Does it make the noise when the compressor turns on and off if so its from the sealed system and it is considered normal by the manufacture only thing that has ever worked for me(10% of the time) is to add freon or nitrogen to the sealed system.

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

High-pitched alarm-like sound coming from GE frig - TBX22PRYCRAA

Very common problem is the evap fan located in the freezer section is the cause. Sorry but this is controlled by the main board on the back and only way to fix the problem is with a new board. Sorry about the news but it is the problem.

High pitch/humming noise from Frigidaire Refrig.

You have to isolate this problem. It could be one of three things. The compressor, the condenser fan motor or the water valve that feeds the ice maker and wtaer dispenser. Also if the high pitch sound is compared to that of a bird then it is definitely the condenser motor. To isolate the problem take the back cover off. LISTEN FOR THE HIGH PITCHED/HUMMING NOISE! Use a flash light and see if you can tell where it is coming from while it is doing the noise. Dont try this unless you know what your doing. Stop the condenser fan blade with the end of a hard object, but stop it gradually. Dont try this cause you might brake/bend the blade. But if you did and the noise stop then you figured out your problem. If not ythen disconnect the water valve. It has to doulble harness wires attached to it. if problem still exisit then it has to come from the compressor. Unless you have a warranty then theres nothing no one can do except change it. $300-400 job easily.

Kenmore refrigerator has loud high-pitched noise problem

I would suggest calling sears repair ( this refrig is still under warrenty ) and have them come out to check . If they say it's normal , tell them you want the refrig replaced . You do have rights with a new product not working to your standards .

Noise high pitch noise from the freezer on my side by side

Hi, Remove the rear inside freezer panel and you will be able to see the evaporator fan motor. The fan motor is what is squeeling.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Freezer section evaporator fan motor bearing are going out. This would be indicted by a high pitched squealing noise. Have the fan motor replaced and it should solve your problem.
