    Default Kohler k-401 Mixing valve, Cartridge Repair or Replace?

    I have a shower with a K-401 Mixing valve. Shower used to be hot enough, but now it runs luke warm though the temperature control is max'd out (i have the mixing valve turned all the way hot without the limit stop installed). Hot inlet water temperature is about 130.

    It doesn't look like there is any way to adjust the mixing ratio.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
