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!

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.

how on earth is this related to gaming consoles or PS3 ??
Please post under correct sections next time.
Anyways, it looks like a common problem for the Triton Shower, and it might cost you some $90 to fix it.

In the top of the water inlet valve at the bottom of the unit there's a plunger that rises when the water is switched on. this activates a small switch at the bottom of the pcb and cancels the low pressure warning. this is free to turn in the valve and over times may rotate stopping the plate on the top from contacting the switch on the pcb. If this has happened just turn the plunger back to the correct position.

If the water temp is fluctuating from very hot and cool the problem could lie with a blockage in the inlet to the shower, scale inside the heater can, shower hose needs replacing or the shower head needs to be cleaned The problem is a "slowing" of the water across the heating elements which causes the water to pick up too much heat
