Default fridge help

My fridge is making a noise that sound almost like a low pitched squeal coming frome the bottom. looking from the back side it is a round thing on the bottom that is very warm and the noise goes away for a while when you bang on it, any one know what this is?

The "round thing" is probably your compressor. If it is making noise it may be loose.

If the fridge was low on freon it would not work properly so I don't think it needs to be charge unless you have a cooling issue also.

Does it sound more like a vibrating noise?

It could be age related.

This is the first rule of d.i.y, hit it and see if it still works!
