How to turn up the temp. on a Rheem mod. 82v52-2 hot water heater


To adjust the thermostat, turn off the water heater. Then remove the access panel(s) and any insulation. The access panels are above the drain valve. Take a small flat blade screwdriver and rotate thermostat dial pointer. (The lower temperature settings are to the right.) Replace the access panel(s) and insulation and then turn on the water heater. Do not remove the protective cover on the thermostat.

Wait for water to heat and then check the temperature at various faucets. Make sure to adjust the anti-scald temperature limiter at any faucet that may be accessed by a small child or adult who might be injured by high water temperatures. (Just put a thermometer in the flowing water. Check the faucet installation information. The high temperature limiter will be under/behind the handle for single handle fixtures.)

I hope this helps.

Adjusting the temperature setting on a Delta single handle faucet 13/14 series.


Delta single handle Tub & Shower faucet temperature control adjustment.

Step 1 - Remove handle to gain access to rotational limit stop. Once handle is off there ia a plastic limit stop disc. Remember where it is to start with. Metal handles require a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. Plastic handles require removal of cap to access screw to remove with phillip's head screw driver.

Step-2- To adjust the temperature of the water coming out of the valve, pull the disc back to a position where it is possible to remove the Rotational Limit Stop and readjust the teeth to desired position to acheive temperature. Once moved reinsert it into place to test water

Step-3- Clock wise will decrease the temperature and counter clockwise will increase the outlet temperature to a hotter setting. Temperature setting per tooth (notch) could result in 4 to 16 degree's based on inlet water conditions.

Check water temperatures to make sure it is at a safe temperature to avoid scalding. Safe operating temperatures range around 120 degree's. Some may have to be adjusted based on season's.
Winter season's when it is cold outside you may have to turn temperature up due to water coming into house will be colder than it would be in the summer.

Remove handle to gain acess to the temperature limit stop. Remove handle and pull out handle adapter kit and next there is a dail that can be adjusted to control the water to balance the temp.

Put handle on and test water for correct movement.

Install trim and adjust the thermostat on a Grohe shower faucet


Before you install the temperature control knob, adjust the valve body (47111) with a wrench to set the temperature to "100 degree or close to it". Now, place the limit ring to tdc (top dead center) and control knob with the red 100-degree align to it. Your problem may have been the valve's temperature setting is out range when you installing the temperature control knob.

We have a newly installed Delta single-handle shower faucet and cannot figure out HOW to get a warm water mix. No matter where we turn the handle, we get different temperatures of "cold."


That is a graduated water mixer valve, and it sometimes has a little white water restrictor blocking flow from your hot water port. See if that was left in by removing the handle with all water shut off to the valve and reattach then try again. This can also happen if you have a tankless water heater because pressure controls heat. Typically a Tankless water heater system will require little, to no cold water to your bathtub valve because of the heavy water flow at the tap. Remember, flow equals temperature. Less flow = more heat, more flow = less heat.
