CH not coming on all the time

Hi, our house has a quite old classic LX system boiler with a separate HW tank, the CH is set to come on in the morning for just an hour of so and does but during the day if it’s cold or I haven’t lit the wood burner I turn the thermostat up but it don’t always come on, I boosted the HW the other day and the boiler instantly fired up. I have recently been tweaking the HW settings so it only comes on twice a day as opposed to being on all the time, could this be the issue? Does the CH rely on the water in the tank being hot?

It certainly shouldn't. However if wired incorrectly anything is possible.

If it worked properly before, then a failed microswitch in a zone valve is likely, or the programmer / room thermostat has an intermittent problem.
