    Re: shower body goes from boiling hot to freezing cold with no in between...HELP!

    A Plumber should always take out the cartridge while using a torch.

    Woppa..I would cut your losses and rip the darn thing out and return it.

    I'd say go get a Moen..but I know we have some delta fans on this website.

        i may have to return the shower body but would that involve the plumber having to install all new copper pipe (and taking out my wall) for a new shower body or would it be universal to any shower body i buy.

          OH the thermostatic valve. it is going to be in the handle not the cartridge. let me go thru something and I'll post back, I had a similar problem on a Moen thermostatic valve without stops and it was what I said earlier, let me pull up the specs
          I don't bite my finger nails, I KNOW when payday is, and yes, it can run uphill when it gets blocked(or you install a grinder pump) so HA!!!!

            Having a hard time finding the specs for tha tfaucet but will tell you it is going to be the way the cartridge aligns in the the handle and the "button" on the top.

                You could be on the right track with the Temperature not being set before the override.

                Still doesn't seem it should be that quick.

                  plumber01....even when i dont use the chrome piece with the button on top...and just turn the cartridge itself, i cant get warm water, which leads me to believe whatever is wrong excludes the red button which is to my understanding just a safety to not get scalded..but what you said about the cartridge may be true, can you elaborate at all?

                            i will be calling there number tomorrow to see if they can come up with anything else, also going to see if they sent me a refurbished cartridge (likely) on the off chance that this cartridge also is flawed.

                                I can not believe I can't find a spec or installation sheet on line GOOD GRIEF
                                I still think it is going to be something with the way the splines are lining up to each other
