Check to see if the unit it level, sounds like it is not. The unit may be like a Samsung model that has this issue. The tray that catches the ice is supposed to be slanted towards the back of the unit.

Pull it out and clean the back. When you re position it, put it in a slightly different spot. If it has a kick strip and filter at the bottom, clean that too. The humming is caused by harmonics and just needs a small change to get rid of it.

This can be a complex problem. Test whether the defrost heater circuit is getting 120 v from the main control board. If it is getting the voltage, the main control board is okay. You could have a broken heating element or a blown fuse in the defrost control assembly. Here's a video for a different error code that shows how to access the freezer evaporator in that type of refrigerator: youtube.com/watch?v=a4MdwuoN3jc Unplug the refrigerator and use the procedure in that video to remove the evaporator cover in the freezer. Check the resistance through the defrost heater and replace it if it's electrical open (measures infinite resistance). If the defrost heater is okay, you may need to replace the defrost control assembly which contains the defrost thermistor and fuse. You might want to call a service person on this.

u more than likely have to remove the bottom plate first and the screws along the back wall are most likely covered with a plastic covering

There should be an access panel on the back side of the refrig. Remove that you you should see a tube running down into the drain pan. Often that tube gets plugged and needs to be removed and cleaned. If it is a rubber tube, consider replacing it as the rubber gets old and sticky with age and that stickyness causes the plugging.
