This morning is actually the icemaker. When you open the freezer door is cuts power to the icemaker but if you hold the light switch in you'd see the noise is coming from the icemaker itself. Try to thaw out the icemaker with a hair dryer in case ice is jamming up the icemaker. If the noise continues, you'll need to replace the icemaker.
