SOURCE: hot temperature

If you turn the unit around and look indise the back of it, there is a black knob that you turn to adjust the temperature. It is kind of hard to see unless you turn the machine full around.

SOURCE: NO HOT WATER IN THE SHOWER

take the control apart. and replace the cartirdge. most likely the washer in the cartridge need to be changed.
it is cheaper to get the cartridge then to replace the washer.

SOURCE: Handle lowers on its own, and hot water almost shuts off.

If you remove the handle on the faucet, you will find a grey or white retaining washer that has a couple of notches on it. Tighten this retaining washer and this will solve your problem.

SOURCE: how do you adjust temp. water luke warm?

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.

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.

Tip

Adjusting the temperature setting on a Delta single handle faucet 13/14 series.


Delta single handle Tub & Shower faucet temperature control adjustment.

Step 1 - Remove handle to gain access to rotational limit stop. Once handle is off there ia a plastic limit stop disc. Remember where it is to start with. Metal handles require a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. Plastic handles require removal of cap to access screw to remove with phillip's head screw driver.

Step-2- To adjust the temperature of the water coming out of the valve, pull the disc back to a position where it is possible to remove the Rotational Limit Stop and readjust the teeth to desired position to acheive temperature. Once moved reinsert it into place to test water

Step-3- Clock wise will decrease the temperature and counter clockwise will increase the outlet temperature to a hotter setting. Temperature setting per tooth (notch) could result in 4 to 16 degree's based on inlet water conditions.

Check water temperatures to make sure it is at a safe temperature to avoid scalding. Safe operating temperatures range around 120 degree's. Some may have to be adjusted based on season's.
Winter season's when it is cold outside you may have to turn temperature up due to water coming into house will be colder than it would be in the summer.

I have a Grohe shower system that has the temperature control it was working fine and now the water only comes out luke warm. the handle goes from 65 degrees to 110 degrees. I live in a older highrise...


WEll, the question is do your sinks have water that is hot enough? If no, perhaps your water heater is set too low. If yes, many shower controls have hot limiter and if you pull the handle, often there is a spline assembly that stops the travel from going hot, adjust to allow more.

I have A whirlpool hot water heater I can get hot water downstairs but not upstairs through the shower and tub


Upstairs do you get hot water to your sink faucet. If you do this indicates to me that the temperature valve in your Shower & Tub may need to be adjusted.

For single handle please remove handle to gain access to dial that adjusts hot & cold water mixing.
Remember where it is and take it out and replace about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise and reinstall and try.

It is a plastic adjustment dial that will slide off after the handle is removed.

Trace lines if possible to assure correct pipe's are connected to valve.

Hansgrohe 06358620 shower not hot enough


Remove the handle by loosening the screw near the bottom. You should see a plastic ring, probably green, that is the hot water safety. Adjust it so that the handle will turn further for more hot water. It most likely pulls out, then turn it left, reinsert and reattach the handle.

Grohe valve Grohtherm Thermostatic Rough 34-126 I turn the mixer to full hot but the temperature remains tepid. All the other faucets in the


The thermostatic stop is set too low. Havent set a grohe before but most other thermostatic shower valves work similar. pull off the handle(however a grohe handle comes off . . ) there should be a notched ring or stop which keeps the handle from going all the way hot. pull out the ring and turn it a few teeth hotter put back and reinstall handle try water temp and adjust again if necessary.

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved

The way to adjust the temperature is by this:

  1. Get a pocket thermometer.
  2. Turn on the water to the hottest setting.
  3. Remove handle.
  4. Check the temperature with the thermometer. (adjust to your liking, scald begins above 100 f)
  5. Set temperature by removing and rotating the plastic piece just below the handle left or right until the desired temperature is achieved.

This should do it.
