OK ... I was stupid and placed some freshly boiled potatoes into the
freazer to cool down before I would fry them.
Not sure if that has anything to do with it .. but now my fridge is
very loud when it runs. Seems like the noise is coming from the
center or top back and not at the bottom. Very loud .. won't be able
to sleep with the noise.
Next time try just flooding them with cold water for a couple of
minutes, and if you have the luxury of an ice maker, just put
them in a collander and cover them with ice. STCP! (STOP the
cooking process!) or you will be frying mashed potatoes. In the
freezer doesn't do it.

Likely not related to potatoes. Check the leveling screws, any coils on the
back touching a hard wall surface, shelves missing a support peg, things like
that. Vibration has to start with something out of kilter, so inspect the
workings at the bottom for a misplaced compressor, evaporator fan that's in
trouble, flapping shrouds...you get the picture. Good luck.
Just followed the noise .. emptied the freezer, removed the bottom panel
.... spun the fan motor ( worked fine ) turned it on ... and noise gone.
Put it back together and noise gone. I have no idea what it was. But it is
working perfectly again.
Hmmm ... wonder what this would have cost me if I called a techie in ???
Did the fan spin perfectly free the first time? Or did you have to push
it to get it going? It could have been obstructed by some junk that fell
loose while you were disassembling things. Or it could be the motor is
having a hard time starting the fan and vibrating because of it, soon to
Keep an eye on this.
You may yet need that service call. Don't gloat yet. ;-)
