must be cleaned. Shut off water supply. Remove Trim assembly (not shown).
Remove screws (20C), Backup Plate (20B) and Bonnet assembly (20A) Stem
(20D) and Balancing Cartridge (20E). Inspect inlets for sediment and flush with

21 TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS
Dripping from either the tub spout or shower head when water is turned
off.
Clean cartridge assembly. Check to ensure the two oval o-rings on the back of
the cartridge are in place. Reassemble cartridge, stem and bonnet assembly,
and handle (see step 20). Turn on the water and test. If the unit still leaks, replace
the balancing cartridge and the stem and bonnet assembly.
Make sure that both hot and cold water intlets are turned on.
Water flow is very low.
Check cartridge assembly, figure 20, for debris. Sediment where water enters
shower head can also cause this symptom.
Water starts out hot and becomes cooler as handle is rotated counter-
clockwise.
This is a potentially hazardous situation and should be corrected before using
the unit. Check the hot and cold inlet positions. If you have a back-to-back
installation, (where hot and cold inlets are reversed) refer to step 19 of this
installation guide.
