Have you checked manufacturer's settings instructions - you may just need to adjust the high-limit temperature setting. If not, cartridges I have seen run from about $15-60 - the changeout and initial temperature setting will probably be minimum service charge assuming it can be changed by just removing a decorative faceplate - from $75-175 labor normally except can be more in extremem high cost big city areas - normally around $125 these days.

+1 to LCD's response.

Most are tuneable and replacement, if required, is usually doable by the homeowner.

Two things I noticed in using this question as a reference for another recent question:

On the labor, depending on how you read it the $125 commonly might sound like I meant in big cities. I meant around $125 commonly across the country, as low as $75 oir so in some very low cost (usually deep south) areas, to $175 in higher priced area, then more (up to $300-600 callout charge - normal and night/weekend - very rarely) in a very few very high cost urban or elite suburbia areas.

On the cartridge charges - many come in the sub-$60 range I mentioned, but a few high-end brand names I have now seen in the $100-250 range just for the cartridge - not the entire tempering valve which can run up to pushing $1000 ballpark in some cases, especially with european ones.
