    Our shower recently stopped working, I presumed it was a fault with the shower and replaced it. Got a couple of uses then stopped working again, then after a couple of days started working and then stopped again.

    The shower has a pull switch which when on shows a red light but there is no power light on the shower when this is switched on.

    I suspect I may have changed a shower when there may be a problem somewhere else?

    I have also recently taken off the pull switch and re-tightened all the terminals and now, there is a dim light on the shower (when the pull is on), but this goes out when the shower is switched on and still no water.

    Can anyone suggest anything? Should I change the pull switch?

    watched England win, then went to get a new pull switch and hey presto, works a treat.

    Thanks very much.
