    Hi all,

    I wondered if someone could help me with finding a solution to my shower problem please?
    I have a Triton Rapide R2 which has been installed for approx. 2 years or so.
    It has 3 heat settings (cold, warm & hot) plus a temperature control setting.
    It runs fine on cold & warm but as soon as the hot seting is selected, it trips out.
    I've tried replacing the Thermal cut out but still the same.
    Any ideas?

    I had a thought that it could be limescale in the system but unsure how I could flush/descale the heater can??

    Any help would be great.
    Cheers,
    Andy

    is it tripping the main fuse ?

    more likely a heating element has failed.
    do a resistance test with a multi meter on both the elements.
    you should get a reading of 10-18 ohms each pair.

    is this the same fault you had in 2009 ?

    It is tripping the main fuse, yes.
    It runs ok on warm but it trips the mains fuse even when switching it off.

    I replaced an old shower around 2009, come to think of it, it may have been a similar problem.
