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.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
