refrigerator side of appliance..appears to make this noice when cooling the refrigerator..

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
ok pull the refrigerator out and remove the lower back panel. See if the noise sounds like it's coming from the large big black round metal compressor or the condenser fan motor next to it.

Unable to tell...refrigerator stopped making the noise.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
it's really hard to speculate where the sound may be coming from but if you can't pinpoint it, it's likely coming from the compressor or the condenser fan and one of them may need to be replaced. You'll need to wait for the noise to come up again so you can try to figure out where it's coming from which is the most important thing to solving the problem.
