Haas Control Alarm Volume
This is one of those annoying little things that I can't figure out.
Our Haas mill was off for about a week, and when we powered up, the alarm "beep" is suddenly much louder - painfully so. I wouldn't mind if it only beeped on alarms, but it's every time you press a key. Paging through settings sort of hurts my ears.
I'm not trying to be a wimp, but is there a volume setting? I can't seem to find anything in settings or parameters.
On our Minimill, theres a round dial right underneath the control that can be turned. It's not a volume knob, I think it actually opens or closes the hole where the sound comes out.
Reach inside that "glove box" area and feel around.
Like Volitan said, the buzzer on the bottom of the control is exposed. It has a rotating cover, which controls the volume.
Likely that someone has bumped and turned it to allow higher volume.
Simple turn it back to where you want it.
Alternative is duct tape, which makes for a really sweet silencer in this application.
Ok, I'm feeling dumb now, but thanks for the solution.
Don't feel dumb. We had an operator here who found it and used to mess with it all the time to amuse himself I guess. I actually didn't know how the volume was changing until he showed me.
