Try clearing everything away from the bottom venting in the freezer and check for ice build up in the vents. Defrost it like you would in the "good old days" and to ensure it doesn't happen again, keep a 1" to 2" clearance in front of the vents in the freezer. If need be, set a cookie cooling rack on it's side to act as a barrier for the vents to ensure proper air flow.

the middle insulation hasbecome water logged, forma faulty defrost tube, so, every time trhe unit defrost, 2 maybe 3 times a day it will spill water inti the vents, andin to the refrig, the only correct way to fix is to have the enitre center drain block replaced, part not that expensive but labor to install may be, ohter then nussincence, not really affecting machines workings

If it is a metal to metal grinding noise it could be a warning of a potential compressor failure. BUT try to localize the sound before you panic!
It could also be one of the fans wobbling or rubbing against the housing.

The flakes are contaminants (minerals) in the water. Typically a sign of hard water, such as well water. A GOOD filter is highly recommended to control the contaminants, and must be replaced often for best results. Most hardware outlets as well as appliance dealers offer filters just for this application and should make the ice taste better. While the minerals are usually harmless and some even claim they're beneficial, you should have your water tested periodically if on a well just to be safe.

Definitely a clogged drain line. you will need to remove the back wall and pour hot water into the bottom middle in the back of the freezer compartment, one glass at a time, until it drains through to the drip pan at the bottom of fridge. It is a messy job but the results will save a good fridge.

Good Luck

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP
