SOURCE: No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet

Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

Hello. No Poltergeist involved! These valves have an anti scald feature. I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with your particular handle type so I've included a link to Moens site. Click the link and look about 2/3 of the way down and find the downloads for your product. The information you need is on page 5 of the document.

SOURCE: hot water on bathroom faucet won't get hot only luke warm

That is a type where the water is mixed inside the valve and the valve has gotten worn or loose inside. Replace it or take it apart to see what isn't working properly.

If all the other faucets work, then the problem is the mixing valve in your shower. You will need a new shower fixture.

I turn it all the way towards the hot but my water will only get luke warm. i try tried to fix it myself but only got as far as unscrewing the base.... Can you tell me what to do?


Take handle off of shower faucet and it will have a dial to remove and adjust to proper flow. Just remember where it is at. Remove it and move it about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clocwise and reinstall to increase to hotter temp.

How do you adjust temp. water luke warm? This is a single handle. Hot water set at 145.


These type faucets have anti scald dial setting that if you remove the handle you can gain access to it.
Just remove handle and mark or remember where it is and pull it out and reinsert it about 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

It has got marks on it and looks like a little gear.

Mira Sport shower running luke warm


Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

The temperature in my shower is very luke warm only at the shower


Do you mean the other faucets in the house are hot and only the shower is warm? If so there is an anti-scald adjustment on the faucet that needs to be turned up a few notches. Havent adjusted a Grohe faucet but most faucets you rmove the handle and behind the handle is a nothced adjustment ring that prevents the faucet from getting too hot. This ring, or stop, is pulled out and twisted clockwise(or counter clockwise to set higher or lower max temp, then pushed back. maybe you can look up grohe to see which way ring or stop adjusts for hotter water.
