    Was it...

    well bled?  I know it sounds obvious, but the loop worked before.  Unless he pinched the pipe, or left something in it, some old crud broke loose and made its way to the circulator.

    If you can, I would isolate and bleed the zone again, circulator off.  If it gets warm, then you can eliminate that and check the circ, wiring, and controls (t-stat)
