Hi, I have a radiator in my kitchen that only gets hot when I turn the valves down on a couple of the other radiators, what causes this and can it be solved?

Its a balancing issue - water takes the easiest route around a heating circuit so closing other rads down forces hot water where it doesn't normally want to go.
There will be advice in the FAQ's, but turn the lockshield valves on the warm rads off, and then back on 3/4 to 1 turn and go from there.
