SOURCE: Triton T80si shower will not switch off

its the water solenoid valve stuck in the open position so when the shower is turned off the shower stays running

SOURCE: kettle shuts off before boiling?

I had a similar failure. Switch it on and the lights flicker and go out before it boils. Took it apart (Tamper Proof TORX, available from Snap-On, Canadian Tire, probably most auto parts places that also sell tools). The On-Off switch has a mechanical lock out for the lid being open and also for when it is not mounted on the base. The kettle also has three bi-metallic temperature switches. One shuts off the kettle after it has boiled long enough. The other two sit up against the element assembly adjacent to each end of the heating element.They protect against boiling an empty kettle by sensing the higher element temperture when there is no water to conduct away the heat. In the case where the lights flicker and go out, but the switch stays 'On' these are the likely culprit.
In my kettle the contacts did not line up correctly. Instead of making good contact they were only partially overlapping like a couple of the olympic rings or a couple of rings from the Audi logo. This resulted in a localized increased resistance and high heat in one of the contact holders which eventually melted the surrounding plastic. At that point the wires going to the element behaved a bit like springs which forced the contact holder further out of alignment until it all became hot enough to trigger the thermal switch.
I fixed it by bending the contact holder, which is fused into the now hardened plastic, to the optimal position and hopefully it will not generate enough heat to remelt the plastic or trip the thermal switch.
I have boiled a couple of kettlefuls; so far so good!

What ticks me off about this is that I don't mind getting 'Made In China' ****; everything comes from China anyway. But don't charge me a ridiculous amount of money and try to pretend that I am getting a superiour product. If I had paid twenty dollars or less for it I would just chuck it and get the same one again because it looks nice, pours well, doesn't burn the hands, worked OK for couple of years, etc. Instead I walk away from this feeling really ripped off. I have a house full of Braun products(shaver, kettle multiple tooth brushes) but now I won't buy any more.

Oh and if you take your kettle apart and your house burns down it is not my fault. There, now I feel better.

It could be the steam solenoid or the small hole in the group head next to the screw holes gets blocked up as well.

It is probably the water solenoid valve wich is stuck or bunt out.
If it is brand new, maybe you have warranty.

The car engine heats up to the extend that the water in the radiater boiles although the car is at rest


hi could be the thermostat, take it out when engine is cold, put in a pan of hot water if it opens ok, if not bin and replace, if it opens then look for water leak.
or remove oil filler cap if you see a grey sludgy mixture,this is a mixtur of oil and water, it could be the head gasket, or a cracked block, have you run the vehicle without water, if so it could be the head or cracked block

My triton shower won't turn off and has no hot water


Your supply pressure is too high for the unit, it is too much for the solenoid to shut off, you need to put a pressure limiting valve inline.

We have triton cascade power shower and the water keeps coming out even when the power is isolated.


I too am having exactly the same problem with my triton 300 si. I have noticed that since this behaviour started the red light around the on/off switch is no longer illuminated (whether it's on or off).
I have tried calling the technical support but they wont help since it's out of Guarantee. Have you noticed any other features missing or not working?

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.
