Question about Freezers
If you can pull the unit out from the wall, find the motor compartment. There, you'll find a black can with the motor and compressor inside it. This usually creates vibration when running. Check the compressor's mounts, to see if they need tightening or have rubber grommets that have rotted away. The sound could also be coming from a fan somewhere in the machine. There might be a fan in the motor compartment. Find the vents inside the unit that blow cold air. Check the guards to see if a foreign object could have made its way into the vents and jammed a fan. Make sure you unplug the fridge before you stick any hands or tools someplace they wouldn't normally go. You may want to let the unit run while peeking in with a flashlight to locate the source of the vibration, but beware of moving parts and a shock hazard.

This model, being frost free, has a fan for the freezer compartment. On my fridge the fan has stopped altogether. My guess is that the fan is catching either on ice that has formed around it or on the wiring in that area. Have read of this happening to others with this model.
