    In most brands, remove a protective cap, labled H, with a small flat screwdriver. A screw, usually philips comes out next. This alows the handle to be removed. Then There should be a nut of various sizes. Remove this nut, counter clockwise. The valve should be ready to remove. Some pull straight out. Some turn counter clockwise to remove.

    In some cases you can replace the whole valve and any washers and o-rings inside. In some cases, You can buy a replacement kit for these. In older faucets 'usually brass', you might need to replace a worn seat, inside the fixture. This requires a seat wrench. Usually an L shaped steel bar with both ends tapered into a square.

Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

No water flow


Did this unit come with water stops built into the faucet body? Some of the newer faucets have stops built in and they need to be turned on. Also if you aren't going to plumb the hot in, you will need to cap it off but it should run without it unless it has some sort of balance in it. I don't think so though.
