Slow stream In Shower After Replacing Kohler Mixing Valve

I replaced my Kohler 304K Rite Temp assembly for my Kohler Forte Shower set. After turning the water main back on, the valve mixes as it should, but when I turn the valve stem to the full "OFF" position, there is a light, but steady stream of hot water continuing to pour through the spout. Any ideas?

SOURCE: I have a Kohler

Hi,
The problem is that the pressure balance unit is stuck...therefore no hot water...it is not sensing the cold water pressure....so it will not allow hot water to flow...
The lack of use is actually a bad thing as the rubber and such can adhere to the metal and stick the unit...
You maybe able to free it up, but it probably will never work correctly...
I would just replace the pressure balance unit to be sure that it is working correctly and safely...

Kohler rite temp with diverter. When the tub is turned on water leaks out the shower head. Changed the diverter didn't fix problem.


You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.

Very little cold water from shower valve


If this is a new installation and has always beenj this way, then I would suspect that there may be an obstruction in the cold water line leading to the valve. Or something stuck in the valve at the point where the cold water is connected. If someone has worked on thius valve recently , then I would suspect that they got the valve cartridge in backwards, If the catridge is not placed in the valve correctly the opperation is messed up.

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.

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

No water coming out of my Kohler Forte R10275-4-BN shower valve


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

Good Luck, Phil
