Remove centre cap with flat edge. Remove screw in center of exposed hole. Gently and slowly pull dial off center teeth. It will be hard to remove but you must do it slowly so that you do not loose the position. Gently slip the dial back towards the cold direction. One or two teeth should be enough. Now reassemble and try. If it is colder you went in the wrong direction. If it it hotter congratulations. If it is to hot. Repeat the process and then go back a tooth.
Hope this helps.

I think some shower valves have a safety setting to prevent burning. maybe you could adjust that to be hotter.

Check the hot water flow at the shower - if it's as good as other taps the boiler diverter valve is suspect. Replace either the complete valve or the internal rubber diaphragm, depending on the boiler make

Shower goes hot and cold


If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.


hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
