Fridge Freezer Making A Rattling Noise?

It's about 4-6 years old.
Kelvinator Brand.
It hasn't been cleaned in a while, so we took it out because it started a loud rattling (coming from the back of the freezer part) not to do with the fridge.
Doesn't sound like it is the motor, because the sound is only coming from the back of the freezer when you stick your head in to listen.
Basically, we've gave it a clean, sometimes when my dad tilts it backwards, it stops.
But the noise has gone quieter, so I'm not sure what it could of been? Is this a hazard, because my dad wants to leave it running tonight but I don't want too encase it is a problem.
Could it be to do with the ice and the fan that gives the cold air? Or? I'm not sure what it is.
Any help would be great. Thank you. ^^

Best Answer

Your correct. The ice buildup around the fan is interfering with the fans operation. Unplug it and let it defrost. That should fix it.
