Moen shower faucet problem

I installed a new Moen faucet (single turn for hot and cold) it comes with two white plastic pieces that fit on the valve but the handle doesn't seem to line up and the stainless steel screw isn't long enough. I tried every way possible but it still wont go on. Help

I need to ask a few questions to solve your problem.

What Model Shower body is it?
How big is the white plastic piece?

If it is about 6 inches around (just smaller than the face plate) and you are installing this shower body in a preexisting tub/shower, this piece can be discarded. It is a guide that is used so the tile contractor knows how much room is needed to service the valve once it is installed.

If this is not the case, just post with a few details and I'll modify my response.

I need replacement part for bath sink cartridge 4570

The Moen 1225 or 1200 cartridges are the same except the 1200 is brass in stead of plastic. They will fit most Moen single handle faucets. If it is a two-handle faucet, the 1224 cartridge will fit most two-handle models unless it is a fancy widespread faucet more than about 15 years old. I don't know the model numbers for those cartridges. All of these cartridges require a removal tool if you can't get them out with a pair of pliers.

Faucet handle on Monticello model came off---how do I get it to tighten back on the hub. Received new adaptor kit, but how do I attach handle to the base?

If it's a shower valve there is a small hole on the underside of the handle. There should be an allen key that came with the kit. Use the key to tighten the screw.If there is no key then I think the size is either 1/16" or 1/8". The handle should point down when installed and in the closed position.You can turn the handle for easier access but if it's a Moen Posi-temp this will turn the water on. Stand to the side so you don't get wet. If it's Moen Moentrol you must pull it to turn the water on so if you turn the handle without pulling it you won't get wet. If the allen screw is missing then there should be one in the kit you have.

How to disassemble the delta single handle bathroom faucet

Before taking it apart, you need to turn off the cold and hot water valves under the sink. Once you have done that, open the faucet and let the remaining water run out into the sink. Since I am not sure what the age of your faucet is. I will be using instructions for a common Delta faucet.

1. There is a hole towards the bottom of the handle in the front. It may have a plastic button there. If so, pry the button off with a very small flat head screwdriver. Try not to damage it.

2. If your going to replace the seals, it is best to by the rebuild kit that comes with a special tool. It includes the allen wrench and spanner wrench in one. And all necessary parts to rebuild it.

3. Once you get the handle off, you will see a dome shaped part with two notches in it. It may have ridges on the side of it. That is the special fitting that holds all the parts down.

4. Remove the dome shaped part with the tool provided with the parts kit.

5. Replace all parts that match yours.

6. Install everything in reverse order and you should be good to go.

Stopping a shower faucet from dripping

There are two things that can cause the shower valve to leak. One is calicum build up on the vlve parts and the other is the O-rings are worn out. Turn water off that feeds the shower and remove the handle on the shower valve then remove the cover that covers the valve body, next find a wrench that will fit the outside of the valve core and remove the core with stem of the valve. Go to any hardwate store and buy a new gasket kit or o ring kit. This is avaliblity at any hardware store.

Kitchen taps drip and leak.I do not want to replace with new but would like to sort these problems.

dependent on the type of faucet, you need to replace (a) the washers, (b.) the spring and seals or (c.) the gasket. They all serve the same purpose. 1. turn off the water supply to the faucet. 2. double handle? (a)remove the center cap (b) then remove the screw holding the handle down (c)next unscrew the valve stem retaining nut (normally it is the one right above the faucet body). (d) pull the valve stem out, if there is a small rubber piece held down by screw remove the screw, replace the washer. if there is a rubber gasket wrapped around the stem, remove and replace it, if nothing is on the stem look into the faucet body you should see 1 or 2 small rubber pieces these are the seals the springs are right below the seals. Remove and replace springs and seals. 3. single handle? remove the handle retaining screw, normally covered by hot/cold indicator symbol, unscrew valve stem retaining nut, pull the valve stem and replace either the gasket or springs and seals.

I need the plastic replacement pump for the moen soap pump that goes with my kitchen sink. The pump is a 3910. How do I order the part and what is the $$?

Amazon can provide moen soap parts for lowest prices (about 10$). click on this link Watkins Hand Soap Made Naturally Since 1868 and pick one (which one fits, and which one is cheapest)
I hope I have helped you

Hi rbyerly,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is:
remodeled bathroom,installed new moen valve and hardware. Now water is coming from both the shower head and the faucet when the diverter is in the down postion. Question; Is this a single handle or three handle diverter? Assuming it's a three handle, it should just be a mater of adjusting the center handle. If single, the diverter is in the spout not the valve. I don't know how to direct you further without specifics. Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
