It isn't likely fuel line has frozen, I would suspect more the oil is like glue, and the battery is probably shot. You may wish to consider a cold weather kit, you can get other brand OEM oil heaters that screw in the drain plug hole, battery electric blanket, and alternator strip adhesive heaters.

High pitch noises are very difficult to isolate. Since you have replaced the refrigerator, I would look for something else in the immediate vicinity that might be generating the sound.

If it's been very cold you may have a frozen fuel line. Put some isopropel type fuel dryer in it and let it sit for a while before tring to restart it.

Yamaha 5700 manual start gen. Pulls but will not start, fresh oil. And I"m at 5600 feet. And outside temp. Is about 38 degrees.

What have you tried so far? An engine needs fuel, air and spark to work properly.
Fuel - Has the generator been sitting for more than a couple of months? There could be bad gas in it, and/or varnish built up inside somewhere in the fuel tank/lines. The carburetor could be plugged somewhere blocking proper fuel delivery.
Air - The choke may not be working/applied properly, or the air filter clogged.
Spark - The spark plug could be fouled, have you tried seeing if there is spark or not? Is the spark plug wire on tight, is it the correct one, is it clean and gapped properly, etc?

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

Freezer not freezing

Because it stopped cooling so fast, over night, I would make sure the compressor is running and the condenser fan motor that sits next to it.
