How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet

The shower is too cold. Hot water is working fine in rest of the house. Not sure of the model, but it is a basic single lever shower faucet.

Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

We have a recurrent problem with our anti-scald valve, in that from time to time (at about monthly intervals) it will supply only cold water to the hot line.

I found that shutting off the cold supply to the water heater, and then draining off about half gallon of water from the bottom of the tank, with a sharp rap delivered to the anti-scald valve prior to restoring the cold supply to the tank , takes care of the problem (till the next time). I
Its quick, cheap, easy and works for us.

You may have to remove the valve and clean it the cold water side may be plugged up causing it not to allow enough cold water to go threw the facet.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

No hot water on Moen single handle shower faucet. cold ok and shut off is fine


do you have hot water elsewhere? if not, might be that your water heater is not heating.
if you do have hot water elsewhere, did you let the faucet run for a minute or 2.
did you have hot water before? is this a new house? new valve?
need a little more detail.
on posi temp valves, if there were no water coming out of the hot side of the valve, the valve will not operate.

To clean it, shut off the discharge valve at the water
heater. Then, you shut the valve off of the main water supply. After which, you can start cleaning the single
knob shower cartridge. After the cleaning job, you can
open the discharge valve of the water heater, then, the
valve of the main water supply.

No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet


Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

MOEN POSI-TEMP GOES FROM HOT TO COOL AFTER 30 SECONDS OR SO


Wow A Mystery Faucet!!! SOUNDS LIKE THE WATER LINES FEEDING THE FAUCET MAY BE SWITCHED. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE COLD FEED GOES TO THE COLD SIDE AND THE SAME FOR THE HOT. SOMETIMES MISTAKES ARE MADE WHEN INSTALLING THE FAUCET. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CONNECTED THE SAME AS THE 2 THAT ARE WORKING. IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND PATIENCE, YOU CAN TAKE A WORKING FAUCET AND INSTALL IT IN PLACE OF THE (mystery faucet) AND SEE IF YOU HAVE THE SAME RESULTS. IF YOU GET HOT WATER IN THE TEMPORARY FAUCET, THEN YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE FAUCET. THESE ARE A FEW TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS I HOPE THAT MAY HELP YOU.....JOE
