Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.
Good Luck, Phil

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.
If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.
Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil
