    The problem is with the faucet itself, as all other faucets run very hot water.
    How do we adjust the safety guard on the shower faucet to run hotter water. It is a Pfister Faucet

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

    do you have to turn the temp. adjustment valve?

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

    yes we agetting cold water, just the hot water is not hot enough

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

    This is a brand new shower faucet. How do you reset the preset factory temperature level for hot water?

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

    This is a single handle faucet new from the store. We just need to know how to adjust pre-set the hot water level higher

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

    There appears to be adequate pressure, just the water is not hot enought

  • rodewalt Feb 27, 2009

I installed a similar shower head, it was not adjusted properly from the box, I had to pull the handle off and readjust the flow of hot and cold through the head depending on the position of the handle, the manufacturer's hot line number can assist u with this adjustment, that is who I called and they talked me through it.

On some models there is a button you need to press in order to get the hottest water to come out, have a look, try pressing the adjuster, or pulling it a little, etc.

Hi..this problem is due to the following reason.It happens
all the time.The rubber-like washer that seals the hot water
has gotten stuck to the valve seat or something similar.
You need to turn off the hot water supply and unscrew the
hot water faucet stem.You'll probably find the stem has
unscrewed from the valve seat.Or the washer is stuck.
It needs the obvious TLC or R&R.Take the cruddy parts
to the hardware store.They usually have a whole wall of
similar looking valves and washers.
check this out..
thank u..

Hi!

Try using hot limit stop. Did you turn the hot water shutoff back on?

Also check valve located directly under the cartridge. First, shut the water off at the stops in the cabinet. Now open up the faucet, and remove the handle set screw and work on down to the Cartridge.Pull it out and check and clean the inlet ports. Now turn the water back on for a few seconds to flush out the supplies and the open valve body and check for the hot water flow now.

If not then click on back with the details. If everything looks OK then reassemble and test.

Please ask for further clarification and rate the solution as 'Fixya' if found useful.

Thanks
Rylee

    if there is a ring on the outside of the faucet it can be adjusted that way.... likely tho that is a water saver type device... and that's one of the "side effects" to using one

The hot and cold are reversed on our single handle shower (no tub faucet -- shower only)


Hot on left.
Cold on right.
Some single handle faucets have bleed-over where both hot and cold enter mixing valve each time handle is turned on, even when faucet calls for just cold or just hot.
Otherwise maybe a do-it-yourself plumber got pipes backwards... or maybe the tub used to be on other side of wall, and tub was moved during remodeling but pipes were not changed.

To fix problem:
First of all, turn off shower faucet. Turn on Hot at sink and put ear against shower faucet listening for sound of water flowing through the mixing valve.
If mixing valve is working fine, you need to open wall and investigate more.
For example if you have access door, reach in and feel which pipe is hot.
Pipes might need to be reversed if problem comes up in home inspection, otherwise the problem will not harm anything.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

My 3 handle bathtub fauset [price pfisher] cycles hot and cold


You will need to either replace center "shower diverter"assembly or a quicker fix would be to remove old tub water fill spout and replace with a "pull up diverter knob" type water spout. Cost about 10 dollars Hdepot Pull Knob to divert water to shower when showering.

This sounds like a proper with your water heater. If you just installed this new shower head. First take it off and make sure that the hot water valve is opening fully if that checks out then go to the water heater and make sure the pipes check out ok and also that the heater is ok. Try putting a water heater blanket on it. Also try getting some pipe cover and cover the hot water line so on really cold days or not you will have warmer water
