Grohe 47600000: Temperature and Flow Rate Problems

The Grohe 47600000 controls the shower’s temperature and water flow rate. Through years of use, the abrasive nature of limescale can damage the cartridge piston and its parts.

 

When the Grohmaster Avensys has difficulty (or can no longer) adjust shower water temperature/flow a replacement Grohe 47600000 thermostatic cartridge may get the shower to function like before.

 

Opening the valve:

- Remove the "Grohe" button and loosen the screw using a screwdriver.

- Undo the fastening set and remove the cover ring and stop ring.

- A 30mm spanner is used to unscrew the faulty Grohe cartridge.

 

Calibration:

Insert a thin screwdriver in the center of the splines. Turn it clockwise to make the water temperature higher and anti-clockwise to decrease the temperature.
