shower had no cold water. Sink in b-room works fine. Shower starts hot and stays hot. Is this valve my problem?

Asked by: mike
Yes, this valve is the likely culprit. This valve is supposed to "balance" the hot and cold water so you don't get scalded or frozen when the water pressure changes. However the rubber diaphragm inside of this unit is pretty much guaranteed to fail after 5 - 10 years, and the brass valve attached to the diaphragm can get stuck in the hot or cold position. Keep in mind that the mixer valve and washers can also fail, and when they do, you'll get a drip, drip, drip. I have two of these valves in my house and the mixer failed in one and the balancer failed in the other within around 7 years f when the valves were installed. You might want to think about replacing both while you're in there.

Do both the cartridge and the mixing valve need to be replaced if leaking

I replaced the cartridge but not the mix valveand it stopped the leak for about a month but now has started leaking again
Asked by: Falente
They are expensive, if you have time try replacing it and see what happens, and replace the other if still leaks, these are very low quality, so good luck.

how can i find the model number on my old cartridge or rite temp valve

Asked by: godfather
I don't have the link, but if you go to the Kohler site you can figure it out from the various pics of the valves they have. I could not find a model number anywhere on the parts themselves.

But it's almost guaranteed to fail within 7 years. There are few things more annoying than parts that are designed to fail after a few years, and are a lot more expensive than they should be. If your shower only gives you hot or cold water, it's because this valve failed. Take a look at the photos. This is what a 7-year old disassembled balancer valve looks like. As you can see the rubber seal that used to be attached to the brass diaphragm has disintegrated. The valve got stuck in the "cold" position and stayed there. If your shower drips, but you still have *both* hot and cold water, then the drip is because a rubber washer or mixer valve failed, not this balancer valve. However disassembling everything is a bit of a nuisance, so you may as well replace the mixer valve, the washers, and this balancer all at the same time and then start the countdown to another failure in 7 years.

Valve was in stock at store but I had to order Pressure Balancer. Figured I might as well replace both as a set. Directions were pretty clear. Notice there is a notch on the back side that mates/aligns with the brass valve core.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match It was a perfect match for the old Kohler shower mixing valve from 2004. This one is held together with rivets and not a SS nut and bolt. My old one failed from the rubber diaphragm 'dissolving" inside where the mixing piston resides and no longer was able to switch from hot to cold water temperature. Just make sure you change seals and "O"-rings provided.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kohler Shower Valve Cartridge This was a perfect replacement for our Kohler shower valve. in the end, we needed to replace the shower valve mixing cap to get our hot water flowing again, but we decided to keep this piece in to compliment the mixing cap.
