Found 9th Nov 2010
Hi, wondered if i could ask for some advice.

Our central heating has gone dodgy again, downstairs radiators have not got hot for the last few days, upstairs were all getting hot, but now only 1 radiator is getting hot, boiler is running fine,

does any1 know what the problem maybe, was only fixed around 2 months ago, wondered if theres maybe a quick fix before i call the landlord !!

Have all the radiators been properly bled?

Air block, ensure water pressure is kept up at the boiler while bleeding the radiators or you'll introduce another air block.

Yeah bleeding should do the trick.

thats what i would suggest also ............ooh poor you, not good time to discover dodgy heating eh !! as probably like you its 'bloomin freezing here' coldest november i can recall !!........good luck hope you get it sorted

I don't think it's that cold,whereabouts in the country are you shops?

you"ve got air bags in,there should be a valv on top of each radiator
unscrew it till start leaking
the boiler should work at the time which u unscrew the valv

Wirral, Merseyside, debz...........its been freezing here today really icy cold winds , maybe the fact we live by the beach has something to do with it

Yeah,i agree,that wind today was strong.

It's been fairly mild in Manc though,i didn't even have any heating on at all last week.

Really I think it's been one of the mildest, around bonfire night time has been really really cold in the past few years this year it was not too cold at all.

OP are the rads completely cold,or warm in places,like the top or bottom ?

What was the problem that was fixed before, agree it sounds like an airlock but they usually end up in the higher rads not the lower ones.

Upstairs all warm both top and bottom of each apart from 1 which is hot

Downstairs living room is slightly warm all over but hallway cold, apart from bottom right side, around the pipe

No hot water or heating at all !!! think there was a water leak inside the boiler, they fixed that and if i remember right they bled radiators, flushed the pipes out too... i think anyway, i really should have paid more attention
