Sounds kinda lame, but check every nut, bolt and screw on the heater and where it fastens to the wall. something may simply be loose!

Ariston euro-combi boiler not giving hot water


odd noise like popping or singeing fire....clicking noises.....sounds like you have a water leak putting out the pilot.......or your thermo coupling is bad....or the noise is the tank full of calcium buildup and that will make noises when the burner is on

New Rheem Fury Guardian System 50 gal water heater model 42V50-40F. Loud low humming or drone sound when in operation. What can this be?


Hi,
Is the noise when the water is running or when the burner is running???

If it is just the water then the noise often is the flow checks inside the tubes going to and from the heater...

If it is the burner, then the noise could be the gas going through the gas valve...a bit of moisture or dirt can sometimes cause noises...usulally will correct its self after a bit of time...no worry...

poping crackling sounds and such are common with mineral builsup in the bottom of the heater....
Flush the heater and get the dirt out....

sizzling noises sometimes happen from condensation dripping onto the burner....gain not a problem...

sometimes the gas properties will cause the gas to make noises when going through the gas orifice into the burner... usually this is air or a LP air mixture known as "citigas" that will burn like natural gas but really isn't and it will make noises such as your are describing...again no problem...

Ultimately the noise you hear is not a problem but can be irritaing if the heater is where you can hear it easily...

Feel free to comment back if you have any more questions...

When hot tap is turned on there is a banking noise from boiler.Have had new pump fitted and have domestic hot water and central heating.Noise continues, but not as bad as before.When heating switches on...


try by draining tank. it may have sediment build up in it. heres how. go to www.ehow.com/how_5544402_drain-hot-water-tank.html this site will explain it better. have a good day! Sediment can drift into recirculation lines, jam open check valves, and cause the recirc pump to stick until it burns out. it causes noise, sometimes enough noise to annoy, or even frighten, people if the tank is inside a dwelling. The noise is caused by small amounts of water under the sediment layer turning to steam bubbles, which then collapse violently.

Rheem glas fury water heater rattling


Thermostat may be heating element hotter than normal causing a change in temperature causing the noise. You could try adjusting temp down a little on thermostat. It sounds like it's getting the water very hot and thermostat may not be working correctly.

Hot water heater is leaking and making noise


Hit the disconnect and call a plumber. Sounds like your heating element or elements have gone bad and need to be replaced. also shut off the water. This is repairable, but it is HIGHLY recommened to have someone with expeirence in this kinda of problem fix it since you are messing with water and electricity. The repair should be no more then 200 dollars
