Default shower -- hot water only

For some reason the mixer tap on the shower does not allow the cold water through. I checked and the cold water is coming up to the mixer. I have tried blowing out the pipe with compressed air and unscrewed the diverter to make sure water was coming in there. Is there some reason it would do this other than the mixer being broken? It looks like the mixer is not easy to replace. Is it a normal household type or is it special for RV's? I would appreciate any advice or input on how to take it off. Thanks

The mixer should come right out the front? It should be a straight forward fix. Coca Cola works well as well as Lime away etc.

That is probably a Moen fixture and the cartridges are available at any big box home improvement store (HD-Lowes)
There is a clip that has to be removed before the cartridge can come out, and sometimes the cartridge is a PITA to get out. If you can get it out, do that and take it with you to match it up.

Here is a video that should show you how. You may not have some of the pieces taken out at the beginning, but the cartridge removal will be the same.

Also, the clip in yours will probably look a little different as well. Probably a flatter brass clip, but pulls out the top just the same as the one in the video.

I hit 1000 with a post on Tim K's ticking wheel.

That makes this 1001 WooHoo

I don't think I'll be aiming to catch up with you Ryan...

Take the mixer out, it is behind the large bronze plug to the right of the water stem in the facet fixture. Remove the plug, remover the mixer stem and soak it in CLR or a day or two. You can also get a replacement stem from Moen. Vinagar will work as well, but I think CLR works quicker.

Hi john

Pretty much same problem here in my 89sp. I changed the cartridge but no change. I tried removing the quarter size plug just to the right of cartridge but it doesn't budge maybe I need a bigger hammer?
