Angry The water is not circulating!!! (Hot Water Baseboard Heat)

Hi ALL!!!

My hot water baseboard heating system is not working... The boiler seems to work fine... the pressure is about 18psi.. temp about 190F.. it does kick on when you turn the thermostat on.
At first, i thought the system needed to be purged because i had additional baseboard put in during the summer. But i did that and STILL no luck!!! I have a TACO pump - i'm not sure how to tell if its working since it is VERY quiet!

The problem is that the hot water from the boiler does not circulate! The incoming pipe gets super hot and the outgoing one stays warm. The baseboards do NOT get warm!!!

BBBBRRRRRRR it's cold here.

Need more info. How many zones? How much baseboard was added? Where? How much additional piping was added, if any?

There are a number of threads on here about how to purge, if you would like to check your procedure against them. Might just need another purge.
