Hi and welcome to the forum. Do you have pictures of the unit you installed?

It's likely something simple.

Sometimes sediment or a small pebble or a blob of solder finds its way into the wate line and lodges in a faucet.
States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.

Do you have cold throughout the house with the exception of this one place?

Most often what i've found, especially with new shower valves is that the pressure balance spool is stuck. Please post a picture of the valve for further instruction.
