Question about Home
5 year old shower vavle. (it is a 2 handle thermostatic system), and in the house with a tenant. She said that the water wont get past lukewarm even though she has the handle turned all the way up. is there anything that can be checked other than buying a new valve system? One plumber has said its always the thermostat cartridge, and I need to buy one - but he has not been out to the house or taken a look. Also, does anyone know if Mico Designs sells just the cartridge or do I have to replace the entire guts of the system? Ive tried to find part numbers and all I can find is the part number for the entire valve.
You need to find a stockist near to you and see if the have the parts or a new valve . Just google the make of the valve and stockist's

it's possible sometimes you can get brand new junk. one question is the thermo coupler in the right postion? i would check to make sure that it is indeed picking up the temp like it should.

Is this a dual handle or single handle? if it is a single handle
turn the valve 180 degree. if not, then check the cold water supply line.

well the Diverter is not working it dose not matter the distance. when applied it should shoot the water to shower or tub if not working will come both.

hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

single shower units are shipped in cold position as a safety u have to adjust ur anti-scold clips to allow hot water --- that red clip is ur hot adjustment-- if u have ur paperwork for the unit in it explains on how to adjust[ but]=== if u pull back the red clip [it sits on a spline of teeth] and turn it put back on so the valve opens do it in small increments till ur comfortable with hot adjustment will take a few times
