Question about Water Heaters
The shower has had this problem twice now. First time I replaced the heating canister and it seemed to fix the problem as it was an element confirmed by the creda engineer who came to examine the shower but couldnt fit the item. Same problem has occurred now 2 months later. Surely the canister couldnt have failed again. The basic issue is the heat is no longer as strong as it was. I have also noticed the only the lower power led is on and the high led. The Mid temperature led is not on suggesting that either a microswitch is not working or the element in the heater has gone again? Not being a shower expert i was hoping for some advice on this before i get the multimeter out and test the microswitch and heater elements as the Creda engineer seemed to be at a loss as well. The same problem occurred with a Creda 950DL so perhaps it is a manufacturer fault.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: shower will not heat up
May have a tripped thermal overload or blown fuse. Some overloads reset automatically but some will have a red button to reset it with. Some have to be replaced.

One of the thermostats is sticking causing overheating that trips ECO reset located on upper thermostat. There is no good way to test thermostats since testing means turning the temperature setting which temporarily unsticks bad thermostat so it looks like it works ok, so replace both thermostats.
