    Hello, we had one of those fancy upright radiators fitted a few weeks ago, and today the radiator and pipes around it started rattling and radiator is wobbling when heating is on. System is a combination boiler. It has two valves on radiator, same as towel radiators have. Please help!!

    Is there a thermostatic valve on the radiator? ( has numbers on it, usually 1-5 )

    If there is, it could be faulty, causing chattering
