If all. The otHEr faucets get. hot Then it may just be. The limit stop on the shower faucet It.self. That needs adjustment.

Do you have a diverter to switch between the head and handheld ?
M + M, I see what you did there. :)

You do realize that it sounds ridiculous for the hand held to get hot and the shower not to, especially since they both should be using the SAME water.

Some handheld showers attach to the tub spout, perhaps that is what they have.

Makes no difference, both are using the SAME water after the handles are turned on.

If their shower isn't working but the tub spout is working then the blockage could be in the vertical pipe running from the valve to the shower head, or the shower water passageway in the valve. They mention they *also* have a handheld shower and it works, they didn't say where it is mounted, if it's attached to the tub spout it isn't the same water as what goes up to the shower head.
