Adjusting the anti scald is pretty simple on this device. Attached is a photo of breakdown for this. Basically, unscrew the labeled part to access a very small black rubber gasket. Remove the black gasket to gain access to the anti scald part. You have have to use needle nose pliers to remove the black gasket but it does come off. Once you have this part off, you will see the two parts (with teeth like a wheel) that will adjust the hot water levels. Remove the part on top and turn the little "handle" clockwise towards "3'oclock" to make the water hotter. The part itself will not allow you to go past "3 oclock" for safety reasons. adjust anti-scald delta B114900 - adjust-anti-scald-delta-b114900-ucghvzot5faznyh4jdqs4e5n-4-0.jpg

Just installed a delta model #B114900 in a new shower and the hot water does not get real hot. Before we replaced the old one it worked fine

Support Information

This link gets you to owners manual installation.
It wont let me copy diagram.
Step 7
You need to adjust the Rotational Limit Stop
The 1st position is default and allows the least amount of hot water into the mix. As you move it more clockwise it allows more hot water into the flow. If you move it all the way clockwise you have the greatest amount of hot water and run risk of scald.
Basically you have a faucet to help protect from scald if the handle should accidentally get rotated all the way to hot.

The handle stops mid way between hot and cold. The water gets barely lukewarm.

Have you tried adjusting the temp control setting behind the handle. Remove handle and mark the dial or remember where it located and slide it out of place so you can move it counter clock wise maybe a 1/4" turn and put handle on and turn faucet on and check for hotter water.
It is a anti scald valve and it's preset to a certain temperture for safety.

Delta 13022 - Hot water out of the shower is much cooloer than out of the sink faucet. How is the mix of hot & cold controlled?

The Delta shower has a rotational limit stop designed so that when another fixture is activated, such as a toilet or dishwaser, the water does not go to extreme hot or cold. The reason for this is that the Delta shower unit is not pressure balanced or does not contain an anti scald device. The pdf document below will show how to adjust the water tempature if you feel it is too cold. Please use caution as it is probably set the way it is to prevent scalding.

& Single Handle Shower Faucet : how to adjust to get hotter water...

First step remove handle and behind it there is a dial that looks like a gear. Mark where it is and remove it and put back in about a 1/4 to 1/8 turn counter clockwise to increase to hotter temp.

These faucets are equiped with anti scald setting's to protect the public and preset for this reason.

No cold water

Anti Scald Valves have an adjustment under the handle (remove handle) to allow so much hot water in no matter how far handle is turned. Its possible that the adjustment is set to allow only hot water in, this of course defeats the purpose of anti-scalding. Check to see if you can adjust this back. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was of any help.

It will not go all the way over to the left, does not get as hot as I would like

Remove handle , behind it you should see a dail with teeth like a gear remove it and turn counter clockwise maybe 1/4 turn, mark where you start so you will have an idea.

It is a anti scald unit to temper water so you can manually adjust temp.

My delta 132900 gets too hot.

With these Faucets, you can remove the handle and make adjustments to the max Hot water setting (scald guard).

You may also have a faulty or lime-covered cartridge.

SEE THIS SITE for making adjustments/replacing the cartridge.
