I recently noticed my 3.5 yr old water heater blower is making a vibrating noise. Never noticed it before. Could there be a problem?

SOURCE: noisy water heater blower

It may just need a new pump coupling. Fairly inexpensive. I don't think you need to replace the whole burner.

Sounds like a truck


If the heater is more then a few years old the heat exchanger is probably corroded. Air flow from the blower motor can't squeeze thru the exchanger fins and causes loud vibrations. It can sometimes be cleaned but usually requires replacement of the heat exchanger. If you are not familiar you should definitely have a professional sevice the unit. Continued use in its current state can cause many other issues. Be prepared because the heat exchanger is the most expensive part of the heater and the most difficult to replace

Loud vibration


1) What brand and type water heater? Gas or electric? Tank or tankless? Or boiler? Solar assisted? Indirect? Wood-burning? Oil-fired? etc?

2) How old is heater? Is this a new installation? Or installation that worked before and vibration is something new.

3) Or are you talking about a washing machine instead of water heater? Or hair dryer? Or GMC truck?

4) Add a comment and give more exact information from label located on side of unit, for possible assistance.

Why does my self cleaning gas water heater make clicking noises?


zdriscoll-

All tank water heaters make some amount noise, clicking and "snapping" sounds, particularly after much of the hot water in tank has been used (like after a long shower) and has been replaced by cold water that is being heated vigorously.

If the noises are accompanied by poor or erratic performance, or obviously if something malfunctions, you may require the services of a repair connection.

Hope this helps.

Bradford White hot water heater - burner lights only 30 seconds


The slightly warm water makes me think of a thermostat problem. The fact that the heater is 10 years old I wonder how hard your water is. Calcium build up kills water heaters. But the yellow flame you mention could be the results of dirty orfices. May want to have a Pro look at that.

Noisy water heater blower


There really is no way to do this. If you put a cap you will restrict the air flow which will cause you to have problems with the water heater, same thing if you where to put screen on it. You can try enlarging the pipe to a 3 inch and see if that works. But 15 years in the trade nothing has been made to reduce the noise

Rheem small 6 gallon water heater vibration/noise


If the water heater is working fine than I would not worry about the function of the water heater. What the problem may be is that some of your WATER LINES HAVE MOVED, AS THEY WERE NOT SECURED PROPERLY. The sound you may have heard was the Copper or PVC(Plastic) lines just getting back comfortable. I Suggest checking that your water lines are secured about every 3 or 4 feet with the proper ancjhor....Metal for metal pipe, copper for copper pipe, etc. Sometime as in my house, pipes are run through a hole drilled through a stud or a piece of wood, usually when hot water is run through this pipe. You can here an expansion of the water line interacting with the pipe expanding, if the hole in the wood was not drilled big enough......Experience of remodeling a very old house.......Joe
