This unit is about 5 years old and had performed well. Recently, there have been occasional chirping buzzing noises coming from the front channels (currently set up in stereo only configuration. Seems to be no pattern to the occurence. It's infrequent and irregular.

Only the smoke detector will chirp. When they begin chirping it means the battery is very low and needs to be replaced. Replace it and you will find the chirping will stop as it will when the battery is totally dead.
you don't say what kind of smoke alarm you have, or what kind of chirping, so i'm assuming it's a once per minute chirp which usually indicates low battery, but can also indicate that the unit has some other problem...if the unit is more than 10 years old you should replace the entire thing (per NFPA72, the national fire code, all smoke ALARMS must be replaced every 10 years)...if this is newer than 10 years, try replacing the 9 volt battery being careful to follow any instructions that may have come with the unit or may be printed on the back, top or sides...good luck.
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
REPRIORITIZING A TRANSMITTER’S PROGRAMMING:
To reprogram a receiver channel with a different transmitter button once a code has been stored, there will be two options:
Enter the transmitter program mode of the receiver channel to be reprogrammed. Using any unused button or combination of buttons, push out the stored code by pressing the unused button until a long chirp is heard, then repeat 3 additional times. After this, you can add any desired unused transmitter button. This action erases only that particular receiver channel, all other codes will remain stored.
Enter the transmitter program mode. Using any transmitter button press and hold until a long chirp is heard. If a single chirp or multiple chirps, (up to 7 chirps), are heard, the unit is indicating that the transmitter has already been programmed elsewhere in the receiver. Release the transmitter button and within 5 seconds press and hold until a long chirp is heard. This action forces the unit to erase all stored codes of that transmitter.
The unit then exits the program mode the siren emits the program mode exit chirp pattern. All transmitter buttons for that transmitter must now be reprogrammed. Any other transmitter stored in the unit’s memory still remain operational. If the button is released and not pressed again within the 5 second period, no change in programming has been made to the receiver channel. The programmer can move onto a different channel or erase the transmitter codes as described in 1 above.

Why was there a need to increase the freezer temperature? Are you having temperature problems as well? If so, your ice maker has a built-in thermostat that, unless and until it is satisfied, will not cycle, thereby, making no ice. If temperature seems ok, and the buzzing is only occasional, then that buzzing is most likely the solenoid valve being energized but not passing water. This is a dual solenoid valve (one supplies the ice maker and the other supplies the dispenser) located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator.
I too had the same problem and called their customer service. They told me 1 chirp means a front receiver fault, 2 chirps means a rear receiver fault. They suggested I check the wiring and to switch the front receiver with the back receiver to see if the error code would "travel" with it to determine if the receiever was faulty. I did that and the problem went away. I assume I had a connection that loosened up.
