Banging Noises from Boiler
Diagnose Banging, Clankink, Kettling and Knocking Noises from Your Boiler
Banging Noises Coming from Your Boiler or Pipes
A banging noise coming from your boiler is usually due to overheating which can be caused by a variety of issues.
1. A Boiler Thermostat. Is your thermostat operational first of all. Often, we can go to a job and it is something very simple like having no batteries in the Room Thermostat.
Is the boiler thermostat in a place where the temperature reading will be affected like near an open window or door or where the air flow is causing a draft.
If the boiler thermostat is faulty, then you can switch your boiler off while still allowing the water to flow through the boiler in order to cool it down.
Once you boiler has cooled down again, try activating the thermostat again to see if it behaves normally. This should click on again and adjust to the set temperature.
If it does not do this, then you should call out a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer to investigate the problem further.
2. No Water In The System
If there is no water flowing through the boiler, then it will very quickly overheat.
First check that the water is turned on okay and if not then turn the water on.
If it is winter time, check that pipes have not frozen or valves have iced over.
If you have tested the water is on and flowing and there in still no water in the system, you should switch off the boiler and open valves to allow water to flow freely into the system. If you have a combi boiler, this will be your filling loop valve. If you have a traditional boiler, check the water tank in the loft to ensure that the valve is not stuck or that the float valve is able to move easily.
If you are still having problems which you are unable to resolve yourself, you should call in a professional Local Boiler Engineer in East Kilbride by giving us a call 24 hours a day, every day on (01355) 202656.

Thank you guys for doing a great job. I was panicking so much when we came home to the flooding that I didn’t know what to do. Your plumber, Martin was exceptionally helpful not only in stopping any further damage and preventing the water leak but he was also able to remove a lot of the water with some sort of re-direction of the pipe system. That’s when we knew that we had a professional at hand.
We can’t thank you enough and my 6 year old son now wants to be a plumber too so that he can help other people. I’ll let him know where to get his training!

1st Plumbers East Kilbride repaired our boiler a few years ago and have now serviced our boiler every year since. Glad to say that it is still going strong.
