It depends on the brand of faucet. You should be able to remove the part and take it to Ace hardware ( or your local hardware store) to match it up. Otherwise, you can go to the manufacturer's website and enter in the model # with part description to find out if it's even available. With today's disposable society, many items are made to be thrown away and not repaired.
Hope this helps!

Do I have to use PEX tubing for an on demand unit,or just regular tubing?

You need to use a tubing -- PEX, CPVC, copper or galvanize -- that will handle the high-temperature water coming out of your on-demand waterheater. High-temp PEX is usually red in color, but check the labeling to be sure. Regular PVC (white) plastic pipe is not recommended for hot water applications and can fail -- usually at the joints -- without warning. If rigid plastic is your thing, use CPVC (almond-yellow color) and the primer/glue combination labeled specifically for it.

I replaced the plastic stem on a 8 in wide spread faucet and the hot water side starts running on its on after sitting a few hours and won't turn off

take the handle off and spin the cartridge 180 degrees there are little ears on the sleeve just pry it out and turn so the ares snap back in place but just turn it if it does not work turning it clockwise then take it out again and try it the other way its a trail and error thing you must turn the water off first or you will get awful wet

No hot water in shower

They have a anti-scald device on valve.remove handle there is a little white ring with teeth on it and a square stop that stops handle so that you don't get to much hot water,just pull out a little and rotate ring counter clockwise(I think it's been a while since I adjusted one).You may have to play with it a few times but it allows handle to travel further to hot side,allowing more hot water.

Not getting any cold water just hot water

One thing you can do to determine if this problem can be solved by installing a new cartridge. That is what I think you need to do. This won't take much time and it's easy to do.
Remove center cover on the handle and remove the screw that holds the handle on. You do not have to turn the water off as all you are going to do is remove the handle.Take handle off and note the position of the stem. It has two flat surfaces on it so it is easy to mark one, then turn stem 180 degrees from where it was. Put handle back on and try it. If you now have cold water but no hot then you need to replace the cartridge. If you do need to replace the cartridge I would get the brass one instead of the plastic. I know the plastic are much cheaper but I have much better results with the brass. thank you

Moen Single Handle Shower Faucet-turn on get cold, little hot

You can try to rotate the first plastic ring to the left of center a few teeth, this will let the handle advance alittle more to the hot side.

No hot water

under the handle of the faucet reached by removing the covering cap and single screw is a plastic geared device which limits the travel of the handle to the hot side carefully reorient so handle will turn a little farther and reinstall handle screw and cap

The plastic handles that dispense the water are broken

Where can I buy the spigets for a Sunbeam water cooler. I need one for hot and one for cold water. These handles are not strong enough plastic to last the lifetime of the unit. They should be made from metal. If the taps on our kitchen sink was made from plastic you can imagine how long they would last.
