SOURCE: how do you adjust temp. water luke warm?

These type faucets have anti scald dial setting that if you remove the handle you can gain access to it.
Just remove handle and mark or remember where it is and pull it out and reinsert it about 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

It has got marks on it and looks like a little gear.

SOURCE: Hello I have just installed a

This unit is indeed adjustable.
You'll need an adjustable wrench and philips and small flat screwdriver.
However the temperature water coming out the faucet should be the same as out the showerhead as these two are on the same pipe after the cartridge.
To adjust:
Pry off the cap on the handle. Undo the screw in the handle and remove the handle. Remove the collar below the handle with the tool provided and remove the collar.
Unscrew the backing plate and remove. Remove the plaster guard.
Remove the base nut and its retainer nut to expose the cam.
This cam can be used to adjust hot water temperature. Note its position, remove it and move clockwise of its present position to increase hot water temperature.
If youre not at the correct temp yet :
On both the hot and cold inlet pipes are stop valves that can be adjusted by screwdriver to increase/decrease water flow. Open both fully.(counter clockwise)

Heater not getting hot enough


Open the access door to the thermostat ( about 3" wide & 9" high, two screws) At the bottom of the thermostat there is an adjustment screw on an arrow and dial. Factory settings are at 120% for residential heaters. Reset to 135% is hot but it will not scald anyone. Higher temps are dangerous especially to those used to the old setting (if there are 2 doors reset both thermostats)

Remove cover plates from front of heater, usually four screws each.Seperate insulation enough to see and you will see the thermostat. It is factory pre set at 120 degrees and normally be adjusted to 140 degrees. Use a small blade screw driver to adjust settings. Ihope this helps you. Thanks

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.

Heats up the rapidly decreases within in minutes.


Problem new or old? How long you have unit? Sounds like not enough flow to keep burner on. Tankless need at least .6 gpm to keep hot water flowing or else the burner fires then shuts fires then shuts and you get a sandwich effect...hot cold hot cold. If you have new diverter valve in shower -vs- old two handle type try turning hot water ALL the way ON and see if hot stays hot. If it does stay hot then slowly adjust to cool and see if you maintain a good MIX for proper temp. If it goes cold again try this......LOWER control pad setting to a comfortable 105 degrees (ladies) 100 degrees(men) and turn shower valve all the way to HOT. See if your temp remains consistant now and if it does then problem solved. Tankless mindset...set temp on control pad and stop trying to MIX at shower valve. Thats how these things work. Thats why I install a control pad in each bath and one in the kitchen for adjusting ash temp during dishwasher on time. ditto for wash machine. You should never need to turn on cold water if your unit is set to proper temp at controller. Hope this helps

Not enough hot water in the shower even if I turn the handle all


Your valve has an anti-scald feature which automatically adjusts the water temp if cold water is diverted to another location, e.g., a flushed toilet, washing machine filling, etc. Most valves have an adjustment screw to allow you to set the temp. Since each manufacturer is different you'll need the manual or contact the manufacturers support. BTW, these anti-scald valves are being added to building codes in many parts of the U.S.

Temp lights changing before full wash


your hot water supply might not be getting to the machine.
check the filters in the hot water supply hose.
If the waters not hot enough the hot water light will flash,or you can go into Options adjustment,in your user manual,then adjust you water temperature, its is easy.
