    Hi, Ive got an electric shower seems to be suddenly too hot, is it possible that this is caused by having the wrong head on it ?
    it does say only use with original head but I think its been changed, can it make that much difference ?
    thanks
    ps its a gainsborough 9.5 se

    Have you removed the head to see if the issue reoccurs?

    have done that its still overheating dangerously, made a clicking noise first, steam came out , surely there should be some overheat protection ?
    thanks

    Should be some overheat protection, has anything else been altered as well as the head?

    There will be a thermostat somewhere in the shower also an anti scald device.

    There should be a thermal cutout if it overheats , sounds like something has gone very wrong

    What shower is it?
