The temperature is adjustable. The valve has a disc you pull off the front of valve and then rotate the seat I believe counter-clockwise. If you get the paperwork for this valve from moen it is very explanatory. I can help further if needed, Let me know!

Pull apart the front of the valve and there is a limiter that is set to limit hte hot water, you need to adjust that limiter. I find many valves are shipped with teh setting too cold.

On your single handle the first thing you do is remove the handle. To do this locate allen set screw on handle and select the right size allen wrench to fit it. Loosen set screw and pull handle out away from wall to remove it. There should be a plastic disc on the handle stem, slid it out to remove it.Remove chrome sleeve..On valve body there are marking that show hot or cold settings. Seperate teeth on geared flanges and rotate set stop toward h mark on valve body. Each tooth will change temperature about three degrees. Make trial setting and reassemble and try it out. If you want it hotter just repeat adjustments. If you try to go to far you will not be able to mesh gears,simply back off alittle bit and try again.Hope this helps you. Thanks

SOURCE: I am not getting any
I'm not familiar with the Ace Hardware shower faucets, but I do know that this problem is caused by a fault in the cartridge. Replacing the cartridge is a simple procedure. First goto Ace (in this case) and see if you can get a new cartridge. You will have to shutoff the main water shutoff to perform this.
Your handle should have a pop out cap in the front facing you. You need to pry this out.
Then, you should see a philips screw in the center. Unscrew this.(Some handles also have a small hex screw on one of the sides of the handle. Look for this)
Again, I'm not familiar with Ace's shower faucets, but at this point, normally you'll see a stem which is part of the cartridge. You will need to remove this (usually with a wrench-lefty loosy) and swap out that part. Put everything back together and you should be fine.
(The reason this problem usually happens is that there is a safety tab (on the cartridge) set by the previous installer to not let the "user" go beyond a certain temperature as to not scald themselves. If this tab has shifted, worn, or broken, this problem can arise.)
Hope this helps!
