Hello,

So I read through the FAQ but couldn't find a solution. Apologise if this has already been covered.

Basically, had a new towel radiator added. Now most of the others either don't warm up, or are luke warm at best. I've tried balancing the system by turning all the lock shields and thermostats off, and turning (what I think is the furthest away from the boiler) and trying to work back.

Bit of info:

Combi boiler in the loft
Hot water works
Towel radiator, and 4 others upstairs
3 radiators downstairs
Worked perfectly before
Boiler is just over a year old
Tried calling a few people out but all the plumbers I know have a waiting list of 3 weeks.

Can give more info if needed.

It's getting pretty cold in here!

Thanks!

Mc

most of the others

have you turned your latest addition completely off?

Next turn off ALL the hot ones. Completely off. Do any of the cool ones now warm up?

Yup, have turned the new one off at Lockshield and TVR.

I turned every radiator off, and turned (what I think is the furthest away) and it warmed up a bit
