I have a Whirlpool side-by-side that's 12 years old. It operates perfectly fine, but for a couple of months it  has been making a loud buzzing noise from the compressor area (well almost everything is in that area) for exactly 10 seconds, and then about 30 seconds later a loud rattle that seems to be coming from the upper part of the unit.

Two years ago I asked here about my defrost drain clogging. I made a heater strap for it and all has been perfectly fine since (I didn't make the aluminum drain surround though, I hope it didn't melt any plastic). I can't get parts shipped to me since I don't live in the USA, but I'd still like to hear what might be the problem.

 The model  number is ED22PQXDW02

Depending on model number...

it could be the Compressor Start Relay / Overload...

have you tried Sears Canada Parts

What would be the rattle? It doesn't seem to be from the same area.

The model is ED22PQXDW02

The refrigerator works normally, except for these two noises. I should also add that I don't hear the compressor or fan running (maybe I shouldn't hear them) at any time this is happening, but the refrigerator keeps a constant temperature.

Sounds silly , but do you have an ice maker not hooked up to water but not shut off.  Back in my sears days we had a whiz kid order every moving part on a fridge. Another tech went and lifted the arm on the ice maker = noise left.

That arm - is it the thin wire on/off one?:yikes:

I did that and will monitor. So it won't sense that the ice level is low, open the water valve, then not do something up in the ice maker area?

I hope so. If it is I will owe you a .:pint:
