When the power light on your Mira Advance shower is flashing, it typically indicates an issue with the power supply or the shower unit itself. Here are a few possible explanations for this problem:
- Power Supply Interruption: The flashing light could indicate a disruption in the power supply to your shower. Check if there has been a power outage or if the circuit breaker has tripped. Resetting the breaker or restoring the power supply should resolve the issue.
- Low Water Pressure: In some cases, low water pressure can trigger the power light to flash. Insufficient water flow might be caused by a blocked or clogged showerhead, a faulty valve, or a problem with the water supply. Clean or replace the shower head and check the valves to ensure proper water flow.
- Temperature Sensor Error: The flashing light might also indicate an issue with the temperature sensor. The sensor is responsible for regulating the water temperature. If it malfunctions or gets damaged, the power light may start flashing. Contact a professional plumber or the manufacturer for assistance in diagnosing and repairing the temperature sensor.
- Electrical Fault: A flashing power light could be a sign of an electrical fault within the shower unit. Faulty wiring or a malfunctioning internal component might be causing the issue. In this case, it is recommended to seek the help of a qualified electrician or contact the manufacturer for guidance.
- Overheating Protection: Some Mira Advance showers are equipped with a built-in overheating protection mechanism. If the water temperature exceeds a certain threshold, the power light may start flashing to indicate a potential safety hazard. Check if the water temperature is set too high and adjust it accordingly.
