The first thing I would do is to start over Remove the cartridge and look behind it to make sure the Quad seal and seats and springs are all in place, It sounds like a least one of the seats fell out of their home. Also double check that the spring are in correctly with the tapered end pointing towards the cartridge. The link below may or may not be helpful.

    How is the heat control cover removed? Does it screw off? Does it pry off? What does it take to remove it?

The handle stops mid way between hot and cold. The water gets barely lukewarm.


Have you tried adjusting the temp control setting behind the handle. Remove handle and mark the dial or remember where it located and slide it out of place so you can move it counter clock wise maybe a 1/4" turn and put handle on and turn faucet on and check for hotter water.
It is a anti scald valve and it's preset to a certain temperture for safety.

Only warm water from the tub/shower


You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

Faucet may be bad also the safety stop will alow you to change water temp it can be tricky to adjust water temp.

Shower faucet does not switch to hot.


Hi,

This has happened to me in the past and had exactly the same symptoms but with a different valve. Before trying the below, it may make sense to be 100% sure that hot water is definitely getting to the valve .. can you get access to touch the hot feed pipe to make sure that it is in fact the valve at fault.

The following could be the issue:

1. The shower valve has a bit of dirt or gunk in it and is unable to allow the hot water through. It can happen with a very small amnount of dirt and is a real pain as it requires disassemble of the entire valve assembly.

2. The valve has failed and needs to be replaced - This was the solution to mine and was also significant in terms of effort.

Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Installed a new 88976 handle but still have a leak


replacing just the handle cannot fix the leak and common sense should tell you that.... try turning off the water to the diverter (thru access panel on opposit wall or main water valve for the home) and then replacing the stem or cartridge inside the diverter -- this is what controls water temp, pressure, and is responsible for any leaks you may have...

you need an allen key to remove the handle once the handle is removed than you need to turn the grey plastic temp guide counter clockwise as far as possible
