Open the damn flow valve. LoL.

If nothing happens craxck open the bleed valve to ensure it isn't full of air.

If nothing happens check the lock shield valve isn't closed. If that doesn't change things reset it to where you found it otherwise your system balance will be on the bonk.

Oh we are talking about a central heating rad and not an electic rad are we?

Open both valves, if a TRV set to higher numbers *is a frost setting.

If still not working, try bleeding, remove TRV head and press pin a few times.
