    Same problem here. Happens sporadically and is difficult to recreate. Water pressure seems fine.

The reason behind this is because when its part opened theres not enough pressure to keep it open, but when you open it highre it stays open, another reason could be due to the water outlet strainer being blocked, remove this & give it a clean out & see how it goes?

I am getting no water from the hot side of all my faucets cold water works fine


Sounds like the water inlet valve to your hot water heater has been closed (turned off) If the tank has no water coming in, it can't put anything out.

Low water pressure from moen shower faucet


I'm slightly in the dark on this because I have no idea which model moen shower valve do you have? Here's a shot in the dark....single lever anti-scald tub and shower valves, moen brand in fact, prevent scalding by a means of a cog or two, (a cog is a flat metal piece, with an arm sticking out on a 90 degree angle, and has a star shaped cut out in it's center. That star shaped cut out fits perfectly over and on to the center stem of the valve. These cogs are located under the handle. These two cogs are what limit the handle from opening completely counter clockwise. When the handle is at it's most open counter clockwise position....the port that allows hot water to enter the valve and come out of the shower head is at it most open position. Those two cogs are what prevents the hot port from being fully open by means of the 90 degree arms sticking out and under the handle. The handle has two flat surfaced walls that catch on those arms sticking out from those cogs under the handle. You have to position the cogs on the spindle, (valve stem), in a position that will stop the handle short of full counter clockwise to prevent the shower valve from opening enough to allow enough hot water to pass through the port to possibly scald a person while showering. It's a real tricky process setting those cogs to a position so that when your valve stops it's counter clockwise rotation, (which is how the valve it turned on), it stops in a position that only allows enough hot water to flow that mixes to be a nice warm shower water temperature. You see, with the hot water flow limited, there is little chance you will ever be burned by your shower water (thus...anti scald mode is in operation).....
Now here's the kicker.....When soldering the connections on your shower valve, (during the installation process), the installer must remove the cartridge from the valve body to prevent melting it with his torch while soldering the joints. When that cartridge is removed, those two cogs hang loose and slide off the spline. And when they are removed, it is quite a chore to place them back into the position they are intended to be placed in. and..WHEN THE COGS ARE RE-PLACED IN A CERTAIN (WRONG)POSITION, IT FORCES THE HANDLE IN A POSITION THAT IS WRONG, AND WON'T ALLOW THE HANDLE TO REST IN THE OFF POSITION. The cog arms are preventing the handle from rotating to a completely closed position. Which causes exactly what I think you are experiencing. When the main water valve is turned back on....you can't stop the water from flowing through your newly installed shower valve. Those cogs...in the wrong position on the spline....will not allow the handle to spin to the correct point of the off position.
You have to remove your handle, slide the two cogs off of the spline, then re-place the handle on the spline and turn it until the water stops flowing out of the shower head....now pull the handle back off....look at the underside of the handle....you will see a couple of walls within the open underside. those walls are what the arms on the cogs hit to stop the rotation of the handle....Now hold your handle in front of yourself and face the shower valve....now position the lever on the handle straight down....now lean the handle back to view the positions of those two walls on the underside of the handle.....now imagine those two arms on the cogs sticking out in the area between those to walls ....with one arm positioned to stop the handle in the position with the lever straight down....then imagine the other arm sticking out in a position somewhere around 11 o'clock, (if you look at it like a clock), .....so now the first arm is around 6 o'clock and the other at 11.....now slide the handle onto the spline, with the lever down .....then test the valve by turning counter clockwise to turn it on. ....turn it until it is stopped by the cog arm....now feel your water temperature....if it's good...then turn the handle clockwise to the off position....is it all the way off? if not, pull the handle off...adjust the 6 o'clock cog arm back toward the 7 o'clock position, just one spline ....replace the handle and try again.....that should fix the off position....if you need the water a little warmer, move the 11 o'clock cog arm toward the 10 o'clock position a position or two....to get a cooler mix on your water....move the 11 o'clock arm the opposite direction.... WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED RE-CALIBRATING THE VALVE....SECURE THE HANDLE AND COVER BUTTON BACK IN PLACE AND CALL IT GOOD...IF YOU DIDN'T DROP THE HANDLE SCREW OR ONE OF THE COGS DOWN THE DRAIN......OOPS...SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED TO PLACE A TOWEL OVER THE DRAIN WHEN YOU DIS-ASSEMBLE YOUR SHOWER VALVE...I hope your not corn fused by my lengthy instructions....and I hope you understood the terms "cog"(the two removable metallic pieces that slide on and off the center spline), -"spline"(the metallic stem sticking out of the center of the valve, it has gears all around it) -"handle lever"(the portion of the handle that protrudes outward, away from the center) -"walls on the underside of the handle"(the two flat pieces molded into the underside of the handle that act as stops by not being able to spin past the protruding arms of the cogs)...Good luck my friend and remember to always work safely....

Fixed leaking faucet, now handles leak at the base & the water pressure is low


No, air can't get trapped in there. I don't think you did anything wrong. It sounds like the valve or internal parts are worn more than new washers take up for. Tightening down the valve just reduced travel for valve to open fully. Can't think of a fix; where's that joe da plumber?

The lever that turns the water on doesn't stay up. Can't lift the handle halfway to get a little water because the handle falls to the off position.


Sounds like the collar that locks down the stem is in need of tighting to get some resistance to hold handle in place.
Remove handle to acces this collar and to tighten.

Single handle faucet and handle keeps falling open doesnt stay up when turned off?


Sounds like a problem with the spring pressure on the ball or the ball itself. Try removing the handle from the stem. Usually a phillips screw underneath a snap on button in the center of the handle. Remove the screw and wiggle the handle off the stem. There should be a threaded collar on the top of the faucet body which exerts pressure downwards on the ball retainer and the ball itself. Try tightening this collar up "clockwise" a little bit and see if that stiffens the stem up to the point that the handle will stay in position. If this fails install a new rebuild kit. (ball, seats, o rings, and springs). It's helpful to know the faucet manufacturer before you go to the hardware store. Also helpful to have the old parts in hand to match up to the new kit. Note that you may have leftover parts from the kit as they often cover more than one model. You may find exploded parts diagrams on the manufacturers website to assist in disassembly. For example:

http://www.deltafaucet.com/customersupport/troubleshoot/bath-single-handle.html

Be sure to turn both hot and cold water supplies off before disassembly. Also, throw a towel or rag in the bottom of the sink to block the drain opening to prevent losing small parts down the drain. Generally, all you need in the way of tools is a phillips screwdriver and a pair of chanellock pliers. Another rag can be handy for protecting shiny finishes from the teeth on the pliers. If by chance you still have proof and place of original purchase, most modern faucets carry a life time warranty and will be replaced by the manufacturer or at least provide replacement parts free of charge. Though, generally, I find it far easier to replace parts rather than the whole faucet.

Our shower knob will turn all the way to hot, but the water won't get hot. The rest of the house has hot water. Think something inside the knob is not turning over to hot. How would I fix this??


the anti scold control, must be adjusted.You need to turn the water off for this,remove the handle,and the chrome sleeve,it is usually located just under the handle

There should be an Allen screw on the underside of the handle. Loosen it to take the handle off, then tighten up the packing nut with a channel-lock wrench.

Cold side of faucet, when turned on, occasionally stops flowing.


Sounds like the valve is comming apart internally. This allows the water to get into places it shouldn't and the water pressure forces the valve closed even though the handle is in the open position. Take it apart and check for loose screws and broken pieces. Lowes or Home Depot should have parts. Don't forget to shut off the valve below the faucet (if the plumber installed one) if not one will have ot shut off incomeing water supply.
