Only hot water from shower

We have a standard "single handle" shower that we rarely use. We discovered the other day that when you turn it on, only hot water comes on (even when set to the cold setting).

Could a defective valve cartridge cause this? If not, what might be the cause? Is this something I can do myself? I replaced a valve cartridge in our other shower with not too much trouble.

Manufacturer is Moen.

Thanks,

Andy

Yes, it could be a stuck cartridge. I had it happen in my seldom used spare bath shower. Replacing the cartridge took care of the problem.

Thanks Pilot Dane. That's exactly what it was. An easy fix. Couldn't believe the price of the cartridge though. $40 at the big box store (and it was noticeably lighter than the old one, which is 15 years old).
