The valve where they mix is blocked on the hot side, or the shut off is almost shut off. check the shut off first.

Is it possible to adjust shower mixer temperature?


Now my best guess is that you kept heater too high for a long time which means that the pipe carrying hot and cold water got touched and water became hot So turn off the heater for while and let the pipes cool off then turn the heater on at a low setting ...

My American Standard R120 shower valve has excellent pressure on the cold side, no pressure on the hot side.


Could be a chunk of scale in the valve. Need to turn off water supply and take valve apart. If nothing is found, turn water supply on to give line a 'quick' flush and turn back off. If this does not help, you probably have an obstruction somewhere in the hot supply line and a plumber may be needed unless you are handy. Good luck.

I do not have enough hot water from my shower head. I have plenty of hot water in my bathroom and kitchen sink. What can I do to remedy the problem?


the problem is the hot/cold mix is set wrong ---
remove the water control handle to expose the mix valve -- you should see a small set screw that will either increase or decrease the travel of the hot water valve. --- sometimes instead of a set screw there is a little pop off plastic set ring,, pop off and set to a more advanced travel.
this will increase the amount of hot water that flows to the shower head and the bath tap.

I do not have a mixing valve on my boiler, will this create mixing problems? Sometimes it mixes ok. other times it is all hot or cold. I replaced the cartridge once. This system is only a couple of months...


If your posi-temp valve is working correctly this should not be a problem. Does your hot water temp. ever get extremly hot or just warmer? The way the posi-temp cartridge is designed if you have a large drop jn cold water pressure then the inside piston is supposed to slide to the hot side restricting the flow of hot water to a safe level.If the pressure on the hot side drops suddenly then the valve is supposed to restrict cold water flow.
If the temperature gets to a unsafe level you can adjust maximum hot setting by removing the handle. There is a allen head set screw on the bottom of the handle. Loosen screw and pull handle off. On the newer models pull off chrome sleeve from around valve body and slide outer geared disc off enough to seperate from inner gear. There are markings on disc with arrow pointing to h. or c. Adjust outer disc in the direction you want to adjust and slide it back so that gears engage. Each tooth on gears will change water temp. about2-3 degrees.Try it and readjust till you get the hot set point you want. One other thing you could do is install a small pressure tank on cold water line to compensate for pressure changes. Hope yhis helps you. Thanks

Rinnai Infinity 26 hot water system set to 55 degrees with remote temp adjuster. Water only luke warm for showers. Burnner working, water & gas pressure ok. Any thoughts ... Stephen


If you aren't getting any error codes, then the heater is probably doing its job. Your problem is probably somewhere in your plumbing system. The most common reason you get this sort of problem is due to cold water mixing in the hot water system. There are a number of causes for a "cross connection" :

-Faulty check valve
-Missing check valve on reciculation return line
-Faulty shower cartridge
-Thermostatic mixing valve set too low
-Faulty thermostatic mixing valve
-Faulty anti-scald valve

The easiest way to confirm a cross connection is to: 1) shutoff the cold water entering the tankless heater 2) open hot water valves around the house. If you still have water flowing at your hot water fixtures, then you have a cross connection.

I'd like to install 1 shower had and one hand held shower. What do I need to have ?


well you can do a 3 way shower valve , or a mixing valve with 2 control valves. or you can do just to regular shower valves one for each of the heads you want one for the rain and one for the shower head. this way is cheeper and you can have one on hot water and the other cold water or the other way around or both the same temp.

No cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve, when i turn handle to cold I get hot water, when handle is turn to hot i get hot water


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
