Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one assisting you today. Actually what you may be hearing i not a big deal at all. It can be the components located in the back kicking on to keep the temp of the fridge. Also could be the fridge automatic defrost kicking on which kicks on often. Sometimes you don't notice the noise until later on because it can become dusty back there making the unit louder. I will certainly pull up your model and double check this for you but this is common with almost all units.

I will pull it away from the wall and clean around the back. The noise was not like this a month ago. I hope it helps. Thank you
