High pitched whine

My new gas boiler started making a weird noise, it's a constant, slightly fluttering whine. It's always there when the boiler is running. Could this be the gas regulator?

    What's the make and model of the boiler, what are your heat emitters, do you have any zones? Post some pictures of the near boiler piping too, that's usually a big help
    You can have it good, fast or cheap. Pick two

    Weil Mclean PEG45. The near boiler piping is already posted under "Junk in sight glass".

    Can you look at the burners while it’s firing and see if anything looks amiss with one of them, like one with a flame in a spot where the others don’t have it?

    Thanks for your comments. The installer will be here at 10 to skim and drain the boiler. I'm curious to see if they notice the noise before I mention it.

    They’ll notice it, but will they say anything is the question 😂

    He heard it, but only after I pointed it out to him. Said it might be an ignition module, which he could replace if need be.

    He acknowledged it only after you pointed it out to him anyway :wink:
