Take the cartridge back out and turn it 180 degrees. Put the front toward the rear. It sounds like you got it in backwards. It's a very common mistake, even made by master plumbers.

SOURCE: single handle tub faucet will not divert to shower

the diverter on the tub spout is bad you need to replace the tub spout or the pull up diverter if its a separate piece if you have the owners manual with a parts diagram you can order it on line from the manufacturer or a plumbing supply store. you will need to unscrew the tub spoup from the wall to do this use a broom handle or something similar inserted inside the spout and turn it to the left to remove it from the wall

SOURCE: We lost water flow to

I'm thinking that the cartridge may not be turning with the handle. After attempting to turn the faucet on a few times, see if the teeth on it are worn.

Replaced cartridge now only have hot water


You likely took out the anti-scald ring out when you took it apart and then put it in in a different spot preventing the handle from turning far enough. You may also have the cartridge or handle upsidedown.

Water will not flow through on american standard with pressure balance. Some hot water came out with low pressure then stopped and now nothing will flow.


I just spent a week wrestling with a similar problem, and I'm posting in an attempt to save someone else an ulcer. Using a Colony single-handle valve, the temperature got so we couldn't control it. Either all hot or all cold. I called A.S. and they sent a new pressure balancing cartridge and new valve cartridge. Replaced both and then there was no water at all coming out of the shower head. Tried every possible combination of old and new parts, flushed pipes, etc. Finally took the shower head off and found it completely clogged with debris. It was a mix of sediment and the white grease that was in the new cartridges, which must have been displaced when I started messing with it. And it clogged it all at once (no flow problems before all of this). Works fine now!

My Moens One handle tub shower shot out at me and i could not stop the water for nothing what would make it shot out


If it is an older valve there is a small copper retaining clip that holds the cartridge in place. If this clip broke it could blow cartridge out or come out when you pulled it to turn it on.
If that is the trouble you can see the slot in the top of the valve body where the retaining clip goes.You will need to get a new clip and put the cartridge back in and insert clip to hold it. If you find that you have the hot and cold sides reversed simply turn the stem of the cartridge 180 degrees and you should be in business. Thank you

No hot water in shower but have hot water in sink


Is your shower valve a single handle. If so I would reccomend you change cartridge. To do this shut off water to valve or house. Remove center cover on valve handle,most of these are just friction fit so gently pry off with knife point or small screwdriver. Remove handle by pulling straight out,then remove chrome cover that fits around outside of valve. Ther is a small copper retaing clip that holds valve in place. It should have a small hole in tab that is on top of valve. Grasp this with pliers and pull up to remove. Then remove cartridge by pulling on cartridge stem. If it's doesn't come out you can get a moen cartridge puller at hardware store. Remove old cartridge,install new one and reinstall retaing clip. Reinstall chrome cover and handle.Turn water back on and try shower valve to see that cold is on the right side. If it's not remove handle and turn center stem 180 degrees.This will change cold side to right. Put handle back on with cover and you sould be done. Hope this helps. Thanks

Followed replacement procedure for moen posi temp shower valve (turn 45 degrees ctr clockwise after removing retainer and pull) valve will not come out.no matter how hard i pull..what next (solution ???)


Often time a Moen cartridge becomes very fond of it home and doesn't want to leave. I once stood on top of a kitchen sink just to get my back into it to remove a cartridge. That is a rare example.

Once the retainer clip is removed there is nothing to keep the cartridge in place except water minerals, lubricant, and suction caused by the lubricant. Frequently it will take a rocking back and forth of the cartridge to fully free it from it's confines before a good tug. If you don't use the white plastic tool that comes with the new cartridge, you could pull the center stem out only and that's all bad. Before installing the new one see if you can have someone turn on the house water for an instant while you hold a cup or glass over the hole for the cartridge. This will flush out of the valve body any particulate that might affect your new cartridge. The cup will help keep you and your bathroom floor dry.

After inserting the replacement as far as you can, place the tool back onto it and tap on it to make sure it is in all the way. Then use the squared end to put a wrunch on to you can turn the cartridge internally and align it for the retainer clip.

Replaced moen 2225 cartridge leaks when valve is turned on


Yes you remove the clip by pulling up  on it.  make sure water is off.  then you can replace the cartridge by puling it out.  make sure that you put new cartridge back in the same way you took it out there will be a H and a C on the cartridge.
