In Reply to: banging in my steam pipes... posted by Craig on December 18, 2006 at 10:40:34:
: I have what I've been told is a single pipe system. The boiler was approx. 70 years old and in need of replacement. A month ago we had the boiler replaced and now the pipes bang like someone is beating on them with a bat and one radiator on the first floor
: rarely/barely heats up and sounds like there is water in it. The bolier has an auto-feed on it and it seems like it is always more than full. The radiators always worked before and the pipes NEVER banged like this. the guy that installed the bioler seems at a loss. the bioler work that he did looks good though.
it sounds like the autofeed might be stuck or malfunctioning, if it is stuck, then the boiler will overfill, so i would replace the feed valve
: any help would be appreciated.
