SOURCE: I have a Moen Faucet

If the allen screw will not turn I would put an allen wrench into it and lightly tap it a few times with a hammer, the smaller the better. If the allen screw is stripped I would get a set of easy outs from the Home Depot or other store and use the smallest one to ease the screw out. An easy out works in reverse to the threads in order to get the screw to back out of the hole.

How to tighten set screw on Moen brantford shower lever


It sounds like the lever handle adapter may be broken or has become disengaged. . Remove the handle and inspect it. If the adapter is broken, it can be purchased at a plumbing supply house. Neither Home Depot nor Lowes will have it.

How do i get the shower handle off


I need more information. Is it an acrylic handle, or is it a lever handle. If it is a clear acrylic handle, take a knife, pry off the, and use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screw. If it is a lever handle, it takes a 7/64 Allen key to remove the set screw. The set screw is located underneath the lever handle on the round hub. Good luck

How do I get the handle off so I can tighten it up to eliminate wobble


look for a small hole in the bottom of the faucet handle,, it holds a allen type or a slotted screw for retaining the handle,, ( more than likely on a moen or Kohler its going to be a allen head,) ,, remove that and your handle should come off

I have a moen 7637 single handle kitchen faucet that leaks around the stem. How do I take the lever off.


1) Use a small sharp-pointed knife and pop out the little plastic Moen logo at the bottom of the front side of the handle (and don't lose it!)
2) Lift the lever up a bit (the water may turn on) until you can see a small screw with an allen wrench socket.
3) Unscrew the allen-head screw; the handle will lift straight up.

Look down into the faucet; there's a philllips head screw. The leaking may simply be caused by this screw being loose.

Should be coming out if head not stripped or threads inside at set screw aren't stripped. Can you tell at all with perhaps flashlight if set screw is turning at all? Look like it backing out?

I have a single lever Moen faucet where the handle is very loose and there is no button on the back side that would reveal an allen key, so I cannot tell how to tighten it back up. What should I do?


On almost all moen single handle faucets there is no allen set screw to hold handle on. They are secured by a screw located under Moen emblem in the center of the faucet on the top. You usually can get to the handle screw by prying cover off with small blade screwdriver or point of knife blade.. Tighten screw and hopefully this will fix your problem. Thank you.

Moen monticello shower control, remove handle


If your Posi-Temp has no water coming through the valve my first step would to replace the cartridge (Moen pn 1222). The valve as a simple one. Get the part first so you can ues the plastic tool that comes with it if you need to. Beneath the actual lever insert on the handle hub you will notice a small hole. this is to gain access to the allen head screw which holds the handle in place

Moen Posi-Temp Shower Handle removal


I hate to say this but maybe the inside of the allen screw has been rounded out by a previous worker. You can drill the screw out and replace the handle with a new one. NOTE: Moen replacement parts are not cheap!
