Low flying aircraft in my boiler!


I have an old Glow Worm Economy boiler. Approx every 65_70 secs there is a noise that sounds like a low flying plane! I have to bleed my radiators fairly regularly. What can it be!

Thanks

Low flying aircraft in my boiler!


I am only posting a idea on this one. I have heard flames make many strange noises when the air/mixture is wrong. A flame can whistle, or rumble I wouldd guess if it is connected to the having to bleed the system that it would be a lean flame? they tend to run at higher temps that could break up the water near the surface. I hope this may give you a idea. What does the flame look like and what type of fuel is it using?
