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.

My Mira Vie shower keeps blowing the trip why is that ?

It could well be that water is getting into the electrical connections or has done in the past and has caused them to become corroded. It's not often that I would recommend getting a professional in, but electric showers really do need to be fitted properly.

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

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.

Every time i turn the shower on it tripps the electric

if you mean it trips the breaker in the breaker box for the house you have a dangerous problem going the shower system a newr fancy one with any pumps for the water etc? in that case it may be a bad pump. if not then you may be getting water into the electrical system somehow and you need an electrician to look into it right away. one other option is does turning on the shower activate any lighting fixtures in the bath? if so then that may be the source but you still need an electrician to service the system asap. dont use the shower anymore until you get it checked out.

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
