    Hi All,

    I was having a shower tonight, i switched the electric shower on, had my shower and when i come to switch it off at the stop button on the face of the shower it just didn't stop. The electric light on the unit was then off, i pulled the pull cord to off and it still kept running.

    I turned the whole electric off to the whole of my house and had a look inside, i can;t see anything of concern, no loose wires and all appropriately connected and covered, no sign of any water leakage at all. I took a look at the inlet pipe, which is provided in copper, but there is no isolation on that :(

    Has anybody come across this before? if so, what tend to be the usual faults?

    Regards

    Andemz
