If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Remove handle.
  3. Remove top cap.
  4. Turning spout back and forth gently lift and remove.
  5. Remove and replace diverter.
Hope this helps and please remember to rate this!

SOURCE: water is either hot or cold

yes, the valve should be close at the downward postion. and the water should be clod to hot from left to right.
open the handle and pull out the cartridge.
make sure the valve body is installed right side up.
if it is, insert the cartridge with the lock pin on top.
reinstall the handle.

SOURCE: Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed

Hello. It sounds like your plumbing was installed wrong, with the hot and the cold supply lines reversed. If that is the case, those supply lines will have to be replumbed to make your faucet work properly. Often, if those lines are accessable, it is only a 20 minute job. Joe

Behind the handle check to see if it has a dail to take out and replace at a different postion this will change the hot and cold. It a anti scald protection device. Don't remove cartridge just adjust dail.

Mark where you start and take out and move a 1/8-1/4 turn at a time and replace til temp desired. It has teeth like a gear you move to adjust temp.

first make sure the water to your house is shut off and if possible drained enough in a sink in the basement so that you here a sucking sound when you turn on the shower. yes there is a few different cartridges, but they have a lifetime warranty on them. so they are free. call around to different plumbing suppliers to see if they carry delta cartridges. then if you can do it remove cartridge and take with you to ensure the right one[note, a little plumbers grease or vaseline on the o-rings will make your install a little easier]

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.

HOT AND COLD REVERSED MOEN & ONE HANDLE TUB


This is a very simple fix. NOTE: This is for a Posi-temp model only!! First turn off the house water. Relieve the water pressure at a nearby sink. Then remove the handle from the faucet. Remove the black plastic piece, then the two white plastic pieces (these control how hot the water gets by controlling how far the handle turns), then the metal cover over the center piece of the valve. Once these are out of the way, there is a small metal clip that you can see that holds the cartridge in place sitting in a **** on the top of the center piece. Remove this carefully with a small straight edge screwdriver, taking care not to lose it. Then with a small pair of pliers, pulling on the center of the cartridge, pull straight out. Once the cartridge is completely out, turn it counter clock wise, 180 degrees and then reverse the process. The hot/cold will be in proper location now.
Now for an older style, simply take the handle off, turn the center portion of the cartridge 180 degrees counter clock wise and return the handle. Hot/cold will now be in their proper locations.
Good luck.

On a single lever shower handle, when the handle is pointing straight down the water is off. The handle will then rotate 270 degrees to the right through cold - warm - hot. What has happened is when you took the other handle off the new handle didn't go into the same position as the old one. So now when the handle stops at the down position the valve is still open probable running cold water. The fix is to take the handle back off. Rotate the valve into the off position so that water stops flowing and reinstall the handle pointing down. Now when you rotate the handle to the right you will get cold then warm then hot at 270 degrees and back to off when the handle is pointing back straight down. If you are still having problems please let me know and we will examine it a little closer.

It takes a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. To increase hot water flow remove plastic dial that sets temperature. It is right behind handle and slides off stem for easy adjustment.

Remove indicator and replace about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clock wise to increase to hotter temperature.

2-handle faucet handles both rotate "on" counter=clockwise


Here's the solution from Delta:
On a two-handle kitchen or lavatory faucet, if the handles rotate in the wrong direction, simply rotate the right stem stop assembly 180 degrees. This will change the rotation of the handle to the other direction.
