Question about Delta T13420 Chrome Classic Single Handle Monitor Pressure Balanced Tub and
I have a Delta Innovations Monitor 17 Series Volume Control T17030 shower faucet. When the water is turned on with the big handle and the little handle is set to cold, the water runs fine. As I turn the temp control handle (little handle) towards hot, the water begins to slow and eventually comes to a stop when the control is turned all the way to hot. It seems like the valve is working at that point as it is shutting down the cold as the control is turned to hot but no hot water comes out. The hot water valve is on the ''on'' positionI in the basement. I need to fix it. How?
This has happened to me in the past and had exactly the same symptoms but with a different valve. Before trying the below, it may make sense to be 100% sure that hot water is definitely getting to the valve .. can you get access to touch the hot feed pipe to make sure that it is in fact the valve at fault.
The following could be the issue:
1. The shower valve has a bit of dirt or gunk in it and is unable to allow the hot water through. It can happen with a very small amnount of dirt and is a real pain as it requires disassemble of the entire valve assembly.
2. The valve has failed and needs to be replaced - This was the solution to mine and was also significant in terms of effort.
Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!
