QUESTION FROM Mark W

The gas valve on my home heating hot water system starts making a loud fast chattering sound. The valve is on and the boiler is heating but it starts a few seconds after it lights.The aquastat turns on power for the burner thru a power vent then to the gas valve.to me it seems like a poor connection but I'm not sure where to look.I had a heating contractor check it but of course then it didn't do it.

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Mark W:

A gas valve that chatters from time to time is probably on its last legs, and should therefore be replaced. Other than the valve itself going bad, the other cause could be the transformer for the valve not putting out sufficient voltage.

Hope this is helpful.
