Question about Hansgrohe Plumbing

1 Answer

Hot water comes out when i turn the thermostatic temp to the right. cold water comes out when i turn the thermostatic control to the left. Since hansgrohe is a German brand, is this correct? i believe that their systems are reversed compared to the states.

No, someone probably reversed the water lines in the wall, or if the cartridge was replaced, it was installed backwards.

try removing the cartridge and flipping it, and try it out....

this works on almost all grohe faucets

Whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water


Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

My thermostatic concealed shower valve only gives either boiling hot water or cold water, there is no inbetween temperature? the cold is fed from mains and the hot from a combi boiler. the plumber has said...


Hi,

If the hot and cold are fitted the wrong way round then the thermostat on the shower unit cannot operate properly!

Most thermostatic mixer showers have a 'bi-metallic' thermostat, if you supply the hot to the cold and vice versa IT WILL NOT WORK.

It is like wearing the left shoe on the right foot and the right on the left! It doesn't work.

Re-install the hot and cold to the correct supply, and this will sort it.

I hope this helps.

No hot water, plates cold and dirty and wet


If you've installed it recently make sure the hot water tap was plumbed in and not the cold water tap, check the hot water tap temp in the house to make sure it's getting warm, there also should be a heating element located inside of the dishwaher that heats up to help the dishes dry at the end of the wash cycle, which is controled by a thermostat. If the heating element or the thermostat are bad your dishes won't dry.

You do not mention what make faucet we are talking about.

Moen makes two styles of Shower valves
The one that you discribe is called a Posi-Temp the goes from off to cold and to hot as you turn the valve counter clockwise.
The pressure should be greater mid range ans the cold and hot water mix but generally not noticeable.

A Moentrol valve is that should have been iinstalled in order to have greater control on temp and pressure.
Moentrols work but turning the valve clockwise for cole and counter clockwise for hot and pulling out on the valve for the water to come on.

Defrost will not come out vents


Check your coolant level first. Next check your heater control valve. With engine at operating temp and heater on high, do this:

1. Heater hose from water pump should be hot (if not, water pump may be dead or thermostat is stuck closed)
2. Heater hose from thermostat housing should be hot (if not, thermostat may be stuck closed or water pump is dead)
3. Heater hose going to heater core should be hot ( if not, heater control valve is not getting vacuum from heater control unit, or valve is broken)
4. Heater hose returning from heater core should be hot (if not, heater core is blocked, undo both hoses to core and flush with water hose until clear)

Test thermostat: with cold engine cranked, watch water temp gauge. As it gets hotter and hotter, when the thermostat opens, the temp should drop suddenly and then go back up.

Test water pump: with engine at operating temp. Squeeze top radiator hose tight, when you release it, you should feel/hear a surge of water. It is much like when you pinch a water hose closed and release it.

Test vacuum from heater control unit to heater control valve: undue vacuum line from control valve. It should have a vacuum when pressed against you skin in addition to releasing the actuating arm on the control valve.

If there is no vacuum, a quick fix will be to disconnect the plastic actuator from the silver arm on the heater valve. This will let the hot water to always flow to your heater core.

My Atlantis Oversize Capacity Washer is the problem.When I select a Warm/Cold wash the water starts out warm, then kicks into hot water. So then I have to hit the Warm/Cold button over and over as it fill...


The temp is controlled by a thermistor to make sure the warm water is warm. If the incoming cold is too cold, or the incoming hot is not hot enough, it will compensate by turning off the cold until the temp comes up, then it should turn the cold back on. Make sure the hot supply is to the hot water valve. If the hoses are backwards it won't work right either. Or you may have a bad solenoid in the water valve. It's possible for a water valve to work when it's cold, but as electricity runs through it, the solenoid heats up and causes it to open electrically which will close it mechanically and turn the water off. Usually if this is the case it won't open again for at least 10 minutes until the solenoid cools down enough.
