Locate your electrical panel box, find the breaker for the water heater, turn it off then back on, locate the water heater. Fins the powere disconect. Sometimes they are a simple pull disconect or switch, sometimes they are another breaker or fuse.

Check the fuses or flip the breaker if aplicable.

Do you have a volt/ohm meter?

Not getting any hot water all is turned on but only cold comes out i have hot water out of all other faucets but this one


There are a number of things that could be wrong. Most likely a breaker is tripped (or fuse blown), an element is burnt out, or there is a faulty water heater thermostat. From my experience, I would suspect a burnt out element but I would check the breaker first since it is easiest to check.

Triton jade 3 running cold


Sounds like you have an instant hot water system... (no hot water tank) if true, check that fuse.

Circuit breaker is tripping on electric shower?

This could be absolute danger until more information is known.

1) Breakers trip because they sense heat, because the wire size is too small, or breaker size is mismatched with wire. Or breaker is loose on busbar.
Copy following links to determine correct wiring and breaker:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

GFCI circuit breaker will trip because of same heat condition described above, and also trip if ground fault is detected.
Water leaking into element will trip GFCI.
Absolutely you need to get this problem fixed before shower is put back into service.
Call electrician, or the installer, or the manufacturer, or all.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE AFTER INSTULATION TO HEAT WATER


Electric water heater typically makes 21 gallons hot water per hour.
Gas heater makes 41 gallons per hour.
If you use a timer on electric heater, it will make enough hot water for shower in about 15 minutes summertimer and 30 minutes wintertime. So incoming water temperature is a factor.

If your water heater is not full of water before turning on electricity, then elements will burn out.
Also the ECO might be tripped out: open top cover and push in red reset button.

Have a mira sports shower. when i turn on at isolated switch light comes on but when i turn on shower light goes out. no sound of water coming to unit or electrical sound in unit.


Have you checked if when turning on the shower water the electrical trip switch turns off at the fuse board. If the shower does keep tripping the RCD then the shower is the problem.

On Memera fuse box, 30 amp fuse catridge carrier gets very hot, in fact can smell the plastic melting, but why does the 30 amp fuse cartridge (definitely rated as 30 amp) it is carrying NOT blow (240 volt...


OK well at 120 Volts at say 25 Amps (well below blowing potential) that equals 6000 WATTS 6KW, on a near short circuit. going through it...You would melt TOO.
I always use Ceramic ones myself, look they get HOT real HOT, BUT shouldn''t melt.
But in saying that your Electric shower shouldn't draw that much anyway, in reality. it may draw 10A - 15A, at most? more like 5A - 10A,
So i suspect you have a fault to earth somewhere you need to call an electrician. You may just have discovered a very bad fault. Some sort of short or leakage to earth or something?
A shower shouldn't draw anywhere near enough current to cause this type of occurrence. Please disconnect it by tripping the breaker and call a professional. get that melted one changed anyway.

Hi, my electric shower tripped the fuse yesterday. Since turning back on it now has hardly any pressure and has to be turned up as high as it will go and even then it is only slightly hot!


I think that the reason for tripping the breaker is a short in the wiring some where and thats is also why it wont get as hot as it should cuase the power is grounding out and going somewhere else
