The owners manuals usually have a "what's that noise" section since Refers make all kinds of creaks, groans and moans these days due to refrigerant flow, ice making operations, defrost cycles, etc. Lots of noises possible. Check also for the drip pans underneath vibrating, that can drive you nuts too. Make sure all the metal tubes, etc. are not rubbing anywhere and vibrating. It will take a little flashlight and on your belly work but check mostly the underneath area by the compressor area for things vibrating, etc.
