Hot and cold backwards on a moen shower faucet

A single handle moen shower faucet was installed in the shower with turning to the right giving me hot and all the way to the left giving me cold (backwards). can this plumbing problem be fixed without going behind the tiled wall?

    How is this removed without damaging the button or handle? There is suddenly too much play in the handle and the shower never turns completely off.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

Can you adjust hot to cold ratio on moen single handle shower faucet


Pull off the handle and there are limiters located under it. They come set with not enough hot allowed, I have found. It is an anti scalding issue.

If this is a Moen posi temp valve you may need to adjust the temperature limit stop. It is located under the handle. Usualy a plastic peice with grooves in it so it fits in another peice in the valve. If I remember right you pull this peice out and turn it counter clockwise to get more hot water. Do this in small increments and reassemble and test. I hope this helps.

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.

I have a new moen single handle shower faucet that is only giving one temp of water (cold). Only if I have it on very slow will I feel hot water. Any idea how to fix


Did the hot water shut off get turned back on fully after the change? Is the hot water line kinked under the sink? Is the hot water shut off valve working?
