Water turns from hot to cold

I have the single lever. When I turn the handle counterclockwise the water temp goes from hot to cold. A little turn gives off the hottest temp water and almost all the way around is coldest water. Any suggestions? Thanks so much

The valve stem has been turned 180 degrees allowing the ports to be on the side opposite the display on the chrome trim. This is a simple solution. Cut the water supply off to the valve, and bleed the pressure off the valve, remove the handle,remove the chrome extension tube behind the handle, pull the brass clip out of it's slot, spint the valve 180 degrees and reassemble. If you have an issue gaing access to the valve cartridge to turn it 180 degrees put the handle back on and carefully pull the cartridge out and turn it 180 and reinsert. This will resove your issue so that the hot is on the left and the cold is on the right. There is one other possibility and that is that the supply lines were reversed when the shower was roughed in. Either way the 180 tiurn will fix the issue. Thanks fo using Fix Ya.

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.

How to adjust temp control for sigle lever shower control


Temp control is only accomplished by moving handle to desired position. If your asking is the hardware that in behind the single lever going to allow for adjustments, then the answer is NO. I installed the same into one of my bathrooms several years ago and I know what I am talking about. The single handle on that type on mine starts off then cold to hot. Problem is I wait for hot water to max so I can adjust it down to a comfortable temperture to prevent being burned. I refuse to buy one for other tubs. The 2 handles make temperture much easier with less wasted water used until its hot. Remember if you decide to replace with a two lever model then you will have to replumb the pipes for a two handle hardware unit (thats the stuff behind wall that your single handle goes into to which is currently plumbed for a single handle hardware unit.)

I cant adjust water temp 0n a single handle kohler shower valve


4yrs isn't very long, but I do believe the mixer needs a new cartridge in it. unless you have a loose knob/handle.But I don't thnk so. The temps should change almost immediatley. Have someone change the cartridge. It may need a special tool. If you think you can, do it yourself, the tool comes with full instructions. Make sure it does, consult with the pkumbing person .

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
