I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question is: Why would the cold line water be luke warm?
In 30 years I've seen this maybe 10 times. It is relatively rare. But each time it was a cross connection between the hot and cold water lines. It could be this fixture is close to the hot water heater or the cross cnnection is in a faucet or it is in the way the water lines are piped. Anyway I would have to closely inspect the system while running the water in the fixtures in different combinations. Once the cross is located the easiest fix at this point is installing a check valve at the right point. You might consider utilizing thr Repair Directory to find a repairman. Make sure he has solved this type of problem before.

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.

This happened to me and it was a rubber pipe inside had perished so it was detecting a loss of pressure. You can see it if you take the main cover off and also the front clipped on cover. Its at the top on the right. You need to replace it with heatproof pipe. Good luck!
