Could you post the model number for us?

I would check to see if it had a fan in the back by the compressor. If so then make sure the fan is running when the compressor is running.
Also check the condenser coils to make sure they are clean.
Hope you find our site helpful.

check to make sure your compressor is not sitting against any portion of your fridge.  If it is it can cause noise and vibration if it is touching.
