Hi peeps,

Can anyone help me ? One radiator isn’t getting hot and the boiler switches off, Ive checked the rad trvs they all good, rang potterton and grundfos they aren’t sure.
Was told everything in the extension was install 4 months ago. Anyone know what that problem might be ?

Cheers

What boiler do you have? Is it a sealed system?? Has it ever all worked??

You could have a blockage, does the trv pin move up and down freely, any air trapped inside, do the pipes get warm?, is the lock shield (opposite to trv) open?, has any work been carried out in this 3 weeks?

Was only there for half hour as I had to shoot over to another job, client couldn’t get hold of the original plumber, will be there tomorrow. Is it worth taking my powerflush gear with me ?

It might be worth it, although for x1 radiator it might not be. I would look at just the one radiator for now, unless you feel a need to power flush the system?

The rad not working is in the new extension?

If so get the daft [email protected] back.

Was told the previous plumber got all the gear from grant and stones and isn’t answering his phone. Do you reckon is a faulty radiator?
