Trapped air can be hard to get out sometimes. Try to keep bleeding. How did air get into the system? Do you have auto air bleeds ?

On the ones that aren't heating. Did you bleed until you got water out. or did they stop leaving air out and you still had no water coming out.

Thanks for the help. All of the finn tubes had air in them. I bled them all and only two of the 4 have hot water coming out the others just cold water sprays out. I guess I'll try bleedind some more, after that No Clue.

There may be air pockets in the piping. You may have to purge the pipes.

Post pics of the piping at the boiler.

What is the best way to purge the pipes. I have drained the return line at the boiler.
