My 2155 does this too from time to time. Again, it is because the springs are not properly aligned. The way I fix this by sticking a pencil or pen in the valve and making sure the spring is in the center of the bottom valve cap. One thing that helps make sure that the spring remains aligned is make sure the valve section is level. With the tuba on its side, the bell makes the springs lean, so I either hang the bell off of the edge of a table or set the tuba on something to make it even(my music briefcase works great.) That normally takes care of any rattling of springs on my tuba. Hope this helps
