Apologies for the crude diagram.

Parts in order of assembly:
1 - Spring
2 - Washer
3 - Shuttle(your white pronged part)
4 - Wax capsule/Thermostat(your black and red tube)
5 - Washer(fits over cartridge)
6 - Cartridge
The dripping is caused by the cartridge seals leaking leaking.
You can replace the cartridge as a complete unit or disassemble it, clean all parts(with descaler) and replace the seals, which is considerably cheaper

Why is there no cold water coming out of my shower head


if you live some where that gets cold one of your pipes could have frozen. if you can get to the crawl space/basement put a heater down there for a few hours and leave the shower cold water on if the water comes out of the shower your pipes have thowed out. here is a video https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=5&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDMQtwIwBGoVChMIn6q266OQyQIVAs9jCh3O6QFj&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPbnGn9EG1mw&usg=AFQjCNEMOGXppMYQl-Rcij9L-P36CdC8Rw&bvm=bv.107467506,d.cGc good luck

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

There are filter screens on the thermostatic cartridge inside this unit. You will need to remove the thermostatic cartridge and clean the filter screens. If cleaning the thermostat cartridge does not resolve the issue you may need to replace the cartridge.

Hansgrohe shower thermostat: water is getting only Lukewarm. Hot water ok in sink and throughout rest of house.


The first thing to try is cleaning the filter screens on the thermostatic cartridge. Hansgrohe thermostat valves have filter screens to protect the element from debris or water deposits. If they begin to get clogged the valve will have a hard time regulating temperature.
