thermal switch 1 Answer

Q: i have replaced my thermal switch twice in the last month why would it keep blowing?

Submitted 113 days ago | by Gordon, hull uk
! Answer this question

A: After fitting a new TCO

Whenfitting a new TCO listen to the shower, after it has completed its first on/offcycle, if when it is switched off you hear it continuing to heat (Noise like akettle starting to boil) this will mean that there is a switch or a relay thatis stuck in the on position, this is keeping an element energised and this isprobably what caused the original TCO to fail.

If thisis the case replace the faulty switch or relay and make sure that you switch theshower off at the isolating switch when the shower is not in use because thismay cause the new TCO to fail.

9.5 kw sprint cuts out 1 Answer

Q: This shower cuts out after a few minutes. The power light

goes out because the mains circuit breaker has tripped. The low flow light does not illuminate.

The water runs on for a few seconds. With the case off I notice a faint whiff of overheating electrics but no obvious sign of melted cable or bits.

This started when my visiting daughter had a long shower on high heat.

Blowing earth trip 1 Answer

Q: My Mira Sprint approx 18 months old trips the earth trip on consumer box when the latching switch is operated, strange thing is it doesn't do it every time, do you have any ideas what the cause might be and would changing the Latching switch and solinoid solve it.

! Answer this question

A: It may be a faulty elementin the heating tank (there are two, three in most 10kw showers) you can checkthem with a multi meter you should have a reading of around 12>18 ohms.

If you have power to theelements and no heat it's probably the elements, no power to the elements thenit's probably a micro switch.

If you don’t have amultimeter we sell them at £10 each with a guide on how to use them forchecking and testing the various parts of your shower.

Apart from helping to fixyour shower, they are really useful for checking you have a power supply toappliances, for checking fuses, letting you know much power you have left inbatteries

(so you know if they are dud ornot) and lots of other jobs, in short they are well worth the £10.

A: The things to check firstare:

1 That the main valve cominginto your house is fully open.

2 Then check that the valve on the line to the shower isfully open.

If these valvesare not fully open then there may not be enough water getting to your shower.

Make sure that the shower head isclean and clear, that the hose isn’t kinked (this can happen just behind thehand set where it is difficult to see) also check the inside of the hosealthough it can look OK on the outside it could have collapsed internally.

The other possibility is a faulty flow/stabilizer valve not allowingthe correct amount of water into the shower.

A rough check is to remove the shower head turn temperature control tofully hot the water coming out of the hose should be a bit more than a dribblethen turn to fully cold and it should be coming out at full flow.

If there is not much difference between the two then you could have afaulty flow valve.

Mira Sprint (8.5kw) 1 Answer

Q: Hi,

I have just had a water pressure reducing valve installed on the mains water.

However, now when I switch on the shower I get a screeching noise from the temperature controller. Sometimes it will go off after a few seconds and other times I need to adjust the temperature knob.

The pressure is now lower than it was before so I don't know why the screeching has occurred.

Also if I do need to replace the temperature valve is there a part number?

Regards Steve

Submitted 417 days ago | by Steve, Edinburgh
! Answer this question

A: You are really looking for a minimum of 1bar pressure tomake this work properly so first check that –you have at least that coming throughthe pressure reducing valve.

It may be that some dirt has come through and caused aproblem with the flow valve or just coincidence that the flow valve has becomefaulty when the pressure has changed.

Faulty TCO in Mira Sprint? 1 Answer

Q: Okay I've replaced this unit a number of times now. When new unit goes in it works straight away. Had this one in a month or so. Water has gone cold. No continuity across TCO. If I take TCO out and then reposition it does this reset the TCO? I get continuity again when I do this but then shower temperature fluctuates for a bit then runs cold. Again no continuity across TCO. Frustrated!!

Mira sprint. Keeps triping 1 Answer

Q: My shower turns off after a few minutes and low flow light comes on

Submitted 440 days ago | by Andy-n, Mansfield
! Answer this question

A: It may be your solenoid valve, you can check it if you have a multi meter, you should have a reading of at least k3.5 ohms, across the two terminals any less and you need a new valve. (Check the valve in the failed state.) (When it has stopped working!)

If there is power getting to the solenoid and it is not operating then there is a good chance that you have a faulty solenoid.

No Hot Water & TCO full continuity 1 Answer

Q: MIRA Sprint 2 9.5kW



Bought from you and changed Latching Switch last week after that became faulty which fixed initial fault. However, earlier today main house fuse tripped when shower switched back on after some minutes of use. User reported noise at point of switching on and fuse tripping. On resetting house power, no hot water but full cold water flowing and no other indicators/noises. TCO passes the continuity test.



Mention of relays and flow valves in other Q&As but rather suspect the heating elements have blown. Would you advise further testing and/or probable diagnosis?

Q: Shower pushes out sufficient cold water, but will not give anything else, regardless of settings. The low pressure light is not illuminated.

Submitted 855 days ago | by Bill, Nr Bridgnorth, south Shropshire
! Answer this question

A: I think you may have a faulty Thermal Cut Out
A faultyTCO will have no continuity across the two terminals (The black thing on top ofthe heating tank) Thereforea good TCO will have power at both connections and a faulty TCO will have powerat only one. (Thefunction of the TCO is, if the water over heats it cuts the power off to theelements until the water cools, this can take up to 15mins)

See Video.

http://www.youtube.com/user/showerdoc#p/u/2/_zi8JbEMYMs

After fitting a new TCO

When fitting a new TCO listen to the shower, after it hascompleted its first on/off cycle, if when it is switched off you hear itcontinuing to heat (Noise like a kettle starting to boil) this will mean thatthere is a switch or a relay that is stuck in the on position, this is keepingan element energised and this is probably what caused the original TCO to fail.

