Do you have a thermo mixer shower?

Was there any check valves installed on water supply to shower unit? Is there a pump on there? Has this just happened or is it a faulty new installation?

Could be a number of things and with a bit more info I can diagnose and help you remedy.

Airlock or faulty valve on shower itself. Try wet vac to pull air through if this does not work call in a plumber to replace shower valve. Good luck D Oliver
