Here is a possible solution for you. First go out and buy a Moen cartridge puller tool like this:

Stem Valve is frozen on my 3175 Legend. - 5b0f4de.jpg

Next follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the water to the valve.
  2. Install puller and rotate cartridge several times.
  3. Gently pull on cartridge while slowly turning.
This should work. If the center of the valve pulls out continue below with these suggestions:

  1. Remove center piece from tool.
  2. Place the brass feral to the end of the tool as shown.
  3. Insert this part of the tool into the valve all the way as far as it can go.
  4. Turn the tool until you hear a click or tool feels like it turns the valve.
  5. Pull on the tool gently while turning.
This should get the job done.

Also here is some information for you about your valve:

I have replaced moen 1225B cartridge and only get cold water no hot water


when installing a new cartridge you need to put stem grease on the o-rings or you are taking a great risk of cutting the o-rings upon installation. doing this will allow the cold water to mix with the hot causing this problem it is quite common for this to happen without the grease

How do you remove the cartridge?


Remove the handle by removing set screw on the bottom of the handle. The screw is located under plastic button with the red and blue marking on it. Pull handle off and remove the retaining clip that is in front of the cartridge. Do this by holding the tab on the top with needle nose pliers and pulling up. Be careful to not break it as the new cartridge does not come with one. Use a pair of pliers to grasp the handle stem and pull out to remove cartridge. If you need to you can buy a moen removal tool and follow instructions to use.They have some very good easy to follow videos on u-tube that will show you step by step direction on what you need to do and helpful tips to make it easier. They explain themselves much better then I can. Try my moen.com. Thank you.

If it is hard to pull out or push in the valve then you will need to replace it. On moen valves you can not rebuild the cartridge you can only replace them. A new cartridge will cost you around 15 to 20 dollars.

Also I would tack the cartridge with you when you gao and buy it because they make 2 different ones.

Moen single tub shower handle insatll


The valve has a faceplate that attaches with two screws and depicts the hot and cold mixing scheme on it. in the center of this is where the valve stem is located. It has a chrome escutcheon that slides into the faceplate and over the stem.There is a small -U- schaped clip that slides into the top of the valve body where the valve stem is seated that retains the valve stem. With all this in place all you have left is the acylic handle that has a unique shape to it on the internal portion that corresponds to the shape and position of the valve stm. Align the handle and stem and push the handle on. A small screw goes into the center of the handle to attach it to the valve stem. LASTLY you should have the acrylic button that covers the screw holding the handle on. All you do is align it appropriately and push the button onto the handle. The chrome handle version is essentially the same but is retained by a small allen screw on the underside of the base of the handle. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
