If people are awake and using the microwave, we don't really
have to worry about those things, do we, since the people
can wake the ear-plugged sleepers.
But if the people that are awake now were part of the earplug crew during
the night, you'd still have to worry.
I think it is silly to wear earplugs maybe 60 hours a week for years to
avoid a problem that can be solved easily and permanently one time.
Kenmore is an over-the-range model (also described as a "microhood"),
and I'm pretty sure the GE Spacemaker ones are too.
Walk into an appliance store and ask about the beeper and/or look at the
user's guide, which may be in the oven, or you may have to ask for it.

Looking at it from another perspective: is there any reason the
light sleepers can't wear ear plugs?
The soft, foam plugs are very cheap and not uncomfortable.

Nonetheless, if Maureen has an answer as simple as the one she gave, she
should tell us what brand of microwave works this way, and about how old
it is, and hopefully the model name or number (since not all items even
from with the same brandr have the same features, some aren't even made
by the same actual maker.
Then we'll all know, and someone searching the archives later will know
P&M but please answer by post so all will see it.
PS, I myself would like to make the buzzer louder. It's loud enough
when a radio or tv isn't on, but not at all when one is. When I have
time, I'll "do the surgery", but it's low on my list.
