Question: How can I tell if the Kohler K-400-K rough-in valve demands a 78913 thermostatic cartridge replacement? Answer: A replacement Kohler 78913 thermostatic cartridge is called for when the shower valve: – cannot adjust shower water temperature according to your preference; – the temperature adjustment handle becomes stiff to turn; – water is coming out from the temperature adjustment handle. Question: Is there any way I can know if the present Kohler 78913 thermostatic cartridge is the one that is causing the problem? Answer: You may need to have a look at three things depending on the problem. – Leaks can be caused by too much water pressure. An excess of pressure is detrimental to the Kohler thermostatic cartridge. – Temperature regulation and weak water flow rate can be the consequence of a lack of hot or cold water entering the valve. – Weak water flow rate can be due to mineral clogs in the steel filters of the Kohler 78913. Any blockage will prevent water from entering the cartridge. At the same time, it might be the reason for problems related to temperature regulation. No problems with water pressure or water feed entering the Kohler K-400-K or K-401-K could be evidence that the thermostatic cartridge 78913 might be the root cause of the problem and would need a replacement. Question: Can you give me tips for replacing the Kohler 78913? Answer: Sure, we can give you some tips on repairing the Kohler K-400-K or K-401-K with the 78913 thermostatic cartridge. – Before attempting to remove the faulty cartridge, isolate the hot and cold water supply. The isolation screws can be found on the sides of the valve. Water can also be shut off from the mains. – To unscrew the Kohler 78913 from the valve: Use a six-sided socket on the nut of the cartridge and a wrench on the larger spline of the cartridge. Turn both tools anti-clockwise simultaneously to release the cartridge. – Keep in mind the order of the parts you remove in order to access the thermostatic cartridge. These parts must be reassembled in reverse sequence. – If there is a stop ring, remember the orientation of its position before sliding it out of the valve. This part functions as a temperature limiter and has to be returned in the same position.
