If it is cooing fine, then the noise is probably your evaporator fan (the one inside your freezer). This can be cause by one of several things. The motor on this fan may be going bad, or, more likely, you may have a build up of ice around the blades that are touching the fan. This may be caused by a defrost circuit that has gone bad, or, the freezer may have been open alot lately and there is an excess of frost that hasn't melted away yet. If you can, manually defrost the freezer and see if it goes away. If it doesn't, it's probably the fan motor. If it does, and then comes back, it's probably the defrost circuit. Hope this helps!

The motor and pump inside the housing are mounted on 4 springs to cut down on vibration.
One or more of the springs has broken, allowing the internal unit to flop around, hitting the sides of the case.
There is no repair possible except replacing the compressor.
Oddly, the compressor may run a long time in that condition, but it will ultimately fail.
