On all showers, there is a mixing valve behind the wall. With out knowing which type of faucet I can't give proper details, but generally if has just started on its own to do that, the vavle either needs cleaning or replacement. Most valve manufacturers offer lifetime replacement parts, I know Koehler and American Standard do, so parts shouldn't be an issue. They can also walk you through minor repairs as well. If you need further assistance let me know and if I can get the model number of your fixture, maybe download the schematics, and assist you more.

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

Warm water only


You can eliminate the shower control knob possibility by turning on your hot water anywhere else in the house. If you get hot water in other places, then it could be the knob causing it. A substantial lime buildup in the tank can also cause poor heat transfer from the elements to the water.
