Embassy Industries Onex Combination Boiler - OX160C

I Have 1 zone in my home and I'm having heating issues with my bedrooms. The heat works in the Living Room & Den but the pipes are cold in the 3 bedrooms and wont allow heat to pass through. Shower and faucet on the same floor as the bedroom work fine. Any clue at what this could be? This only came to light the last 2 days.

    2nd floor bedrooms, yes?
    what's the boiler pressure?
    you need enough pressure to keep water upstairs, like 12 - 15 psi,
    if pressure is low, you're likely air locked up there, and need bleeding, or purging, or both,
    pictures at the boiler, and of the upstairs radiation, and we can go from there.

    My PSI has been acting up the last few months but it loves reaching 30. PSI never drops below 20. I just bleed all the water from my house and the boiler. reintroduced new water into the home. Same problem.

    Sounds like your expansion tank is water logged and when you drained the system you possibly air locked the upper floor.

    Where you having problems with no heat upstairs before you drained it?

    Depends on how your system is piped. Do you have baseboard, cast iron radiators, heated floors?
