Hudson Thermostatic Problem

Hope you can help.

I've had this shower for about a year and it has never worked porperly. The water does not get hot, i have adjusted the shower via the calibration process, to the fully left and the water not getting hotter. The hot pipe feeding the shower is very hot to the touch.

I have also thought the rubber washer, maybe the problem, but i have replace them with the service kit and this made no difference

PLEASE HELP MY OTHER HALF JUST ABOUT READY TO SLAP ME!!

Try this.
if you have anti scald device installed in the valve, take it out. the anti-scald device is to keep the hot water from pouring out in case the cold water pipe is not functioning. In general sense, it is a good idea, however, it also mixes too much of cold water, therefore you don't get eough hot water.

Why is there no cold water coming out of my shower head


if you live some where that gets cold one of your pipes could have frozen. if you can get to the crawl space/basement put a heater down there for a few hours and leave the shower cold water on if the water comes out of the shower your pipes have thowed out. here is a video https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=5&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDMQtwIwBGoVChMIn6q266OQyQIVAs9jCh3O6QFj&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPbnGn9EG1mw&usg=AFQjCNEMOGXppMYQl-Rcij9L-P36CdC8Rw&bvm=bv.107467506,d.cGc good luck

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

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.
