think anti-scald tripped on my shower
Hi there, I bought an American Standard tub-shower valve combo, here is a link to the closest thing I can see from AS's site:

All hot water spigots in the house work exc. the tenant tells me this just stopped working - also that he heard a thumping noise. Now, cold water flows but not hot.

I suspect the "anti-scald" has kicked in as it's unlikely that anything could have lodged in there.

what I'm wondering is, how do I reset this? I would appreciate your help/input on this. I have limited access to the valve but can drill up through the void below.

You need to replace the cartridge inside the valve, remove the trim to acess the valve.
