This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.
Good Luck, Phil

Just replaced the same exact stems... one seated fine, the other spun and wouldn't turn off. I added an extra washer to that one... it pushes the seat in just a bit further.

Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

Just had this same thing, on this exact faucet. If you still have the manual, it has instructions on how to rotate the valve for back to back installations where one shower has the hot/cold reversed. Our contractor got ours in backwards the first time and I had to call and have them come out and rotate the valve this morning.
