I have a triton trance 2nd generation electic shower that is a couple of years old when you turn the flow on it comes out red hot but as you increase the flow it gets colder as flow is increased what is...

Is it possible to have plumber come inspect? Warranty from purchase place? Since you don't sound you put it in I'm guessing a plumber did? It would've been new to him for the most part and he may have hooked something up wrong? You CAN DIY but realize that we're talking electric AND plumbing here. I'm thinking since it heats up the electric is fine. But check your man's work to see if it's got the 30-45A fuse on a dedicated circuit.
1.While out ay elect. box turn OFF by removing fuse or switching to OFF. Test unit that it only runs cold water.
2. Find shut off for water. Sometimes you have to shut off whole house! Hopefully somebody added a shutoff. Look on backside of shower for a 1'x1' hatch covering with a cold and hot valve. Turn water off. Test unit to see if it runs.
3. Now use the manual below and get in there and see if its hooked up right. Go slow and take your time. Retrace the install instructions.

Best wishes. Wear nitrile gloves for peace of mind!

DON'T do it if you're not aware of the electrocution issue. Water all over your bathroom (loo?) is one thing, a 230v shock is another!

If all the windows will not work it will most likely be a blown fuse or a faulty relay. Check the fuse box in the engine bay for a blown power window fuse. If they are ok check the relay by swapping it with one of the other relays in the fuse box.

The air conditioning unit won't work. The lights behind the panel light up, and when I turn the air all the way to cold, you can hear a click like it wants to go on, but can't. Do you know how to...

Check the fuse block. Sounds like the compressor fuse is blown. Maybe a 32Amp. It's a biggie. Maybe looks like a black relay in the engine compartment on the left side along with an array of large fuses. You can check the fuse box inside the car as well, but those are controlling smaller items like lights. The big boys are in the engine compartment. Also check for loose wires around the AC compressor and make sure the belt is not broken or missing.

No hot water

Check your fuse/breaker, should be a rcd switch. Depending when the shower was installed the fuse/breaker may be separate from the main fuse board, if it is an rcd switch it should be between 30A and 40A rating. If it is still fuse wire or cartridge fuse it should be replaced by residual current device.
Remember to turn the shower off in the bathroom before returning power to it.
Hope this helps

If your Heatpump's fan isn't running but your compressor is, your fan motor is out. If nothings happening at all ensure your getting power to heatpump (ex: breaker tripped, fuses blown on outside power switch, or fuses blown in breaker box?)
