Munchkin burner making steady loud noise

Chrissy Member Posts: 1
Our munchkin burner is making a steady really loud noise that's causing the whole wall and floor to vibrate in our house. Our thermostat is on the lowest we can put it and it was working fine this morning. It sounds a little bit like it may explode. Is there a way to turn off the burner until we can get someone to come look at it?

    Should have a switch

    marked "Gas Burner Emergency Switch ON OFF" filp it to off, should do the trick, should be one at the entry of the boiler room or stairway and one at the boiler itself.. If by chance you have no service or stairway switch, then flip the breaker or pull the firomatic safety, if you dont have them, RUN RUN for your life....

    Most likely

    A bad blower. If you can't find a power switch at the boiler it will soon enough lock up and stop.
