Steam Radiator Valve and heat issue
Steam radiator is not giving off heat. I changed the air vent. Made sure the valve is open, but it appears that when I turn the nozzle on the the valve it keeps turning as if it is stripped. So maybe it not even open. Can someone provide instructions on how to replace the valve. I also am going to replace the main vent, I take it that this is fairly simple with just unscrewing the vent. I am going to bring the main vent to the plumbing supply house to buy the correct one, so while the system is turned off is it necessary to cover the main vent hole. Thanks!
