That's really bad. I think it's time for you to get a new refirigerator.

Is the noise coming from the inside of unit, open the door is it louder? Or can you hear it just standing in front of the unit? Its probaly a motor, either the “inside” evaporator motor or the “outside” condenser motor.

I have a top-freezer Amana refrigerator that suddenly makes grinding noises every 5 minuites or so, lasting for about one second.

Has anyone experienced this before? Is this an indication of some mechanical component starting to fail?
