It sounds like the gland on the valve is leaking unusual in a valve so young but it does happen. is the valve electrical operated or water pressure. you should be able to get a complete diaphram kit with all seals etc .

Vaillant boiler leaking only when heating switched off.


It would seem a joint has come a bit loose from the heating and cooling cycle. put a drip pan under the leaking area( the drips would evaporate quickly), then next time you shut it down go through all the joints in the area with wrenches to find the loose joint.

My boiler has a squeeling sound during the warmu up. I think it is coming from the expansion tank?


The squealing sound generally comes from a circulator pump, if it has a drive coupling between motor and impeller housing there is an oil cup/or oil hole, add oil until it is full! If it is a cartridge style circulator you may have to replace it.

Sometimes air in a system will cause this squeal noise as well. Purging the air out of system may be required. If you need to know how to purge a system there is a good pdf file at this link for $8.95 The Basics of Purging Air
From your Forced Hot Water System
&
Troubleshooting A Leaking Boiler
Relief Valve
Miller Furnace Books Repair

The Expansion tank is factory set to 12 psi and the only way to tell if it remains with 12 psi is to drop the system pressure to zero and check the tank with a pressure gauge. If water comes out the air valvestem when you apply the pressure gauge, the tank is bad, replace it! If there is less then 12 psi on the tank add air to 12 psi and open water valves back up to normal operating pressure. Usually the feed valve will automatically stop at the preset setting.If the boiler is leaking water out any relieve valve drains, the feed valve, relief valve and or expansion tank may need to be replaced.

Boiler leaks when shut down


Hi,
I hate to tell you this but you probably have a leak in the casting of the boiler...it is very slow... therefore the water will evaporate as long as it is hot and you do not see the water...but if you let it cool , not only will the casting shrink and open the hole a bit, but none of the water evaporates....
After 35 years it is time to replace that boiler...

I have a Rheem glas fury model 22-40 gas water - leaking


Dear Hank McNeal; I have successfully used a "boiler plug" to seal a water heater tank leak in 2007. It was a 100 gallon electric commercial hotel unit. To this day it's still in use. It depends where the leak is located....Predrilling the leak is necessary to be sure the plug will ernguage it's threads into good material... Start as small as possible, then use the best suited plug. they come in an assortment of sizes. rheem-glas-fury-model-22-40-gas-water-qbzdprdp3yetvbzozs4dsujq-4-0.jpg

I have a leak in my water heater coming from around one of the legs. If I shut off the water, the leak seems to change to one of the other legs. Is there some sort of new pan that I can buy or a part that...


Sorry, Sam it sounds like the water heater is defective, unless you can find a leaking connection. It sounds like you have a leak in the heater proper. The reason the leak moves is that, when you isolated the water, it cooled and a slight vacuum is pulled, and the water picked a different course (probably). Before you change the heater out, look at the threaded connections for leakage. Check the inlet and outlet lines, boiler drain valve, pressure relief, and any other threaded connections that you may have. If you find any leakers, you can repair them with wrenches and teflon tape. If no leaks are found at any of the threaded connections, the assumption is that the tank has developed a pinhole leak. They generally are at the bottom 1/3 of the tank. What you can do in the future is to either buy the kind of hetaer that is designed to stir up and remove the scale and sediment in the bottom of your heater, or to manually flush your heater from time to time.
Best regards, --W/D--
