The knobs are for hot and cold water??

How do I adjust my exacttemp shower valve?


Where it suddenly became not hot enough, it's probably not an adjustment. It sounds like the stem needs to be replaced

No hoy water coming out on Moen shower faucet?


If you have hot water elswhere in the bathroom but not the shower head then the diverter valve in the handle for the tub is most likely bad and needs replaced. The diverter is also called an anti scauld valve, it mixes the hot and cold water to prevent scaulding you in the shower

Low hot water tempreture


Your question doesn't give me much to go on, but, If you have installed a new mixer valve in your shower and you can't get water that is hot enough to come out, there is a reason.

All newer mixer valves that I'm aware of have what's called a non-scholding setting that is done at the factory. ( I believe some manufacturers explain how to adjust this, in the paperwork you got with the part, if there are no children living in the home.) This is a child saftey feature, and if you want hoter water, you may have to raise the temperature setting in your water heater.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you for reading this. I am a non-technical home owner. I have a Groge Atrio shower with a thermostat mixer in the wall. The water does not get hot enough so I need to adjust it upward. Do I remove...


You didn't mention what model you have. Here is a link to their web site. You can download a manual, that has detailed instructions on how to adjust. You should have a thermometer to measure water temperature to adjust properly. Go to : http://www.groheamerica.com You can identify your model, and then download the technical product information. Also check the temperature of other faucets in the house to be sure they are getting hot enough, and not a water heater temp problem.

At shower time in the morning the hot water varies from cold on one day medium on another and hot on any given day. What's wrong?


Do you share your hot water with anyone? Is anyone washing dishes, laundry, etc before you shower? How old is your hot water heater? If it has filled with sediment, your hot water is limited. Try turning up the heat control valve on the hot water heater, only go up one notch today, then if not enough another the next day. Be cautious of scaulding hot water after turning it up.

Not enough hot water


Some higher end models do have an adjustment that is behind the face plate. You would have to remove the handle and the screws in the faceplate to expose them. If you have adjustments they will be located on the brass valve body facing you. You will need a flashlight and a flathead screwdriver to make the adjustment. If your model is not equipped with adjustments you could have a faulty valve stem. The stem is comprised of a rubber band like gasket that separates port holes into which the waters flow. There could be some piece of trash blocking the port not allowing adequate water from the hot side into the valve.Some valves stems are also able to be installed upside down causing the same issue as the ports do not rotate fully to allow adequate supply. However you say that you have adequate pressure on the hot side but not warm enough. There is another possibility also based on the way the shower supply was plumbed but there is no need to go into this unless this does not resolve your issue. I hope this is of assistance and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
