Price Pfister Shower Faucet

Just installed new single valve and the hot water is not as hot as it was with the old Meon. It's still how at the sink so its not the water heater. Is there any adjustments on the plastic parts to be made to increase the hot temp.

Like when you turn the handle to FULL HOT it is only OK. Usually you have a mix of cold and hot by the handle location and gradually add more hot the longer you are in the shower. Not here, it is only tolorably hot at full Hot.

[SIZE=3]Sure sounds like a water heater bottom element gone out, or the dip tube is broken.

There are no ajustments to the shower valve.

Well unfortunately, the sink in the bathroom works fine; as well as, Kitchen and Bath in Basement.

Maybe needs a new cartridge? Is it possible that the cartridge is not set right where it is catching too much cold when should be hot? This tells you what I know.

For shower control valves I believe Price Pfister has a settable "limit" for the hot water to prevent scalding. Pull off the handle and behind it you will find a gear like device which you may have to gently pry out. This device is rotated in one direction or the other to increase or decrease the amount of hot water blended with the cold. It is there to prevent scalding. The directions that came with the valve are very clear on how to adjust this.
