I am not posotive, but it sounds like you may have a piece of debris stuck in the fan underneath. You can check if you pull it out from the wall, make sure you unplug it as to not have the fan come on while you are toying. But thats what it sounds like. If that is not it, I am sure you could locate the noise with it pulled out from the wall, and go from there, Possibly your compressor, but sounds like the fan the way you're explaining it. Good luck

Fan in top of the refrigerator is making a high pitched whine when running


The high pitched noise is likely a bearing on the fan motor going out. You should replace the motor soon as it may fail completely.

What is wrong when refrigerator makes a high whine periodicly?


HI,

The compressor moves the coolant through the unit, and the fan moves the air. Both have spinning motors that need lubricant to remain in good working order. When these items begin to fail, if they don't shut down completely, you will hear metal rubbing against metal, the high pitched noise. Normally these are sealed with plenty of lubricant and need no routine maintenance.

The bad news is there is not much you can do on your own. One fix that rarely works, but is worth a try because it is free, is to alter the balance of the appliance. Sometimes just raising the front or the back or the side shifts the weight in the offending motor off of the metal rubbing parts. Some appliances have adjustable "feet" that you can twist in or out for this purpose. Please don't tip the appliance so far that it is unstable. If this makes the whine go away, remember that this is only a temporary solution. It might last long enough for a repairman to replace the part, or it might last long enough to save up for a new appliance, but the whine will return.

My freezer is making this high pitch noise, its an industrial Beaufort freezer on wheels


Zaria:
I have the same kind of fridge and it also makes this kind of noises, however, they are on the acceptable level. They sound more like a seal being happy with the new food. It is not all the time but sometimes. I think it is the contraction and expansion of the pipes that cause the noise and is not a sign of any problem. Of course all depends on the level of the noise you have...
Hope it helps. Greg.
