Triton power shower running scalding hot

I haven't touched any of the controls but the shower will only run very hot. It's as though the cold water isn't getting through.
Is this a job for a plumber or could I try and fix it myself?

A few possibles ...

Check that the Stop Tap is fully open

Check that the sprayplate of the showerhead is clean. Check if an acceptable temperature is achieved by removing the showerhead from the shower hose

Check the internal lining of the shower hose is not collapsed

If the shower is delivering a flow of less than 5 litres/minute on a temperature setting of ’1′, then check for blockages in the inlet filter. Use a bucket and stopwatch to check flow rate
