No cold water to shower but have it in the sink could it be in the valve?


The shower valve is probably pressure balanced, meaning it is anti-scald. Depending on the make of faucet you either need a new balancing spool or a new cartridge.

Have you disassembled the shower head to see if it has a flow restrictor in it. If it does you can remove it and any aerator type screens. Hope this helps. Thanks

No hot water in shower but have hot water in sink


Is your shower valve a single handle. If so I would reccomend you change cartridge. To do this shut off water to valve or house. Remove center cover on valve handle,most of these are just friction fit so gently pry off with knife point or small screwdriver. Remove handle by pulling straight out,then remove chrome cover that fits around outside of valve. Ther is a small copper retaing clip that holds valve in place. It should have a small hole in tab that is on top of valve. Grasp this with pliers and pull up to remove. Then remove cartridge by pulling on cartridge stem. If it's doesn't come out you can get a moen cartridge puller at hardware store. Remove old cartridge,install new one and reinstall retaing clip. Reinstall chrome cover and handle.Turn water back on and try shower valve to see that cold is on the right side. If it's not remove handle and turn center stem 180 degrees.This will change cold side to right. Put handle back on with cover and you sould be done. Hope this helps. Thanks

You will need to remove the old cartridge from inside the shower valve body and either refurbish it with new rubber seals and O rings or replace the cartridge altogether (preferable). It's not a complicated fix but the Posi Temp cartridge can be a bear to remove. Moen and Danco make special 'pullers' to make the cartridge removal go a little easier (sold at Lowes/HD and plumbing supply for anywhere between $15 and $35 but well worth it, IMO).

Hot at showers but not at sinks


Do your sinks have a hot and cold handle or just one handle. how old are the faucets. If they are very old.the first thing i would do take one faucet out and replace cartridge.

Shower goes hot and cold


If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps
