The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: 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.

Uue a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle to access the dial that set's the mixture of water.Remember or mark where it is and remove and reinsert counter clockwise about a 1/4 turn to start to you reach desired temperature setting. Be careful not to set it at a hot enough setting to burn you.
Once dial in place slide handle on and turn on to check water temperature.

Pull apart the front of the valve and there is a limiter that is set to limit hte hot water, you need to adjust that limiter. I find many valves are shipped with teh setting too cold.

SOURCE: grohe shower mixer, water always
There is a hot temp limiter that comes from the factory set too low, often. typically you remove the handle and there is a limiting ring located under it that needs adjusting. This is a very common issue on most brands, deals with lawsuits.
