Hi and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve. Also remember to be detailed in your description of the problem. That will help me make a diagnosis quickly for you.
How old is your shower?
Did this happen at one time or did it act up intermittently before hand?
Thank you

The shower is about 10 years old
This fault has just occurred Before all was fine
Thanks David, the shower needs a new valve assembly. If you are handy and have the tools to do this you could do it with my help. But with this unit, most people replace the entire shower mechanism because the cost and work involved is almost as much as a new automatic shower unit.
the button activates the automatic hold electrically and mechanically but yours has worn out internally. This is normal considering the age of the unit unfortunately.
I will help you replace this unit if you want, please let me know on that. I hate when the best advice is a replacement of the unit;-(
I wish I had better news for you I really do.
I will stick with you in case you need me further, you can reach me after rating at no additional cost .
