For the past year, my refrigerator has been been making a squealing/grinding noise. This can last 30 mins to an hour when it occurs. It will sometimes occur 2x/day for days on end and then some days not at all. There's some alignment to it occurring when the compressor is running but hard to tell. I thought it had to do with the ice machine knowing so many of these machines have issues but my ice maker has been turned off for 6 months, it still occurs.

I've had 2 appliance companies come out and one replaced the condenser fan motor. This did not resolve the issue as it happened again prior to the tech leaving (this has been one of the problems, getting a tech there when the noise is occurring). Now, the hypothesis is a bad damper?

Any advice? Anyone had this issue and found resolution? With a newborn at home, this noise has to go.
