Re: Radiator valve reducing temperature

Quote:
Can you place a picture of your knob?


Quote:
If you do a circumcision (remove the knob) on the valve, you can use a screwdriver or whatever to fully press down the metal pin, this should seal of the flow, if not than the valve is defunct. If yes than the problem is in the know, if they are old they might have worn off some failing to close of the flow completely (just like in real life)
a circumcision = remove the knob. Nope. But let's not get too clinical.

OP: You should not turn it off completely but set it on "anti-freeze". It will turn cold as well eventually. That's how it is with the only radiator I have in the downstairs room of my flat.
