    It is a radiant baseboard panel. There are no convection air currents involved. I have come across it years ago when I worked at a Supply House for 2 years. There are 2 pipes (1/2" nominal) attached to a piece of metal. Those pipes take heater water at higher temperature (like up to 190°) the makes the metal get hot, then the heated metal cover offers radiant heat to the room. At the far end of the radiator, you can make a u-turn or continue to another radiator. Let me see if I can find some Specifications.

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    https://www.hydronicalternatives.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/12/Radiant-Panel-InstallationGuide.pdf Looks like on page 3 Table A indicates that the heater have about 200 BTU/Ft which is less that half that of Finned-tube Baseboard. So a room that might require 10 feet of regular baseboard, might need 25 feet of these baseboard panels as the same water temperature.

    hydronic alternative has some of that. There. We’re a number of brands imported years ago. We had issues with electrolysis on the copper to aluminum threads
