Do you have a full model number located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section so I can see what would cause the noise is the top right corner? Also, if you open any door does the noise go away?

Model # *****
No the noise does not go away when I open the door.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 2 years ago

OK perfect, if the noise doesn't go away when you open the door, can you check and see if the noise may be coming from behind that back center vent inside the refrigerator against the back wall?

No I that fan was replaced.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 2 years ago

You're going to have to do more investigation because what you're telling me doesn't make sense. You can track down the noise, but there is nothing in the upper right corner of the refrigerator so you need to figure out where the noise is coming from.

Top and left side. The water filter is on the right. When I changed it 3 weeks ago the noise stopped for 2 days. Then started again.
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

O.K try getting water from your unit and see if it makes noise.

I think you are right. I don't think I will be able to help. Sounds like you will in a tech to come out and be able to put hands on to find were your noise is coming from. Your noise/vibration is coming from another location and then just vibrating to the top right.

Best of luck.
