If this occurs after you were able to get hot water to flow from the hot side then I suspect that it is a piece of debriis that has found its way to block the port opening. Remove the acess panel to the valve shut the water supply off to the tub valve using the handles only first on the valve. With the access panel removed tak e a bucket or other similar container and remove the hot water tubing from the spout. Once that is accomplished stick the tube into the container and turn the hot lever on. This should blow out any debris that may exist. Reassemble the valvle. If this did not work remove both the cold and hot feed tubes from the spout and use an air compressor to blow the spout out. If neither of these worked you will probably need to call a serviceman to resolve as other options require cutting the hot supply to the handle and may require special tools that you may not have handy. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Set screw is stuck. Any suggestions on how to remove it to replace the roman tub faucet?

to replace the roman tub faucet you have to expose the faucet under the deck of the tub. Most of the time builders do not install a door to do repairs. So expose the underside of the deck of the tub, turn off the main water outside then cut the water pipe for the hot and cold water with a tube cutter. At this point take a sawall and place the blade so the side of the blade touches the bottom side of the deck.
and cut all the way though the body of the stem.

Do all three and your done with the hard part. Install your new faucet and enjoy.

Hope I was help to you Rich

I get hot water but no cold water from my moen one hand tub fixture.

pretty sure that model has shut-off's/stop's.they are on either side of the center of faucet,they take a slotted screw-driver.check that,and the balancing spool could be clogged,if the stop's are open check the cartridge real good,as well as the faucet body for any debris. if you end up pulling the cartridge flush out the valve body to prove flow from both hot,and cold.

Cut a hole in the sheetrock on the adjoining wall closest to the faucet and turn on the hot water supply. Then u will have to screw the piece of sheetrock back in and tape and spackle. then paint of course. My husband who is a plumber says there should ALWAYS be an access panel for a roman tub!!! if they didn't put one then u have to make one. u can buy one at a plumbing supply store to put in once u cut the whole. then u would have one for any future problems.

No water flow

Did this unit come with water stops built into the faucet body? Some of the newer faucets have stops built in and they need to be turned on. Also if you aren't going to plumb the hot in, you will need to cap it off but it should run without it unless it has some sort of balance in it. I don't think so though.
