Radiator not heating up help


Postby jamezno1 » Mon Sep 27, 2010 9:42 am

Was wondering if anyone could help, recently took the kitchen radiator off and flushed out, refitted but still not getting a lot of heat from it next to none, now the radiator in the living room is not heating up.

Any info much appreciated

Vent all radiators, make sure radiator valves are open. Turn off all radiators apart from the 2 you're having problems with and turn heating on.

Have tried venting all the radiators there is no air in the system, have also tried closing all inlet valves apart from the one in the living room and it still doesn't seem to want to heat up, have read that it could be a balancing problem not sure. Is this an easy procedure to carry out or could it be something else, very confused with this
