One Cold Radiator on 1st floor

Dear DIY Doc

I have one cold radiator on the first floor of a three floors house. I have had my boiler fixed by British Gas recently and everything was fine for a while.

I know it has nothing to do with the temperature of the room as it is freezing all the time!!

Please could you kindly let me know what may be the problem?

Thank you ever so much!

Try bleeding the radiator, you could also try turning other radiators down abit and turn pump speed up if possible.

Is this the only radiator on the third floor ?

Any work been carried out lately - new radiators or heating system drained ?
