do you have a icemaker turned on? is there a water hooked up to the fridge ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
At one point, after the noise started, I turned the ice maker off. No change in noise so I turned it back on. Yes, water is hooked up.

how old is this fridge ?has it been doing it from the beginning?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The refrigerator is 10-12 years old. Geez, that's hard to believe, but I think we remodeled the kitchen in '04 or '05. It started making the noise last week.
