Newer tub faucets have a anti-scald feature. It normally looks like a piece of plastic dial just above or below The tub handle. It could be that your water set too hott and he scald valve shuts off the hot water only

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

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.

How do you adjust temp. water luke warm? This is a single handle. Hot water set at 145.


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.

No cold water


Anti Scald Valves have an adjustment under the handle (remove handle) to allow so much hot water in no matter how far handle is turned. Its possible that the adjustment is set to allow only hot water in, this of course defeats the purpose of anti-scalding. Check to see if you can adjust this back. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was of any help.

How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

The temperature in my shower is very luke warm only at the shower


Do you mean the other faucets in the house are hot and only the shower is warm? If so there is an anti-scald adjustment on the faucet that needs to be turned up a few notches. Havent adjusted a Grohe faucet but most faucets you rmove the handle and behind the handle is a nothced adjustment ring that prevents the faucet from getting too hot. This ring, or stop, is pulled out and twisted clockwise(or counter clockwise to set higher or lower max temp, then pushed back. maybe you can look up grohe to see which way ring or stop adjusts for hotter water.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
