Simply Build It

Sounds like it's overheating, and the pressure relief valve could be releasing the excess pressure to outside.

Have you noticed the Pressure relief discharge pipe releasing any water ?

Is the boiler auto-air vent open, all radiators heat to the top ?(no air in system)

Get a heating engineer out to repair. Could be a faulty thermostat or sensor.
