Hi, I have a rad that is cold at top and hot at bottom. Valves are open , but no air is coming out when bleeding .Valves both work...... Any ideas.

The rad may be sludged-up.

You could try turning on the central heating, and shutting down/turning off all the rads except for the problem one

This will force water through the problem rad, then bleed all rads afterwards - worth a try...........
