Home Improvement Questions? Ask a Handyman for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. There is likely debris stuck in the filter. Have you removed the filter and checked for debris?
Is there any error message?
There should be a filter on the incoming water. If you disconnect the incoming water do you see anything there?
The filter and flow sensor are all there. Debris sticking in the filter and keeping the flow sensor closed.
I doubt a new shower would have a faulty solenoid but possible. The first thing I would have said is the solenoid but it is new.
If you turn the power off for 5 minutes and turn it back on does it fix it then?
That is fine. I imagine it is not going to be a huge issue considering the newness. Chat with you then.
Have disconnected supply and checked filter all clean as I thought it might be, have seen replacement flow valve with solenoid attached online for £45, would it be worth switching that before anything else, unfortunately the unit has been a spare sitting in my garage for some time and out of warranty, spoke to mira and they wanted £159 to send an engineer out!
cant believe it could be anything else.
When I first install any shower and turn on supply water never comes out, all this happened before I even switched on the power. The shower is over £300 to replace so gotta be worth a try do u think? Thanks Graham.
Yes it certainly does sound worth repairing. Does the kit include the the solenoid also? I would thing that would be the most likely part at fault. Sorry for the delayed response. I didn't get the email that I usually get when there is a response. I just happened to check in and was going to ask if there was any progress.
Thanks for reply, have a contact who can get his hands on spares so hopefully will be up and running by the weekend. Thanks for all your help. Graham.
You are very welcome.
