Check to see if the evaporator fan blade has moved on the motor shaft to strike the fan housing. If so, it can usually be moved back into its proper position. Wiggle the fan blade, and if it feels loose, replace the fan motor. Its part number is(###) ###-#### ***** its price is $57.05. You can buy it at Replacement help is available at the website.

Sounds like a defrost issue more than anything on that unit. Often the defrost thermostat goes bad then frosts builds heavy restricts air and the fan makes noise. Remove the rear panel in the freezer section check for frost build up and if there is check the defrost thermostat as that is the most common thing to be bad. It should test closed 0 ohms with a ohm meter, you can often just visually inspect it if it is bloated like this bad for sure..
