SOURCE: & Single Handle Shower Faucet : how to adjust to get hotter water...

First step remove handle and behind it there is a dial that looks like a gear. Mark where it is and remove it and put back in about a 1/4 to 1/8 turn counter clockwise to increase to hotter temp.

These faucets are equiped with anti scald setting's to protect the public and preset for this reason.

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.

The handle stops mid way between hot and cold. The water gets barely lukewarm.


Have you tried adjusting the temp control setting behind the handle. Remove handle and mark the dial or remember where it located and slide it out of place so you can move it counter clock wise maybe a 1/4" turn and put handle on and turn faucet on and check for hotter water.
It is a anti scald valve and it's preset to a certain temperture for safety.

I believe I have a delta monitor shower faucet. I am wondering why the hot water pressure is less than the cold water pressure. Also, I am wondering what size hex head I need to remove the lever so I can...


It takes a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. To increase hot water flow remove plastic dial that sets temperature. It is right behind handle and slides off stem for easy adjustment.

Remove indicator and replace about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clock wise to increase to hotter temperature.

We have a newly installed Delta single-handle shower faucet and cannot figure out HOW to get a warm water mix. No matter where we turn the handle, we get different temperatures of "cold."


That is a graduated water mixer valve, and it sometimes has a little white water restrictor blocking flow from your hot water port. See if that was left in by removing the handle with all water shut off to the valve and reattach then try again. This can also happen if you have a tankless water heater because pressure controls heat. Typically a Tankless water heater system will require little, to no cold water to your bathtub valve because of the heavy water flow at the tap. Remember, flow equals temperature. Less flow = more heat, more flow = less heat.

Need to increase the water temperature moen 270/3371


Remove handle, now you should see two white plastic pieces one slid inside the other. The inside piece should look like a gear. If you slide it out and rotate to the left a couple of teeth this will allow for handle to advance farther and in turn give you hotter water.

THE SCALDGUARD ALLOWS VERY LITTLE HOT WATER HOW TO CHANGE TO BEABLE TO FILL TUB I HAVE A DELTA#T13220 I CAN'T THE HANDLE OF EITHER


Hi,
You probably need to adjust the faucet to give you hotter water.
The other problem can be low water pressure... if your cold water pressure is low or there is a restriction in the line, it willl also restrict the hot water flow.
Follow these instructions to pull the whole valve assembly out and check the water flow of the cold water with out anything in the valve body. This will tell you if the problem is in the piping of the valve.
