Annoying recurring sound

I?m having a problem similar to one I saw posted in the S3 forum that didn?t resolve my problem. I get a recurring sound similar to the one used on Fox News alerts, it fades in from the background and culminates in a resounding clanking sound. It happens quite frequently (at least once an hour) and does so without any accompanying notification message or icon. I?ve tried all of the following without success:

Disabled ALL application notifications
Used the Blocking Mode to turn off notifications
Turned off NFC
Deleted Yahoo Mail

The sound happens while sitting inactive, while listening to radio and while using applications. Curiously it hasn?t happened while talking on the phone or texting but I do little of both. It?s also louder than it should be for the volume setting and can be heard quite resoundingly even with the phone set at the lowest volume level. This is not only a nuisance but a problem as I like to keep my phone on overnight on the nightstand next to my bed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
