How old is the electric shower?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
5yrs i think
Expert:  JamesI replied 15 days ago.

Ok its out of warranty, its likely the blending valve.

Would you be looking to replace the part yourself or get someone out, as this is a hardware fault (not user error)?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
yes I will replace
Expert:  JamesI replied 15 days ago.

Isolate power I would strip it down and check the valve which is connected to the temp dial is working, and if after removing and giving it a clean its still not working consider replacing it. Its marked as item 3 on the diagram here.
