That sounds likely.

Its possible/probably that the diverter valve is specially configured for your boiler.

In that case Parts Center would be a good supplier to try first.

It may have just jammed and you could try to check that first.

change the whole assy.

as tony says, valve is special to your boiler. got a socket on the wires etc, to plug onto pcb .

I think that there may be a repair kit with a capsule to replace the moving parts inside the body. Others can confirm.

Even if there is then it is often not such an easy DIY job to replace it as it requires cleaning and lubricating.

And no professional would do it for the same reason AND because of the continuing liability for the repair.
