I need to replace the front left leveling wheel ( which I think I know how to remove).
How do you remove the rear moving wheel.It appears that the axle is constructed into a permanent frame. The roller split in two and has fallen off.

Most refrigerators will have a leveling leg or wheel at each ot the front corners. What I usually do is lift the refrigerator up and set a block under the refrigerator and turn the legs or the screw for the wheels until they are at the point I want them and then remove the block. In your case, if you have leveling legs you will want to screw them into the refrigerator to lower the front. If you have wheels you will need a screwdriver or a nut driver and un-screw the bolt to lower the front. You may need to take the trim under the door off to access the bolts if you have wheels in the front. Hope this helps!
The ref is not usually at fault your floor is uneven.
Shim either the left or right rear wheel 1/4' at a time.
This will take the twist out of the box and Lvl. the doors.
Use hard board avail at Home depot.
2x4' sheet and have them cut it into 3 8" strips
then have hem cut one into 4 12' rectangles.
Use the long pices to roll your ref. out onto so you protect your floor.
Use the small ones to shim the rear wheel.
Remove anything in the unit that could spill or tip over. Raise the front leveling legs to allow unit to roll. Slide the unit out from the wall. Place something between the refrigerator and the wall to protect surfaces. ***Make sure you have someone to assist with this next part. Tilt unit to the side and lean it against the wall to raise up the roller to be replaced. There is a metal base that supports the rollers, compressor, condenser and fan motor. You will see a heavy duty metal pin that goes through the roller. Bend down the metal tab in the base to remove roller pin. Replace the roller, reinstall bin and bend the tab back up. Carefully set the refrigerator back down on all four rollers. push back in place and screw down the front leveling legs.
First to adjust the leveler/wheels you will need to remove the front grill/toe plate. On the left and right sides you should see some bolt heads that are about 1/2" hex head. One on the left adjust the rear leveler/wheel and the other on the left adjust the front leveler/wheel. Turn the hexhead clockwise to raise cabinet higher counterclockwise to lower cabinet. The right side is the same.
Now to your noise, it sounds like you may have pushed the cardboard air dam under the condenser and condenser fan motor near the compressor up into the fan blade area. Carefully follow the source of the sound and you will find what is out of its proper position.
I hope I helped, supertechks
