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.

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.

We just bought a house with a Glacier Bay single handle faucet in the shower. We only get scalding hot water from the faucet when we turn it on even if we move the faucet to cold. Pls help.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
You need to most likely change the inner valve cartridge. These Glacier Bay valves are sold at Home Depot and finding the correct replacement part will not be easy. Personal experience is to remove the old valve cartridge and walk into the store with part in hand. These valves use a ceramic insert / disc that locks into a groove of the cartridge. If the ceramic piece has drifted out of place they usually break off the inner locking tabs.

Should the store you visit not have the part you need... read these links:

Also read the 23 March article on this link near the bottom of the page:
http://glacierbayfaucet.org/buy-glacier-bay-faucet-parts-online Heading name is
Infromation Technology

Let me just add something........ check with your realtor about your HOME WARRANTY. This repair may very well be covered by the home warranty.

My honest opinion.... the sooner you get rid of the Glacier Bay Shower control the happier you will be. These controls were at one time Marketed under the in store name Pegasus.

I did not intend to ruin your day but... I do want anyone reading this to be advised of the consequences of buying inexpensive shore controls.

A word of advice when purchasing a new control valve. Pay for the good name ONCE and make sure the repair parts are in the same store where you make the purchase. It will cost you less in the long run. Have the sales person show you the repair parts for the MODEL that you are thinking of buying. Delta, Moen, Price Pfister are 3 names that have been around a long time and have repair parts readily available in the marketplace. (end rant)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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
