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.

I recently had a Glacier Bay single handle shower faucet installed. The hot water is barely lukewarm. What is the problem?


Inside the handle assembly there is an adjustment for the anti-scald feature. If the installer left you the owners manual,it should have instructions how to adjust it. If not, have the installer come back to adjust it.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

Glacier bay single valve shower has low pressure. looking for schematic to see how the gears inside should be placed


The "gears" are simply to restrict the handle from turning to too hot a setting. Mostly if you install them lined up to the top you'll have maximum handle travel to the fully hot setting if that's what you want. Remove the shower head and see if the flow from the pipe is strong. If it is then the blockage is in the head itself. Check for buildup in the screen and clean it out. There is also most likely a flow restrictor in the head which can be pulled out with needle nose pliers. If the cold runs OK and it's just the hot that's slow you may need to clean the cartridge in whit vinegar to free up the pressure balancing slider.
