Bath tub faucet will only run hot.

I have a single handle valve that turns counter clockwise. When you turn water on you cycle through cold water first and the further you turn it the more hot water you add with it. There is no cold water coming through just the hot.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

If this is a Moen posi temp valve you may need to adjust the temperature limit stop. It is located under the handle. Usualy a plastic peice with grooves in it so it fits in another peice in the valve. If I remember right you pull this peice out and turn it counter clockwise to get more hot water. Do this in small increments and reassemble and test. I hope this helps.

I have A whirlpool hot water heater I can get hot water downstairs but not upstairs through the shower and tub


Upstairs do you get hot water to your sink faucet. If you do this indicates to me that the temperature valve in your Shower & Tub may need to be adjusted.

For single handle please remove handle to gain access to dial that adjusts hot & cold water mixing.
Remember where it is and take it out and replace about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise and reinstall and try.

It is a plastic adjustment dial that will slide off after the handle is removed.

Trace lines if possible to assure correct pipe's are connected to valve.

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.


Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

Bath tub faucet will only run hot. Just started


It sounds like the seals are going bad. Moen is probably rebuildable. You can go to a Menards and ask if they have the replacement guts for your particular model.

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.

You will find a quicker answer and free parts for your bath room faucet at link above . I am sure it is the mixer valve assembly. If you are not a plumber I suggest a pro be called.

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved
