There is no adjustment.. if it worked well in the past you need to replace the cartridge as that controls everything.

My 1998 gmc jimmy slt has a heating problem. The heater wont turn off. As long as the car is on the heater is on full blast. The fans work and everything knob wise works but the heater is always on.


The air temperature valve electronic actuator positions the temperature door according to the temperature setting of the temperature control on the temperature control knob. For the full COLD temperature setting, the temperature control returns approximately 12 volts to the air temperature valve electric actuator. When the temperature setting is changed to full HOT, the temperature door is moved to the warm position and the output drops to about 0 volts. For a temperature setting in the mid range, the temperature door is positioned according to the voltage supplied through the temperature control switch.

How do I adjust water temperature after valve has been installed


Don,

there be should be a knob (typically red in color) on the front of your water heater, with temperature degrees listed. The knob should also delineate a typical range of settings for domestic use, which range from 120 degrees to 160 degrees. While a hotter setting will allow an increased amount of warm water, for example for longer shower duration, these temperatures can present a risk of scalding and require more energy to maintain the selected temperature.

Shower force


Are you wanting to change/switch the hot and cold range of the shower or the temperature max and min? As for the range, the Monitor pressure balance valve may be having build up or problems. This valve controls the mixture of hot and cold water. To fix this, you will need to turn off the water supply, take the pipes apart and clean out the valve (I would recommend a professional). As for the max and min, you may just need to check the water heater pressure in your house. It may not be the faucet at all.

Heat stopped working


There are several possible reasons as to why you are not getting any heat in your vehicle. 1) Low coolant level; check coolant level in radiator/reservoir to make sure that it is within operating range (check with engine cold). 2) Improperly operating thermostat. If your thermostat is stuck in the open position, the engine will not reach operating temperature and the engine coolant will provide little or no heat to the car heater. Check your coolant temperature gauge on the dash to make sure that it is the normal operating range. The thermostat will need replacing if the engine temperature is still in the low range after 10 minutes, or so, of running. 3) Plugged heater core. After engine has warmed up, place your hands on the two smaller coolant hoses that lead into the firewall/heater. Both hoses should be hot (the inlet slightly hotter than the outlet) If one hose is hot and the other is only warm or cold, than the heater core is likely plugged. I would recommend a cooling system flush in this case. 4) The heater control valve is not open. The heater control valve is a valve located in one of the smaller coolant hoses leading to the firewall/heater core. It is usually cable operated, but may also be operated by a vacuum motor. Make sure valve is moving when the temperature lever or knob on your instrument panel is moved from cold to hot. If it does not move, and it is cable actuated, ensure that cable is connected to the valve arm and dash control lever. If it is vacuum controlled check small vacuum hose for kinks and leaks. Remove vacuum hose from valve and check for vacuum when heater control is moved from cold to hot. If vacuum is not present, there is a problem with the heater control (possibly a vacuum leak under the instrument panel or at the temperature control).

Maytag washer will not get warm


1) the temperature coming from your house determine how is the temperature. You can get hot, cold or mix of hot and cold available to your machine.If the water is too cold affect the machine,and if is too hot, the warm temperature colapse.
If you live Northern are, unless you adjust the cold and hot verywell affect the temperatur of your machine.WARM water is better in summer and Colder during the winter.
God bless you

What is the difference between hot and cold vavle clearances


When it is stated that valve clearance should be set when hot, you first adjust the clearance on the cold engine after assembly to the hot setting specs if they are the only ones given, then let the vehicle warm up to operating temperature. Then adjust the clearances again.
If it is just a tune-up(undisturbed engine), let the engine warm up to operating temperature, then adjust.
The reason is that metal expands as it heats up, which affects the valve clearance.

I have a Whirlpool washer GHW9150PW0 and it always washes on hot water, no matter if I set the temperature on cold. I turned off the hot water faucet and still the wash comes out warm. What is the problem?


these washers sense the water temperature that comes in to them and automatically adjust the temperature by turning on the hot and cold valve on make sure both your water valves on the wall are on all the way and water is coming out of each

No heat. Guage shows medium range between hot and cold, but no heat out of diffusers. My first thought is the thermostat, but thought that I would check with others first before I go changing parts.


Check both heater hoses under the hood put your hand on each one and feel the temperature make sure the engine is warmed up to operating temperature though. If one feels hot and the other one is cold or luke warm your heater core may be plugged up also on those hoses see if there is a heater valve connected to either one if so make sure it is operating properly.

Shower water temperature regulation


The temperature is adjustable. The valve has a disc you pull off the front of valve and then rotate the seat I believe counter-clockwise. If you get the paperwork for this valve from moen it is very explanatory. I can help further if needed, Let me know!
