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.

It sounds as though the valve is not closing and opening properly. I would have a proffesional come out to have a look. I could also be the control board not working correctly or a combination of both.

Sure - there is always help at FixYa!

This sounds like a bad cartridge. They can be replaced. To replace the cartridge:

Turn off the water to the tub/shower.
Remove the handle cover (it should pop off)
Remove the center screw (usually phillips head)
Remove the retaining clip holding cartridge in - you can use a pair of long nose piers or a small screwdriver
Grab the cartridge with a pair of pliers and pull straight out. It may require a little force - there are O-rings around the cartridge to keep it from leaking.
Check the cartridge bore (the hole where the cartridge was removed)
Clean any debris or scale - lime away or CLR will work
Apply a little bit of soap around the new cartridge to help it slide in easier. Push it all the way in and make sure it is seated. Re-install the clip (you should have received a new clip with the replacement cartridge)
Turn the water back on a check for leaks
If OK, reinstall the knob screw, and cap.

Let Mom take her warm shower...:)

Is it possible to adjust shower mixer temperature?


Now my best guess is that you kept heater too high for a long time which means that the pipe carrying hot and cold water got touched and water became hot So turn off the heater for while and let the pipes cool off then turn the heater on at a low setting ...

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.

To adjust hotter


Your shower has been installed for a while and you are noticing the dial must be turned further and further to the hotter settings to get a normal shower - In this case the filter on the hot inlet is getting clogged with debris. Refer to the cleaning instructions in the manual that came with your shower, or contact Hansgrohe USA by calling 800-334-0455 for the documents.

If your installation is brand new or old, debris on the filter is the number one cause of this problem. You can test it by noticing if there is a drop in pressure when you dial to a hot setting as opposed to the cold setting. The drop in pressure indicates dirt on the filter where water has a tougher time getting through.

Filters on a shower valve may seem strange to US consumers. Your old two handle valve system woul run for years without needing servicing. Now you have filters to deal with. These filters, like any filter need to be cleaned periodically and the frequency depends on the quality of your water supply system.

The real benifit, is that the filters protect your smart valve and the shower head from malfunctioning due to debris.

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!

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

Shower temperature too hot


Shower valves that have anti-scald features are renowned for this problem. Usually it is caused by not being used regularly. It can be repaired usually without replacing the valve, but you will have to dissemble it, clean, and use some plumbers grease to reassemble it. It should work fine after this. If it still does not work you will need to replace the cartridge.
