If the CWST is full and any isol valves on the supply are open then if water doesn't flow out the top of the cylinder surely it can only be a airlock between the CWST outlet and the hot water cylinder?

Turn the pump off and open the nearest hot tap to the cylinder, It should gravity flow.

Perhaps it should but mine (vented cylinder) on the very rare occasions that its been drained has to be primed in the bathroom by opening the hot and cold taps and blocking the mixer outlet, I am lucky in that I have mains at the cold tap, the air lock is somewhere in the hot pipework.
