Noisy boiler

Hi,

Can someone please help, we have a combi boiler very old 20yr+ VRT-OTA, VC/VCW Vailliant - not sure if this name is correct.

It has started making a loud noise as though a motor is running inside but is struggling??

Someone has suggested the boiler may need filling with water from the top?

Would much appreciate some help.

Thanks
Rebecca

This is predominately a North American based site and that boiler is a UK product. I looked up the manufacturer...... Valiant is a trade name. There would be an actual model number for that combi boiler.

That system should be running on an autofill system and you shouldn't have to add any water. I see that unit has an internal circulator pump. That pump may be what's making that noise.

Thanks Pete, Yes the noise sounds like a motor/pump struggling, hopefully it can be fixed.
