I have replaced moen 1225B cartridge and only get cold water no hot water


when installing a new cartridge you need to put stem grease on the o-rings or you are taking a great risk of cutting the o-rings upon installation. doing this will allow the cold water to mix with the hot causing this problem it is quite common for this to happen without the grease

Got mira discovery mixer shower. wont get hot just luke warm or cold. taps in rest of house ok? Had it off the wall recently to tile behind it but apart from that been great for 6 years. any ideas?


There should be a hot water limiter behind the knob on the shower - shingle handle, undo the handle and move the adjustment to allow more hot water. Not familiar with mira discovery mixer

If not they must install a prv (Presure reducing velve) on the cold going to the house and geyser befor it t,s of to the house and even if the rest of the house water is fine u must ask ur plumber who intalled it if he took the cold water going to the new shower strait of the mains if so he must corect it by t-ing in at the right cold water supply or put a velve on the cold water to ruduse the cold presure . then u will have more hot presure and that means lovely hot shower

How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

Only hot water, no cold water.


The cartridges in the single handle units are prone to display this issue in hard water areas as mineral deposits such as calcium build up on the stem. The stems also have small rubber band like rings - for lack of a better term- that break apart and can clog the ports on the side where the are on. New stem should resolve the issue totally unless you have had a pipe break or other construction to the plumbing system recently. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
