old rowhouse...I am not getting any heat from any radiator on ground floor or upstairs, in the bedrooms. so, I've purged the radiators by unscrewing the small needle and listening for the air flowing out. i expected water to begin flowing out, but nothing, on any floor. no more air comes out now.
I dont know if related, but the B&G (pump?), red, the size of a bread box contraption, located about 4 inches from the furnace, is now always operating -- even with the thermostat on coldest temp. To stop the "red contraption" i turned off the circuit breaker, as i could think of no other way. I assume no what is in do i correct this and/or What is wrong here? thank you much.

Thanks so much. from the site i learned that the B&G red thing is the circulator...I think i should lift the relief valve to let water into boiler, so as to allow water to fill the void caused by the purged air, in the radiators (?). Where is the relief valve? (it should allow water into the boiler?) the site also says to run the circulator, but how is this done? thanks again.
