Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

That is caused by pressure on the system from a stopped up water filter or an iced up water reservoir, if nothing else in the refrigerator section is freezing like drinks or what have you then that is not gonna be the problem. A bad water inlet valve can cause that also but if it quiets down and does ok after letting water out of the dispenser then likely that is not going to be a bad water valve, change your water filter and that should stop it.
