SOURCE: moen T2113 shower faucet no hot water

You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.

SOURCE: hot water is not working in all faucet, no hot water

First do the simplest thing and check to make sure the pilot light is working on your water heater. There should be instructions posted on your unit of how to check and also how to light it if it has gone out.

these valves can be adjusted by removing the handle and adjusting the white gear that regulates the hot and cold that come out, try going more to one way if it gets colder then go the other way.

After changing my Delta shower cartridge i hear a whining noise when i run hot water in the shower. If I also turn on hot water in the bathroom sink (at same time) I get a banging noise from the pipes. ...


the banging noise is called water hammer and there are devices that can be added to your water lines to absorb the shock.

As for the noise, when you had the old cart out, did you flush out the faucet by turning in the water for a few seconds after removing the old one? This is a four hand job, one to control the water gushing out of the faucet and the other to conrol the shutoffs.
check seat and spring for correct assembly, the whine is caused by water pressure and flow obstruction.

There is a knocking sound from inside the faucet and it is leaking under it


when plumbing knocks and shakes the fittings I never seen it being the fauect causeing it. What it sounds more like that you have a loose pipe in the wall. That will bang every time the water goes on and off.

All single handle faucets are quick shut off which does not help to stop the bang. It makes it worst.

Try at first to turn off the water to the house, then open every fauect in the house and on the out side. I know it sound nuts, but this is what you are doing. when a house is bulit they install an AIR CHAMBER this is no more than a section of pipe 12 to 24 inch long with a cap on the end.

This traps air inside, you can compress air but not water so this acts like a shock absorboer that stops water hammer.

Now turn the water back on and then tirn off all the open fauects. If it stil does it you might have to open a wall and strap down the pipe work. also get some flex water supply lines for the lav faucet this will let the pipe move without making any bang soounds

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

I HAVE A 50 GALLON 5YR OLD RICHMOND HOT WATER TANK SOMETIMES YOU TURN ON HOT WATER AND IT RUNS FINE.THEN ALLOF A SUDDEN THE WATER STOPS AND PIPES BANG.WE HAVE 44PSI COMING IN FROM CITY


What you're describing is "water hammer". This problem, left unchecked, can cause big problems for your home's plumbing. Water hammer is result of quickly shutting off the flow of water in your home. The faster the rate of water flowing when it is rapidly shut off can result in very loud banging. The banging is caused by the pipes shaking in the walls, ceilings and any place they aren't secured. This repeated shaking causes soldered and glued joints to weaken and eventually fail. The most common sources for water hammer are toilets and wash machines, but even quickly shutting off a faucet can cause it too.

An short article about water hammer is here. Below is a link to images of products designed to arrest water hammer and associated noise.

Please rate this reply - I hope this helps!

Delta comes with a limited lifetime warranty. call them to get free parts. I believe you will need to check several things. Remove the spray head from the sprayer hose, point the hose into the sink drain and turn the faucet on. If it no longer makes the banging noise, replace the spray head. You need to look for a leaking spray hose under the sink also. If the faucet is making noise, replace the ball and cam assembly under the faucet handle. One other thing that I have run into is that the shut-off valves under the sink can also go bad and cause banging and vibration.

What is that rattling sound when i use my kitchen faucet in the extreme hot or extreme cold position?


Water hammer: is a loud banging or clanging of the pipes usually occurring when a valve is turned on or off due to loose pipes.

Solution: Anchor the offending pipes to the wall. Buy water hammer arrestors. Also Lower the water pressure with a pressure reducing valve

Hope this tip Helps.

Water drip into washer, used to gush in. Now water pipes bang, whine


The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.
