There are hopefully shutoff valves for this faucet under the sink. If so, make sure both of the valves are open.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

I have been told there is a way to adjust bath tap temperature under the bath is this true? Thanks


is this a standard bath tub?? if so the answer is no only pressure from hot/cold usually thru the access panel other wise you will have to crank up the water heater unless you have an on-demand water heater located near your access panel. which raises a second question. your faucet? is it a single handle for both hot/cold or two individual handles? if its a single handle try opening up your hot water valve in the access panel to allow for more hot water flow and slightly decresing your cold water valve hope this helps good luck!!!!

How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

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.
