    I have a Baxi Solo 15HE boiler that is just under 1 year old. When the heating is turned on from cold, after about 5 minutes the bolier begins to whistle for 2-3 minutes and will then go quiet again(still with the bolier running). This starting happening all of a sudden but doen't seem to be getting any worse - its just annoying when it does it every time the boiler is started.

    The boiler doesn't whistle when the heating AND hot water is on - if you run both together for 5 mins and then turn off the hot water, the whistling noise will happen.

    I've had the people who installed the bolier out to it and can't find a problem - so have contacted Baxi.

    I just wondered if anyone had any ideas as to what it could be?

    Sounds that come from that area are more often due to muck in the heat exchanger, even if its only a year old, I bet the noise was not their on day one,
