Make sure the internal washer is intact and there is no damage to the parts that you are connecting together. Also, do not use too much tape....one or two winds is enough and wind in in the direction of the action of the female connector (clockwise) so you don't bunch it up in one spot.
remove the fitting at the end of the faucet, it just unscrews off the end,, when you replaced this, and had the water off, many times the rust in the pipes will break loose and follow up the faucet , which clogs in the fine screen located in the piece at the end of the spout ,, just clean it out and you should be ok
Hot on left. Cold on right. Some single handle faucets have bleed-over where both hot and cold enter mixing valve each time handle is turned on, even when faucet calls for just cold or just hot. Otherwise maybe a do-it-yourself plumber got pipes backwards... or maybe the tub used to be on other side of wall, and tub was moved during remodeling but pipes were not changed.
To fix problem: First of all, turn off shower faucet. Turn on Hot at sink and put ear against shower faucet listening for sound of water flowing through the mixing valve. If mixing valve is working fine, you need to open wall and investigate more. For example if you have access door, reach in and feel which pipe is hot. Pipes might need to be reversed if problem comes up in home inspection, otherwise the problem will not harm anything.
Verify the cold water outlet has equal pressure as the hot side outlet at the wall. Check the inlet screen on the cold side water line where it attatches to cold water pipe. The screen could be plugged. Then check the cold side hose for any restrictions. Also check if there is a screen on the outlet side of the cold water hose and see if it is plugged. Otherwise the faucet valve is mis-aligned and will need to be rotated and re-tightened to align the valve to the center so both sides have equal water flow.
If you used the teflon tape to seal the threads on the sprayer connection. Make sure the tape is has not blocked the line. Check for any kinks in the hose and it is not pinned against something.
Turn on the cold water and hold the sprayer over the sink and activate. If nothing happens while still holding the sprayer move from cold water to hot. If still no water there maybe something in the line preventing the sprayer from receiving water.
Highly doubt there is anything mechanically wrong but it has happened before. See if you can swap it for a new one.
look under the cap for a screw,see if you can tighten,if no screw under the handle is a plastic piece that is attached to the faucet diverter,this may have broken or the screw has come loose.you may have to replace the handle
No, being reversed wouldn't cause it. The only thing that would happen is the direction you turn your handle to get the desired temp. When you remove fittings from plumbingsupplies, you can break loose deposits that can clog the faucet. If both the hot and the cold water is affected, then remove the arriator and rinse it clean. That is the little filter looking devise at the end of the spout. But if only one of the supplies are affected (hot or cold) then something has broken loose and is stuck within the valve and needs to be cleaned out. You should take the arriator apart piece by piece making sure to note the order in which you take it apart so it's put back in the right order.
the fixture is set up so off is full to right as you go to the left the cycle is cold then hot if you don't understand turn tap all the way to right and turn on main if you need more help please post comment thank you for useing fixya please rate me
