Kohler shower facuet pressure balancing problem?

We have a shower faucet made by Kohler, T15101-4S. One day the water stopped coming out. After replacing the pressure regulator (2 cartridge shape) and the stem adapter, it became erratically. Sometimes water came out even though the handle is turned to off. Sometimes water wouldn't come out. Sometimes the water couldn't be shut off so we had to shut off the main water. I called Kohler. They said it's a water-balancing problem between hot and colder water. How could I fix it? It's also worrisome to see the faucet doesn't have anything to shut off the water mechanically. The water can come out when nobody is at home. Thanks!

    It doesn't look difficult to align the parts. The pressure regulator only goes in one-way and it doesn't move. The stem adapter lines up with the pressure regulator easily. Only the inside of the stem adapter rotates with the handle.

    I was wrong saying that the faucet doesn't have anything to shut off the water mechanically. The stem adapter has two openings that are pressed against a plate to shut off the water. The problem is it doesn't work sometimes. The faucet seems work a few minutes then the water would come up while the faucet is shut off. It's crazy.

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.

If the water is only cool in the shower, it could be the shower valve. However if water is cool at all taps, something is not working on the water heater system.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

the Model number you gave is for a Shower Head what do you mean it doesnt heat... it only conrtols the water temp by BALANCING the hot and cold water inlets does NOT heat anything if your water is cold then check another PLAIN faucet to see if your water is the same temp( cold) if it is the hot water from water HEATER is cold nothing to do with faucets

Can't get cold water


the balancing spool sounds like it is frozen. You need to replace the cartridge. The spool needs to move freely to regulate the water coming through it to keep from scalding a person.

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.
