When you are done, raise the volume to normal. Or you can lower it as low as you want and it will not bother anyone else in your house! You’ll have to do this for each device that has a built-in speaker.
Ninja Smoothie Maker Beeping Noise
If you are making your smoothies with the Ninja Smoothie Maker and you hear this beeping noise, then there is something stuck inside the Ninja Smoothie Maker and it needs to be cleaned out. You need to make sure that you clean out the fruit pulp and any other particles are caught in the blades or in the walls of the Ninja Smoothie Maker.
You can use a bottle brush to scrub out all of these particles. Mine usually happens when I use frozen strawberries, so if you have any fresh fruit pieces in your smoothies…those will cause problems as well. But, mainly frozen fruit causes this problem with my Ninja Smoothie Maker.
How do I turn off the air fryer sound?
You can turn off the air fryer sound on any of your air fryers by going to the options menu and lowering the volume of the beeps. This will turn off your Ninja Air Fryer beep – but only when you are in the main display area on your screen where it is too difficult to open up the lid of your Ninja Air Fryer.
If you go into a cooking session, or if you are making food in one of your Ninja Air Fryers and you need to open up the lid, then you can turn off the ninja Foodi beep until then.
The same goes for when you want to flip a burger or fried chicken. You can lower the volume on the beeps in the option menu. Note that this will only decrease the volume of a beep once it is occurring – it does not turn off your air fryer altogether.
How do I stop my Ninja Air Fryer from beeping?
There are a few things you can do to stop your Ninja Air Fryer from beeping:
If your air fryer makes a weird noise while cooking…or just starts giving you an error message, then you might have some crumbs or other particles stuck or caught inside your air fryer. Make sure you clean it out with a bottle brush and don’t let any bits of food drop onto the element.
You can also try to lower the volume of your beeps on your Ninja Air Fryer by going into your settings menu. This is usually found under “options” or something like that.
If this doesn’t work, then something is stuck inside your air fryer and you need to clean out all of the particles from the blades or from some other part of the air fryer.
Can I turn off the beep on my air fryer?
No. There is a “beep” sound on the Ninja Air Fryers. This is a safety feature that will let you know that your food is getting to the right temperature and there are nothing blocking the air flow. But, you don’t need to hear this beeping – so if it prevents you from using your air fryer, there are some ways to turn off this beeping sound by going into your options menu:
1) Click on “SETTINGS” on the bottom-right of your screen
2) Click on “OPTIONS” tab
3) On this page, click on “VOLUME CONTROL”
4) This will scroll down to where it says “Beep”. Use the arrows on the left of this page to increase or decrease volume. Click on “SAVE” and then you will have turned off your beeping sound!
I hate the beeping noise! Can I turn it off?
No. Just like a smoke alarm, the Ninja Air Fryer makes a beeping noise when it is done cooking so that you don’t burn yourself. It’s best not to try and silence it as you may burn yourself if you forget about your food in your air fryer.
Why does my Ninja Air Fryer keep beeping?
There are a few reasons why you might hear a beep from your Ninja Air Fryer:
The air fryer is cooking and the timer is automatically activated…in which case there’s nothing you can do about it at that point. The beep will only remain on for about thirty seconds after your food has cooked.
The air fryer has an error message and you will need to take it apart to see what’s wrong. You’ll want to check that all of the air flow tubes are connected properly and they are coming out of the Ninja Air Fryer and not sticking together in some way – this can cause a lot of problems, as can catching any food bits inside the Ninja Air Fryer.
Why is my air fryer so loud?
You may notice that the sound level is higher (louder) on your Ninja Air Fryers. This is because they are high-spec models with a finer mesh. Because of this, the air flow is stronger and the beep is louder. The beep will remain on for about 30 seconds after cooking on one of Ninja’s cookers and then it will turn off (but you will still hear an air sound coming out of the air fryer).
