Support Information

This link gets you to owners manual installation.
It wont let me copy diagram.
Step 7
You need to adjust the Rotational Limit Stop
The 1st position is default and allows the least amount of hot water into the mix. As you move it more clockwise it allows more hot water into the flow. If you move it all the way clockwise you have the greatest amount of hot water and run risk of scald.
Basically you have a faucet to help protect from scald if the handle should accidentally get rotated all the way to hot.

SOURCE: Not enough hot water

Some higher end models do have an adjustment that is behind the face plate. You would have to remove the handle and the screws in the faceplate to expose them. If you have adjustments they will be located on the brass valve body facing you. You will need a flashlight and a flathead screwdriver to make the adjustment. If your model is not equipped with adjustments you could have a faulty valve stem. The stem is comprised of a rubber band like gasket that separates port holes into which the waters flow. There could be some piece of trash blocking the port not allowing adequate water from the hot side into the valve.Some valves stems are also able to be installed upside down causing the same issue as the ports do not rotate fully to allow adequate supply. However you say that you have adequate pressure on the hot side but not warm enough. There is another possibility also based on the way the shower supply was plumbed but there is no need to go into this unless this does not resolve your issue. I hope this is of assistance and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower

make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.

SOURCE: low flow hot water in Delta Shower

If your water heater is old or has been recently replaced, it will slough off debris that will get caught in the hot water supply side of the faucet. You have to disassimble the faucet and use a dental pic to remove the debris from it. This is a real common occurance. You can also try to flush out that side by removing the parts and then slowly turning on the water without the parts inside. Be careful not to flood your bathroom when you do this. But usually you have to dig it out. I have spent as high as 3 hours digging the liner from the dip tube of a water heater out of a faucet.

Adjust anti-scald delta B114900


Adjusting the anti scald is pretty simple on this device. Attached is a photo of breakdown for this. Basically, unscrew the labeled part to access a very small black rubber gasket. Remove the black gasket to gain access to the anti scald part. You have have to use needle nose pliers to remove the black gasket but it does come off. Once you have this part off, you will see the two parts (with teeth like a wheel) that will adjust the hot water levels. Remove the part on top and turn the little "handle" clockwise towards "3'oclock" to make the water hotter. The part itself will not allow you to go past "3 oclock" for safety reasons. adjust-anti-scald-delta-b114900-ucghvzot5faznyh4jdqs4e5n-4-0.jpg

I woke up to this problem this morning and was told by delta it could either be the cartridge or the check valves assembly. For me it was the check valves. The plastic developed a small crack. Very simple process to replace the parts.

Good afternoon, We have a 25yr old delta shower faucet and head. both work wonderful but the water is not all that hot- our new hotwater tank is set at 130 degrees. If i need to change the mix do i do it...


You don't change the setting on the faucet or behind the shower wall. You change the mix in the hot water heater itself. New hot water heaters are set at a relatively lower hot-water-setting for liability purposes. To achieve a hotter mix, take the cover plate off the hot water heater. You will see a dial setting that allows you to turn up the heat. Depending on what type of water heater you have, there might be two cover plates (lower and upper). If so, you'll need to adjust both of these.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

Pressure is high can it be adjusted?


Is this a new install? Is this happening with cold and hot water, or just one? Is it just happening with the shower valve open if it's not a new install. it may be the shower valve bad. These can be replaced easily, Lowes $7-14 depending on brand. The water has to be shut off from coming in to the shower. If it is happening with the water running on either hot/cold, the each one has a valve like the shower knob. These go bad and are replaced the same. These release to much water when the rubber seal breaks down inside the valve. Let us know which way it's happening and maybe able to help more.
