    Hi all,

    my recently installed boiler; less than a year old, has started making a vibrating/buzzing noise, it lasts between 3 to 10-15 sec then stops, there are no errors showing on the display. I can also hear a slight water trickle sound if I put my ear to the case.

    Ok History, I had this installed almost a year ago, and in the first few weeks I discovered one of the rads had a leak, and the bedroom rad made constant trickle noises, I contacted the installer who promptly ignored my call and txt.

    I have moderate technical knowledge so I sorted the leaking rad myself; this damaged the carpet; small rust spot from the drips and blew my paint from the skirting - i.e. it peeled off in a sheet. The other issue I have not been able to rectify even though I have bled the rad.

    Oh forgot to add I have those vertical rads like these: Vertical Radiators

    Went on the Worcester Bosch website and had a look at the FAQ's watched a video on frozen condesation pipes here

    Sorted the buzzing vibrating noises; blocked/frozen condensation pipe, there is quite a long run to the gutter i'd say about 12ft and there was no lagging on the pipes so obviously with this artic farce happening it froze.

    I have the condensation hose running into a piece of pipe and into the bath at the moment so that gets me my heating and hot water back.

    I am going to replace the pipe because I have no way of telling where the frozen bits are and it could take a while to thaw it out, by then its night and the temps drop again. I can't take the pipe to pieces because it is soldered, not sure if I can fit push-fit joints or if I need to replace with soldered joints again and then lag properly.

    I will eventually change the bathroom to a shower room so maybe i can run the pipe inside to merge with the outflow of the sink.

    Update: Got pipes thawed and lagged but I'm keeping one eye on it.
