My Refrigerator Makes a Brand New Noise

UPDATE: Easily fixed! Unload the freezer, unscrew the back upper panel, and found a bit of ice had fallen onto the fan itself. Removed the ice, and it's good as new. It's also happened on two occasions that ice has fallen onto the fan, melted and re-froze in such a way that it stops the fan completely, and everything in the freezer begins to melt. Same procedure to fix it - remove the back panel, and chip ice off the frozen fan, which starts running again immediately (if the motor hasn't burnt out). Not sure how to keep the ice from getting into the fan, I think the back panel should be re-designed to prevent this.

Branded as Frigidaire, manufactured by Electrolux.

We came home from work to find it making this noise. It does have the optional icemaker, and the ice tray was quite overfilled at the time - I flipped the lever up to shut the icemaker off and removed the ice bucket, emptied it to about half-full, yet the noise remains.

It sounds like a fan grinding on something. Could it simply be a chunk of ice fell down inside against a fan, and it's going to take awhile to grind it away?

Would a failing compressor make a different sound?

The other noise in the background is my cat sharpening his claws on a chair.
