Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....

2 Answers

No hot water

I have a single handle Moen bath faucet that is only about 2 years old and does not get much use. Recently when we turned it one the cold water came out but when I continued to turn it around to the hot it trickled down to a small drip. Some insight to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    I found that I have the exact same problem tonight. The shower has a rotating handel and was purchased in February 2005. It is rarely used. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you frcs68. After calling the manufacturer, I found that it is advisable to turn on the water for a minute or two more frequently than I have in the past in order to prevent the cartridge from sticking in the same cold water position. Hopefully that advice will help others.

Turm off the water at the main first.
take the handle and the plate off the control.
use a plier to take out the cartridge.
replace with a new one or you can repair by change all of the "O" rings and rubber sets.
make sure the postion when you take off the cartridge. there is front and back to the cartridge. if you install it backwards, it will not work.

    Moen Monticello 4-inch centerset bath faucets can be repair easily with only a screwdriver and adjustable wrench. Turn the water off to the both sides of the faucets under the sink. Open both the hot and cold-water valves to alleviate any remaining pressure. Remove the handles by grasping the base of the handle and turning it counterclockwise.( This works for both lever and cross handles). Loosen the Moen faucet cartridge bonnet nut with an adjustable wrench by turning it counterclockwise to the left. Pull the stem from the faucet by hand and replace. Reinstall the bonnet nuts and handles. Turn the water back on and test the faucet for leaks. The Moen Monticello faucet comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Try calling Moen to get your replacement parts free.

    moen does not have a ball and washers....sounds like a Delta maybe. Moen uses cartridges. Either way sounds like a balancing spool problem....but you will need to make sure of the right name for the faucet to get the parts.
