usually this is because the fan is clogged with ice and has frozen ice stopping it from spinning otherwise if you see no ice blocking the fan from spinning see the link below and purchase new fan and replace it.

that's just a top mount fridge so if you don't have any ice on the inside back wall of freezer and the fan and compressor is running you could have a freon leak,is everything running if not what isn't running?if you noticed that it has been getting warmer over time remove everything out of the freezer,remove the back inside wall of the freezer,look at the evaporator coil,if you see ice just on top of the coil where the freon lines connect to the evap coil then you have a freon leak,the coil should have an even frost pattern covering the entire coil,if you hear a clicking sound coming from the back then the compressor might not be running,remove the back bottom cover,there's a start device on the compressor part number WPW10448874 the easiest way to check this part is simply unplug the machine remove the start device off of the compressor and shake it,if you hear pieces jingling inside it the device is cooked,you can check it with a meter,you have to write back and let me or whoever might help you know what is going on with it so we can try to help you out,you write the freezer isn't cold and that can be from alt of things,touch the compressor is it red hot or cold?is it running or not,write back

There are three variances of this model ending in S0,S1 or S3 after the last S you provided so you might have a variable speed compressor or a single speed.

It sounds like a single speed.

At the compressor you should have either two or four wires going into it with the light blue and the black being the line voltage (110v ac) and the smaller red and black being the low voltage signal to the variable speed if applicable (4-12 vdc)

It sounds like you have a bad control board and checking voltages will tell if that is the problem. It is located behind the kick panel in the front on the left side and will usually smell/look burnt when removed. The part number may change depending on if it is a S), S1 or S3 so check with your local parts store. (get the model# off of the sticker inside the unit and not off of the owners manual as it is incomplete and sometimes wrong).

This is gonna be one of those ones where it is tough to diagnose without actually being there so I'll do the best that I can!

First things first.. Did you call for warranty service during the first year to have a tech come and look at it? If so, what did they say? And if not,why?

There is no rebalancing needed to compressor..

So now I want to verify it is the compressor.

I have found that sometimes the fan blade will get a crack in it since it is molded plastic and continue to work but gradually get noisier. Have you pulled the plug on the fan motor to make sure that isn't it?

I pulled up your owners manual and it says the compressor is covered for up to 5 years from the date of purchase. You would pay for labor So if you disconnect the fan motor and it is still loud then call for service.. If it quits down immediately then replace the motor and blade.

Unplug your refrigerator and reset breaker with refrigerator unplugged. If breaker tripped again then do the same with all appliance that's is plugged into that breaker loop.
When you find the right one that's tripping the breaker leave it unplugged .
If your refrigerator is tripping the breaker then you have an electrical issue with your refrigerator.
Most of the time compressor is the culprit
