You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.

SOURCE: Evaporator Motor & Fan
you can try to completely defrost the fridge by unplugging it for a day and put you groceries in another fridge, sometime ice dams build up in those and freeze next to the fan blades and cause alot of noise, if its squealing, then its the motor for sure, evaporator motors are usually pretty easy to replace once you study where its at, usually the whole top or bottom and back of freezer has to come out then the motor and fan are right there, keep the fan blade assembly because you put that on the new motor, be extremely careful once you have the bottom and sides out because the coils will be vulnerable to anything if you hit them go to www.sears.com and go to parts area, theres a sears repair store in our town , hopefully in yours or just call around, dont forget to unplug it! hope that helps

pull fridge out and listen if noise is comming from compressor or not. If not, then your evaporator fan is comming into contact with the ice from the evap.coil. Basically give unit a good overnight defrost with doors open as the insulation on this fridge is good

I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.
