    I have a diesel eberspatcher (spellin) and it works very well apart from being noisy. Anyway I am sure its not a fault but am curious as to what the "clicking" sound is ? seems to click most when it reaches temp, but could be wrong and it could do it all the time. ???

    Its the diaphragm pump that supplies the fuel to the unit, it looks a little like a gas regulator and is in the fuel line, it has twin wires to it.

    It could be anywhere in the supply line, the noise is normal.

    Clicking is generally the igniter sparking but I am no expert, if its working ok, leave it alone!

    Dougs GOT the right answer!!

    its a ten minute fix, if running on fuel hardly noticable but if on mains louder knocking took mine to eberspaher in guildford fixed it in ten mins with a cable tidy now silent.

    no charge either.
