My freezer has been making an intermittent grinding noise recently, and it seems like it is getting progressively worse. It seems that the noise gets really bad, with the grinding events occurring very close together late at night when the freezer has gone a long time without being opened.
It seems to go away for a few minutes once I open up the freezer door for a few seconds.
Here is an audio clip of the noise: Frigidaire freezer making intermittent grinding noise
Any insights here would be appreciated!
