SOURCE: Moen posi-temp valve with little pressure

no,, they are set with water savers, they only flow aprox 2.5gpm this is the top flow,, if you have it more on hot you will get less flow bings it is temp control and won't let you burn your self,, nice thigs the government does,, the only other thing you could do is go back to the old style 2 or 3 handle diverters, but we all know nobody wants them anymore, good luck

SOURCE: Temp control doesn't allow water to get hot enough

remove the handle and there should be a white plastic deal behind the handle that you can remove it's a temperature limit setter so people dont burn themselves remove it and you will get the full hot water

SOURCE: no cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve,

Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

I have moen #3330 shower unit.All is installed but cannot get water to flow. What do I need to do???


First I would check that there is no debris stuck in the valve. In most cases if this is a pressure balanced valve if either the cold or hot water side does not have pressure the valve will not function. When installing the valve was it soldered in? If so was the valve cartridge removed when soldering? Was the valve body flushed after installation before the valve body installed if removed during installation? That model has plastic valve cartridges which are very sensitive to heat and must be removed before soldering.Also the valve body has intergal shut offs make sure that they are turned to the on position for both hot and cold. As I said above being that this is a pressure balanced valve water pressure must be available from both hot and cold. If either hot or cold has less pressure then the other the valve will balance the pressure to be equal, this is to prevent scalding.

Moen and all shower valve manufacturers follow american federal guidelines. Hold the unit in your hand with the handle facing you - the left side is the hot water inlet and the right side is the cold water inlet.

This is taken from the Moen manual. You can download it here:
http://www.moen.com/shared/pdf/instruction_sheets/ins162e.pdf
Balance Spool Maintenance
The precise and instantaneous pressure control illustrated has been
achieved through the balancing spool, which has been manufactured to
exacting tolerances.
During construction or valve installation, foreign material such as solder
flux, pipe cuttings sand, dirt or wood is unavoidably introduced into the
water system. Occasionally, however, rare, these foreign materials can
cause the balancing spool to become stuck temporarily between the
rough-in and trim-out operations. If this happens, it will be apparent at
the trim-out test, in that the valve will deliver only a small trickle of water
or it will deliver only hot or cold water. If this occurs, proceed as follows:
1. Make sure that both the hot and cold water service lines are ON. Also,
make sure that both screwdriver stop-check valves are open. The valve
WILL NOT OPERATE unless both supplies are ON.
2. If the valve still does not function properly, turn off both the hot and
cold supplies and remove the balancing spool, using a wide blade
screwdriver. The inner piston of the balancing spool should shake
back and forth freely. If this is not the case, jar the spool on either
end to remove the foreign material and free the spool. When the
spool is free, replace it; turn ON both water supplies and the valve
will function properly. If you are unable to free the inner piston,
replace the entire spool.

LOW PRESSURE HOT WATER SIDE


Disassemble the hot water valve. Look for calcium or any other materials, and clean. If you see white plastic particles, then it's probably from your water heater down tube

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot


Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
