Question about Plumbing
Has been operating just great until recently when hot water pressure seems stunted. Not so on other faucets so my thought is something is being affected in the tub faucet. I removed the stubborn side and rinsed it out, but still not flowing properly.
Debris can get into the shower body/cartridge. Pull out the cartridge and flush the shower body and clean out the cartridge. Sometimes you need to replace the cartridge.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

Begin by shutting off the water to the faucet. Then, on the back of the handle you will find a small button. remove it with a small knife blade and underneath you will see a 1/8" set screw. Use a 1/8" inch allen wrench to remove the set screw. You can then unscrew the bonnet and remove the diverter. Take the diverter to a hardware store or plumbing supply to purchase the appropriate repair kit. goodluck.

If this occurs after you were able to get hot water to flow from the hot side then I suspect that it is a piece of debriis that has found its way to block the port opening. Remove the acess panel to the valve shut the water supply off to the tub valve using the handles only first on the valve. With the access panel removed tak e a bucket or other similar container and remove the hot water tubing from the spout. Once that is accomplished stick the tube into the container and turn the hot lever on. This should blow out any debris that may exist. Reassemble the valvle. If this did not work remove both the cold and hot feed tubes from the spout and use an air compressor to blow the spout out. If neither of these worked you will probably need to call a serviceman to resolve as other options require cutting the hot supply to the handle and may require special tools that you may not have handy. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

take the valves out and check the valve seats use flashlight if they look good then very carefully put your finger in and feel for any burrs when in doubt just replace the seats this is always a good practice when replacing valves
