Not sure what I did to my faucet

The handle came off of my kitchen faucet yesterday. The handle connector inside broke. I took it to the plumbing supply store and got a replacement for it.

I just got it put back together. Everything was normal before it broke - moving the handle to the left turned on the hot water and to the right was the cold.

Now, turning the handle all the way to the left or right lets out luke-warm water and the cold is in the center only. There is no hot, unless I turn the cold water off with the shut-off valve under the sink.

What did I do wrong?

In case your brood is visiting and you need that fixed ASAP I'm going to take a stab that the blue portion needs to rotate left or right to control the mixing valve underneath. It may have been reinstalled a few degrees right or left of center changing your flow mixture to the cold side. You mentioned you have shutoff`s under the sink so also be sure the hot is not seized part way closed before you attempt the adjustment.:thumbsup:
