Fridge making noise

I have a hotpoint SA199 fridge and starting last night it is making a loud noise when the fridge turns on. The noise whines down as the fridge turns off. The noise seems to be coming from the side below the freezer. I have not pulled the fridge out yet - that will be this weekends task. I have never worked on a fridge any ideas at what to look at or for would be appreciated.

Hi Jcustance,
There are 2 fan motors in the refrigerator.

one is an evaporator fan motor, which is located in freezer either in bottom or back wall of freezer.

the other motor is a condensor fan motor which is at the bottom of refrigerator down by the compressor


one of those motors could be making a noise


can you describe the type of noise???


whine , squeal, humm , scrapping???
