Radiator problem


Postby lerndiy » Mon Aug 27, 2007 11:21 am

I need some help, does anybody know what happen with my radiator?. I just took it offf and I put it back and my problem is the water did not go in for some reason and I think the radiator is still empty. I realized that a I have another three readiator in the first floor empty as well (I have a combi boiler WORCESTER-24i)
Thank for any suggestions in advance,
Wilbert

*Actually the radiator wich I took off is in the ground floor.

Thank you very much for your answear.

Yes, I think you are right, about the pressurised system


whats the pressure gauge reading, on the boiler ?

The presure gauge reading has two hands. One of them is a red one wich is on 1.5 (one and a half), the other one is a grey one and it is in 0 (zero).
The gauge reading is from 0 to 4 (zero to four)

Did you vent the radiators, downstairs and upstairs ?
Yes, I did it. I have three downstairs and two of them are okay (when I open them some water comes inmediately). The one what I took off is in the living room and that one is as same as the others wich are upstairs. I did vent them I there is not any water from them.

Thank you really very much for your time,

Wilbert

The problem is there's no pressure in the system, the grey hand on the pressure gauge. Shows how much pressure is in the sytsem, and as you've said it's on 0.

Re- pressurise system and all should work ok.
