Burnham "Carefree" boiler noise

Two years ago in the coldest part of winter our electric boiler died. We were without heat for 10 days. The old boiler was replaced with a Burnham Carefree boiler. We had leaks for about 6 weeks. Last year and again this year we have had a vibration that is transmitted through the pipes and gets louder the longer the boiler runs. We did not have this problem with the old boiler. What is happening and how can the vibration be fixed?

Carefree Noise

Well I am the new owner of an older version of the Carefree and I hear some ticking when the baseboards are heating up but i think that is normal with hydronic heat. I think what you may be experiencing as far as the leaks maybe do to your Carefree boiler holding a higher PSI as far as the vibrations it could also be the PSI or if you have a new circulator it could be pushing at a higher rate than your old. This might not necessarily be a problem there are product additives for hydronic boilers to stop pinhole leaks and stopping the vibrations could be fixed by strapping down your pipes a little better (if needed). My question to you is what are your settings... I bought an as is estate sale property with no instructions on how to use the boiler... I placed some of the parts and now trying to adjust the settings High, Low and differential just right but I have no baseline to go, by any ideas?
