Loud humming noise as fridge is running My Samsung fridge is not yet a year old. It has started this loud humming noise while it is running. it varies how long this noise will go on, sometimes a few minutes other times a half hour. I flip the breaker to make it stop but ultimately it starts again. This happens many times in a day. I have opened the doors to see if the noise is loud inside the fridge and it seems to be coming from behind. There is a protective cover on the back so I can't see what is going on while the noise is present. Any suggestions?

According to the repairman who came from Sears to fix my samsung, there's nothing they can do. He said refrigerators have always started humming after a couple years but we just couldn't hear it before because it was well insulated. But you can't add insulation because it might cause the unit to overheat. So I guess I'm stuck with a 2 year old refrigerator that wasn't cheap that I now hate!
