Pex tubing not warming up

Hi we just installed a closed gas boiler water baseboard heating system. We have three zones basement main floor upstairs. Our house was not getting warm enough so we added more baseboard heating to the basement. Since we did that the pex tubing in the basement hasn't heated back up. It's only warm right at the beginning of the tubing by the boiler. Before we installed the new baseboard it worked fine.

Only the basement zone not heating? Upstairs fine?

Is only the basement got the radiant? Rest of the home is what... fin - tube baseboard?

You added baseboard to the basement in what way? How was it piped into that zone?

Can you show us pictures? or better yet an accurate piping diagram...

After the heat was added was that zone bled of air. You must remove the air so the water will circulate.
