Radiator in loft room not working but other is?

Postby Adaldan » Sat Dec 26, 2020 3:18 pm

Hi everyone. I’ve got a radiator in the loft room which isn’t working. The one on the other side of the room is fine but the water doesn’t seem to be feeding into the the faulty one. I’ve tried checking the 2 inlets and they are both opening but the pipes leading in are not getting hot. Thanks in advance.

Hi adaldan
Most likely to be an air lock or could be system imbalance - try running the CH and turn off all other radiators in turn, start with the one that gets hottest first.
