It sounds like you have a problem with a motorised valve.first thing to do is find the valve(connected to pipework)and check that its getting power to it with a tester.if there is power getting to it then you will have to take a note of the make and model number and get a replacement head for it(local plumbcentre).there is no need to undo any of the pipework as changing the head is usually only a couple of screws to remove and a couple of wires which will probably go into a junction box.
hope this helps

It sounds like your thermostat on the water heater isn't working properly. try turning it up higher and if this doesn't work I would have a service techy look at it.

Hot water wont get hot


1-First check for power to water heater and remove acces panels on heater to check power at thermostats. Thermostats have a reset button on them that trip and can be pressed to reset.

2- If none of the above have changed any thing and you have power you may have elements gone bad.

If an element is gone at top you will get scalding hot water then go to cold.

If an element on the bottom is gone you will get luke warm water then will get cold.

Extreme hot water then to consistent luke warm


Possible thermostat problem. Are you experienced enough in that area to do some testing. Have a multimeter? If not experienced, don't try it, too dangerous. Call in a service person.

The temperature in my shower is very luke warm only at the shower


Do you mean the other faucets in the house are hot and only the shower is warm? If so there is an anti-scald adjustment on the faucet that needs to be turned up a few notches. Havent adjusted a Grohe faucet but most faucets you rmove the handle and behind the handle is a nothced adjustment ring that prevents the faucet from getting too hot. This ring, or stop, is pulled out and twisted clockwise(or counter clockwise to set higher or lower max temp, then pushed back. maybe you can look up grohe to see which way ring or stop adjusts for hotter water.

I dont know if this is going to post twice but I need to make sure you get it. I sent one asking if this "luke warm" effect occurs during any specific time frames as "self cleaning" water heaters flush the system from time to time. It may in fact be your thermostatic control assembly which sits on the front of the water heater. Let me know about the frequency of the "luke warm" spells and we will see if we can narrow this down.

Thx
P.S. If it is your thermostatic control do not change it yourself unless you know precisely what you are doing. If installed incorrectly they can be very dangerous and life threatening.

Hello .. when an electric water heater only gets warm, it is usually the thermostats. I would replace the thermostats, make notes where the wires are connected .. make sure after replacing that the back of the thermostat is flat against the metal of the tank.
