My Shower Won T Turn Off

My Shower Won T Turn Off – I opened the Grohe shower control (Grohmix 34436000) for the first time to try to clean the thermo cartridge and can’t seem to figure out what to do next. I want to close the stop valve to stop the water. There are 4 screws in the attached picture and I suspect that screws “A” and “D” are the stop valves (since “B” and “C” do not turn clockwise). However, when I turn the A&D screws clockwise, they seem to keep turning. I turned screw “D” 20 full turns without feeling any resistance.

OK, I removed the middle metal panel and found the stop valve. The left stop valve seems to be “pushed in” and will not release as well as the right valve. The problem with the shower is insufficient hot water pressure. I wonder if this is the cause, the left stop valve is faulty (hot?).

A&D are stop valves; well, they just twist and turn. The direction of the hole is the direction of the “paddle” in the pipe. If the opening is horizontal, the valve opens and water can flow horizontally. If the opening is vertical, then the “cloak” in the valve is blocked by water.

Thank you very much! Your tip worked. “A” and “D” is the 90 degree turn water shutoff. I really appreciate it!!!

One of the Grohe stop valves (behind “B” and “C”) is stuck when closed. I tried removing it and soaking it in 50% CLR and hot water and then putting some lube on it, it got better but the piston still sticks when pushing everywhere. Any advice (besides replacing the stand).

They have washers/rods/seats, pistons, etc. to get them running like new again.

This setting is educational. I removed both of these Grohe units yesterday (for the first time) at 2 o’clock. One repair went well, while the other revealed a poor job by the previous installer/servicer. The interior is cracked, the washing machine is missing, and he left one of the water shut-off screws closed. I can’t remove one of the parts either, the plastic cap around the center rollers. It appears to be blocked by an invisible barrier on the cylinder. (His hand was easily removed during the first shower.)

Remove and remove the screws. Remove handle and set aside. Turn off the water at the appliance’s shutoff valve or your home’s main water valve. Turn on the faucet to make sure it is turned off. Remove the handle as shown in pictures 1 and 2. If the handle is stuck, try heating it with a hair dryer on the “hot” setting. If you still can’t remove it, use a special puller, a tool readily available at your local plumbing supplier or home center.

If it is fixed, use a special driver. Loosen the hex bolt and hex nut until the threads are visible. Slide the wrench over the cartridge handle, align the tool’s lugs with the cartridge thread, and twist to loosen. Almost every faucet manufacturer has different ways of attaching the cartridge to the faucet body. Install the clip or spring and remove it (Figure 3). Bullets are often difficult to remove. Some manufacturers include a removal cap with the new tape. Align the cap with the ear of the old cartridge and try to rotate the cartridge. Then remove it with tongs.

If you can’t recycle your old tapes, you need a cartridge extractor. Make sure what you buy works with your brand of faucet. Look for the brand or manufacturer of the faucet on the handle or trim. A knowledgeable person at a plumbing store can determine the make and model from a photo. See Figures 4 and 5 for instructions on using the bullet puller. Make sure the box is free before removing it (Figure 4). Take the old tape with you to a hardware store or home center to find an exact replacement.

We no longer support IE (Internet Explorer) as we strive to provide a web experience for web browsers that support new web standards and security practices. A few months ago I had a baby emergency. You see, our house is 30 years old, (I know it’s not that old) with everything original. Experienced homeowners may have seen this coming, but I don’t know when turning the faucet on and off in the bathroom is so difficult that it eventually becomes impossible. And just like that, the shower water didn’t turn off. Luckily I have a very strong girlfriend who pushed hard and was able to kill him. It remained unused for several months. Maybe 3-4. Until last weekend!!!

I’m sure you’re wondering why we decided to fix it now, I mean it’s been almost 4 months. What’s the rush? So I rolled my eyes at you and said ha ha so ironic. But the reason I can stop procrastinating is because Matt’s dad, Allen, is staying with us for the weekend. So last week I spent some time googling what to do. I thought we needed a new faucet, but luckily I found out there is a cartridge that can be easily replaced (in theory). I send Matt a quick message telling him where to find the YouTube video on how to do this.

Why Is My Electric Shower Not Working?

Unfortunately, Matt will be out of town for the weekend. But being the intrepid homeowner that I am (aside from going into the basement after dark myself), I thought I’d go all out on Saturday night.

So after work I took some equipment into the bathroom after turning off the water. After removing the u clip securing it, I went down to the control cartridge and tried to cut it out with a pair of pliers. It didn’t work. I fell when the pliers got out of control. But no one was hurt. I tried several times without success.

Return to YouTube. There was a video showing a special tool for removing stuck bullets. So I went to Home Depot. I got the removal tool and looked at the Moen replacement strip but there were only 2 of them. So I chose the one that looked.
