Not sure what category to select. I have Creda 9.5w Electric

Resolved Question:

Not sure what category to select.
I have Creda 9.5w Electric shower that now only gives cold water showers. The overheat button is lit up.
I have checked the flow with and without the shower head and it remains the same, I have run it while switched to cold, medium and high and the flow remains the same. There is a separate temperature control and if this is turned to the hottest setting the water comes out at a very slow rate, which i would expect, however it is still cold.
Is there some component that I need to buy or do I need new shower?
Any help is appreciated.
Many Thanks
Roger

No, sorry
