    Hate to say this, but it depends. Is it the last rad on the system that is not working or all of the? Did you use an adjustable vent on the rad and is it wide open? It the valve to the rad open all the way? Many conditions can cause this problem. If it is a remote rad or the last one, is the thermostat getting satisfied before the steam gets to the rad?
