My Frigidaire refrigerator started making a grinding noise in the freezer side of the side by side. I turned down the thermostat and the noise goes away. But, when I turn it back on, it comes back.

I have emptied and taken out the ice tray and ice maker, but noise continues.

I have unplugged it, but the noise still stays after I have plugged it back in.

This has been going on for a few days.
Any help will be appreciated.

I did check the fan and the area was iced over. What could cause that?
Leak from the icemaker, door left open a bit or caught open from a food item, air leak through the dispensor ( esp flapper door )....
