The compressor is normally pretty quiet, more of a deep hum so the noise is probably coming from either the fan that circulates air inside or the one that pusshes or pulls air through the evaporator coils under the cabinet. Probably has Chinese fan motors by now -

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator

The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

Is your water dispenser filter plugged? That would make the pump noisy.

Frigidaire FRS24ZRHW0 Icemaker/Water Dispenser problem

See if your water solenoid might be the problem. Your water supply line from the house will connect into a solenoid. I just recently solved a problem for someone on this site who had a solenoid that was sticking. Try tapping the solenoid gently to get it to activate or take it apart and depending on what type it is, manually move the spring loaded plunger a few times.

Hope this helps

Brand new pump that i bought it from store and i installed myself but it makes a distinctiv noise. emerson 230 v 1 hp.

is it the water going through the wet end or is the motor making the funny sound?
If the motor is sounding funny then you may have a bad motor. if the wet end is sounding really noisy then the motor may not be matching the size of the wet end as far as the HP. make sense? if your motor is bigger than the rating on the wet end it is pushing way too much water it is will be very noisy.

Water leaking from left side ice/water dispenser

If you describe a constant flow of water from the ice maker then the solenoid valve is either leaking by when it's upposed to be off or the motor module is stuck in the "fill" position. If it was stuck in fill you would be getting a LOT of water all the time so if you only have a trickle then the solenoid valve may be letting water leak by it. The diagram here shows the parts for a better idea of what you may need to look at (and where it's at).
