half radiator cold

Postby macker » Sun Nov 16, 2008 1:21 pm

I've been trying to bleed the radiator in the bathroom which gets hot on the bottom half but stays cold on the top half. There's no sound of air gushing out when I open the valve and no water comes out. Should I give the key a few turns to open it more?
