Kenmore fridge buzzing

I bought a kenmore bottom freezer fridge just over a year ago and it's out of warranty. It started buzzing (down the bottom back) every few hours for about ten seconds at a time. This went on for a week or two and then it died.

We had a repair person come and they said it should have been on a dedicated circuit and because it wasn't, it broke the invertor. He ordered the invertor and we replaced it ourselves along with getting a dedicated circuit installed.

Two days later it's buzzing again but it hasn't gone warm like last time. Any idea what might be going on?

Thank you so much for any suggestions!

Certainly a lack of a dedicated circuit didn't cause this issue. I like dedicated circuits for fridges because there is no potential for anything else in that circuit to trip the breaker and cause food spoilage if I am away .

However low voltage or other circuit problems might cause issues.
