Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet

1 Answer

The design for the shower changed from 1 1/2 inch wall to a 1 inch wall. This is after the valve was installed. Do we need to move the vavle back or will the plate and handle still work?

Looking for an extension valve for shower faucet #108 191 Glacier Bay product.


Fixya is not a buying service. You may have to have the "plumber" redo the job; he forgot to measure the setback distance allowing for surface mounting of the escutcheon.

Adjust hot water on hansgrohe metro shower


The hand shower and wall bar does not control temp. The valve in the wall would control the temperature of the water going to the shower. I would need to be able to identify the model number of the valve in the wall to be able to give accurate instructions on temperature adjustment. If you need help identifying this valve feel free to give me a call at Hansgrohe 1-800-334-0455. Press 2 for tech and ask for David Scarborough

Shower gets too hot the thermostat does not seem to control the heat


On all showers, there is a mixing valve behind the wall. With out knowing which type of faucet I can't give proper details, but generally if has just started on its own to do that, the vavle either needs cleaning or replacement. Most valve manufacturers offer lifetime replacement parts, I know Koehler and American Standard do, so parts shouldn't be an issue. They can also walk you through minor repairs as well. If you need further assistance let me know and if I can get the model number of your fixture, maybe download the schematics, and assist you more.

I can't get the old s bar off for a new shower head installation. It won't give. I'm referring to the pipe from the wall to the shower head. I have a new longer s bar.


remove trim ring around pipe and look at connection to be sure it is indeed threaded in. spray a penetrating oil,preferably with an extension tube,on to connection in the wall. 'rap' on the pipe with a wrench,the vibration helps the oil to penetrate.when it starts to move,go back & forth /spray it again,to clear corrosion as it's removed.

Walk in shower leak into room below


I would unscrew shower head pipe and either pipe dope it or tefilon the threads and then reinstall it. I would also take the handle(s) rosettes off and look for a leak from there with a flashlight, while shower is on. I believe the most comon leak for walk in showers are the door seals. Are you sure it is not coming out from under the door? Another test that yuo may want to preform is to Stopper the drain, fill the shower pan with water and watch for bubbles, or look for leaks from below.

Shower spout


There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.

Shower/spout


The valve is installed upside down and needs to be reversed. There is a diverter in the valve that gives the spout priority. When the valve is upside down it gives the shower head priority. Thats why it runs without the diverter being activated. You will need to get in the wall from one side or the other. Cut the valve out and either flip the faucet Or change the direction of the diverter depending on the style of valve.

Good Luck, Phil

How do you install body jets for a shower


Hi mickgosney
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber

Your question is how to tighten up in the wall without putting a stud wall in for kyra body jets.

Kyra sells about fifteen models and they are all designed to be installed in a wall of some type.
The wall lends some very nessessary support to the valve body so that the whole thing dosen't move when the handle is adjusted. Wood stud, metal stud and concrete are typical structures. If you are trying to install on a free standing shower I recomend at least some kind of creative frame to support the valve.
Feel free to contact me again.
