IS it from the fan inside of the unit?

You may want to remove the back panel inside the unit and check and see if the fan blade on the motor is hitting ice or something. The fan blade is just pressed on the motor shaft so sometimes they walk off the shaft and can hit something. Check that and see. If it is all iced up defrost it.

All I ask is please select the 5 STAR rating at the top of your page before leaving otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. BONUSES are always appreciated...Thanks and you can come back anytime for free followup questions & Happy Holidays!

There is probably ice built up around the evaporator fan blade. Unplug it and open the door for 24 hours to allow it to thaw and it should restore quiet operation. Of course, if the garage is not heated, it will not thaw on its own.
