ever since the pressure balancing regulations came out for shower valves, they have went from simple to very complicated devices. sounds as if some foreign material caused the valve to stop working. that valve is quit difficult to reassemble correctly because there is only one way it works and can be assemmbled many ways that do not work concerning alignment of the ports. if you dissassemble it and check that all the moving parts are functioning in the balancing cartridge you can then look closely at the alignment of the ports on the cartridge that the handle is connected to. understanding how the port align as the handle is turned should assist you in assembling it correctly......hope this helps.

You have to remove the "large" nut but you need to find a way to hold the faucet. Also, you will see a retaining washer that fits on the inside of that "large" nut. If you loosen this it will release some of the tention on it and hopefull make it easier to remove. Also, try using some lime remover on the unit will might alow the retaining nut to loosen. Good luck and if you can't get it off, contact Kohler, they have an 800 number and they can give you the info you will need depending on your model.

Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

My husband is a plumber. He says u need to pull it off with pliers. U need to just pull it off. It may take a couple tries, but it should come out.
