    all of a sudden the cold water on my Moen single lever kitchen faucet is not working. I can only get warm to hot water from it. What's up with that?

    Just to clarify, you have it listed as your kitchen sink but the subject is under a listing for a bathroom shower body.

I would check the strainers on the intake and the faucet spout. It is possible that sediment has built up and now is impacting thermostatic flow from the faucet... if one side is clogged its hard for the faucet to balance... try the stainer on the spout and any other strainers that may be on the supply hoses, valves, intake, etc...

I'm runnin out of hot water in minutes.Baseboard is fine.The hot water pipe off the boiler is hot and it goes thru a dial or adjuster to the taps.And it's warm/cold after that dial. Where do I start?


that adjuster is there to reduce the water temperature so that scalding from boiling water doesn't occur
they can be adjust but if this problem has come in after a period of time then the sensor wax inside the adjuster is not as it should be.
they do fail and need replacing
most plumbers put the unit on the hot water outlet because they are lazy as the standard says that it is primarily for use on the shower, bath, basin systems and wash machines and kitchen sink are not required to be temp controlled.

Hot water in kitchen only froze


good idea to let the cold water to run a bit to stop freezing up . Pity that you didn't do the same with the hot water. There is only hot water in the tank but the water in the hot water pipes will freeze as the heat goes out of the pipes. (Always to have to wait for the hot water to come through when you use the shower or bath.) The water will freeze up right back to the hot water tank

sounds like a bad faucet//only if you had good pressure before it was installed..to cheaply test..take the hot water off from the shutoff valve and spray it into a milk jug to see if theres good flow..then replace the faucet assmbly..dont forget to turn off the shutoff valve first..or you will get a watery surprise!

All of a sudden can not get hot water from my Grohe Ladylux plus


I aasume this is single handle

You will need to remove the handle(usually hex screw under lever or bak side covered with small erasure size button

turn water (hot and cold) off under sink

remove the handle

take an adjustible wrench and remove the cartridge it is keyed
so ou can put it back roperly inspect the cartridge for any obstructions

go under sink and slowly turn hot water on and observe if water is coming out of faucet manifold

if water is coming out ok you may have a bad cartridge or had a blockage reinstall cartridge(after youturned water off

turn hot and cold water on under sink and try again

if it works great if not I suggest you take artridge out and replace

Water is either hot or cold - no in between.


I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.

So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?