If this is the case replace the faulty switch or relay andmake sure that you switch the shower off at the isolating switch when theshower is not in use because this may cause the new TCO to fail.

Mira sprint stopping problem 1 Answer

Q: My mir a sprint shower keeps running for a few minutes after I have turned it off even if I turn the power off

Submitted 978 days ago | by Shamus, Nantwich
! Answer this question

A: It is going to need a new flow valve

Sprint Flow Valve

Turn off water and power.

It may be useful to take photos before and as you strip down the unit they can be invaluable when reassembling

You will need a 'Torx' screwdriver with a T10 bit

Cover the waste pipe unless you want to lose the screws

Remove screws from 'U' clamp, switching assembly (at top of flow valve),the clip that holds flow valve and heating tank together and the screws at heating tank outlet pipe.

Ease tank and valve forward and slightly right, pull the heating tank away from the valve some water will run out of the tank at this point.

Allow the tank to hang on the wires strip off the wires from the existing flow valve and refit them to the new valve.

Fit the new check valve (supplied) to the flow valve outlet (Large end in)

Using the new 'O' rings (make sure they don’t fall off or become misplaced when fitting) fit the new flow valve make sure that it locates correctly with the heating tank clip and the locating pins at the top of the valve locate correctly with the switching assembly, as you push the whole assembly back into position ensure that the heating tank outlet pipe is in position and the inlet connector is in place.

The above procedure is not technically difficult however three pairs of hands and the ability to levitate will help and for sure you will be glad when you see it all back in place!

Once everything is back in place refit all the screws making sure that everything is located correctly and nothing is misaligned.

Turn on water and examine for leaks switch on power then turn shower on at cold setting and run for 1min. Take care when doing this as shower is now live.

Refit cover and test at different power settings.

If every thing is OK have a shower you deserve it!!!!!

PS

If I have missed anything or you think of something that will make this job easier then please let me know and I’ll add it to the instructions.

PPS

The flow valve has recently changed it now needs the switching assembly replaced and a new neon at the same time, these instructions have not yes been up dated to take this in to account.

Q: hi - the problem is as above. The water flow seems fine but the temperature oscillates from hot to cold in a regular cyclical pattern. Many thanks mark

! Answer this question

A: The things to check first are.

1 That the main valve coming into your house is fully open.

2 Then check that the valve on the line to the shower is fully open.

If these valves are not fully open then there may not be enough water
getting to your shower to cool it properly the overheat safety device will turn
the power off until it cools Then it all starts again

Make sure that the shower head is clean and clear, that the hose isn’t kinked (this can happen just behind the hand set where it is difficult to see) also check the inside of the hose although it can look OK on the outside it could have collapsed internally

If all the above are OK  then it is likely to be a faulty flow/stabilizer valve not allowing the correct amount of water into the shower.

Sprint Flow Valve

Turn off water and power.

It may be useful to take photos before and as you strip down the unit they can be invaluable when reassembling

You will need a 'Torx' screwdriver with a T10 bit

Cover the waste pipe unless you want to loose the screws

Remove screws from 'U' clamp, switching assembly (at top of flow valve),the clip that holds flow valve and heating tank together and the screws at heating tank outlet pipe.

Ease tank and valve forward and slightly right, pull the heating tank away from the valve some water will run out of the tank at this point.

Allow the tank to hang on the wires strip off the wires from the existing flow valve and refit them to the new valve.

Fit the new check valve (supplied) to the flow valve outlet (Large end in)

Using the new 'O' rings (make sure they don’t fall off or become misplaced when fitting) fit the new flow valve make sure that it locates correctly with the heating tank clip and the locating pins at the top of the valve locate correctly with the switching assembly, as you push the whole assembly back into position ensure that the heating tank outlet pipe is in position and the inlet connector is in place.

The above procedure is not technically difficult however three pairs of hands and the ability to levitate will help and for sure you will be glad when you see it all back in place!

Once everything is back in place refit all the screws making sure that everything is located correctly and nothing is misaligned.

Turn on water and examine for leaks switch on power then turn shower on at cold setting and run for 1min. Take care when doing this as shower is now live.

Refit cover and test at different power settings.

If every thing is OK have a shower you deserve it!!!!!

PS

If I have missed anything or you think of something that will make this job easier then please let me know and I’ll add it to the instructions.

PPS

The flow valve has recently changed it now needs the switching assembly replaced and a new neon at the same time, these instructions have not yes been up dated to take this in to account.

Good afternoon,
A:
Thank you for your email.

Before ordering a shower head holder it is important to measure the diameter of the pole on to which you will fit this part. This is important because Mira have manufactured several shower head holders down the years, all to suit different diameters of pole. Once you have obtained the relevant measurement, then please follow the link below. Here you will find a part to suit...

A: It may be a faulty element in the heating tank (there are two, three in 10kw showers) you can check them with a multi meter you should have a reading of around 12>18 ohms 

If you don’t have a multimeter  we sell them at £10 each with a guide on how to use them for checking and testing the various parts of your shower. 

Apart from helping to fix your shower, they are really useful for checking you have a power supply to appliances, for checking fuses, letting you know much power you have left in batteries

(so you know if they are dud or not)  and lots of other jobs, in short they are well  worth the £10.

Blown out heater tank rubber ball valve 1 Answer

Q: The said ball blew out of the tank the first time the shower was used, just after we had a new kitchen fitted. The mains water pressure is very high and we never open the stopcock fully, but the fitters didn't know this! Therefore I suspect that the input pressure may have had something to do with it. However, when forcing the little ball back in, I must have damaged it slightly as there is now a slow leak from the valve outlet. Is it possible to get a replacement ball? Am I correct about the input pressure being responsible for the valve blowing out?
