Without more info it's hard to say what it is.

Do the other radiators have TRV's fitted - my thinking is do they shut down when the rooms reach temperature ?

therefore the pump is pumping against the radiator valves on the problem radiator - which are closed. Have you tried opening the valves on that radiator does the cracking stop ??
