Thermostatic Valve Shuts Down on Full Volume

Our shower's Altman's thermostatic valve's performance has changed.  Originally, you could turn it fully on.  Now, after the water gets to the temperature it's set for, it shudders and the water stops flowing.  It will start again, but not in the fully on position.  Solution...besides don't turn it on fully?

I would check the strainers/filters becuase clogged strainers can lead to decrreased water pressure and therefore improer mixing... there may be strainers at the supply valves, at the intake to the faucet and the cartridge...

I have a Jalco 3/4" thermostatic mixing valve that I just installed to relace one that leaked. The water comes out fine but I can't get it to mix when I turn the knob -- it either comes out all cold or all hot. Solution?

    I called the shop that I bought the mixing valve from (The Chicago Faucet Shoppe) and they told me the same thing. I removed the mixing valve, cleaned it and reinstalled it. It still didn't work. I went back to The Faucet Shoppe and exchanged the mixing valve (even though the very knowledgeable salesperson said that the problem wasn't the valve) and installed it. It still doesn't work. Is it possible that it is incompatable with my shower tower or is there somethign else I should try?

One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

The thermostatic stop is set too low. Havent set a grohe before but most other thermostatic shower valves work similar. pull off the handle(however a grohe handle comes off . . ) there should be a notched ring or stop which keeps the handle from going all the way hot. pull out the ring and turn it a few teeth hotter put back and reinstall handle try water temp and adjust again if necessary.
