To make a long post short.

One radiator (in a bedroom) in my home, is making absurdly loud noises. Like a car backfiring.

Adjusting the valve has no effect on either the heat nor the noise.

It wakes me up, 5-6 times over the course of the night.

Half of the house as well, serviced by one of the other radiators has no heat.

I contacted the landlord on this a few times over a month ago.
I have taken video, I have provided pictures of some of the other faults that this has created.

What should I do?

Do you have one or two pipes connected to the radiators?

These ones all have one pipe, there are heat pipes throughout the house going upstairs... some of which have heat and bang, some of which have heat and dont bang, and some which have no heat at all.

Sorry the first post is not very clear, or reads properly- I wrote it short of sleep. I'll give the landlord until tomorrow to get back to me, after that I will call 311.
