There is a fan at the back which could be hitting something. You would hear the noise nearly continuously. There is a compressor motor at the back. If you hear the noise just when the compressor starts and stops That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
You may have a motherboard on the back which can make noise. You'll need to roll the unit out from the wall to see where the noise is coming from and remove part of the cardboard backing to get access to the compressor and fan.

Our ac unit is making a loud noise and there is water coming into the house via the vents. we cleaned out the vent and took some of the water out of the middle pan and the outside pan, and it doesn't...


My recommendation would be to have some one knowledgeable in refridgeration come in and take a look. You make have more than one problem going on. However the water build up can be due to a plugged drain line. Try using a wet and dry vac to clean the drain line . the fan noise may be the fan motor bearings. If this is the case you can remove the fan and possibly have bearing installed but most likely will need to replace the fan motor

Very loud clicking noise from my LG LSC26905TT refridgerator


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?

My GE side by side refridgerator makes a "howling" sound. Any ideas?


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.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge


i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed
