Samsung refrigerator-loud vibrating sound with door closed

Samsung double door fridge on top, freezer on bottom:
Model #: RF266AERS
Serial #: 43FD4GBS900108 D

This morning I noticed a loud vibrating sound. When you open the door, it sounds like a motor running down and it stops. Then when you close the door, there is a delay of less than 30 sec. and then it starts again. Seems to be getting louder as day goes on and it seems to come from the top of the fridge, in the back. There was ice over two small openings at the back/top of the fridge so I tried to scrape most of that out, but it did not seem to impact the sound.

The fridge and freezer are staying cold, but it sounds like some kind of motor is running overtime and I'm afraid something soon will be not working!

Thanks for your help!
