I keep a can of Keystone No.1 penetrating oil in the shop and it usually works for me, a good soaking left overnight usually frees it up, sometimes a couple of good sharp raps with a ball peen on the end of the threaded member helps to break the bond after soaking.

I would be careful with high heat depending on the material of the vise frame, cast iron has a different coefficient of expansion than the steel threaded screw, too much heat will crack the iron, if it is forged or cast steel high heat might be what you need to break the bond.
