Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed

I just installed a Glacier Bay single-handled faucet for my shower. The markings show it starting with cold and rotating counter-clockwise to hot...only they are reversed. I rotated the cartridge 180 degrees and it still does the same thing. I am so confused. Please help! Thank you.

Behind the handle check to see if it has a dail to take out and replace at a different postion this will change the hot and cold. It a anti scald protection device. Don't remove cartridge just adjust dail.

Mark where you start and take out and move a 1/8-1/4 turn at a time and replace til temp desired. It has teeth like a gear you move to adjust temp.

SOURCE: Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed

Hello. It sounds like your plumbing was installed wrong, with the hot and the cold supply lines reversed. If that is the case, those supply lines will have to be replumbed to make your faucet work properly. Often, if those lines are accessable, it is only a 20 minute job. Joe

Glacier bay faucet manual


Contact glacier bay to get a replacement control/handle assembly. Usually their customer service department is good at replacing the parts under warranty

You should have individual cold & hot water supply shut-offs in your basement for your tub/shower; if not, now's the time to install them.

If I could be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Remove handle to gain acess to the temperature limit stop. Remove handle and pull out handle adapter kit and next there is a dail that can be adjusted to control the water to balance the temp. It could have been installed wrong, pay attention to where it is now and pull it back to it disengages out of the stem and move it counter clockwise a little and reinstall. Put handle on and test water for correct movement.

Remove handle and adjust the rotational limit stop. As you move the rotational limit stop counter clockwise it will increase more hot water in the mix.
Remember where it is before starting and pull in back onto shaft out of place so you can move it a little and put back into place. It should have marks to line up to get you different setting's. Just put handle on and turn on and check for desired hot setting.

The only way to adjust this is to pull it out of place due to it fitting in place like a gear and reinsert and check water.

I have a delta shower faucet that I just repaired and wonder how to adjust a thing called the rotational limit stop?It says see instructional sheet which I don't have.


There is a round ring with teeth. This can be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise to adjust the tempered water temp. This step will have to be repeted until you get the temp that you want. Should be no more that 105 degrees max.

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved
