Depends on how difficult it is.

Is it coming from the fan in the freezer section that may be bad or hitting the housing?

Its been doing it all night but of course it stopped now so I cant tell. Can I come back to this when the buzzing starts again?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes for sure let me know lets narrow this thing down!

The noise started again this morning. I cant tell exactly but if I had to say one way or the other, it sounds like its coming from the lower part (freezer). Definitely from the back of the unit. I did notice that just barely touching the refrigerator would make the buzzing stop momentarily and by opening the refrigerator door it stops completely.

There has also been water build up on the lower left side of the freezer below where the water inlet for the ice maker is. The ice breaks when we open the freezer drawer.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes you likely have ice build up by the fan and the fan blade may be hitting it causing the noise. I would remove the item from the freezer and then remove the ice maker in the back panel to see what is hitting the fan blade. If you cannot do that you may want to just remove the items from the freezer and refrigerator and defrost the unit completely and then try it again. The water from the ice maker fill tube may be causing some issue leaking behind it or there may be another issue altogether what is causing the icing liek a bad door gasket or defrosting issue.
