Downstairs living room radiator not heating up properly


Postby Ali222 » Wed Nov 28, 2007 5:42 pm

Hi Experts,

I have a combi boiler upstairs and all my radiators are working ok except the downstairs living room one. I have replaced it with a brand new double radiator today, and it is still not heating properly, just lukewarm like the old one. It also feels a lot cooler at the bottom. Any ideas what the problem could be?
thank you

yes it was the balancing. It took a bit of trial and error but now all the rads are red hot whereas they were just warm before too. Even my hot water is hotter now!
thanks for your help
