Do you mean stop it alarming when the door is left open for more than 1 minute?

This model doesnt have a way to disable the alarm as its a hard wired feature, you can only silence the alarm each time it starts by pressing the Settings\Mode button each time it starts.

I trust this clarified the nature of your question, please confirm I can close the question or if you need anything further.

Tried that but it doesn't work. Really want to disable it. Have to tape the door open switch down to allow us to load the shopping. Thanks anyway.
