The Tank › Water Heater Making A Banging Noise
- June 7, 2016 at 10:41 pm #23075MelodigrandParticipant
My newly installed water heater started to make the banging noise after probably two months of being installed. It seems it only happens after somebody takes a shower but not every time somebody takes a shower. I had a chance to make a video of it but I could not attach it. Here is the link for the video to be viewed.
Any idea what it is and how this can be fixed?
PS: There is a lot of noise in that video but the one I am referring is the loudest one and the video shakes a little.June 9, 2016 at 2:48 pm #23084Larry WeingartenParticipant
Hello: I watched your video a few times. It’s like nothing I’ve heard a heater make. I’ll suggest you get a pressure gauge than can be screwed onto the water heater drain valve. If we see fluctuations in pressure when the noise happens, we can begin to understand the connection. 😎

Thank you for response. My plumber talked with Whirlpool and they sent me a new burner which he exchanged. We will see if that solves the problem.
