    There are many different noises a refrigerator can make, some are normal (boiling sounds, hissing / sizzling / gurgling, whooshing, etc) and compressor humming noise. You could please describe the noise as much as possible ? Has it done so since the beginning of your purchase ? Is your icemaker functional ?

The weird noise will be something mechanical.

It will be either -
The Compressor (black "motor" at the rear)
The Control solenoid - Small electrical block with several pipes going through it
The frost-free fan - back of Freezer unit.

If it is the fan, it can be an easy fix if it is knocking something - just remove cover panel.

If it is the solenoid, it may require a rectifer component to prevent buzzing.

If it is the compressor, turn off unit, give it a reasonable knock to wobble it, waitm then re-connect. Sometimes the internal assembly sits in the wrong position.
If it is the compressor that is buzzing, it needs a new run capacitor fitting. If you are competent at soldering, it is possible to identify and replace this part yourself.

Grinder make a weird sound


Describe the weird sound. If it is very loud clacking like a machine gun type noise then vacuum our the hopper over the grinder and inspect for a stone jammed in there. The stones always look brown like a coffee bean, it is very common.

On of two things, either your brakes are bad and need to be replaced, you should also have your rotors checked to make sure that they are not warped. Or your wheel bearings are bad and need to be replaced
