Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Refrigerator noise


Hello, I have a refrigerator freezer. It is several years old. Maybe 12 to 15 years old. The motor is starting to make a buzzing sound. Not overly loud, but loud enough to wonder is something might be wrong. Two questions, one is this dangerous, two what do you think may be wrong ? Do you think the unit is going bad ? I am at the library and don't have the model number.I just want a general answer meaning when a motor starts making noise does this mean that its generally gone.
Thank You

Not much to go on.....There are at least three motors and even more on some units.  When you get home, grab the model number and brand of the unit so I can see your unit as you do.  In additon, try and isolate where the noise is coming from.  Freezer section, behind the unit or in the refrigerator section.

Waiting to hear from you,
