    replaced Moen shower cartridge, seemed to work for two days, then faucet started slow drip again.

    I'm going to pull it back out and gob a bunch of silicone around it to see if that helps, if not looks like the entire copper pipe may need to be replaced.... ;-(

Make sure that you did not pinch an O ring seal when you were installing the cartridge. If so replace O ring. when installing new cartridge try putting a little Vaseline on all the O rings. It will seal better. It is rare but you could have purchased a defective cartridge. Never buy a cartridge if the package was opened because maybe someone just needed the O ring that is making your faucet leak :-)

Moen single lever shower handle gives only hot water


A bit more information is needed; is this a Moentrol or a Posi-temp valve? You will need to shut water down to the shower. If it is a Moentrol, it could be an issue with either the cartridge or the pressure balancing spool. If you are at least getting water, I am going to assume that it is a Moentrol.
You will need to turn water off to the valve. Pull the cartridge and examine as to whether or not debris is blocking the supply holes of the cartridge. If your valve has built in shut off screws, you can slowly turn water on to clear any debris that may be inside the inlet port. I typically use a piece of PVC to go over the valve body so that water does not leak between the wall and the shower. Again, just turn water on enough to start it flowing.
If you do not notice anything amiss with the cartridge, it could also be the pressure balancing spool. If that is on your valve, it will be a flat head screw about the size of a nickel. Water will need to be off for the removal of the spool as well. Again, you will be looking for debris that is blocking water flow.
If this is an older Moen faucet, you may just want to replace the cartridge while you have it removed. If it is a push/pull, it is a Moentrol. If you have to turn the handle for water to come out, it is a Posi-temp. In my area, the cartridges run from $20-$40. However, Moen does offer lifetime on their cartridges. Lately, I have had a few more hoops to jump through to get the replacement cartridges from Moen, but they are still very pleasant to deal with.

Leaks again


This is almost always caused by debris in the plumbing from the pipes or the water heater.

Sometimes it is caused by a defective OEM cartridge. Always buy genuine Moen parts.

Remove and inspect the cartridge. While it is out, briefly turn the water to the valve back on to insure the valve is free of particles and then reinstall. If the drip persists you will need to replace the cartridge again. Always flush the valve before installing new parts.

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

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.

Try replacing the cartridge first.That's your best bit . Next would be the whole valve. Hopefully, it's just the cartridge.

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.

Replaced moen 2225 cartridge leaks when valve is turned on


is this the single handle model? if so simply remove handle, plate, then pull the clip out with a pair of needle nose (after turning main water off).
the valve assembly will pull staright out with moderate force. sounds like one of the small o rings got pinched so it may take a good pull. 
make sure to look inside valve housing for foriegn debre. clean it out good. i like to turn the water on for a few seconds before i put the new valve in to blow out any stuff that might cause problems.

Replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower


make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.
