your refer cooling coils are like your cardiovascular. when the boiler chamber gets over 210 degrees( from lack of venting or out of level), sodium chromate can crystalize in the siphon tube(think old school coffee pot). this can block completely or form a layer like hardening of the arteries. when the latter occurs, then you take longer to cool down. you may have had a bubble or you may have restriction in the siphon tube now...
