                          does it warm up at all?

                          so its a cylinder/water tank system?

                          where abouts is the rad in relation to the cylinder? far close?

                              like paul said it does sound like the rad is full of **** or the flow is blocked,unless someone has turned the valve down or off,if the rad is blocked theres a chance that the other 11 are the same if they were installed at the same time.

                              you can either get someone in who may well charge you £300 plus for 2 hours work or turn your water off,individually take off your rads or even just the faulty one,remove both valves and stick a hose pipe/pressure washer in one end and blow the **** out yourself,will be a boring job but will improve your system and save a few quid too
