    due to lack of use, calcium deposits build up on the stem..also the flat rubber partial sleeves on the side of the stem can move andblock the flow of water......pull out the valve stem with a moen extractor.....check the sleeves...clean the deposits...apply a very light coat of plumbing grease...re-insert......put everything back correctly...works like a charm................

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply


Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

Turning on hot or cold water I get a loud screeching noise and very low pressure. If I keep turning the handle, I can get rid of the noise, but still low pressure.


It sound like you have sediment blocking your valve, faucet airiator or shower head (depending on what you're using). FYI: if it turns out to be defective all Moen faucets and showers have a life time warantee.

When I turn my MOEN Shower faucet to the HOT position hardley any water comes out.and it is just luke warm.


check your cartridge,and i believe your mod # 3175 has a balancing spool #1423, i think if i remember it is to the right of the cartridge,a large screw driver will get it out.

Just installed a Moen shower fixture, & the knob for the shower head doesn't send water to the shower head-- I don't get it!


I just installed one this weekend. Make sure that the cartridge has the embossed "HC" at the top (for Hot on left, Cold on right) when you slide it back in. Also, before putting the handle on turn the cartridge shaft so that the completely flat part is toward the top and the side with the small notch at the end is toward the bottom.

Do you have good flow if you remove the shower head, y/n if not how old is house,galvinized plumbing?? or copper plumbing. Sounds like you have a clogged valve and if so this link will be good.

Not alot of hot water?


1st Check the temperature restricting coller behind the cover under the handle. It is used to restrict the flow of hot water to stop you from being scaulded.
2nd Those set screws will control the flow. Check to ensure both sides are open the same amount of turns. If the water pressure is good turn in the cold side.

Not enough hot water


The screws remove the handle. After the handle is removed their are little plastic like gears to limit th ehot watr. Relocate the gear ring for more hot water.
