Had a plumber come by yesterday and he installed a new stem. Now the hot/cold is reversed. Really want the hot back on the left side. I read here that all you do is remove the handle and turn the stem 180 degrees? How do you turn the stem? Does it matter if I turn it clockwise or counterclockwise?
Depending on the valve, you either turn the stem or the entire cartridge. If you pull the handle to turn it on, then you rotate the stem. If you turn the handle to start the flow, then you have to extract the cartridge and turn the entire thing 180 degrees.

Just turning the stem did it, thanks.
Thank you so very much. Husband & I followed your advice and in a few seconds it was fixed. Didn't want to bother the plumber for such a small matter! This is my first time on this site and my compliments.
