It sounds like you have a faulty thermostat or broken heater element.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

SOURCE: cold water suply filling up header tank in loft thru hot water suply on shower.

hi did you run a seperate cold water supply from the storage tank to the shower pump & also a seperate hot supply from the hot water cylinder, it sounds as though the cold water is crossing into the hot service & pushing its way up to the tank as its the only way it can go, sounds as though the cold water connection to the shower is not tank fed & possibly directly off the water main.?

SOURCE: Shower goes hot and cold

If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

Why is there no cold water coming out of my shower head


if you live some where that gets cold one of your pipes could have frozen. if you can get to the crawl space/basement put a heater down there for a few hours and leave the shower cold water on if the water comes out of the shower your pipes have thowed out. here is a video https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=5&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDMQtwIwBGoVChMIn6q266OQyQIVAs9jCh3O6QFj&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DPbnGn9EG1mw&usg=AFQjCNEMOGXppMYQl-Rcij9L-P36CdC8Rw&bvm=bv.107467506,d.cGc good luck

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

Moen single handled shower the hot water turns cooler then cold after a minute


Your whole house is likely plumbed wrong so that it is impossible to have equal pressures of both hot and cold at your shower. If you had your home plumbed with aquapex using a radiator for the hot water and a radiator for the cold water and have the radiators fed with a 1 inch line you can have close to perfect pressures.

No cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve, when i turn handle to cold I get hot water, when handle is turn to hot i get hot water


Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

yes the hot side could be pluged with something . or cartridge has somthing in it. if the shower is new solder could have got into the valve. you need to make sure the water is turned off the the house and take it apart.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
