Take the knob off and rotate 180 degrees and put back on. Just take the knob off, turn 180 and screw back on. New stems many times are in the half way position from the factory. You are not the first this has happened to. My answer assumes you just changed out the cartridge.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil

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.

Kohler rite temp with diverter. When the tub is turned on water leaks out the shower head. Changed the diverter didn't fix problem.


You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.

there is an ajustment on most tub and shower valves, remove handle and there is a plastic peice that stops the handle from turning to the hot side to much. try to adjust. you shouldnt have to shut water off to house, but to be safe you might want to.

Replace inside stem on hot water Eljer shower faucet


Sounds like you might need a gear puller -- hardware stores would have them -- or auto parts.
Spray with contact cleaner wd-40 first, then install puller, depress ring and crank away at the puller.

Price Pfister Shower--No water to shower


Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

Good luck

Moen shower faucet problem


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.

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,
