If the phone call is $18 more than the initial $22, I would rather not communicate by phone.

the only moving thing in that area is the evaporator fan motor , its possible its defective or something is hitting the blade to make that noise , the rear panel would need to come off to access ,that fan is running constantly to move air throughout the freezer and fridge ..some air may have gotten in and is hitting the blade ..
