Slow trickle From Bath Spout After Replacing Kohler Mixing Valve

I replaced the 304-K mixing valve for my Kohler Forte shower set. After turning the water on, it mixes as it should, but when turning the stem to full "OFF", there is a steady trickle of hot water continuing to pour out of the spout. Any ideas?

    I did not replace the brass assembly... Just the two black parts within the unit

    Hey D. Floyd Kolb. How about chilling it with the canned, automated responses?

    I removed the assembly and found that one of the two o-rings on the mixer that seat against the rear supply outlets of the housing had fallen out of place. Problem solved.

SOURCE: Water coming from showerhead and bath spout at same time

Have whoever installed the shower set come back and fix the diverter. It should be a relatively simple adjustment.

SOURCE: 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.

I just installed a Kohler Forte R10412-N-CP. Hot water flow is good. However, very low cold flow. What's wrong


First turn off the shut-off valves and remove the Forte faucet inlet hose from the cold water line. Then put a temporary inlet hose on that shut-off valve. Test how much water flows into a bucket when you open the valve. Assuming that you had good flow from the cold water shut-off valve through the supply hose, a trickle flow on one side suggests the cartridge plunger (mixing valve) or the inlet hose is blocked or damaged. Since this is a new unit, I'd recommend you replace the faucet. The best option may be to take it to the place where it was purchased (depending on the return policy).

I hope this helps and wish that I had better news for you.

If the faucet was working before and then just stopped, it is the mixing valve or a clogged supply line.
turn the water off and remove the mixing valve. Turn the water on and see if you have good flow from both hot and cold ports inside the faucet.
Caution- this procedure can get messy, close the shower curtain or door.
Call Kohler and ask for a new mixing valve for free.

Water start leaking under the house when you pull the deverter up to turn the shower on, its floods out bad!


I'm assuming the leak is in the wall somewhere between the on/off lever or knob and the shower head. It is a good chance that it is the mixing-valve. It could also be where the shower head screws into the drop-eared 90*. If it is the mixing valve, it is either ruined, or a bad seal that might be replaceable. If it is busted piping the wall will have to be opened up to replace it. Good chance that the arm to the shower head is leaking at the threads where it screw into the wall. Good luck.
