My guess would be that the left and right margins are set at the same place. Try resetting the right margin and see if that's the problem. I used to experience this a lot with kids playing with the typewriter.
Move the carrier to the desired position for the new left or right margin using "backspace" or "space"
To move beyond the position of a current margin, first position the carrier on the margin and press "alt +m rel"
When the carrier is on the desired position, press "alt + l mar" (if you are setting the left margin), or "alt + r mar" (if you are setting the right margin.)
The minimim distance between the left and right margins is two inches
Do you see the lmar and rmar above the number keys printed on the cover? Move the carriage to where you want to set the left margin Then hold down the ALT key and depress the corresponding number key under the lmar symbol. Repeat for the right margin.
First find the margin release key and press it once. Then use the spacebar to move the carrier forward and reset the right margin. Or again use the margin release key by pressing it once and then press and hold the backspace key to move through where the left margin was and reset it at the point where you want it.
Move the carrier to the place you want to set the left margin by using (SPACEBAR) or (BACKSPACE). If you need to move outside the current left margin, press (ALT) + (M REL) (3). Press (ALT) + (L MAR) (4). The left margin is now set.

Your description is somewhat vague. Possibly you are getting the 'alarm' sound as you type. If this is the case the typewriter could have the spellcheck function turned on. Or possibly your right and left margin are set too close to each other causing the alarm to sound.
when the typewriter is first switched on the typewriter will automatically set a margin 10 or 12 spaces in,depending on which pitch setting you have. To set a margin say on 20,space-bar in to 20 on the spacing scale and then press Margin Set Key. to set a margin on say, 5 first depress the Margin release key and back-space 5 spaces in and then set then margin as before. Remember that the typewriter will "forget" the settings as soon as it is switched off.
