SOURCE: glacier bay kitchen faucets with 2 handles and a sprayer
to be honest with you if there is a problem the glacier bay brand is from home depot and they are usualy around 20 to 30 dollars the replacement stems are usualy 15 to 40 depending on the part plus the hours ur gonna spend fixing it your better off with a full replacement. if replaced keep in mind you might want to replace the supliy lines to the faucet with stainless steal suply lines to ensure no leaks and if your shut offs are old dont touch them shut off your water main and drain down your house by opening all the faucets and shower valvs in your house then drain at the lowest point in the house weather it be a sink in the basement or an out side faucet once the supliy lines and faucet is in place then close all the faucets you opened and slowly turn on the water to your house slowly and this will ensure you dont have any leeks from your shutoffs good luck your friendly plumber

You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.

SOURCE: hot water comes out lukewarm
Pop out center of handle, and remove the screw from center, and remove handle. There should be a little nylon gear like sleeve that will pull out from center. Pull it out, and rotate it one way or the other, a little at a time, and slide it back in. Now just slide your handle on long enough to try it, no need to attach with screw yet until your done. May take a few tries to get it where you want it, then simply put handle back on, secure it with the screw, and snap cap back over screw.

Pull apart the front of the valve and there is a limiter that is set to limit hte hot water, you need to adjust that limiter. I find many valves are shipped with teh setting too cold.
