Check the feet are level by adjusting them until the buzzing/vibration stops ie make sure there is no slack between the feet and the floor.

take the cover off the fan in the freezer section and see if the fan blade is loose or hitting ice the blade just pushes on make sure the mountings are tight its probably the blade but you might need to replace the motor if i reamber correctly on the cover there is a screw at the bottom you remove then slide the cover up and its on hooks plastic hooks built on the cover ok

Sounds as if the compressor may have given out. You probably need to hire a professional to repair this unit. It is possible that the start relay is broken but without a model number I can't tell if you have a packaged start relay or if it is an easily obtainable standard overload and start relay kit.

There are 2 areas it could be in....The upper area where the evaporator fan is....or the lower area where the condenser fan is..
If it is in the freezer...when you open the door there should be a button that the door connects with that you can hold in manually to make the fan engage..and listen for the noise..the odds are if it were ice build up....your thumping the fridge would not make it stop ..since the thumping would not remove the Ice...it would continue to build up and the fan would eventually stop completely and everything would warm up. It could be a loose stap that holds evaporator lines in place or a motor mount that is loose ..
Or it could have to do with the condenser fan..where the compressor is.The compressor and condenser coil are located underneath the freezer section of your refrigerator. There is some tubing connecting the compressor to the condenser coil. There is also a condenser fan to cool the condenser. To access these parts the refrigerator has to be pulled away from the wall. If you pull the refrigerator out go slowly and watch the tubing that connects from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water cut off at the wall.
Remove the power from the refrigerator. Remove the lower panel on the rear of the refrigerator. Look inside for anything loose. Locate the condenser fan motor and blade. These are the areas to stay away from when power is applied. Plug the refrigerator back in being careful to avoid the condenser fan motor and blade. Wear gloves to prevent burning yourself on the hot refrigerant lines and try touching tubing and lightly pushing and pulling to see if you can cause or stop the noise.
Generally a rattle or hum is caused by a refrigerant line touching part of the cabinet or base pan. If it is not repaired it may rub a hole in the refrigerant line causing the refrigerant to leak out. If you don't feel comfortable trying to correct it, you should schedule service and let a technician repair the refrigerator.
I hope this helps...please rate me ...thanks The Fang
