Old Steam Radiator No Heat~

hello, i have a older steam radiator system, the old cast iron type. the 3rd floor apt i get no heat to the two middle rediators in the system. no heat to the pipes going up to them either. i get heat fine in the first two and the last two on the system.when i took one of the two of them off at the valve, i got steam and heat right away, so im assuming that its the radiator itself. is there anyways to unblock these old cast iron beasts, or any other ideas? thanks in advance kenny

No heat from radiator

There may be an air vent clogged. If air can't get out, steam can't get in. Remove & clean or replace the air vents. They are inexpensive & usually easy to replace.
