    Yes had that. It was the jet needed cleaning. You should hear a slight roar from a clean jet. If the jet is partially blocked it is usually quieter.

    Another vote as per @jezport .

    Had the same problem on my my last m/h. Cleaning the jet, and the flue, of soot cured the problem.(y)

    And here too.

    @Techno had the same problem too at Misterton, ie, dirty jet.

    Cheers,

    Jock. :)

    All they do at a hab service is to make sure things are working, not necessarily working efficiently !!!

    Agree with others, probably a new jet required. Fridges should be serviced every 2 to 3 years, but in reality most people wait until something goes wrong.
