Thanks for writing. Sounds like what I found. I figured out that the outside air damper for the heater was snapping up and down. I reached in underneath the incoming air filter and pulled the damper out. The heater works mostly o:k but not quite right without it. BUT the disturbing noise is gone. - Sherwin
