SOURCE: triton electric shower runs cold

hi it sounds as though the thermostat has gone on top of the can assembly, or moreover it has scaled up & the element needs replacing, if thats the case your better off buying a new unit as the cost of the can assembly & the fitting it will be nearly as much, plus witha new unit you'll be getting a 2 yr guarantee?
Just a thought!

SOURCE: triton t80i water only warm in winter

That sounds like a water heater problem, wheres the heater at in your home. If it is effected by the outside weather i.e. the heater is in a cold environment then it would effect the hot water output. try turning up the thermostat on the heater if it is gas then it should be knob on the outside if it is electric you will need to remove the top or the bottom cover and adjust it with a screw driver. If this does not work the let me know and we try some other things. With the weather/temp outside effecting the water temp in the shower then I have a hard time believing it is the shower its self.

SOURCE: my triton topaz t100si (10.5kw)

If there is no heat at all then you may have a faulty TCO (Thermal Cut Out). A faulty TCO will have no continuity across the two terminals (the black thing on top of the heating tank).

Therefore a good TCO will have power at both connections and a faulty TCO will have power at only one (the function of the TCO is, if the water over heats it cuts the power off to the elements). Here could see one video about some tests...



If there is some heat then It may be a faulty element in the heating tank (there are two, three in most 10kw showers) you can check them with a multi meter you should have a reading of around 12>18 ohms.

If you have power to the elements and no heat it's probably the elements, no power to the elements then it's probably a micro switch.

Hope this helps.

Water flows continuosly for 1minute after switched off


You need to check all valves, one of them must be broken or too old.

Also the pressure is a little bit higher in there, but there is nothing to be afraid of.

My triton martinique electric shower low pressure light comes on and the water goes cold but there is nothing wrong with the pressure


Hi,

I had a brand new Triton Rapide 3 with this issue, we had good water pressure but the light on the front would keep coming on.

I found there was a micro switch located at the front almost dead center of the shower, couldn't miss it when you removed the cover. A plastic arm below this switch is raised when the water pressure increases tripping this switch and allowing the heater to come on.

I found two things wrong with this, one this plastic leaver was thin and bent easily and secondly the switch did no line up overly well with the lever. Easily fixed, I cut an inch off the end of a zip tie or panduit strap, and super-glued it to the top of the lever (not the switch as the glue will probably ruin the micro switch.) 5 minute job later and with the shower back together it works beautifully. My wife will be happy, you wouldn't believe the torrid of curses I got this morning having only replaced the old unit last night.

Probably don't need to say this but, make sure you isolate the power before removing the cover.

Cannot locate the thermal cut out in the shower unit


Most of the time, these are an auto reset type. But I would recommend calling the manufacture. They usually have an 800 number for you to call. Or you might be able to find the info on their website and or possibly download the installation and user manual for it.
