Sounds like one of your motorised zone valves or the 3 port diverter valves , which ever you have fitted, has stuck open. When the valve is open the microswitches inside the motor housing make a circuit bringing on the pump. Replacement valve heads cost sround £40 and require some basic wiring to replace or if your skills were up to it, you can replace the motor for around £10. Hope this helps, good luck
