Shower Valve help

Recently purchased my first home and I noticed that the shower valve handle acts strange when rotated. The valve is a single handle unit so normally looking at the knob turning counter clockwise the shower goes from cold to warm when fully cranked. Mine starts off cold, gets warm as I get to the middle, turning it a bit more turns it off, and fully turned gives me medium temperatures. Nowhere does my water get hot. I have confirmed that the rest of the house has no problem getting any hot water in the 3 sinks. This has me a bit worried but that's why I'm asking, I'm not a plumber so I figured I would ask what I should consider. To me it sounds like a valve adjustment/replacement but I can use some advice.

Thanks in advance.

PK*, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
You may have a scald-guard shower system. These can be adjusted internally for the temps you want. You'll have to find the brand and Model number on the unit. You can then access the manufacturers website for instructions on adjustment. Good luck.
