Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
If the noise is definitely coming form the freezer section then the only thing that can cause the noise is the evaporator fan motor behind the back panel inside the freezer. You'd have to remove the back panel inside the freezer starting from the bottom and working your way up until you see the fan. If you see ice or frost build up then thaw it out with a hair dryer but other than that if you don't see anything unusual just replace the fan motor. The bearings tend to get wobbly over time and that creates a lot of shaking and vibration which makes them noisy. Regardless, its definitely a repairable issue and relatively inexpensive at probably $150-200 with parts, trip and labor. For a built-in unit I think it would certainly be worth repairing.
