Shower water turns off when turned to hot


I have omen shower heads circa 2005-6 in my home. You turn the water on by rotating the handle counter-clockwise, going from cold to hot. When I turn the handle the water goes on until it hits the hot water part of the spectrum. At this point the water turns off again. What is the problem? How do I fix it? Thanks for the help.

It should read Moen shower heads - the beauty of auto spell check.

Hmmm, maybe replacing the cartridge would fix this. I don't think they're too expensive. My guess is the hot port is clogged. How old are the pipes in your house? What kind are they?

Also, have your water pipes had any repairs done on them recently?

The house was built in 2005, so hopefully it is the cartridge. Thanks for the help.
