Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....

1 Answer

Not alot of hot water?

The other day I asked about what I thought were 3175 Moen shower head valves, after looking around online I think what I have are showhouse Moen S932 valves, If there is a 180 degree of travel in the handle I only have hot water for the last 5 degrees of rotation, It's cold cold cold, then hot, I know when I remove the face plate and knob I see what looks like a set screw on each inlet, just wondering if those regulate the amount of water coming in each side, and where they should be set.....thanks again

1st Check the temperature restricting coller behind the cover under the handle. It is used to restrict the flow of hot water to stop you from being scaulded.
2nd Those set screws will control the flow. Check to ensure both sides are open the same amount of turns. If the water pressure is good turn in the cold side.

We have a Moen shower valve in our motor home and we are not getting any hot water. It has worked fine for the sence it was new. It;s a 2007


Assuming that you have hot water everywhere else my thoughts are that you have a small bit of rust,sediment or other foreign matter in the control cartridge. It's possible that the scald guard feature of the faucet has slipped so it's not allowing hot water to get thru. Either way if you purchased this new moen will provide replacement parts free.If you are mechanically inclined you can perform these repairs yourself and save significantly.Last time I checked the cartridge,scald guard balancing valve are all one part and cost about ninty bucks. Prepare to be patient and call 1-800-BUY-MOEN. You will need the model number,approx. age and explanation of your problem.Good luck. Hope this is of some help to you. Thanks.P:S they will generally provide installation,adjustment instructions and trouble shooting tips if you ask.

Hot water not working - no shutoff valve in line, and hotwater works at sink.


From what you've described, it's got to be a block between the main supply line and the shower head.

If you have never used this shower after its installation, it's possible that the temperature limit stop is set too low.

Otherwise, either the hot water valve or the balance spool need maintenance. The instructions on pages 4-6 of the link below should be helpful for correcting the problem.

Moen T2113 shower faucet no hot water


You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.

I just installed a new cartridge in a moen single handle bathroom faucet. Works great except no hot water. The hot water valve is turned all the way on.


try and pull the cartridge out and look in there with a flash light and make sure there isn't any think lodged in the hot water side of the faucet, you might even want to leave the cartridge out and turn the water back on to try and flush it out. alot of times rubber from the old cartridge gets stuck in there as you are pulling the old one out especially if it's stuck in there good

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.
