Hi there
We've had a Worcester since last Easter and we have melted two heater vents already, does any other Worcester owner have a problem with the bottom heater vent melting? - we've changed ours twice already!

I've had a quick look at ours and there is no sign of melting at all. We used them full blast last Winter but haven' t this Winter. I think we would have noticed if there had been a problem. I' ve not seen it mentioned by anyone else either. allthumbz shiver

Many thanks for your reply.

Ours has proper melted so there could be an issue, I had intended to mention it at the first service due in March and now I certainly will.

Kind regards
Philip

Email them now and send them a photo. That way they can contact Auto Sleepers beforehand and hopefully have a solution ready for when you take it in for its service. It saves journeys.
Probably telling Grannies how to suck eggs but thought it worth suggesting

Worcester heating vents melting Empty Worcester cooker door rattling.

Post by groundhog on Wed Jan 23, 2013 12:16 pm

I'm here... I'm here

Our cooker squeaked, rattled and every bump open it came. Went back to A/S who actually made it worse, Marquis supplied a catch which would have stopped it coming open but not stopped the squeaking and rattling......now however it is silent, here is how!

First the door could be lifted on its hinges by about an inch, took it off and cut two spacers from a rawplug ( not a plastic one!!!) put them between the brackets and stopped it lifting, you could equally use washers, but get the hinges really tight.

Second the spring catch in the door wasn't tight in its mounting, it is only pushed in, so I removed it and fixed it back in with Araldite so it couldn't move. Door now stays shut and doesn't rattle at all.

Above the door is a little pull out piece that stops the heat reaching the controls, it also rattled on the frame. I pulled it slightly out and again used Araldite to fix it in position, no more rattles from that now either.

Like Jan and Dick we wrap the shelves ( we use non slip material) but also put pegs on the shelves to attach them to the runners - don't forget to take them out!

No noise from the cooker at all now.... on the subject of rattles

The steel sheet which protects the seat from the boiler only had a few screws in it, just put some more in and that shut that up, also we found the table where it stows away can move in its mounting so either bubble wrap or a simple turn clip.

I think I can genuinely say I have now eliminated 90% of all the rattles, we threw away the stupid crockery and racks and now use Correlle crockery ( I can get it in Canada much cheaper than UK if you want any) brilliant stuff.

Still got one little blighter of a rattle above the passenger side but have a feeling it might be the awning, I will get him though!

Agree with Jan, we went all round the Alps last year and the power is great, very smooth and hugely comfortable van for two to live in, really love it despite the few annoying faults we have had. Would add Marquis have been first class in fixing the ones I couldn't.

Good luck with the cooker! up!
