Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....

1 Answer

Sensitive Temp adjustment through shower.

Turn water on through tub spout and temp is easy to adjust. Flip to shower and water gets hot and is very sensitive to adjust. You have to turn way over to cold, then very gently turn back to hot to get warm water. I have this problem in two bathrooms. I replaced the inner valve and did not help. Both are Moen Chateau single handle....older.

Pull the trim off of the valve and you will see a 1 inch diameter flat screw, unscrew that and clean it out and try it again. If rinsing it doesn't work you may need to replace it. It is called a balancing caulk.

Kohler rite temp with diverter. When the tub is turned on water leaks out the shower head. Changed the diverter didn't fix problem.


You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.

How do you adjust temp. water luke warm? This is a single handle. Hot water set at 145.


These type faucets have anti scald dial setting that if you remove the handle you can gain access to it.
Just remove handle and mark or remember where it is and pull it out and reinsert it about 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

It has got marks on it and looks like a little gear.
