My fridge motor is running louder than it's ever ran in it's life, and has been for a couple of days. It's only about 3-4 years old. Should I be concerned?

Before you panic, pull it away from the wall and clean all dust on the back of it and clean the floor under it. Then if the fridge has a removable door on the bottom (just under the doors) remove it or flip it down and clean the dust.

This fixed my fridge, hopefully it will fix yours too.

I was going to advise just as Len did. People forget to clean the dust from the back of their fridges. This is the first place you look.

Note to self: Pull out and clean at back of fridge.

Hit the compressor, that sometimes does the trick. But your compressor is likely dying.

UPDATE: Freezer now has no cold air - fridge still works good, but slightly colder. Weird....:scratch:
