The problem is that the supply lines feeding that faucet are reversed. That is the cold supply line is feeding the hot side of the faucet and the hot supply line is feeding the cold side.

The fix is to reverse the supply lines where ever they can be most easliy accessed.

Your fixture body may be corroded beyond repair. Since you've replaced all the rebuildable parts, I'd suggest you get a plumber to check it but expect that you'll need to replace the faucet. Get a modern "cartridge" (Delta, Moen or Kohler) fixture that can be easily repaired indefinitely.

The part # you supplied is for a shower door and has no bearing to your question. There is no relationship. However, I can say there is no adjustment for any two handle shower stem or even single handle stem. Very rarely will just replacing an "O" ring stop a drip unless it it from through the stem itself and comes out under the handle. When in doubt replace the whole stem...shortcuts will only exasperate the problem. There are no shortcuts in plumbing.

No cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve, when i turn handle to cold I get hot water, when handle is turn to hot i get hot water


Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

Problem with Sterling stem.when transfered to shower,still leaks


You did not tighten the stem enough, allowing the seat to rise just above the cavity where it will sit. You may also have scaling in this area preventing the seat from sitting flush.

Very little pressure/flow rate at all hot tap outlets


where the cold water goes into the hot water heater (marked cold) there should be a "shut off" valve, close it then open it,...sounds like there is something stuck inside "before" all taps,.meaning your taps are fine,...things can get stuck in that one shut-off,....if this does nothing to rectify problem write me back with type of hot water heater,...boiler (tankless) or a tank,...electric or indirect from boiler

Sterling One levr faucet


The problem is that the supply lines coming into that shower faucet have been installed wrong. In other words, the cold is on the left side and the hot on the right side, just the opposite of what it should be. This is an easy fix if you can get to the pipes feeding the shower.
