Why is my shower not getting hot water?

  • A lack of hot water in just your shower is a sign of a problem with the shower faucet. Inside the faucet is a cartridge that mixes hot and cold water together to form the warm water you bath in. If this part breaks or the surface of one of the discs inside the cartridge scratches, it will not operate properly.

The solenoid valve is usually the culprit. The coil in the part normally breaks down. When the coil is working it will lift a plunger inside the solenoid valve and allows the water into the shower. When the coil breaks down, the water stops running and that is what causes the electric shower to stop working.

Most showers wont switch the water on without 230v, they have those inlet solenoid valves similar to the back of your washing machine. no power, no water. Doc H.

When your shower water is not getting hot, normally you would suspect it has something to do with the hot water heater. But a heater is not always the issue, there could be other reasons, such as a faulty shower component, that’s denying you a hot shower when you want it.

If all the other faucets in the home are receiving sufficient hot water, the problem is more likely caused by a shower component, not the water heater. Cross-connected pipes or a malfunctioning mixing valve can cause the shower to produce only cold water. A worn out O-ring or a broken cartridge may cause improper mixing of the hot and cold water

The diverter valve could be the problem If your central heating is functioning perfectly but there is no hot water coming from your shower or taps, it is likely an issue with the diverter valve. Similarly, if you have a combi boiler and your central heating is not working but your hot water is working then it could be the same root problem.

Failing that, or if you don’t use a water heater, then the issue might be with the shower itself – specifically, the shower’s mixing valve, which controls the temperature of the water by “mixing” cold and hot water together. In order to get to this valve, you need to disassemble your entire shower.

The causes of low hot water pressure can be serious, leaving you not just chilly and unsatisfied, but out of pocket for serious repairs and damage. Why is my hot water pressure low? 1. Clogged pipes or fixtures. More often than not, no water pressure in the shower, bathrooms and other parts of the house are caused by your pipes.

A tripped high-temperature cutoff switch is one of the major reasons why no hot water comes into your home anymore. You can fix it by opening the switch and pushing a button. When you push it, you will hear a clicking sound, and then power will get back to the water heater. If the power doesn’t get restored, it probably means the high-temperature cutoff is faulty and needs a replacement.

Number 1: There is no water coming from the shower at all, or it stops and starts This is it, the most common fault with electric showers - the solenoid valve. If you find the shower stops working completely, or indeed cuts off (very often when you have soap in your hair) this is the culprit.

Generally there are three reasons why there is no water coming through your shower head. 1. The tap washers have disintegrated, stopping the flow of water to the shower head. 2. There is grit stuck in the water saving filter in the shower head that is stopping the flow of water.
