Check the hot water shut off valve, when the washer fails sometimes the valve itself sticks closed, and sometimes the washer breaks up and clogs water passageways down stream...
To test, pull the hose off of the hot water shut off valve, open the valve and see if you have water flow. (route hose into a bucket, you need more that a small amount of water.....
If you have good water flow from the shut off valve, then you likely have a particle that has lodged in the passageways of the faucet. Reverse flow with air pressure and see what you get out....

MY Moen single handle shower knob turns in a complete circle. From left clockwise, it goes from hot, tepid, cold, tepid, then back to left-hot. What causes this and how can it be repaired?

It sound like you have a Moen Posi-temp faucet and the handle is broken. It is probably an acrylic hdle with a tear drop shaped cover. Take a knife and slide it under the cover to pry it off. Unscrew the center screw and the handle will pull right off. You will see two shoulders inside the hdle, one of which will be cracked and broken. Replace the hndle which can be purchased at any Lowes or Home Depot. Plumbing supplies also carry replacements, but you can probably get one cheaper at HD or Lowes.. Make sure to use the washer provided. It has two flats on the inside of washer. Slide this over the brass stem on your cartridge, NOT on the hdle screw. Install it with the flats of the cartridge in horiz. position. Try faucet. If the water comes out in the opposite temp you expect, warm is cold, and cold is warm, remove the hdle, spin the stem 180 degrees and reinstall hdle.Good luck!

We have two showers one works perfect the other only cold water comes out when turned towards hot nothing happens..what is this

Sounds like the anti-scald pressure balancing piece is stuck. This happens if the shower isn't used regularly. A varnish from minerals in the water causes it to stick. You can replace the cartridge or try cleaning this one by soaking it in white vinegar. When the cartridge is clean you should hear it rattle when you shake it. To prevent it from happening again be sure to run the hot and cold water at least once a week. BTW, if you are the original owner of the faucet Moen will send you a new cartridge free.

Hot watwer leaks from the hot side of the facet

Replace the stem assembly (ceramic cartridge) with Price Pfister service part #910-030. Be sure to turn water on briefly to flush out any debris in the valve body before installing new part. NOTE: this valve does not like old galvanized plumbing.

No cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve, when i turn handle to cold I get hot water, when handle is turn to hot i get hot water

Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

Hi my delta single hanlde tub/shower facuet is leaking hot water bad

If its a ceramic cartridge type then replacing cartridge is called for, HOWEVER sometimes cheaper to replace complete tap.

If not ceramic then turn mains off and replace the washer inside.

Low hot water pressure

it sounds like you need to up the temp on your water heater so that you are mixing more cold with the hot .be careful hot water can cause burns if valve is 4 years old then it has a limit stop do not set above 120 *you will need allen key and thermometer to check temp
