Hi. I'm not an expert but most of my boilers in the past get noisy when they get air in the system. Underneath your boiler will be an inlet tap to top up the sysem with water. Make sure you bleed all of your radiators of air till they squirt water then keeb topping up the system and bleeding till no air remains in any of the radiators. There should be a pressure dial on the front of your boiler and there is usually a red fixed needle which shows what the opperating pressure is. I would do this before anything else and see if this solves the problem. :-)

Glow worm 45-60 standing boiler making banging noises when in operation


The noise you refer to is called Kettling, it is caused by the hot water in your boiler not being able to leave the boiler quick enough, if the problem developed quickly and your system is a "fully pumped " system this would generally point to your pump either has failed or is on its way out, i.e . your radiators would not heat up as the hot water is stuck in the boiler hence the banging......( if you know where the pump is you can generally feel if it is running by a small vibration ) if you have gravity hot water and pumped heating circuit then I would assume that it is noisy when just doing HW, and the banging is a problem that has gradually got worse it can indicate that the boiler is scaling up (are you in a hard water area). if this is correct there are various additives that can be put in the system to help quieten it down, I suggest you really need a heating engineer to diagnose fully.

Elite 50 boiler


There should be a pressure drain to purge out all the air. Sound like there is an air bubble in the system somewhere.

Water to hot for gas boiler boiler gos off


It could be dyslexia, but I think you want to know what may be wrong with your boiler in this case!
This is a VERY old design. The diaphragm is on the water section, this operates a switch to turn ON the pump, and a further device causes the diverter valve to divert boiler water from CH duty to HW duty.
From your description it appears that the boiler is shutting down on internal boiler water temperature (too high), your 'briefly too hot' HW symptom may be caused either by the boiler side of the secondary heat exchanger being blocked/caked in sludge, OR the DHW side of it being scaled. Either way a new or replacement (descaled) secondary heat exchanger MAY inprove things. It's not easy on these old clunk-pots, and EVERY disturbed seal will subsequently leak, so get a good supply of o-rings and fibre seals before you start ("you" being the competant fitter you employ)
