This only happens in the Master Bath. All other faucets are normal.
When you turn on the hot water to normal, (moderate), flow in either one of the two sinks all is fine until the water starts getting warm. At that time a vibration starts. It will continue until you either, (1) turn off the hot water faucet, (2) increase the flow to a high rate, or (3) decrease the flow to almost a dribble. If you turn the faucets on at both sinks the vibration seems to be controlled by the total flow volume. Thus if you have nominal flow on both sinks, (a total of twice normal), the vibration stops. Other fixtures in the Master Bath, shower and tub do not have this problem.
What could be causing this problem?

Is the faucet that is causing the vibration single lever or two handled? The brand of the faucet would also be needed to make a proper diagnosis (LOL one of my other nics is the pipe doctor) Delta uses a ball with seats and springs. Moen utilizes a replacable cartridge. I'm not sure @ Grohe. If your faucets are designed with good ole' fashioned brass stems, try replacing the washers and O rings.
