Check to make sure both fans are running. I had the same problem my small fan stoped working causing my big fan to work overtime. Sounded like my car was a small plane bout to take off. I had to pull the fans down crack open the small one and clean it out there was alot of dirt in there causing it to lock up. Cleaned it out put it back together been fine since. That was at 85k got 100k now.

A quick check I did was to start AC up and run for a couple of minutes and check to see if the small fan is spinning. If the small fan doesn't run then you might have this same problem.
I cracked mine open and found dirt also inside mine. been working ever since. good luck..
