Re: trouble to have hot water continiusly
Hi there well it seems from what you have written you must of stopped the hot water at some point to remove the valve components & to replace them, from the small amount of info you have given I suspect its an air lock in the hot water supply pipe somewhere?
If this is the problem you might find its affecting the other hot taps possibly? if your able to narrow it down to a single appliance, then it could be localised.
Now the air lock can be removed if it s as we suggested. Do you have a wet & dry vacuum if so run the tap closest on the hot then put the wet vac around the tap & turn it on for a few secs being careful not to get scalding water on you? this will hopefully move the airlock & get you back in business?
If not then post some more info & I will see what i can do for you....good luck

Faucet may have scale desposits on cold water side that would restrict flow. The shut-off valve for the cold may not be opened fully. If a saddle valve for refrigerator ice water was installed, it may block off flow for cold water. Check these items first, then ask more questions.
First turn off the shut-off valves and remove the Forte faucet inlet hose from the cold water line. Then put a temporary inlet hose on that shut-off valve. Test how much water flows into a bucket when you open the valve. Assuming that you had good flow from the cold water shut-off valve through the supply hose, a trickle flow on one side suggests the cartridge plunger (mixing valve) or the inlet hose is blocked or damaged. Since this is a new unit, I'd recommend you replace the faucet. The best option may be to take it to the place where it was purchased (depending on the return policy).
I hope this helps and wish that I had better news for you.
Check the hot water shut off valve, when the washer fails sometimes the valve itself sticks closed, and sometimes the washer breaks up and clogs water passageways down stream...
To test, pull the hose off of the hot water shut off valve, open the valve and see if you have water flow. (route hose into a bucket, you need more that a small amount of water.....
If you have good water flow from the shut off valve, then you likely have a particle that has lodged in the passageways of the faucet. Reverse flow with air pressure and see what you get out....
There is a restriction in the valve or the stop from supply is restricted,check stop at sink to make sure it is opened all the way,if it is then turn off water supply disconnect hot water to faucet take container open valve slowly to see if it is restricted,if that is open and water flow is good.Then it is in the faucet you must then disassemble hot side cartridge and see if there is some type of blockage if none visible the with hot side disassembled slowly open valve to see if you can flush out any foreign matter (note the way it is disassembled so you can reinstall exactly how if was taken out to avoid any reassembly problems).
first check that there are no kinks in the hoses if they are alright it is either a blocked restrictor in the tap or a fault with a tempering valve this valve will be located away from the tap and is what mixes hot and cold water together so that the hot water isn't too hot, in the inlets to the valve are strainers that get blocked clean them out and see how you go
'DO NOT REMOVE"! lol JUST KIDDING. >You may need to remove again to find out why the valve seat is not sealing In fact, expect that you will. The grit is white in color? did you see any special washers or seals in the DNR zone? wHEN REINSTALLING THE VALE BODY, YHE STEM SHOULD BE ALL THE WAY OPEN . cLOSE THE VALVE ONLY AFTER ALL IS IN PLACE. AND YOU NEED An INLINE STRAINER IN YOUR WATER SYSTEM.. gOOD lUCK _nED_
if this is the faucet in picture, turn off water, pull out cartridge and inspect for any debris in cartridge or valve body, if not, turn on hot water to see if water is getting through valve body. May have kinked line or debris from or in angle stop line.
If this occurs after you were able to get hot water to flow from the hot side then I suspect that it is a piece of debriis that has found its way to block the port opening. Remove the acess panel to the valve shut the water supply off to the tub valve using the handles only first on the valve. With the access panel removed tak e a bucket or other similar container and remove the hot water tubing from the spout. Once that is accomplished stick the tube into the container and turn the hot lever on. This should blow out any debris that may exist. Reassemble the valvle. If this did not work remove both the cold and hot feed tubes from the spout and use an air compressor to blow the spout out. If neither of these worked you will probably need to call a serviceman to resolve as other options require cutting the hot supply to the handle and may require special tools that you may not have handy.
