    Hi all
    The fire in my van makes a racket when driving - I want to have a look and see if I can quieten it down.

    I think most of the noise if coming from the horizontal bars/fins or whatever there called...I want to take it off to have a look but have failed at the first hurdle...How do I get the front cover off??

    Not sure of the model but here is the actual heater I need to fix:

    Any help appreciated

    Model is Truma S3002, to remove the front SHOULD simply involve pulling the top away from the wall then lifting up off the lower location lugs, disconnect the wiring plug from the fan control and lift out the gas control knob then lift the front cover away. I say SHOULD in capitals because some converters fit them badly and then install screws under the top cover to hold it in place so check for them first.

    Take a look between the top louvre and the underside of the top cover - on ours there was a small screw which had to be removed.
    Took me more than a while (and a few choice words) to find it :mad:

    The way that I made one quieter a few years ago was to roll up some aluminium foil and wedge it between the electric element to stop it touching the casing.

    I took the front of mine off to change the battery in the automatic ignition no problem. Just a warning, putting it back on nearly resulted in me jumping up and down on it until a million pieces of debris lay at my feet. Hope you have more luck :mad:
