two pipes coming into boiler on right hand side have brass block valves with a small round recess. These two valves are linked with a stainless fill hose.
Inside the recess on each valve is a small slot, there is a "key" with the boiler but prob lost with the manual. The advantage of the key is its sized so you wont be poking it in the wrong place!
Using a screwdriver turn both slots throug 90 degrees, you will hear water running through. Sometimes one valve is left open so try a combination until the watert runs.
Keep an eye on the pressure gauge and dont let it get too high, if you have no idea of setting pressure head for about 1bar.

Most likey problem is the diverter valve, not energising fully. This in turn will not move the little plastic lever arm that actuates the microswitch on the side, sending the signal to ignite.
You can buy a diaghram kit from most local plumb centres, you need to replace the diaghram and seals, don't forget the silicon grease to ensure the plunger doesnt stick. Kits less than a tenner.
You should have noticed before it stopped working completely the water had reduced in temperature before the weeks it failed.
To make sure it is a diverter valve fault, depress the microswitch if you can, when the hot water is flowing and hey presto the demand for hot water light should shine.

You have a faulty diverter valve, this is a fiddly job, you need to call in a 'Gas Safe' engineer to diagnose and replace this
I hope this helps
