Inside the handle assembly there is an adjustment for the anti-scald feature. If the installer left you the owners manual,it should have instructions how to adjust it. If not, have the installer come back to adjust it.

Glacier bay faucet manual


Contact glacier bay to get a replacement control/handle assembly. Usually their customer service department is good at replacing the parts under warranty

You should have individual cold & hot water supply shut-offs in your basement for your tub/shower; if not, now's the time to install them.

If I could be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

The handle stops mid way between hot and cold. The water gets barely lukewarm.


Have you tried adjusting the temp control setting behind the handle. Remove handle and mark the dial or remember where it located and slide it out of place so you can move it counter clock wise maybe a 1/4" turn and put handle on and turn faucet on and check for hotter water.
It is a anti scald valve and it's preset to a certain temperture for safety.

Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed


Hello. It sounds like your plumbing was installed wrong, with the hot and the cold supply lines reversed. If that is the case, those supply lines will have to be replumbed to make your faucet work properly. Often, if those lines are accessable, it is only a 20 minute job. Joe
