Default Please tell- How to remove this Shower Cartridge?

This is an American Standard (All-in-One Temp) Shower Control. Please tell me how to find the product number, and take out the cartridge.

All this tenant is getting is cold water from the shower, the temp control no longer works. Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

Looki for numbers on the unit. Go to the American Standard website and either look for the valve, or click on the Help section.
If you have never made a mistake, you probably haven't done much.

turn off water, (to bldg ) or use the integral stops on the valve itself- with a flat screw driver turn clock wise to close each hot and cold side, turn valve on, and use an adjustable wrench on the valve stem, on the wrench flats, on the heavy brass part of stem-apply torque CCW being careful to back up the applied force if necessary. remove slowly so no little parts (if any) spring out. and notice how the part(s) are orientated for reassembly later with new part(s) if needed. re-assemble in reverse order. In doing a repair it always best to have the new part(s) ready to be installed on hand. unless you need the part to take with you to indentify and find parts. but you sound like you have identified the make already that's good if your correct.
