Why does shower faucet still run when in the OFF position??


Replaced a pressure balancing regulator in my Kohler faucet today. with new O rings intact & now when I turn the whole house water back on, the shower faucet runs even though it is in the OFF position. Any hints??

Cartridge not properly seated or installed wrong, Orings not seated, nick in plastic or brass, small piece of debris in valve assy, etc. Could be a lot of things.
