In my rental unit, the shower [no tub, just shower] faucet is completely goofed up. It's a 1 handle faucet. The hot and cold water don't mix. If it was a clock, 'off' is 12:00. Turn counter clockwise to 11, 10, 9:00, the water is cold. The handle won't go past, say, 9 or 8:00. Turn clockwise back to 12:00, it's off. Turn it clockwise to 1:00 2:00, 3:00; it's HOT. I't won't turn past about 4:00 or so. There's no way to get warm water. Hot and cold are opposite each other; you can get only 1 or the other. My last tenant never complained about it, but my new tenant can't get it a comfortable temperature, and I can't figure it out either. Anybody?? Thanks in advance!
FIGURED IT OUT!! Thank you to those who answered- I appreciate your willingness to help! The handle was put on in the wrong position! I took it off and rotated it [pretty sure it was 180 degrees]. This made it so that when starting at 6:00, turning counterclockwise, it started with cold water, then continued to turn freely to get warmer, finally hot. I'm so glad it was a simple fix. Sometimes there is a free lunch!
