Question about Haier Refrigerators
Our fridge/freeze has periods of 10/15 mins at least 3 times a day when it is very noisy and the noise is getting worse, can be heard upstairs. Otherwise it works. Any advise. Based in Dublin Ireland and still under warranty but who are the Haier agents in Dublin, as we can't find them now?
Intermittent noise is usually a sign that it is not flat/ on an unstable floor. The truth of the matter is that all appliances today are built cheaper as time goes on and that makes funny things happen including noise.
The fact that it is not happening all the time tells me that it is not a mechanical failure. IE: if a motor goes bad,it stays bad and does not have mood swings 3 times a day!
Easy fix.. When it starts making noise,just put your hand on the side of it and gently push. If it gets softer/goes away then you need to shim a corner or adjust the feet (most delivery guys drop it and leave. They do not adjust feet/ doors/ or anything. They just deliver) You can try different parts until you get it right but the hard part is being there when it happens

that because the internal fan is hiting the ice or has bad bushings you can hear the noise just with the door close because when you open the door there is a switch the one turns off the internal fan so when you close the door it turn on the fan again if you wants to hear that with the door open just open the door and push the botton swich with your fingers and you'll hear the noise

Ok. So first things first. LG have a reputation with all their products. THEY ARE ALL BAD! If you remember GoldStar, they are now LG. GoldStar had horrible products. Now this is what LG has. The fact that the filters are cleaned and the units are serviced is an abosulte plus and will provide the units with extra longevity. Now are these drains are they used for water drainage. If so the upstairs units shouldn't need them unless there is some sort of rise in the drain pipe.
Now to the noise. It seems like there is something which is causing the fan to make a noise. It could be loose bearing or a piece of the fan which has broken away causing it to hit the inside of the unit. Since it is on both units, it would be a generic problem with this series and unfortunately is what you are stuck with now.
To combat this problem, I would: ring LG and the company who installed them and demand that they be repaired and have a warranty on the repairs. Just a heads up, LG are really bad to contact should you have a complaint, so keep persisting that they be repaired free of charge since that they are still under warranty.
If you are not happy with LG or your installers response, I would remove the units and have another brand put in. I recommend Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Panasonic. Both units are whisper quiet. In fact they are quieter that the LG.
Oh and that only reason why LG boast about their "whisper quiet-ness" is because that is probably the only good going for them - and thats' not even right!
I hope that I have helped you in some way. Good Luck!

I just returned the same fridge to Lowe's where I bought it using the warranty for the same problem. The temperature sensors went out, and everyone said the computer board needed to be replaced but no one could seem to get it together enough to order us one. Month later we are getting a new fridge.
