This is a pressure balancing valve that needs both cold and hot water pressure to operated. It is an anti-scald safety operation.

Good Luck, Phil

My Danze showerhead runs even when turned off


try cleaning the inside of the valve with 1500 grit wet sandpaper. and then put a lot of waterproof plumbing grease in there and also on the cartridge. sometimes you can get a build up of hard water inside the valve body and that will cause leaks. just dont over do it with the sandpaper and dont anything more abrasive than 1500 grit.

Leaks again


This is almost always caused by debris in the plumbing from the pipes or the water heater.

Sometimes it is caused by a defective OEM cartridge. Always buy genuine Moen parts.

Remove and inspect the cartridge. While it is out, briefly turn the water to the valve back on to insure the valve is free of particles and then reinstall. If the drip persists you will need to replace the cartridge again. Always flush the valve before installing new parts.

Very little cold water from shower valve


If this is a new installation and has always beenj this way, then I would suspect that there may be an obstruction in the cold water line leading to the valve. Or something stuck in the valve at the point where the cold water is connected. If someone has worked on thius valve recently , then I would suspect that they got the valve cartridge in backwards, If the catridge is not placed in the valve correctly the opperation is messed up.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

Faucet issue


Sounds like it was installed upside down or the cartridge is installed improperly

Kohler shower facuet pressure balancing problem?


ever since the pressure balancing regulations came out for shower valves, they have went from simple to very complicated devices. sounds as if some foreign material caused the valve to stop working. that valve is quit difficult to reassemble correctly because there is only one way it works and can be assemmbled many ways that do not work concerning alignment of the ports. if you dissassemble it and check that all the moving parts are functioning in the balancing cartridge you can then look closely at the alignment of the ports on the cartridge that the handle is connected to. understanding how the port align as the handle is turned should assist you in assembling it correctly......hope this helps.

Pressure problem with Kohler shower faucet??


Hi pglaw,

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.

If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.

Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil
