If you have single handle facute one bad cartridge in the system may be acting like a mixing valve and allowing cold water to mix with hot not allowing water to get hot enough .

I don't know if you had the mixing valve out or got it turned around but, try taking the handle off and operate the shower without the handle, in other words, turn the valve so the left side of the valve is now in the up position and just stick handle on and make sure you have your full range and hot and cold water. Two other possiblilities are, if you did not runwater before installing new valve, you may have gotten trash form the lines, plugging your valve. If you can't resolve the problem by mearly turning the mixing valve, you may want to remove it, make sure it's nott plugged and turn it 180 deg:

I have a newly installed shower with moen chateau shower faucet. After several successful showers, the water has completely stopped. what could be wrong?


There is probably junk in the lines that has clogged mixing valve Moen is pretty simple to operate and maintain, however, before the new system was installed, maybe it was done, the water should have been run through the valve itself, without mixing valve installed. I am going to provide you with a video that shows how to remove the valve and, with a little help, you can remove valve and hopefully can clear the lines by running water, slowly, through the fixture, without the valve installed. You would want to try this anyway to make sure you have flow to the faucet:

Make sure all junk is cleared from lines and re-install your valve. If your cold and hot water is backwards, remove the valve and rotate 180 deg. and re-install. You can note the way the tabs are when you remove, and install in the same position.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

Replace valve canister- no construction- just remove after taking time to shut off water- a few screws and the job takes 15 minutes. I take for granted you have good water hot/cold to the fixture. This fix will cure most temperature balance problems.
The single lever system is a EZ care system. Note the canister can malfunction faster when exposed to untreated hard water.

Very little cold water from shower valve


If this is a new installation and has always beenj this way, then I would suspect that there may be an obstruction in the cold water line leading to the valve. Or something stuck in the valve at the point where the cold water is connected. If someone has worked on thius valve recently , then I would suspect that they got the valve cartridge in backwards, If the catridge is not placed in the valve correctly the opperation is messed up.

My shower is running cold water only, the rest of house has hot water


sounds like you have a single lever shower, in this case the valve stem which mixes the hot and cold has a clogged hot side , you'll need to remove and replace the cartridge or valve stem
