Central Heating Question

Boiler fires up for water not for heating

hi,i have a normal (not combi) baxi boiler

it is firing up and producing hot water but will not fire up or heat the radiators

any ideas would be great

ive just noticed when you hit the switch for the hot water to come on a light comes on with boiler written underneath then it fires up and all other lights light up in sequence and all good

when you hit the heating switch NO boiler light comes on at all

tried the hall stat it clicks bt dosent fire up when it should

many thanks

Sounds like the divertor valve on the boiler needs replacing.
