Assuming that the engine is running normally, I would check that you don't have an airlock in the supply to/from the engine calorifier pipe work- removing the supply TO calorifier pipe and bleeding it may work. The other, less likely option, is that there is a blockage in the pipe work preventing circulation to the calorifier, such as some corrosion/sludge in the pipe work, a collapsed hose or a too tight clip which has restricted flow. Removing the pipe work may enable you to check it is ok (attach to a hosepipe and flush through the pipe work to and from the engine, then connect back full of fluid to the engine, and start up).
Let us know how you get on.
