Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a NewTeam 1500xt Therostatic power shower. With this shower you should be able to press the eco button to engage the pump for higher pressure but this isn't working. The shower works fine under normal gravity (with much lower pressure) but this defeats the purpose of having a 'power' shower. Can this be fixed or is a new shower needed?

Maybe the fuse in the supply has busted. The gravity only function woud still work then as you are only opening the valves.

My Triton shower Eco Excite 8.5kW keeps tripping fuse when turned on !!


Could be a pump jam, do you have hard water ? Could be scale build up.
Is the shower head blocked ? Unscrew just the head (leaving the hose line attached to shower) and try again. If that is the blockage, then clean it with descaler.
Also check you have a good pressure on your water supply going in the Triton. Low pressure can set off safety switches. Again, check for blockages.
Check also for breaks in wiring and check there is no water ingress at any and all connections.
Is it an old unit ? Is it serviced regularly ? .......finally....
are all the settings set to MAX ? if so then use lowest setting first.
If it works then move settings up gradually until it trips.
Any filters need to be checked if possible.
Good luck Red.

My Fisher & Paykel intuitive eco washing machine starts the drain pump as soon as the power is turned on and continues pumping when no water present. It also displays "help, i need water" at...


Hi - this is a strange one - I could be wrong here but I think that theres two likely possibilities for you - first is the motor controller board could be faulty - it may have a short on the switch ic for the drain pump - the other is there maybe an air lock or blockage to the pressure tube - remove the display panel to access the clear tube - unclip it & blow into towards the bowl to see if theres a blockage.

You say as soon as the start switch is pushed the pump runs continously? or does it come on as soon as the power button is pushed? either way I think the controller maybe faulty - haven't come across aything like this one before...

Cheers

I want my shower to have more water pressure. I am on a well with my pressure valve on 90 pounds. I am willing to change the pipes under my house to change this situation. I am to the point of trying...


If your pressure gauge is up to 90 lbs, it should be pounding the **** out of you, Something is wrong, get another pressure dial on there and see if it is still reading 90 lbs. Then make sure the california water saver is taken out of the shower head, Then make sure there are no galvanized connections between pipes, like copper to plastic or iron to copper, the galv will corrode 10 times faster because of the electrolysis, and seal itself off. then if you have a pump motor that sits up top, not submersible, whack on the connection with a hammer to dislodge any pebbles or what ever in the pipe. If that doesn't do it, check the air pressure in the tank and see if it is water logged. bleed the tank, then fill it back up, or just pump some air into the top and see if changes anything. Hope this helps.

Our F&P DD601V2 double dishdraw is showing error 'U3' and the water does not totally drain out after a cycle, any ideas? Thanks


This applies to all DD601 and DD603 dishdrawers.
U3 is either one of the following:
- Drain pump is blocked.
- Drain hose is blocked.
- Sprayarm or rotor not turning freely.
- Motor electronics have failed.
- Machine set to 'LP' on a high pressure water supply.

Often it's just the last one, "Machine set to 'LP' on a high pressure water supply.", as this can be unintentionally changed by a user from an uncommon course of events. Sometimes, due to the technical design of the way the buttons work, if water bridges the 2 "Programme" and "Eco" buttons (inside on the top right of the tub), pressing either one, or both, (or just having your finger in the water) for longer than 5 seconds brings up a special mode that a user, in their ignorant attempts to get out of it, can erroneously change the pressure setting, subsequently causing a U3 error. It happened to me once when I was cleaning the machine, wiping around the Programme buttons.

To change to the proper High or Low Pressure settings:
1) LCD Display on. Hold the Programme and Eco touch switches simultaneously for 5 seconds.
2) Machine beeps and "HP" or "LP" is displayed in the LCD.
3) Push the Start/Pause button to toggle between them.
4) Push the Power button when correct selection complete.

Saniflow plus works allright for w.c but will not work for shower


Thanks for the clarification - This rules out power supply to the unit, motors/pump and points more towards why the water would be pumped from the WC flush and not the basins ...

1. The Saniflo range of macerators have a pressure switch that engages when the water pressure inside the unit activates a microswitch that is encased in a waterproof container. It is possible that the water pressure from the shower and basins is not great enough to activate the internal switch.

So, I would propose two checks

a) If the unit previously worked for the shower and basins something has changed and it is most likely to be gunk inside the unit causing the switch to be less sensitive and only activate on the high pressure that the WC would provide. The fix would be to open up the unit and clean it - please let me know if you need info on how to do this

b) If this is a new install and the shower and basins never worked, you should check the fall in the pipework into the Saniflo is sufficient (should be 1 in 70 from memory - full install instructions are available from the Saniflo website)

c) It could be that if the unit has been in for a long time with a large number of operations that the microswitch is starting to fail and is not as sensitive as it once was (quite unlikely) - but always a possibility!

Replacement microswitches are freely available online and you should also be able to get the exact match spares from Saniflo

If this helps please leave feedback - if not please let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Good Luck :)

Mira cold feed only power shower


Hi davecross,

I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber.

Your question is:
water pressure not great would a external pump help. Depends on your situation. If you live in a house with a well pump then turn up the pressure. If you have city water and the pressure is lacking then either install a house pump after the meter or if it is just the shower you're worried about then a booster pump on the shower line is the ticket. Be aware that useing the booster may reduce the pressure at the other faucets in the house while it's being used. The house pump will not exhibit this. You will likely need a local pro to help you with installation. Feel free contact me again!

Thank you, Harvey, your Master Plumber
