Noise coming from Gas Water Heater

Just noticed it today. Almost like a vibrating noise. Im not sure what the cause of it is. Looking for some ideas? See the video for the noise.

That's a forced air chimney and I'm almost certain the noise is coming from the blower. It's either out of balance or there's something stuck in there.

Welcome to the forums.

Esand1 is correct. That is called a draft inducer blower and is used to exhaust the burned gases out the flue. It could have something in it or it could need replacement.
