Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.

Do you have the complete model number off the unit?

Z1SB420DMD - sounds like it's coming from below or behind?

What is on the temp display and is anything flashing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I gave the complete model # ***** the unit
1F - freezer 36F - refrigerator
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

There is nothing down below behind the unit and the only thing that could be beeping on the unit would be the main board above by the compressor. Are you certain the noise is coming from the unit? If there was an alarm there would be something showing on the display. If it were another alarm it would beep all the time.

it's beeping every 3 minutes? could it be the replacement of the water filter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
3 times every 1 minute
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

It may be the door alarm can you check and make sure the lights go off when closing both doors?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the light does go out and it is a built in fridge and the beeps are sounding from underneath
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

There is nothing under that unit that can beep, the boards are above and the dispenser board is in the front maybe it's a toy? or something else completely?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok thanks for your help! no toys in this house....
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

It may be something else completely if you think it is coming from underneath. No errors on the display and the beeping really do indicate to me that it is not coming from the unit.
