Very little cold water from shower valve

Hi, I have a problem with one of my Kohler shower valve. Very little cold water is in the mix. I believe it is one of the rite-temp type...it has only one handle. Looks like it's plumbed with no valves in the line. Hot and cold water are directly plumbed. Is there a adjustment on the valve? Cold water is fine on all the other fixtures in the house (two other showers with same valve). Do I need to call a plumber?

If this is a new installation and has always beenj this way, then I would suspect that there may be an obstruction in the cold water line leading to the valve. Or something stuck in the valve at the point where the cold water is connected. If someone has worked on thius valve recently , then I would suspect that they got the valve cartridge in backwards, If the catridge is not placed in the valve correctly the opperation is messed up.

If the faucet was working before and then just stopped, it is the mixing valve or a clogged supply line.
turn the water off and remove the mixing valve. Turn the water on and see if you have good flow from both hot and cold ports inside the faucet.
Caution- this procedure can get messy, close the shower curtain or door.
Call Kohler and ask for a new mixing valve for free.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

Kohler shower valve (hot/cold switched)


Just had this same thing, on this exact faucet. If you still have the manual, it has instructions on how to rotate the valve for back to back installations where one shower has the hot/cold reversed. Our contractor got ours in backwards the first time and I had to call and have them come out and rotate the valve this morning.

Shower water temperature regulation


The temperature is adjustable. The valve has a disc you pull off the front of valve and then rotate the seat I believe counter-clockwise. If you get the paperwork for this valve from moen it is very explanatory. I can help further if needed, Let me know!

Pressure problem with Kohler shower faucet??


Hi pglaw,

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.

If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.

Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil

No water coming out of my Kohler Forte R10275-4-BN shower valve


This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.

Good Luck, Phil
