The last time you had problems with this boiler - did you replace the DHW sensor ?
IF the sensor is faulty it may be retaining the heat and keep cutting the burner off (as it should) when the boiler is at the set tempererature.
To check the diverter, run the hot tap when the heating side is cold. Feel the flow and return pipes they should remain cold. The DHW draw off should be hot. I don't think it will be the diverter at fault, as this would mean the heat rather than going to the water - would be going to the radiators, so the burner would remain on as the heat can be lost via the radiators.
