I believe that,
From here this sounds like one of many normal sounds. is a normal sound.

You can go to this site and scroll to page 9 where it will tell you all the normal sounds your fridge can make.
I tried to cut and past it here for you, but it is not copyable from the site!

Side by side refrigerator will not cool on refrigerator side plus a build of ice temp control, model # psb2151grw


It sounds like your freezers' evaporator coils are not defrosting normally.At least once a day ,a refrigerator automatically defrosts the coils in the rear of the freezer compartment.In most cases ,the electric heater that is activated by a timer circuit,comes on and melts any ice buildup .If that heater doesn't come on for several days,the ice builds up into a solid block,and it doesnt allow any air to pass thru to the refrigerator side of you box.

Fan in freezer is making a real bad sound...... griding like it may be struggling to to stay running


This can be caused by frost accumulation on or aroundthe freezer fan Icing . And due to this no cooling will be in fridge compartment.
Unplug power and . defrost it. And after some times, switch on fridge.
This is due to auto defrost switch malfunction. keep temp setting at 5 degree and check auto defrost (if your fridge having that option) is working. If not you have to replace PCB. Thanks.

My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

Compartments are not real cold/ ice maker stopped working too


It sounds like your refrigerant was leaking out. There may be some settled at the bottom that would explain the frozen water on the bottom. a good appliance store should be able to find the leak fix it and add more refrigerant.

It was determined to be a malfunctioning defrost timer. The freezer box bottom was removed (not an easy thing to do) and the coils found to be a solid block of ice. The timer would not start the defrost heater, hence the freeze up. The timer was replaced and the chill box is back in action.
