just replaced existing intel cpu heatsink with the above.

Sounds like it may be faulty, unless its speed is variable right down to zero and it is not asking for any fan assistance at present. You could try running the machine for a few minutes just to let the heat sink warm up and see if the fan then starts, but be careful not to let things get too warm before you switch off again.
