My single moen posi temp shower knob wil not completely turn off my water. In the closed position it still runs a slow stream of water.


Remove the handle and see if it will turn off without the handle and if it will reposition the handle alignment and your good to go. If no the cartridge will need to be replaced.

Triton t80si shower is very hot even on a low setting then fluctuates between hot & cold, pressure switch is not activating but pressure seems low any advise will be gratefully received.


If the water temp is fluctuating from very hot and cool the problem could lie with a blockage in the inlet to the shower, scale inside the heater can, shower hose needs replacing or the shower head needs to be cleaned The problem is a "slowing" of the water across the heating elements which causes the water to pick up too much heat

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.


Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

Shower faucet does not switch to hot.


Hi,

This has happened to me in the past and had exactly the same symptoms but with a different valve. Before trying the below, it may make sense to be 100% sure that hot water is definitely getting to the valve .. can you get access to touch the hot feed pipe to make sure that it is in fact the valve at fault.

The following could be the issue:

1. The shower valve has a bit of dirt or gunk in it and is unable to allow the hot water through. It can happen with a very small amnount of dirt and is a real pain as it requires disassemble of the entire valve assembly.

2. The valve has failed and needs to be replaced - This was the solution to mine and was also significant in terms of effort.

Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!

When the water is turned to hot, it slows down and stops. Plenty of cold water, though.Valve is less than 3 years old.


This model of shower control is a "balanced flow system." This means that water pressure from both sides of the control is equalized by the control.

There is likely something restricting the flow of hot water into the control.

You might try this......

Turn off the water suppling the shower (turn off the water main if nessacary)

Remove the cartriage from the control

remove any visable debris

briefly turn the water on (just a second at the the most) *** make sure the curtain or door is closed first as there will be alot of water coming out of the control itself... Be prepared to clean up some water

reinstall the cartriage

if this does not solve the problem you might consider replacing the cartriage

you might also find that Moen has more helpful info their phone # is 800-289-6636 they have been very helpful the few times i've called

I have a new moen single handle shower faucet that is only giving one temp of water (cold). Only if I have it on very slow will I feel hot water. Any idea how to fix


Did the hot water shut off get turned back on fully after the change? Is the hot water line kinked under the sink? Is the hot water shut off valve working?

Doesn't let any hot water through


You need to check the age of your water heater. If it is pretty old, it can be sloughing off debris that can get caught in the hot side of the faucet. You will need to turn the water off to the unit, remove the guts. While someone is turning the water on slowely, flush out the the valve. Take a flashlight and check for debris that is caught. I have spent a few hours digging out debris from water heaters before. After you have done this and your still not getting water, check the scald gaurd for the right temp. Typically these don't just "jump" out of adjustment on their own because they have a small retaining washer that holds them in place. I doubt it is the scald guard if everything was working just fine before. Plus, the bath faucet has the most flow than any other faucet in the house so this will be the first place that debris will usually travel. Good luck
