Water temp too high

This question is regarding Triton T100si electric Shower Spares

With the flow setting on normal (not 'Eco') and the temp dial turned fully down, the water temperature is too hot (shows up to 48deg). Turning the temp dial has no effect. On Eco the temp is about 36deg. What is the cause of the problem? Is this a specialist job to repair. Have good water pressure.

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 devicewill turn
the power off until it cools Then it all starts again  Makesure that the shower head is clean and clear, that the hose isn’t kinked (thiscan happen just behind the hand set where it is difficult to see) also checkthe inside of the hose although it can look OK on the outside it could havecollapsed 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.

Carry out this check after you check the inlet valves.
