If you didn't install it and it never worked corectly have the installer come back and fix it on his dime. If you paid for it to be done right you shouldn't have to fix it.

That is a quality faucet. The hot water hose might be kinked. Another common problem is an old angle stop valve that might need replaced.

When shutting off the hot water valve below the sink, the washer might have broken up and small pieces are blocking the supply line to the faucet.
I would check that first and try to clear the supply hose.

When reconnecting the supply line, it requires hand tight plus 1/4 turn only, be careful to not overtighten.

I'm not too familiar with the moens but I do know some kitchen faucets have a stop/limiter/scald guard to prevent too hot of water. I know it sounds stupid. If this is the case you should be able to see it by taking the handle off.

thank you all for the reply. I will try to take the handle off and see if I see anything. I have left a message for the installer
