How to order replacement traps?

Hello I just had a pro out to upgrade the main venting and begin to get my system in better working order. One room in particular was not getting heat and was piped incorrectly. Now that the piping is fixed it’s getting some heat, but the convector is still not getting hot all the way across. If I take off the grate I can feel the trap and it’s ice cold on both sides, the valve seems to be hot on both sides. I’m guessing the trap may be stuck closed? I would like to learn how to maintain my system my system myself at least as much as I can. Is replacing a trap something I can do myself. How do I know what parts to order. It is a 2 pipe warren Webster system. I am including a picture of the vent housing. Thanks!
