    Hi Can any one tell me why an Ideal Icos HE15 boiler that is 18 months old,
    would suddenly start making a loud and vibrating noise, when the boiler
    fires up from a cold start. The noise and vibration last for about 20
    seconds and then stops. Would appreciate any help Thanks.

    Could be excess fuel at startup making one hell of a fire. Get it checked
    out.

    Is the boiler oil fired or gas ?

    If oil,
    Could also be not getting enough oil when starting due to a plugged oil
    filter.

    Have you changed it since the burner was installed ?

    If a new one still gives the same problems, call a serviceman in.

    (they should be changed every year anyway)


    If it's gas fired, shut it off quick and call the serviceman

    No one on usenet can offer you a guaranteed fix without seeing this.

    Either way, but my answer is that NO ONE can tell over the internet and you
    need to call a pro to look at it....

    Hi, we have had an ideal boiler fitted today and it sounds like we hav
    the same problem. The whole system vibrates and it sounds like a
    aeroplane taking off! This has happened a few times and then th
    boiler cut out. We have had the men who fixed it out and they don'
    know what it is doing it. Sorry that I am not helping you but would yo
    be able to help me by telling me what the problem is if you get i
    sorted? I am really worried about mine. Thanks very much
