Hi, would be grateful for any advice on a vertical radiator. It remains warm just along the bottom. There is a water rush when the heating goes on was professionally installed 2 years ago and worked fine last winter. Cant see any way of bleeding the radiator have taken a photo at the top of the radiator that may have something to do with bleeding the radiator? Any possible ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Yup, that's the bleed screw. Bleed key and loosen, keep open till all air is out, close again (not too tight), job's a guddun'
Photo is not clear.
But, you should need either a vent key or a flat blade screwdriver.
Blimey, fast replies ever. I didn't think it was right size. Just popped the vent key in and jobs a good one..thanks very much..
