Prior to the first episode, I had emptied the storage bin to fill a cooler.
Any idea what is causing ice to form in the reservoir? I feel like this is the main symptom of the root problem leading to the screech/hum.

Condenser fan motor
These are the 3 things on this machine that could make a sound as you described.
Since none of us are there you will have to determine which is going bad and making the sound.
Probably not the compressor.

Meant to say "water to get below freezing in the reservoir."
If I get this ice out of the reservoir and turn the machine back on, it operates fine...making ice as if everything is fine. I am just wondering what causes the ice to get below freezing in the reservoir.

If not, access the plug to the circulation pump and disconnect it. Does the noise stop? Then there you are.
I have only seen the water reservior freeze on units who's. Circ pump has failed...

Yea, verily...may have a bin thermistor problem..
Usually see those fail open or shorted...take a resistance reading and do tell.
