@ January 4, 2013 12:10 PM in noisy gas valve

I too am having a noisy valve like someone hitting a pipe with a hammer...when the boiler fires up.  Its in a plastic insulated boiler cabinet....only happens when it calls for heat sometimes... did you get any resolution?

boiler for radiant heat solenoid banging noise in the boiler cabinet

@ January 4, 2013 11:22 AM in boiler for radiant heat solenoid banging noise in the boiler cabinet

Hi...

I have a radiant heat flooring system, and notice every once in a while while the thermostat calls for heat, I can hear the boiler exhaust vent begin and within the plastic insulated boiler cabinet i hear this loud bang every so often when call for heat.
i took the green plastic cover off the boiler and there appears to be this solenoid control valve that pops and makes a loud bang...loud like a gunshot bang.
I saw a blast of air come out of it once when i timed it right for inspection and the air blast seems to come from a solnoid or valve control.

my question is what causes the bang noise? and how can i eliminate it or reduce the noise?  It can wake you up in the middle of the nite while sleeping.
thanks

Steve
