Thermostatic Cartridge stuck on super hot water

Postby dissander » Sun Jul 16, 2017 9:45 am

I have an aqualusso Shower Cabin. The thermostatic knob is stuck on super hot water. I believe it is due to build-up of limescale. I have installed a water softener, hoping that in time the softener would dissolve the limescale, but no joy. How can I remove the limescale please? The knob won't even come off even after removing the small screw that holds it. I have been told to soak in vinegar, but I cannot think of how to do so, considering that the knobs are place vertically.
Thank you. Much appreciated.

Simply Build It

Have you tried any commercial products? Cillit bang and the like have usually worked quite well in my experience. Is there no way you can get it off at all?
