My radiators are getting warm when running hot water?

Am I right to think the diverter valve has/is failing?

Will it mater if I leave it like this till I can get the part?

Yeah its a combi boiler (Alpha CD24C).

Most rads just get warm but the bathroom towel rad gets hot the quickest and running a bath is only really when the hot tap is run for an extended time so warms the towel nicely lol.

Mine has been like this for ages, at some point Im going to get around to draining down the boiler again and fettling the diverter valve again.

Don't worry, be happy....
