Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Keep in mind. If you know how to fix is good but if other will fix for you then it'll cost more to fix than just buy new one.
I'll never fix the followings:
Fridge, washing machine, dryer, microwave, vacuum, TV, VCR, DVD player, toaster, electric range, dishwasher and other house appliance.

You are seriously frozen up. Defrost the unit completely. Then, be aware that 'window shopping', leaving uncovered liquids in the box and poor door sealing (too heavy a load on the door ... too much on shelves) can cause condensation. Defrost with hot air or leave unplugged and open for about 2 days. You'll see alot of water come out.

SOURCE: Fridge noise
Some larger refrigeration units have fans, but typical domestic ones usually do not, only inside the fridge/freezer compartment as such, and is used to force cold air inside the unit to help keep the contents cold.
As for the fire risk, anything electrical usually have a certain amount of risk as far as fire hazards are concerned, but certainly a lot lower then say an electrical heating element or similar device.
The noises you describe usually come from the pump itself, and i can not say if your particular fridge would have any type of fan on it not knowing the model, makes it very difficult to give any sort of prognosis - based on specific models and their typical faults/noises.
Unplugging the fridge simply stops the pump, and the noise usually returns in a minute or two as you have described, simply because the fault/noise is still there.
Pumps and repair work can be expensive, especially if the fridge is an older model and based on the average that most electrical units have a typical lifespan of 1 - 5 years depending on the quality of manufacture.
Look at it this way, a good basic unit costs anywhere from $800 - $1,500 and some of the more expensive models start from around $1,800 + ( Prices are based on Australian models and are quoted in Australian dollars )
Ok so lets break this down a little, i buy a new fridge for $1,000 and it lasts approximately 5 years, this is not expensive if you look at the cost per year which is approximately $200 / year.
Compared to the cost of repairs, typical service has a call out fee, plus parts and labor which can run into literally 100's of dollars. I guess what i am saying here is, they do wear out in time, due to fair wear and tear, and planning to buy a newer one every few years, is not such a bad idea - considering when you weigh up the possibilities of having purchased a device that can keep food cold for up to 5 years ( and in some cases longer ) for around $200 / year, planned replacement models make sense in the long run. A good way to know, is by looking at the warranty and plan to have a newer one to replace it within 12 months of the warranty's expiration, with the added bonus, you can now plan to sell the one you currently have for a few hundred dollars to help with the cost of getting a replacement.
Trust this helps you out a little, and please take the time to rate this answer, thank you.

OK, loud noise, error code, and poor ice machine performance...I had all three on my 25 cf french door LG frige. After I found out that 'Er FF' was a code for the fan motor, I took out the freezer drawers and found that the panel at the back of the freezer was not seated at the top. It was sagging and the fan motor was not being held up to the exhaust port above it...it was just blowing air in circles instead of through the refrigerator. I was able to push the panel at the top and get it to seat. Now it's MUCH quieter and seems to work better too.
