Have got a Worcester Danesmoor 20/25 oil fired boiler.
Last heating season there was a large clunk/bang a few seconds after
the burner stopped working. The local supplier's maintenance man said
that the screw holding the baffles together had worked loose and that it
had probably been incorrect (which I took to mean the screw not fully
tightened) from the start.
Certainly once it was attended to the clunk was no longer in evidence.
This season I get very slight clicking noises once the burner stops for
the first 90 minutes of firing in the early mornings. The noises are
like cooling down noises which they might be of course. At other times
during the day there is nothing to be heard.
In the back of my mind was the thought that the baffle screw was being
worked lose again. The boiler is 8 years old and it took 7 years to get
the screw to the loose stage originally.
Was wondering, if this was the case, if it is a job for Araldite or fire
cement as a sort of locktite for a permanent repair.
What have others done?
Is this a known problem?
Thanks in advance for the experience of others.
