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.

Also check the following things:
The control unit, hose and shower head - depending on the type, some heads will hold water. Remove them and check to see if they are exhibiting signs of mold or possible failure. At 11 years old, the element could be on its way out. If your Mira unit has an auxiliary pump, it should be checked as well. If it's the shower head, you can try to soak it in white vinegar to remove the smell, or simply replace it. If you have well water, you should consider flushing the system to be sure water isn't being trapped somewhere. Also, if the iron content of the water is high, or if your water softener isn't operating properly, that could be an issue as well. The Mira control unit may need to be de-scaled or otherwise checked.
Check the shower stall walls (with no tub) at the bottom where they meet the basin, unless the shower enclosure is all one piece. There could be mold behind the intersection of the walls and base.
Look for any trace of mold growth around any other enclosure components.
If the shower is in a tub, remove the overflow cover on the tub and see if there is any trace of mildew or mold in that area. Follow your nose.
Finally, check for any excessive build up of soap scum, although this is less likely because you'd notice it more readily.
Things like this can be tough to diagnose, so just take things slow and one at a time.

Testimonial: "all these things we have tried could it be the element inside the shower unit degrading"
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.

Check the in line filter in the inlet solenoid valve assembly. If there is crud collecting in the filter this will restrict water flow and the over heat protection will trigger to protect the heater elements
