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

1 Answer

Not enough hot water

I have two moen shower fixtures, that I cant find numbers on, when turned all the way on I have hot water, but not until they are turned at least 90 percent of the way on, I notice that I have to set screws on the shower valve. Assuming they regulate the amount of water going to the shower head? this is a single handle shower valve, can I balance the amount of water by adjusting these Screws? I also see theres a snap ring holding them in?

The screws remove the handle. After the handle is removed their are little plastic like gears to limit th ehot watr. Relocate the gear ring for more hot water.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply


Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

No hot water


If you pull the trim off of the valve you will find the balancing caulk it is 1 inch diameter slotted screw. Unscew that and shake it or tap it on something until it rattles. then reinstall.

The moen began to leak over time now i cant turn the water for


Call moen and give them your model no. they will send you a new cartridge free of charge. if you can't wait local stores like lowes will have them. Turn off your main water shut off valve and take off handle, then with some pliers take off brass ring, the cartridge will pull out. First notice the notch it rests in and notice where the hot water adjustment disc is. Assemble the new one the same way, put some vasolene on orings and reassemble. hope this helps.

Just installed a Moen shower fixture, & the knob for the shower head doesn't send water to the shower head-- I don't get it!


I just installed one this weekend. Make sure that the cartridge has the embossed "HC" at the top (for Hot on left, Cold on right) when you slide it back in. Also, before putting the handle on turn the cartridge shaft so that the completely flat part is toward the top and the side with the small notch at the end is toward the bottom.

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot


Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
