Kay, these are known for having faulty evaporator fan motors (failed motor bearings). This is what has failed in your fridge. This is a tedious and time consuming repair, you may want to purchase the evap motor and hire someone to install it for you. Just one of the reasons I recommend this is that 50% of the time, the new motor's wiring harness will not match the harness on the fridge and so must be converted to adapt. The evaporator fan motor is the fan inside the freezer, behind the back panels. If you choose to repair it yourself, UNPLUG THE FRIDGE FIRST! Then remove all items from freezer. Remove all shelves and bins. Remove the ice bin. Remove the lower back panel. You should be able to see the motor now, but you can not access it yet. The motor is mounted in a plastic shell/housing, this entire housing must be removed (along with the related wire harness). Install the new motor and rebuild the unit. This doesn't sound like much, but since you've not done one before, figure 2 1/2 to 3 hour job time. (With practice, it still takes us ~50 minutes) Wiring is CRUCIAL! Take note of EVERYTHING and the way things are routed in there. Otherwise, you won't know if you did it right until you have it rebuilt and plugged back in, if something were mis-wired... you'll know it now. Then have to disassemble to locate the problem. The part number you'll need is #WR60X10185, and sells for ~$45.00 at your local appliance parts retailer. If you hire someone to perform the labor, they won't be able to "soak" you on the part price. The good news is that after the repair is complete, your fridge will cool better AND I've never had a callback on these! (Which means that the replacement motors are MUCH better than the original factory installed ones.)

Unplug and closely examine the area for a loose fan blade or anything that may be causing the noise. Better now than to get damage that could be prevented. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

Very common problem is the evap fan located in the freezer section is the cause. Sorry but this is controlled by the main board on the back and only way to fix the problem is with a new board. Sorry about the news but it is the problem.
