Water is too cool for shower. Is there a thermostat?
I do not believe there is a separate thermostat. However the installation guide: http://www.eemaxinc.com/assets/files/FLOCO-install.pdf gives some trouble-shooting steps. More detailed trouble-shooting is here: http://www.eemaxinc.com/assets/files/floco-trouble.pdf
If the indicator light is off when the hot water valve is open: check your circuit breaker and the flow rate of water into the water heater (it must be over 1/2 gallon per minute). If those are okay, check the resistance of the element with a multimeter - 20 Ohms or less is good, 10,000 Ohms or so indicates a bad element. The trouble-shooting guide indicates the proper points to test.
If the indicator light is on, then check the flow rate at the shower head or faucet (reduce the flow until the water comes out hot), check that the unit is installed to the correct voltage supply and the resistance of the element.
If those are okay, then check that the printed circuit board is correctly installed and that the inlet filter isn't clogged.
After that, it's call the company for their technical support.
