Hi Everyone...Bought a GE fridge model GTH17DDRWW six months ago and since day one it squeeks loudly while in the cooling cycle. The noise appears to be coming from the cap tube area where it enters the evaporator. I put a bunch of black sound suppressor tape on there, (forgot the technical name for the stuff), but it's just as loud. Drives me crazy. Any advice would be appreciated...Thanks!

Model number isn't quite right but the source of the noise is most likely the evaporator fan motor, it's right there in that same area and these motors are famous for squeaking once they go bad:  http://www.repaircli...0X10141/1092993

Temporarily disconnect the fan and check to see if the noise stops
