Advice on repairing this type of shower, please

I'm hoping you can help me, please. My shower was working fine - then there was a tiny 'pop' sound and the water immediately shut off. There's power still getting to the unit (ie the front light still comes on) but there's no sound from the pump or any water coming out. I've just taken the front casing off but there's nothing obviously burnt-out that I can see, so now I'm stuck...

Any ideas what it might be? I'm reluctant to spend another £100 for a Triton engineer to take about 5 minutes to change one little plastic bit the last time this happened...! I'd really appreciate your advice and hope you can help. Thank you.

It could be a couple of things but check this out first.

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 is not 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.

If you don’t have a multimeter we sell them 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 and letting you know much power you have left in batteries

(So you will know if they are good or not) and lots of other jobs, in short they are well worth a few pounds
