I had this same issue and it was driving my wife nuts. Supposedly women hear high pitched sounds better than men? I called my local Appliance Parts Store, I advised them of my problem. My model # is GSH25KGRE BB GE Side by Side. (4 years old) They sold me a evaporator motor for $ 42.00. I was advised that this motor is accessed through the freezer door. After unplugging the refrigerator,I took the first self below the ice maker out, I removed the plastic light cover, there is a plastic piece with 4 slots in it, take the two 1/4 screws out and bend that plastic piece up. You will see the motor housing which needs to be removed I believe there are four more 1/4 screws. The motor itself will have a white fan attached to it which you will use on the new motor. Remove the fan via 4 more 1/4 screws you will also see the wire harness going up through one of the plastic pieces. This is where I had a little trouble, I couldn't get the harness to come apart from the plastic piece, I was afraid I would break something as hard as I was pulling. I decided to cut the 4 wires (red,blue,white,yellow) close to the old motor and splice in my new motor after cutting off the plug. I reassemble the unit and it solved the problem. I am the hero at our house and saved us from having to buy a new unit. My wife wasn't going to take it much longer. This is the part # WR60X10185.

The high pitch is probably caused by a bearing on the fanmotor which is dry or worn and needs replacing. Rate me.

I have a GE Model #GSS20IEPJWW. It started having a high pitch sqealing noise when running. Now the noise has stopped, but now the top of the freezer and the frig side is warm.

the squirrel cage fan motor is squealing,can be lubricated with a graphite or some sort, lubricating with any type of oil might cause a dirt build up on the shaft causing later problems

My freezer is making this high pitch noise, its an industrial Beaufort freezer on wheels

I have the same kind of fridge and it also makes this kind of noises, however, they are on the acceptable level. They sound more like a seal being happy with the new food. It is not all the time but sometimes. I think it is the contraction and expansion of the pipes that cause the noise and is not a sign of any problem. Of course all depends on the level of the noise you have...
Hope it helps. Greg.

Hss25gfpdww The unit makes a horriable high pitch whining noise a

I am not posotive, but it sounds like you may have a piece of debris stuck in the fan underneath. You can check if you pull it out from the wall, make sure you unplug it as to not have the fan come on while you are toying. But thats what it sounds like. If that is not it, I am sure you could locate the noise with it pulled out from the wall, and go from there, Possibly your compressor, but sounds like the fan the way you're explaining it. Good luck

Fridge is making noise

The high pitched sound could be from the evap fan motor. If you can get to it a drop of silicon oil would solve the problem.
