This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.

SOURCE: Pressure problem with Kohler shower faucet??

Hi pglaw,

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.

If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.

Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil

Sounds like it was installed upside down or the cartridge is installed improperly

SOURCE: No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet

Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

Remove the handle by loosening the screw near the bottom. You should see a plastic ring, probably green, that is the hot water safety. Adjust it so that the handle will turn further for more hot water. It most likely pulls out, then turn it left, reinsert and reattach the handle.

No and you can thank you government rep next time you see or talk to him for this. The valve is set to give no more than 110 to 115 degree water and cannot be changed. If you want hotter water you will need to install a non-scald faucet. Now if you are not getting to the 110 degree mark then you will need to disassemble the valve body and look for debris in the hot water inlet side.

Now when it is apart turn the water on low and flush the piping out before putting it back together.

Balancing valves replaced but showerhead still leaking


If the faucet dribbles from the spout one of the valves leaks. the way to find out wich one is to turn off one of the angle stops under the sink and if the problem goes away that side is the culprit, if not it is the other side and you may need a new stem.

Sensitive Temp adjustment through shower.


Pull the trim off of the valve and you will see a 1 inch diameter flat screw, unscrew that and clean it out and try it again. If rinsing it doesn't work you may need to replace it. It is called a balancing caulk.

Kohler shower facuet pressure balancing problem?


ever since the pressure balancing regulations came out for shower valves, they have went from simple to very complicated devices. sounds as if some foreign material caused the valve to stop working. that valve is quit difficult to reassemble correctly because there is only one way it works and can be assemmbled many ways that do not work concerning alignment of the ports. if you dissassemble it and check that all the moving parts are functioning in the balancing cartridge you can then look closely at the alignment of the ports on the cartridge that the handle is connected to. understanding how the port align as the handle is turned should assist you in assembling it correctly......hope this helps.
