The process in itself is gradual and you have to wait for almost an hour sometimes to sous vide a piece of meat. It might prove to be too technical for some beginners and they would have difficulty in understanding how to use the sous vide machine.
Furthermore, You always run the risk of water leaking into the plastic pouch making your meat rubbery.

Following this method solved the issue for most people.
2) Give your machine a short break
Sometimes if you are using the machine too frequently and not giving it appropriate time in between uses then it might malfunction. People mentioned that to fix the beeping issue just unplug your machine for 24 hours and try using it the next day.
3) Add more water
Most people are not aware that there is a minimum water level that should be maintained while using a sous vide machine. If your container has less water than that minimum level you will start hearing that constant beeping noise. So, make sure you are adding appropriate water to the container as mentioned in the manual.
4) Reset temperature
If all of the above-mentioned fixes don’t work for you then you should try to reset the temperature on the machine. Unplug the machine, reset temps to default, and then re-plug after a few minutes. If the machine starts working then you can go ahead and set the temperature back to your desired level.
