I can't get any hot water out of my Tuscany shower faucet. There is plenty of hot water coming to the back of the cartridge, but nothing coming out of the shower head. How do you adjust for this?? Thank you John Slaby

Remove the handle. there should be a green or red plastic ring that limits the travel distance of the cartridge into the hot zone. It should pull straight off. Either turn it and replace it back onto the cartridge, or just remoave it permanently.

Installed a new faucet and no water comes out


Since your question is so vague (is it a shower, tub/shower, lavatory, kit. sink or laundry tub faucet) I'd have to say that the flow restrictor in the aerators or showerhead is clogged up. Just unscrew and remove and either clean aerator or sh.head out and/or remove flow restrictor permanently. If that doesn't work turn off water and disconnect supply tubes from faucet and run them into a bucket and turn water back on to check for volume. If you have plenty of water at supplies then remove faucet and take defective faucet back to where it was bought and get another one!

Get hot water only....when rotated to cold get nothing....replaced cartridge but still the same.....shower has been unused since house was built


If you don't have easy access to hot and cold line, where you can disconnect and check for flow to faucet, You can try turning off incoming water supply, remove cartridge, and shut off hot outgoing at water heater, then slowly open incoming (cold) water supply only and see if cold flows from faucet with cartridge removed. At least that will confirm flow faucet, then go from there.

We have two showers one works perfect the other only cold water comes out when turned towards hot nothing happens..what is this


Sounds like the anti-scald pressure balancing piece is stuck. This happens if the shower isn't used regularly. A varnish from minerals in the water causes it to stick. You can replace the cartridge or try cleaning this one by soaking it in white vinegar. When the cartridge is clean you should hear it rattle when you shake it. To prevent it from happening again be sure to run the hot and cold water at least once a week. BTW, if you are the original owner of the faucet Moen will send you a new cartridge free.

When you turn to hot it doesn't come out. Cold does.


Assuming that you have hot water at other faucets the problem could be a varnish buildup in the cartridge. After shutting off the hot and cold water either by turning off the main or at the faucet stops (if equipped), remove the cartridge and soak it in white vinegar to break up the varnish. You can clean it up with an old toothbrush and make sure that it is working. It should rattle when you shake it. new cartridges are not very expensive so you can just buy a replacement at any home center as well. If you are the original owner of the faucet Moen will send you a free replacement cartridge if you call them.

these valves can be adjusted by removing the handle and adjusting the white gear that regulates the hot and cold that come out, try going more to one way if it gets colder then go the other way.

No cold water


Anti Scald Valves have an adjustment under the handle (remove handle) to allow so much hot water in no matter how far handle is turned. Its possible that the adjustment is set to allow only hot water in, this of course defeats the purpose of anti-scalding. Check to see if you can adjust this back. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was of any help.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

Delta Series 1400 shower faucet, no or very little water out of the cold side of the faucet. Plenty of hot water. What can I do to fix this?


Remove the handle by opening the little red/blue cap. Use a hex key to remove the handle. Remove the tope ring holding in the cartridge in. Take out the cartridge and you will most likely see particles blocking it. make sure you use a little valve lube or vasline on the seals before you put it back in so you will have smooth operation. If that doesnt cure it just replace the cartridge at lowes or home depot and bring the old one.
