Radiator won't turn off

Hello,
My radiator will not turn off. The valve is all the way in the off position (I've turned it all the way and tightened it), but the radiator keeps going for hours--not like it's just in the process of shutting off. It stays on all the time and is extremely loud--constant whistling, occasional banging.
How can I turn it off and/or reduce the noise? I am in an apartment building and don't have access to anything other than the radiators, and the super has already looked at it and done absolutely nothing.
Thank you!

You really don't have any other choice than to pursue building management in order to get the issue fixed. I'm sure there must be an 'agency' where you live that deals with disputes of this sort between tenant / landlord.

If you try to fix it yourself, you end up putting yourself in a very bad position... liability, etc...
