I have weilmclain 97+ 110 that is 6yrs old that is sparaticly making a vibration noise,lasts a couple minutes, don't get any faults or shuts boiler down, heat exchanger cleaned last March, still getting noise
You need to provide more information. Possibly, posting the noise.0
Is the noise coming from the blower or combustion ?
There was an error rendering this rich post.0
Oil or gas fuel? What type of burner? Pictures?—
That's often like trying to describe a squeak in your car.
FWIW, I've seen circulators make noise that travels through the whole system making it hard to find. A small section of rubber hose used like a crude stethescope can often help find noises. While it's acting up, put the hose on the circulator(s), burner motor,etc.
This is a fire tube condensing boiler. Typically the noise is from the combustion not being set correctly with a digital combustion analyzer or in some cases the gas line being undersized. Nothing we can do to help you with a combustion issue but if you post pictures of the boiler and piping we can see if the gas line is a possible problem.0
Nat gas or LP? A mechanic's stethoscope that you can get at an auto parts store would help pinpoint the noise. Any valves not fully open?0
