Question about GE Refrigerators
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.
