Steam convector not getting hot
I'm having a problem with a wall convector on a steam system not getting hot. I'll post a picture of the unit but there isn't any obvious valves or steam traps that I can see and from what I've been reading that is usually what causes these to not work well. The unit is on the second floor of the house and is probably the furthest from the boiler. The house has a combination of radiators and wall convectors and it seems like the radiators get very hot and the wall convectors are so so. I have an IR thermometer / temp gun so I can see the incoming pipe is 190 degrees and the outgoing pipe is 65, so it sounds to me like the unit is "air bound" but I don't really know how to tackle that problem. I've replaced all the vents I found in the basement with Gordon #2's but it hasn't helped any.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
