SOURCE: Not enough hot water

Some higher end models do have an adjustment that is behind the face plate. You would have to remove the handle and the screws in the faceplate to expose them. If you have adjustments they will be located on the brass valve body facing you. You will need a flashlight and a flathead screwdriver to make the adjustment. If your model is not equipped with adjustments you could have a faulty valve stem. The stem is comprised of a rubber band like gasket that separates port holes into which the waters flow. There could be some piece of trash blocking the port not allowing adequate water from the hot side into the valve.Some valves stems are also able to be installed upside down causing the same issue as the ports do not rotate fully to allow adequate supply. However you say that you have adequate pressure on the hot side but not warm enough. There is another possibility also based on the way the shower supply was plumbed but there is no need to go into this unless this does not resolve your issue. I hope this is of assistance and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower

make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.

SOURCE: Insufficient hot water from Gledhill pulsacoil 2000

changing the shower head will not do anything.to do what you want,you would need more BTU's or a bigger unit to supply more water,someone may be hogging the water also.

The valve cartridge needed to be gently pried/wiggled free. It actually has two plastic pins that seat into the brass body. All fixed!

There is no hot water


Hi Marshall,

Do you mean that no hot water is reaching the shower, or do you mean that no hot water is coming out of the shower. The answer to this will determine where the problem is.

If no hot water is reaching your shower, then there is probably a problem with the boiler or the pipe is blocked. You can easily test this. You can turn on other faucets in the bathroom to check whether any hot water is reaching those.

If the problem isn't with the boiler and the shower is in fact receiving hot water, then the problem will be with the shower mixer valve, specifically the thermostatic cartridge. The cartridge controls water temperature. The inner workings of the cartridge move up and down to adjust the amount of hot and cold water entering the cartridge. If it has seized up, the moving part can get stuck in a certain position. It sounds like this could be the case with you and therefore replacing the cartridge should in theory fix the problem.

Hope this helps. Shower Thermostatic Cartridge Spares

Shower valve making banging noise pressure balanced even after changing cartrige


turn hose water off. open facet at lowest level to drain out lines. open a few faucets around the house to let air in. then close everything up. turn water back on. repressurize system by turning some faucets back on. see if it still happens. this is letting air back into any anti-water hammer devices that might be in system. sometimes they loose the air in them that makes them work. this should add air back in. good luck.

Replace your Tempering valve cartridge.

This will cost a couple bucks for that cartridge.

The thermostatic mixing spool cartridge may be worn out. The low water pressure may indicate sediment in the cartridge as well. This can be easily removed by hand tools

When i turn the hand valve to the hot side the flow of water stops. I checked the water line from the hot waterheater and hot water goes to other faucets.


This sounds like a bad cartridge motor. Turn off the water and remove the cartridge from the valve. You will have to remove the cap, knob, screw and cartridge clip. Pull the cartridge out (carefully) and inspect it for loose parts, plugging, or if the spool valve is blocking the hot water port. If it is, it's defective and will need to be replaced. You should be able to get a replacement at most home improvement stores.
