Stuart Turner Showremate - faulty pump

Hi all,

I've got a stuart Turner Showermate 1.4 bar twin shower than I inherited when I bought my house. It ran completly fine for 2 years but is now cutting out every few seconds. The water flow remains, it's just the acutal shower pump stops (goes silent) then starts again, doing that, refusing to stay on for longer than 10-15 seconds at a time.

I've called Stuart Turner ltd and they said it sounds like it could be the PCB and to try the 'magnet' trick - so I've tried holding a small magnet to the grey boxes on the sides of the pump but wasn't really sure what I was doing or what was meant to happen! ( :oops: )

Anyone help? Stuart Turner also suggested getting a PCB from them and replacing myself (when i say 'myself' I mean my brother in law!) do you think I should try that first? is it easy?

Not even sure who I should call out anyway - I rang a plumber and he said they don't do 'pumps' as that's electrical! ARG!

ANY advice/help gratefully received!

easy way is to remove the grey cover and bridge the connections
s1 to 1 and s2 to s2 if it keeps running with the shower on then the reed switchs will be faulty.
if it still does it the pcb is more likely faulty
Hi all,

I've changed the PCB - and I'm still getting the same problem! HELP

Bridging the connections? Not sure what you mean by that?
