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.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

If this is a Moen posi temp valve you may need to adjust the temperature limit stop. It is located under the handle. Usualy a plastic peice with grooves in it so it fits in another peice in the valve. If I remember right you pull this peice out and turn it counter clockwise to get more hot water. Do this in small increments and reassemble and test. I hope this helps.

Moen - Single lever bath tub faucet - cold water only


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.

You will find a quicker answer and free parts for your bath room faucet at link above . I am sure it is the mixer valve assembly. If you are not a plumber I suggest a pro be called.
