Can you tell if a squeak will happen? Does it always happen in a specific way?
If you can play an open G without squeaks, start adding fingers one at a time and see if any fingering starts to want to squeak. Vibrations move up and down the clarinet tube from the mouthpiece to the first open hole (in the chalameau). Look around the area just where the last finger went down. look at pads and maybe a wrong key did not close properly in that area. Clarinets are logical things and logically thinking about they work can lead you to find the problem.

If squeaks happen anywhere differently each time, then embouchure may be the problem. A good teacher could be a big help right now. Search for Tom Ridenour's videos on YouTube. He has hundreds and there are some on finding clarinet problems.
