    "If the boilers working fine and theres no fault as such displayed on the boiler then it might not be all bad news. However, if the boilers playing up and the noise is quite loud then it could be the bearings in the pump, fan, etc, best to get it checked by a gas safe engineer."

    "It could be one of two things that's making a buzzing noise from your boiler!, It will be the fan or the pump! So don't panic and I would look to book a service soon, I would suggest informing the Engineer when booking the service, Cheers James."

    "It could be a number of things if I'm honest. Do you have any boiler details"

    "There are a number of possibilities depending on the type of boiler. Is the boiler a combi boiler? Is the boiler fan flued or balance flued (balanced flue is the large square flue of the outside)

    If the boiler is fan flued I would suggest it is the fan that is causing the noise"

    "This could be because the bearings in the pump are worn, fan speed is not correct or the burner has issues.
    Hope this helps.

    "Any new or unusual noise coming from a boiler needs to be checked out by a gas safe registered engineer. It may not be anything serious but early intervention can save £££££ in the long-term. It is better to be safe than sorry."
