My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
It is hard to say what the high pitched noise was.
It may have been the fact that you have the genset hooked directly into the house with no transfer switch, and when the power came back on, it burnt the generator.
It may have a bad bearing.
What are the model and serial numbers of the genset?
