Crackle noise from vent pipe

Recommended Posts

On my fully PID'd 2012 Classic when I get near to the end of my steaming routine I get a steamy crackle noise coming out of the vent pipe going into the drip tray.

Would I be right in thinking it may be a particle in the solenoid valve. The steam temp when it starts has dropped from 145C to about 130C.

Or am I being paranoid and it's supposed to do this.

As no one seemed to know what might be causing this, I did a back flush today and the noise has stopped.
