Hi Can any one tell me why an Ideal Icos HE15 boiler that is 18 months old,
would suddenly start making a loud and vibrating noise, when the boiler
fires up from a cold start. The noise and vibration last for about 20
seconds and then stops. Would appreciate any help Thanks.
Is the boiler oil fired or gas ?
Could also be not getting enough oil when starting due to a plugged oil
Have you changed it since the burner was installed ?
If a new one still gives the same problems, call a serviceman in.
(they should be changed every year anyway)
If it's gas fired, shut it off quick and call the serviceman
No one on usenet can offer you a guaranteed fix without seeing this.
Hi, we have had an ideal boiler fitted today and it sounds like we have
the same problem. The whole system vibrates and it sounds like an
aeroplane taking off! This has happened a few times and then the
boiler cut out. We have had the men who fixed it out and they don't
know what it is doing it. Sorry that I am not helping you but would you
be able to help me by telling me what the problem is if you get it
sorted? I am really worried about mine. Thanks very much.
