Radiator not working

Posted by Gary , on
The radiator is brand new. And I've moved it from one side of room to other. There is water in pipes and radiator but it won't get hot. The hot water only goes as far as the old pipe/new pipe connector but no further. It's a back boiler on a gravity fed system. There are 4 other radiators up stairs 3 of which are boiling hot. The other is luke warm. I've taken this one off and flushed it but alas no difference

Good evening Gary, i Have read your comments and my recommendation would be to close the radiators that are very warm which should force heat downstairs to the offending radiator. should you need any further explanation feel free to call as my advice is free. sourceenerngy
