    The refrigerator and freezer seem to be keeping the foods at the right temperatures (freezer foods are frozen and refrigerator foods are cold (and not perishing). The motor runs frequently and almost sounds like its grinding and struggling.

My refrid keeps tripping the gfi breaker . I have replaced the gfi but problem continues. Is this most probably a refrigerator problem or a house wiring problem ?

It depends on the GFI size. The refrigerator draws 9.9 amps. If you have a GFI that is too close to this, it will pop. Don't over rate the receptacle unless you have the wiring to match. You could always put in a regular receptacle.

Humming sound? motor or fan constantly running

Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor you are hearing. The motor is the only thing that shuts off when the door is open. The fan motor is located behond the rear panel inside the freezer sections.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Noise at the top, constant

Are you saying you get the noise even when the refrigerator is not cooling? If you get the noise only when the refrigerator "runs", it is the fan as you suggest.
