Why would there be hot water coming from the tub faucet but not from the shower head?
The mixing valve is messed up...It's easier to fix than figure out.

Answer . There could be a lot of reasons. Hot water entry point clogged, hot water heater out, Hot water line broke or not hooked up. If this problem has only happened sinc…e the shower has been replaced or serviced, the chances are that there is a hot water safety that just needs to be adjusted. Take off the handle, look at the assembly, you should see a plastic sleeve or knob that can be turned. This knob stops that handle from turning past a certain point which restricts the flow of hot water.
What would be the cause of no flow of hot water to the shower via the head and faucet when cold water flows to the faucet?
Answer It could be a blocked pipe or a damaged valve. Do you get hot water in other areas of the house? If not, check the valve on the water heater. If other parts of the hou…se get hot water, replace the hot water valve assembly or repair the hot water valve. If you have hot water at the sink, but not in the shower, the hot water side of the shower valve is clogged by something like rust. Esp. if you have had the hw heater replaced. and you have galvanized pipe instead of copper. Esp if your sink aerators get clogged by rust particles. Search for fixing Delta faucets, open up the valve, and flush out the rust. Buy a kit for replacing parts while you have it opened up.
\n. \n HOT WATER PROBLEMS \n. \n. \nYOUR HOT WATER TANK NEEDS TO BE REPLACED\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \nIt could be cross connected, I would turn on any faucet, then… go listen at your\nwashing machine and see if you hear water running through the hot and cold valve\nwhere your hoses hook on. If you do you need to replace valve on machine. If it is\na new house they may have tied the hot and cold water together. That is very very\nhard to find. You would have to call a plumber for that and then hope for the best.\nStill try the washer even on new house.
1- plugged shower head. 2- defective diverter
I have just the opposite problem.. I'm only getting very hot water coming out of shower head.. What I've been reading is it's most likely the mixing valve/anti-scalding valve….. As long as you are getting normal water temps and pressures from your sinks then you should either replace or repair the showers mixing valve.. The best I can explain the way the mixing valve works is it uses the pressure of both the cold and hot water to limit the amount of either hot or cold water that it will let pass through it. If the valves don't slide properly do to dirt or any thing that may build up on the valve or valve seats then the mixer valve can't do it's job properly.. Hope this helps. Ken
Why do you get hot water out of your bathtub faucet but only warm water when you change it to the shower head?
conduction and heatloss. study laws of thermodynamics.
Why does water come out of the shower head while you are filling the tub from the spout with warm water?
4 BRAND NEW tub and shower combos units installed later.........I FIXED IT! I asked EVERYONE from certified master plumbers, 3 different fixture companies, to the know all, …hear all, salesmen. NOTE, I USED 1/2" PEX. I was told the faucet was bad, so I changed it out. I was told the new one had a faulty diverter, so I changed it out and went with a new brand. I installed the new one and it continued to drop water from the shower head while filling the tub. Next, I was told the water pressure was way too much and I needed a pressure regulator at the main entrance, so I installed that on my house also. Now, we had low(er) water pressure AND the original issue. In addition, my wife was so disgusted she purchased a brand new shower unit and decided we would scrap the previous companies. By now I've about had it with everything, BUT, I'm not a plumber caller, I'd solve the issue. Here we are 5 DAYS LATER, and I figured it out!!! With the NEW unit installed I had to go to the downspout, (which was 1/2" PEX) AND INSTALLED 1/2" BRASS TUBING. ISSUE RESOLVED..........THIS IS WHY!!!! PEX is AWESOME AND I LOVE IT, BUT, when you use 1/2" PEX for the elbows, tees, and nipples it is restricted down to about 1/4". That was producing a head pressure back, or, pressure backup, which, forced water to backup into the shower head (looking for an exit). With brass, copper or galvenized (not recommended) the 1/2" turn are true 1/2" turns, unlike the PEX downsizing. GOOD LUCK and I hope this helped!!!
Diverter not functioning and depending on which type you have would determine the type of repair or replacement
What would cause there to be no hot water in only one bathroom sink tub and shower - Everything comes out cold only?
\nEither the stopcocks feeding these lines are switched off or the lines could be blocked. Another thing to check is that the headparts are not jammed with debris.
D you mean tub spout and shower head???? If this is the question then your diverter is defective
Your cold water faucet handle broke in your tub and shower and after you replaced it now cold water continuously comes out of faucet how can you fix this?
Remove the handle, turn off the water with a wrench and reatache the handle in the correct position. Good Luck
Take apart the first one that water enters and look for blockage.
The single most likely reason would be buildup of rust or calcium particles in the valves and inlet. Many showers have a one-handle arrangement wherein the handle controls mov…ement of a ball. That ball has two very small inlet holes, roughly 3mm (1/8 inch) diameter each. If your shower has this type of arrangement (and not a newer maintenance free cartridge) you can turn off the house water supply, take apart the handle and ball device, remove and replace the springs and seats for the inlets, and clean the ball with an old toothbrush and CLR. If your water heater is very old, or if you have old iron pipes for your water supply, you are likely to experience this kind of problem more frequently.
How can you stop water leaking through the shower head when both cold and hot water are on but you want the water coming in through the tub faucet and not through the shower head?
You need to replace the valve that redirects water from the tub's faucet to the shower head .
well its fine we got someone to check ours because that happend to us they said its fine its just getting a little old also you could get a new one if you want if it makes you… mad when it happens The divertor is messed up of course
The tub spout diverter washer has had the biscuit, replace it.
Most likely, your tub spout is jammed.
