the problem you are having is in the main control board. ge has had a problem with this part causing the fan motor to go into high and low speed which causes the howling noise. unfortunately it is a costly fix, around $125 for the part. if you are savy to changing this part it is a matter of unplgging about 5 connections and replugging them. the new board has an extra set of pin that nothing connects to. READ the instuctions and it is a simple fix, saving about $50-60 in labor costs.

SOURCE: freezer making a loud noise.
Sounds as if the evaporator fan has shaft play or the blades are out of balance or striking something. When you open the door the pressure is equal but with the door closed the fan needs to push the air through the evaporator and return again and circle through fan again. I think soon would be a good time to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel covering the evaporator and fan motor to inspect the fan, shaft play and the evaporator for frost buildup or any obstruction of air flow.

ok first i want you to pull your Refrigerator and look for a part of a loaf of bread or something else that has got inyour fan. hope this helps. if you don't find anything you may have a bad bearing on one of your fans. there are to fans one under the rear, and one inside the Refrigerator that you here when the door opens and closes pay close attn: to both!
good luck sawdust46

first you have to remove all shelves in the freezer,then remove all screws in the interior rear panel. In some cases you'll have to remove a couple of shelf tabe located on the side wall. Once tha panel is removed,the fan will be in plain sight. The blade is usually aboue 4-5 inches in diameter and is attached to a small motor with 2 wires and a green grounding wire. Note: you might want to check why it's making noise. Is there ice built up around the blades?Are you getting too much moisture entering the box thru faulty door gaskets?

Testimonial: "It was very good advise."
Sounds like your compressor is not starting due to a faulty "starter PTC" a.k.a. start relay. Or a faulty compressor. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start. When it's windings overheat, an internal cut-off switch "clicks" off until it cool down.
Then the cycle repeats.
