I have Temtrol TM radiator thermostats and some are sticking. How do I take the plastic top off so I can tap the pin to free the wax?
Assistant: The Plumber's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.
Customer: how much for this answer?
Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: System was installed in 1987 but 2 valves have stopped working within the last 12 months
Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes - its just removing plastic covers and I've forgotten how
Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no

I do believe they just unscrew via a knurled ring Just under the head
