Question about Moen & Knob Handle Kit

1 Answer

Broken shower knob

The knob in our stall shower turns the water on and off by pulling it in and out. The shower knob broke off and what we have found is that the screw that holds the knob in place broke in half and is now lodged inside the piece that is in the wall. How do we repair this problem? Do we have to call a professional (we're hoping not to have to spend the money to do so)? Any advice is appreciated.

You need a screw extractor.broken shower knob - 51nxsfhdrzl._sl500_aa280_.jpg
One end drills a hole into the remaining part of the screw. The other end fits inot the hole and turns counter clockwise, gripping the screw and removing it.

You can also buy a bolt extractor which will fit over the stub of the screw. This may work better if you have enough room to access it due to the small diamiter of those screws.

Otherwise, breaking off the surrounding pieces of plastic from the handle and removing the screw with pliers and replacing the handle is about the only way.

Push Pull Shower Valve also off in middle position


If you turn it to left or right (hot or cold) and get water out of the shower head,we'll elimate cloged shower head.If it just doesnt work in the middle ,probily a washer is stuck in your diverter,or to better understand>a part inside your shower knob assembly is clogging the water that goes up to your shower head. If you get water out of the shower head in the just cold possition or just hot position,then you will have to dissasemble the unit to repair. If you get no water in the cold or hot position could just be a clogged shower head.If you dont know how to disasemble a Shower diverter ,I wouldn't recommend taking it apart. Hope this helped!

I have a Moen shower knob that broke...


You are not the first. Usually you must break the plastic handle to remove it and then you can access the screw and have leverage to hold the brass stem with pliers while you try removing the screw. Caution, do not try to bend the handle to break it off or you will break the brass facet stem. Also, there are two styles of handles: one has a short innercone,the other has a longer inner cone. You need to know this before you purchase a replacement. Goodluck< Macgivor

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.

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

Kohler K-9511-BN MasterShower Shower Arm & Diverter Doesn't Work


As a helpful hint , on these models, When installed some plumbers or home owners use plumbers putty to seal the threads and in some cases tape.
Most of the time the putty or tape gets pushed through the system if too much was used.
Check by removing the shower head and testing the pressure and blowing anything else through, then checking the head itself for foreign objects.
Kohler has a cleaning and care page on thier web site if it needs cleaned.
