Question about Refrigerators
More then likely your problem is that its not defrosting correctly in the freezer and the ice has built up behind the panel and not allowing the cold air down into your refrigerator.

Try this connect your fridge and then take all your food out and at the top there is a hex or circle bolt with groves/ a slight ramp on it , get a plastic screwdriver and turn it clockwise VERY GENTLY ITS FRAGILE .This turns the timer to defrost .During this all the water will build up and come from under the fridge due to that the draining pan over flows , clean that up and then turn the timer you should hear a click then it should start cooling again .I had this problem too GRR MAYTAG.
Second solution would be to look on the left or where ever there is fridge from the freezer and there are ducts , try to move some ice that may block this

If it is kicking the circuit breaker out in defrost mode, then the defrost timer is faulty. It would be best to just replace the timer instead of checking the wiring schematic. Look at www.partstoday.com for helpful illustrations on parts and identifying pictures.

First analyze from where you are getting the sound.
1)Check the fan at the back side of the freezer.Is it making noise.Remove it and put some oil so it will rotate without sound.Check for the bending and straighten it and see it
doesn't hit on body.
2)compressor motor may vibrating a lot making noise to the condenser coils.It makes the full fridge to vibrate and makes noise.Adhesive stickers will soften them.If still problem persist coil could be damaged.
