Question about Grohe Plumbing

Grohe bath faucet adjustments

When I turn the hot water on the faucet turns itself off. I have to continually turn up the water to keep it going - at least until the water gets hot. The opposite is true of the cold. It's flow tends to increase constantly.

I thought the guts were just worn, so I bought replacements - but still have the same results. I'm sure it's something simple but I've never had a faucet do something like that.

Do you still have the owner's manual of the faucet? if so check under troubleshooting. It sounds like, most grohe products, a pressure problem. Did you check the pressure coming into the house? Do you have a water regulator outside the house? If so check the pressure.

Why do we need to have to continuously adjust the temperature of the water when we're taking a shower. We have a new Rheem gas .hot water tank


It *may* not be a problem with the water heater itself necessarily. When you say "keep adjusting the water temperature when you're taking a shower" I presume you're talking about turning the shower hot/cold knob(s) and not the temp thermostat on the water heater itself.
If so, when it starts to run colder, turn the knob all the way to full hot. Is the water then very hot? If so, the water heater is working fine & doing its job, and the problem is likely to be in the shower faucet mixing valve itself. Sometimes a faulty one will expand the inner seals/cartridge as hot water flows thru it, and starts to (wrongly) restrict the hot water flow, thus causing the constant need to "turn the dial up a notch".

Developed hot running water all the time


If the problem is that there is not enough hot water coming out, or when you can not get the hot water to shut off you may need to replace the cartridge inside the faucet.

I have the same problem and have the fix. There is a water pressure regulator on the bottom of the faucet( under the sink) this part is bad. Grohe will replace it for free. Call Grohe at630=582=7722 tell them the model # of the faucet and the color of the regulator, they will send you a new one for FREE.

The thermostatic stop is set too low. Havent set a grohe before but most other thermostatic shower valves work similar. pull off the handle(however a grohe handle comes off . . ) there should be a notched ring or stop which keeps the handle from going all the way hot. pull out the ring and turn it a few teeth hotter put back and reinstall handle try water temp and adjust again if necessary.

The temperature in my shower is very luke warm only at the shower


Do you mean the other faucets in the house are hot and only the shower is warm? If so there is an anti-scald adjustment on the faucet that needs to be turned up a few notches. Havent adjusted a Grohe faucet but most faucets you rmove the handle and behind the handle is a nothced adjustment ring that prevents the faucet from getting too hot. This ring, or stop, is pulled out and twisted clockwise(or counter clockwise to set higher or lower max temp, then pushed back. maybe you can look up grohe to see which way ring or stop adjusts for hotter water.

Grohe bath faucet adjustments


grohe is a faucet all by itself ,,, I would recomend to have you call there repair dept. and explain this to them, you said you put in the new cartridge and thats about all there is to it, when you put on the handle make sure it is not over tightened, sometimes it pulls on the cartridge and makes it come on by itself good luck

All of a sudden can not get hot water from my Grohe Ladylux plus


I aasume this is single handle

You will need to remove the handle(usually hex screw under lever or bak side covered with small erasure size button

turn water (hot and cold) off under sink

remove the handle

take an adjustible wrench and remove the cartridge it is keyed
so ou can put it back roperly inspect the cartridge for any obstructions

go under sink and slowly turn hot water on and observe if water is coming out of faucet manifold

if water is coming out ok you may have a bad cartridge or had a blockage reinstall cartridge(after youturned water off

turn hot and cold water on under sink and try again

if it works great if not I suggest you take artridge out and replace
