Riobel Single Hole Faucet - Cold water problem

We just bought a brand new Riobel single hole faucet for the bathroom. Hot water is perfect. Cold water starts a bit cool/warm, then continues to get hotter and hotter.

We now just got a second one, and the same problem exists.

We have tried reversing/changing the pipes, but still the same problem.

Help please.
Thank you

SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: Need technical diagram of single hole faucet

Not sure where to find the diagram, but what type of faucet is it and where is it leaking? It it's a single lever, remove the hot/cold indicator to uncover an allen set screw. Loosen it and remove the lever, then the outer bushing nut. Now you'll have access to the interior parts around the cartridge (make sure you turn the water off to the supply lines before proceeding further). If it's the two handle type, remove the index buttons from the top of each handle to uncover a screw with either a slotted or phillips head. Remove the screws and remove the handles. You now have access to the valves and seats. If it's a 12-year-old faucet, the o-rings and seats will probably need to be replaced and this will fix your problem. If it's a single lever type, you'll need to replace the seats and springs and it will probably solve the problem.

I need to replace the hot water handle


A picture, model, or brand of the type of faucet you have will be helpful as there are only three types of faucets. One hole, two hole, and three hole faucets. The one hole ones have two types: a single hot or cold, or a mixer valve to combine hot and cold into a single faucet. Each have a surface mount or wall mount version.

They all follow the same similar installation method. Turn off water supply. Unscrew supply lines from supply to underside of the faucet. a Plumber's wrench is needed or a spanning crescent wrench to remove the supply lines.

-Unscrew whole assemble from the sink.
-insert new one into the same hole as old one.
-from underneath, install the new faucet using the supplied hardware.
-Use plumbers tape (Teflon tape). It's often a white or pink silicon tape around the threads prior to screwing the supply lines back in. Re-connect the supply line.

-Open hot water faucet to maximum. Slowly turn on the water supply. Watch for leaks and drips. If any close the water supply and undo the supply leads and apply more Teflon tape.

- to apply tape. Start at the end and pull tightly, wind the tape into the threads in the direction of the turn. Do not wind in opposite direction.

-Try to turn on water again, turn slowly until it is at maximum, watch for leaks and drips.

-now slowly close the faucet and continue watching for leaks and drops.

If the faucet is fully closed and there is no leaks, you've done a good job... basic plumbing 101.

Now if your pipes are solder types and not screwed in supply line, and you're not confident with a torch or have little experience, ask for help from a friend who has some torch knowledge or hire a plumber. It is simple to do but requires a lot more steps than simply screwing in and unscrewing supply lines.

Severely reduced water pressure from lavatory faucet


Take the strainer off the spout and check to see if there is any dirt or rust buildup in the strainer. This happens when repairs have been done. It usually collects at the first place the water comes out of.

No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet


Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

WE THOUGHT WE NEEDED ANOTHER THERMOSTAR, BUT WHEN WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE PART THE EMPLOYEE ASKED WHAT WAS THE TROUBLE. WE EXPLAINED, HE SAID YOU DEFINATLY DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR TANK AND ASKED IF WE HAD A SINGLE HANDLED FAUCET WITHIN THE HOUSE. NO WE DONT. HE SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE WATER IS MIXING WITH THE COLD WATER THATS THE REASON FOR THE WARM--COLD--WARM WATER. COME TO FIND OUT SINCE WE ARE REMODLING THE BATHROOM, WE HAD BOTH THE HOT AND COLD WATER TURNED ON IN THE SHOWER--BUT WERE PLUGGED OFF AT THE SHOWER HEAD AND THE FAUCET UNTIL THE TILE IS INSTALLED. SOOO ALL MY HUSBAND HAD TO DO WAS TURN OFF THE WATER IN THE SHOWER. NOW WE HAVE PLENTY OF HOT WATER, NO WARM COLD. YEA!!!

Hot and cold water alternating in cold line


sounds like you have a recirculation line which means you should have instant hot water,the old school way was a pipe ran back to water heater from end of hot supply.they now have units that go under sink have not used one yet but these units can do what you are describing.find your hot water source and see if you have recirc line

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.
