Hot water in every faucet but one

    I have a problem with my masterbath shower head. Hot water (nearly
    scalding) comes out of every other faucet/shower head in my house,
    however my masterbath shower head only produces lukewarm water. There
    are two other faucets in that bathroom, and they work correctly. When
    we bought the house about 7 months ago, this was not a problem. It
    has only been within the last month that we have noticed this. The
    house is 2.5 years old, so I am confused and I am afraid of overpaying
    a plumber to tell me that I am stupid and could have repaired the
    problem myself. Please help! Thanks,

    The pressure balancing shower valve I have has an adjustment setting
    on it--just had to take a little plate off of the knob.

    What he said- mine has a splined arrangement that you pull out and
    turn and then lock in place by pushing it back in to engage splines.
    Usually there is a washer covering that and all you should need it to
    remove the handle and make the adjustment.
