SOURCE: Moen Bath Tub Faucet

Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

Try tightening the allen set screw behind the spout "you need a special (allen keys) to do this, and one should have came with your faucet". You can also buy or borrow an set of them.

I have a Moen Ascent kitchen faucet. The chrome handle that is attached somehow to the control valve underneath has come loose. How is the handle attached to the valve and what is the remedy?


Moen kitchen faucet handles in this series are held onto the cartridge stem with a set screw. First turn off the water supply to the faucet. You need to move the handle until you can see the small plug button that covers the set screw. This is ~3/4" from the edge of the handle. Remove the plug with a small screwdriver or other levering tool and adjust the handle if needed to get it on the cartridge stem. Then find the appropriate Allen wrench to tighten the screw. (It may be a 3/32" but this isn't always true.) To test if you have it tight, turn on the water and see if the water is easy to turn on and off. Turn off the water and replace the plug button. Then turn the water one last time.

To see a parts diagram for a couple of models of Ascent faucets, see https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Chrome_onehandle_high_arc_pulldown_kitchen_faucet/S71708 or https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Classic_stainless_onehandle_high_arc_pullout_kitchen_faucet/S71709CSL .

I hope this helps.

(Do not over-tighten the set screw. This could damage the cartridge or handle.)

Moen Kleo faucet. Handle loose, removed set screw to tighten but now no water pressure. (it worked fine before inspector came for house sale)


Something always seems to happen when an inspection is due. The handle tightening operation may have affected the cartridge inside. Back off the screw and water may return. If not, the cartridge may have to be replaced.

How do I tighten the hot water handle on a moen 4720 bathroom faucet?


many two handle faucets have either a cover button on top or on the side, top button types generally can be tightened with a screw driver while the side button style typically requires an allen wrench (hex key)

The Faucet handle and it's base are loose and need tightening.


Try removing that Allen screw completely. There may be a second screw behind it, deeper in, that you can tighten. I see that from time to time - the inner screw does all the tightening, the outer screw just locks the inner one in place.

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.

There is a cap on the top of the handle which can be removed by popping it out with a knife or a small flat tip screw driver. Inside you will see a screw which holds the handle to the faucet. Tighten this and replace handle cap.

I have a loose handle on my Moen two hanlde lavatory faucet and i can't find any set screw to tighten it . How to tighten the handle to the faucet stem?


Take handle off and check out the inside to make sure it not striped out and on the top of the handle it may have a plastic cap to pop of to access the screw holding in in place you amy have to use a knive to get it off .

If you can't see a set screw it may have a screw in handle on top.

Handle has come loose, just spins.


Most likely the screw in the center of the handle has become loose and just needs to be tightened. Pop off the cover with a screwdriver. and tighten the screw.

The handle is loose. It's a single lever control. The mechanism the level connects to still works fine. No leaks, but the handle is now quite wobbly, and I don't know how to tighten it. Do I pry out that...


Remove the plastic red and blue insert or what ever color yours is under the handle in the front. Tighten the set screw with an allen wrench. Be careful not to over tighten or the screw will break off.
