Hi All

I am new to the forum

I bought a 2005 Jurgens exclusive. The geyser water is very hot (sounds like it's boiling). I cannot see a temperature control on it. I have only used it on electricity. Can anyone tell me how to adjust the temperature down.

many thanks

Dave

Hello Dave and welcome to the forum.

You can refer to this topic which shows the position of the 2 thermostats. When the water sound like it is boiling locate the one that should open at 65 degrees.

https://www.caravanparks.com/35.Caravan-Camping-Forums-Jurgens-Classique-Geyser-.htm?forumaction=1&loadcategory=1012&loadpost=250156745&highlight=Jurgens%20Classique%20Geyser%20#ForumsAnchor

You can also get the topic by searching under the subject for <<<Classique geyser>>> on the left hand side on the forum landing page.

  • Switch off the power to the caravan and test with a multimeter if the switch is open circuit as it should be. It is always better to disconnect one of the 2 leads when you do the test.
  • You can also remove both the thermostats and test each one with a piece of wire attached to the 2 points and heat up in a kettle. As indicated the one opens at 65 degrees and the second one at 90.
  • These 2 unit MUST disconnect the power to the element.
  • If in doubt get someone to help to do the above tests.

As water cools quite quick it might be better to test the 90 degree thermostat after removal.

I hope this helps.

Hi John. Welcome to the forum.

So from Danie's feedback you will find that there is no way to adjust the temperature on the geyser. It is regulated by the 2 thermostats.

Sometimes I think that this Hansen Geyser is even a better option in a normal home.

  • It only heats up 19 liters at a time. And that within 20 min
  • You can use it on gas or 220 Volt. With no worries of eishcom power

One major issue its more expensive than a normal large geyser.

Ek het na ek die Exclusive by Hansen gaan aanklop want volgens my was die Classique sin warmer gewees en hulle het gesê jy kan niks doen nie en dit behoort die selfde temp. te wees ?

Oppad na die volgende kamp.

Willem ek het tans ook 'n Hansen in sie Maia en hy maak hel warm nes die Classique sin.

Dalk net die boonste termostaat switch vervang.  Hy sit dalk te gou af.

Volgens die aanduiding is die vaste stelling 65 en dit is vrek warm. Willem dalk kan jy jou warm water net toets en sien of jy naby 60 uitkom. Daai termostate is nie duur nie. Iemand het wel op 'n vorige draad die pryse aangedui.
