I installed a Moen L2353E tub/shower faucet and water won't come out of shower head


Couple of ideas: If you don't get water at all first check to see if the shut-off valves are open. If so, close them and remove and clean the cartridge. If water comes from the spout and not the shower head, make sure the diverter (the handle on the tub spout) moves up when you pull it. If that works, remove and clean the shower head since there might be debris blocking the water flow. Without
more info this is my best guess.

My hot water tanks turns on but no hot water. Their is a lot of air in the line


Double check that by-pass valves are in proper position, as well as any winterizing valve is in the off position. Some units have a winterizing valve and hose to put in jug for winterizing, that needs to be shut off otherwise it will suck air. Back of water heater- lower fitting is for cold water in, valve should be open, and top fitting is for hot out, which should be open as well. Any valves that may be in between those 2 lines such as a "t" between lines should be in off position. Keep in mind, water heater has to fill first before any good pressure will come out taps. I normally open bathtub hot tap because it\'s less mess and let it run until i get good steady flow from faucette, then do the rest, hot cold.

I have no hot water


If all the other faucetts in the house are ok, you probably need a mixing valve. They are pretty easy to change unless they are stuck in the valve but, usually with a little coaxing they come out fine. Pay attention to the tabs when you take it out so you can put back in the same way. If your hot and cold water are reversed, pull the valve otu and rotate 180 deg. and re-install. Here is a video:

I installed a dhc tankless heater, but when I open only the hot water everything is ok, but when I open the cold water at the same time the heater turns off.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is happening is that your cold water flow is greater in volume (gals per min) than your hot water. So when you open the cold water it is mixing with the hot water inside the faucett or shower plumbing and actually reverse flowing back into the hot water heater plumbing. The reverse flow slows the water flow sensing turbine inside the heater and it is thinking that there is not any water flow. (There isn't actually due to the equalization of water pressure when you open the cold water faucett) Since this is a safety feature of the tankless heater to keep it from overheating, it shuts off.
Somewhere in the hot water plumbing there is a major restriction. It may very well be the internal plumbing of the tankless hot water heater or the flow detector design.

There are 2 ways to correct this. The easy way would be to restrict the available cold water flow. You can do this by installing another shut off valve inline with the cold water plumbing and just not open the valve all the way. You would have to adjust the setting so that the hot and cold water can be on at the same time and the hot water heater stays on. The hard way is to locate the hot water flow restriction and eliminate it.
It is possible.... if you have a flow restrictor in a shower head or a screen in a faucett areator that they are partially clogged. Clean any flow restrictors and screens then see how the hot water heater performs before you start modifying plumbing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hi, I have a Triton Power shower, it has worked fine for the last few years but today the water stopped. The pump is still running but nothing is coming out. Would you have any ideas. Thanks, Gary


Hi Gary, Sometimes things like pieces of worn out faucett washers get in the shower head water line and clog things up. The only alternative is to disconnect the plumbing starting from the shower head back to the wall and start removing the pieces of rubber. There could be a problem with the impeller in the power shower pump but again you would have to gain access to the pump impeller and inspect it for damage. An impeller can fail in may ways... most of the time it is either broken blades of a broken hub of the impeller. Other times the housing for the impeller can be broken and water bypasses inside of the pump vs exiting the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Leaking shower head


Not unless you had a backward plumber , If the diverter at the faucet is open for tub, then no water will go up the shower, The shower may hold enough water up there to make it look like a drip, Even if the valve was leaking all the time, it would not go up, it would come out the faucet. It only works with pressure. Unless the valve was plumbed wrong,,, Hope this helps.

The all in one tub/shower faucet constantly flows. What can I do to fix this problem? Now I am a woman, so please make it simple.


Go to home Depot or loew and buy the seat replacement kit for your model of faucett. Your going to have to break out the tools (Philipps Screwdriver and a larger adjustable wrench) The remove the shower knob cover with a knife to access the mounting screw. Remove the screw and then the knob. (STOP!) Go turn off the water for the residence now! Then come back and remove the nut holding the faucett in place. The whole assy will with a little effort will come straigth out at you. Moen isnotorious for having to remove a plate from the bottom of the valve. NOTE the position of that plate and then remove it. Remove all of the seat seals one at a time and replace them with the new ones you purchased. Reinstall the NEW lower plate in the same position you removed the old one. Reinsert the assy back into the valve body. Tighten the retaining nut. Reinstall knob and secure with screw. Replace knob cover. Turn on the water NOW. Enjoy the non-leaking faucett.

Flow of water thru shower head is barely a trickle


There is a chance there is mineral deposits in the showerhead openings. You can try products sucha as limeaway by unscrewing the showerhead , soaking in the limeaway for a few minutes and rinsing with water. You may have to repeat this a few times to get it clean.

Water does not come from the shower head


Hi,
If your showre head has an external adjustment (usually on the face of the head) make sure that it is opened. Shower saver type valves have a push button on the pipe from the wall to the showerhead, usually close to or are a part of the showerhead. Make sure that it is opened, if you have one. Once done, remove the shower head and turn the water on. If you get water, look into the shower head. Most come with a water restrictor and it can come out of position and block the passage of water. The restrictors can vary in appearance, but usually they consist of a rubber washer and plastic disc, and are in the back of the showerhead where it unscrews from the piping from the wall. If you can get water without the shower head on, but no water through the showerhead, you can take it apart and look for restrictions or just replace it. If you cannot get water after all that, the problem is in your faucet or piping. Most Delta single handled faucets that I'm familiar with have a spring and cup washer valving arrangement. Those equipped with scald gard are somewhat more difficult to work on. Parts are available from H/Depot, Lowe's and similar. Hopefully the problem is in the showerhead proper, and not in the valve.
Best 'o luck, --W/D--
