Shower goes hot and cold

We have a Mira Extra shower and a combi boiler. It has worked for years with no problems. We have a good hot water supply to bath basin kitchen sink and cloakroom hot taps but when showering it keeps going cold. Is it the shower if so what is it and how do we correct it.

If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

We had the same problem. The plumber replaced the flow cartridge & we still got hot & cold showers. He went against the Mira user guide & removed the flow regulator from the hot water inlet pipe. It worked!

My shower is run off a combi boiler and recently started to go cold for a couple of seconds every few minutes and nobody is running water elsware in the house.


Check the hot water flow at the shower - if it's as good as other taps the boiler diverter valve is suspect. Replace either the complete valve or the internal rubber diaphragm, depending on the boiler make

Mira Sport shower running luke warm


Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

Does not stay hot long goes cold after 5 mins in my mira shower


This sounds like the elements or you just may need to turn the heat up. If it under two years old call the manu on the warranty. They make a good product so they should help you. I would check the heat setting first, though I doubt it is going to be the prob.

Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.


hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.
