My MOEN shower faucet will not shut off the shower.

The handle seems to be stuck in the open position. I tried pushing as hard as I dare and it will not push in. Any ideas?

You should take the handle off. To do this, Turn Off the water supply to the Shower. Remove the handle with a screw driver or alan wrench. Now you can see the assembly. There should be a nut or some kind of threaded ring holding in the GUTS of the Faucet. Gently pull out the unit (Remember or write down how it goes together). Now visually inspect it and see if you can find an obstruction or broken piece that is causing it to stay open. If there are broken parts you can get them at a Plumbing Supply Store. If every thing seems fine and it seems to work when you have it out, then put it carefully back together, turn on the water and try it again. This has worked for me a few times in the past, Just taking it out, cleaning it , and putting it back together......Good Luck......I hope this helps you with this situation....Joe

I have a moen 1 knob push-pull faucet for my tub/shower. When I push it in sometimes water continues to drip. It is probably 30 years old. Are their replacement parts for it?


The old MOEN single handle faucets like youve described usualy took a 1200 or 1225 cartridge. Both are available at most of your big home improvement stores. The answer to your question is yes MOEN parts are still avail. Hope this helps. If this advise is helpful, please give me a vote.
