You have a common problem with Moen cartridges. 1st if the valve is plastic these instructions may not help you, they are for brass valves. If your not afraid to spend a little money you can go to the local hardware store and ask for a Moen cartridge puller. They usually cost between $15-$100 for the good one. Get the one that looks like a tee. (see picture)

  1. First turn off the water to the valve.
  2. Screw the tool to the valve where the handle would connect to.
  3. Align the slots on the tool to the slots on the valve.
  4. Turn the valve 360 degrees several times.
  5. Pull the valve gently and firmly towards slowly increasing the pressure.
  • At this point the valve will come out and your done.

  • If just the center portion will comes out heres what you do.
  1. Remove the center portion of the valve from your tool.
  2. You will notice at the end of the tool handle is a brass ring.
  3. Slide ring down to button and depress button until it is held in place with ring.
  4. Slide this part of the tool with ring into the valve. (ring will not go in valve)
  5. Insert this into the valve all the way you can until you hear a click.
  6. Turn and gently pull until valve comes out.
  • Note: if both of these fail you need to change the valve.

I had the same problem. I purchased a Moen economy cartridge puller and it worked fine after I rigged a spacer sleeve over it. Brute strength just doesn't work once the cartridge is stuck.

How to fix delta shower single knob faucet


Take handle off (either set-screw from side or bottom of handle, or phillips screw under cap on end of handle), pull off sleeve that's behind handle, unscrew nut that holds cartridge (strap wrench works great) and pull cartridge out.

Shower/tub faucet does not provide cold water, only to warm and hot.


The faucet has a cartridge that is dirty or bad. Turn off water to the house and remove the cartridge. Take it to Lowes or Home Depot and get another replacement. follow the instructions in the package to the tee.

The old cartridge easily pulls out after you pull out on a clip on the top of the internal assembly. Just take the handle off, slip out the chrome sleeve and remove the clip. The cartridge will pull out with minimal force.

Then head to the store!

Took apart Moen tub faucet to replace cartridge and could not remove old cartridge- how do you remove.It is a single handle faucet and I tried to pull straight out but something catches and prevents it...


hi, there is a lock nut that holds the cartridge in this will need to be unscrewed, if you have already done that it should only be a matter of pulling it straight out, sometimes the cartridge gets seized in the body of the tap use mutli grips or pliers to pull it out by the shaft that the handle goes on

I have a moen 1 knob push-pull faucet for my tub/shower. When I push it in sometimes water continues to drip. It is probably 30 years old. Are their replacement parts for it?


The old MOEN single handle faucets like youve described usualy took a 1200 or 1225 cartridge. Both are available at most of your big home improvement stores. The answer to your question is yes MOEN parts are still avail. Hope this helps. If this advise is helpful, please give me a vote.

Moen Single Handle Shower faucet can't get cylinder out


New moen cartridges for tub/showers come with a handy white plastic tool to aid in old cartridge removal. One end is squared off for a wrench, the other is slotted to place over the old cartridge in the wall after the clip has been removed. Place onto cartridge and use a wrench to turn several times back and forth. Remove , grab the stem with pliers and give a tug. You want either service part #1225B (pull/push to turn on) or #1222 (just turn knob counterclockwise to turn on. Get the replacement before you proceed.

On my Moen shower facet


There is a small "U" type clip that comes down in front area to hold it in, I assume that has been removed. The new cartridge should have come with a small tool (usually plastic) that you put over the cartridge, push it in, and turn the body of the cartridge, and it should start to ride up on higher brass sleeve and start to pull itself out. If you look at vertical part of cartridge, it is sitting back in on low spot of the sleeve. That tool, or a pair of strong needle nose pliers,needs to be against the sides of the vertical part of the cartridge, in such a way that when you rotate the cartridge, it rides up on higher part of sleeve, and pulls itself outward.

A stem is a cartridge in a real old valve. You have pulled retainer clip, you can try to pull it out with pliers, but you might need a moen cartrigde puller.
