    After suffering through two winters with absolutely no heat in our small house, we finally had a gas wall furnace installed last December. Despite enjoying the pleasure of warmth and not having to sleep with skiing attire, we do have a small issue: once the heater is turned down/off it is immediately followed by a "clunk clunk" sound, which eventually will die. Any suggestions what the cause could be?

    contraction of the heat exchanger possibly.

    Having a gas wall heater in my own house, I tend to agree on contracting noise, mine does the same thing when heat cycle ends.

    My house does the same thing. Piss poor installation. Mine has a heat sheild between the HX and outer cover. Installer did not leave room in mounting frame for expansion. Could be the model too, but have seen others that do not make noise. My model is a Williams, double wall.

    I have the same problems with a Williams, but I am convinced that this did not have the problem the first year that I lived here. There MUST be a solution, I hope.
