    Our older shower (60's-70's ish) is having issues... the hot water knob works just fine... however the cold water one just spins, nothing comes out. I tried taking the plastic decorative cap off the front of the knob, and played around with the screw inside (to see if it was just the knob that was loose) - that did nothing. Last night the shower worked perfectly! Any suggestions?
    thank you!

    Take off the knob . You will find that the knob grooves (where it fits over the cartridge) and or the plastic cartridge insert is stripped. Replace the knob or the insert (which ever pertains to you)
