It sounds as though the valve is not closing and opening properly. I would have a proffesional come out to have a look. I could also be the control board not working correctly or a combination of both.

pull the handle off and there is a black dial you can pull out and readjust on the shaft of the cartridge that will allow you to have cooler and hotter settings. it's black plastic and has little splines on it . the more you go one way the hotter it gets and the same the other way gets cooler

the diverter on the tub spout is bad you need to replace the tub spout or the pull up diverter if its a separate piece if you have the owners manual with a parts diagram you can order it on line from the manufacturer or a plumbing supply store. you will need to unscrew the tub spoup from the wall to do this use a broom handle or something similar inserted inside the spout and turn it to the left to remove it from the wall

Chances are that the thermostatic motor or element is failing and probably needs to be replaced. It will be necessary to turn off the water (hot and cold) to the shower valve, remove the handle, maybe the decorative plate (will depend on your model), then remove the valve assembly. If it's a cartridge, you willl need to remove the center clip and pulll the unit out with a pair of pliers. They do make a removal tool, but you may not need it. If the valve is a flange type, you will probably need to remove three to four screws and then genetly pry the valve out of its mounting. With this type of valve, there may be an "O" ring around the assembly that should be replaced so keep that in mind.
Some thermostatic valves can be repaired by replacing their individual components. Again, it will depend on your model.
Take the assembly to your local hardware or home improvement center along with as much information as you can, and have them match up the part(s).
Re-assemble the valve, then turn the water on before you re-install any handles or plates and check for leaks as well as proper operation. You can just slip the handle over the valve stem to test.
