    Under the handle is a hot limit stop it probably needs to be adjusted properly.
    Do you know what the model # is?

    Sounds like one of two things: the pressure balance spool valve is stuck, or there is some debris caught in the hot inlet. If there's an in-line stop valve, it could be closed. How old is the house? Could there be some galvanized pipes in there that are all clogged up with rust?

    Or the handyman melted down the cartridge...:mad:

    Answer the questions in the pull down menus under
    DON'T KNOW YOUR MODEL OR REPLACEMENT PART NUMBER?

    At this link and find your valve.
