Question about Heaters
For the past three years, ever since my friend helped me bleed my radiators, wrongly I suspect, heat only comes out of the top 1/4 of the radiator in three of the radiators in my home. They are gas heat. I've tried bleeding them again to no avail. It's VERY frustrating(and cold!!). Can anyone please help me?
Thanks so much.
Not sure that I can help but will give it a go for you. I have never heard of bleeding Gas Heaters and usually they don't need that. Work on one heater at a time. If you can blow compressed air through the lines this may clear the flow. Best way is if you can get to the gas lines by removing a cover and then remove the gas line as close to the gas source. Gas heaters tend to carbon up and the air pressure tends to clear them. If you can't get to the gas lines you can try blowing the air back through the main jet at the front of the heater. Sounds to me like the jets are partially clogged and just need to be cleared. If you manage to remove the main pipe make sure you tighten it back up to avoid any gas leaks. Before trying to light it check for gas leaks as well. Hope this helps
