I just replaced a cartridge in my hot water shower handle to stop a leaky faucet, now the hot water pressure is less. It seems once cartridge is in place it doesn't have the range of motion it had when it is out

You need to go back in and check your work it seems that it has been installed in a lower setting look at the directions, most shower assembly's have energy settings.usually just have to move the stopper to the farthest point to the left (counter clock wise).good luck.

Replaced cartridge now only have hot water


You likely took out the anti-scald ring out when you took it apart and then put it in in a different spot preventing the handle from turning far enough. You may also have the cartridge or handle upsidedown.

Water will not flow through on american standard with pressure balance. Some hot water came out with low pressure then stopped and now nothing will flow.


I just spent a week wrestling with a similar problem, and I'm posting in an attempt to save someone else an ulcer. Using a Colony single-handle valve, the temperature got so we couldn't control it. Either all hot or all cold. I called A.S. and they sent a new pressure balancing cartridge and new valve cartridge. Replaced both and then there was no water at all coming out of the shower head. Tried every possible combination of old and new parts, flushed pipes, etc. Finally took the shower head off and found it completely clogged with debris. It was a mix of sediment and the white grease that was in the new cartridges, which must have been displaced when I started messing with it. And it clogged it all at once (no flow problems before all of this). Works fine now!

Why is my hot water so low on pressure with a single handle faucet. Parts have been replaced yet pressure reduces to less than half when trying to get enough hot water to shower and rinse. Could this be...


Remove handle and adjust the rotational limit stop. As you move the rotational limit stop counter clockwise it will increase more hot water in the mix.
Remember where it is before starting and pull in back onto shaft out of place so you can move it a little and put back into place. It should have marks to line up to get you different setting's. Just put handle on and turn on and check for desired hot setting.

The only way to adjust this is to pull it out of place due to it fitting in place like a gear and reinsert and check water.

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.

Water will not turn off


are the handle extensions on the cartridges all the way. i know sometimes the moens are a pain after you put the trim on to get them on and seated right so it actually spins the cartridge. also check the cartridge alignment the cartridges have little white tabs on the sides that correspond with a slot in the valve body if they aren't aligned it won't shut off either
