    My electric shower unit Mira Advance 8.7S J87E 09/03 is no longer working (no lights on, no water flow). The pull-cord for electricity to the bathroom also won't turn on. Is this likely an issue with the pull-cord or the shower unit (e.g. short circuit)?

    I have some quotes to replace the shower unit (assuming this is the cause) and have been advised the new unit should be 'like for like' to avoid rewiring or having to replace tiles. However, having looked at a few replacement units online to get an idea of prices and options it looks like mine is old and no longer available. Does anyone know what the equivalent (new) model it? *To be installed by a professional when they attend - but I want to make sure everything can be fixed on a single visit

    How would you expect the shower to work if the switch doesn't?

    Sounds like the switch is buggered. Common occurrence.

    As above, especially if you use the switch frequently.
