Hi,
I,d suggest that you have either a case seal Damaged, allowing air into the casing.
Also possible fault may lie within the Flue air pressure Valve/Switch If applicable.
The heater/Boiler will have certain conditions to meet.
The Fan/flue switch ( Pressure switch. Will be designed to speed up the fan, before firing the main Burner.
As for the Noises, i,d suggest that the boiler is whats commonly known or reffered to As Kettling. Which usually indicates Overheating. This would cause the main-burner to distinguish as a fail safe.

Recommendations:- De-scale the heater, with a commercial descaler. Thoroughly flush the System. Then re-fill with required Amount Of Commisioning Fluid. i.e Fernox Or Sentinel et,c.

Also get the Fan/flue checked out for correct running speeds.

Hi mitalee1
All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this. If you can get to the top of the pilot light it may help to give that a blow out too.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. Just follow the screw configurations *** you go. I asm not familiar with that type of heater so thats about the best I can do. Regards Bryan

SOURCE: how do i install a thermal coupler for forced air heater gas

Thermo coupler is held in place with a clamp bracket at the pilot end and a small brass line nut on the other end going into the gas valve.The pilot flame must surround the sensing bu or wrap itself around it Press the pilot button for a few seconds and fire up the pilot flame. Wait a few more minutes and turn the gas vale on for the main burners. If it fires, your set.Good Luck,Ned

Gas fireplace manuals


There are two things that control flame height gas volume and air volume. Some fireplaces have a flame control knob on the gas valvd to adjust flame height. Air volume is controlled by an air shutter usually located where the main gas orifice enters the burner. There is usually a small cover that will need to be removed to access the shutter. Closing the shutter will cause the flames to become taller and more yellow colored. Closing the shutter too far will cause sooting problems so great care should be taken in adjusting this shutter.As a rule, L.P. gas fireplaces do not have as high of a flame as natural gas unit do.
Hope this helps

Pilot light too big, how do we adjust pilot light on a Vanguard KV1800?


There is no adjustment for a Pilot Flame's Length on a Vent-free Gas Appliance. However, if you're using Natural Gas and it's a Natural Gas Heater, the normal length of the pilot flame is 2 to 2 1/2".
If it's a Propane Gas Heater and the pilot flame is as long as previously stated, you probably have a pressure problem from your tank. Contact your Propane provider to have them check the pressure on their tank regulator.

My flame is above the guard on the heater in the middle flame. How do I adjust the flame to be lower?


this is happening because the bricks need cleaning. I imagine the flame is burning blue instead of glowing red in the middle brick. Contact your local propane or natural gas dealer about getting the heater cleaned. This type of problem causes a huge loss of efficiency and could be dangerous.

The pilot light goes out randomly. Why? Can the flame size be increased? I don't know that that is the problem but am wondering if there is some adjustment that can be made to keep the flame burning....


I'm not aware of flame adjustment. However, if it has a thermocouple make sure it is tight in the gas valve or the thermocouple may be bad. The flame heats the thermocople and this generates a milivolt charge that has an electro-magnetic force that holds the pilot valve open. Also check for a blocked flue.

What colour should your gas heater flame be


Hello,
It should be blue. If it's got orange tips, it's burning dust, If it's got yellow flames or tips, it may need the air shutter adjusted, regulator pressure adjusted, the vent unblocked or just a real good cleaning. Douglas

Hayward H400FDN won't stay lit


It is probably not sensing flame. You either have a clogged orifice underneath the flame sensor and you probably need to have the gas pressure assessed, meter size and gas valve pressure adjustment. These heaters need 2" wc of gas pressure.

Flame Adjustment


Make sure the unit is operating on the correct gas, Natural or Propane (LP). The sound you are experiencing is either not enough gas and the flame is burning inside the burner port(s) or too much gas and the flame is much larger than it has to be. At any rate, get a technician to check the gas pressure entering into the home. NOW!
