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 very old Moen one handle shower faucet. For approx a month it was very difficult to shut the faucet off-it would push back and took several tries with a few seconds of waiting in between tries to...


I believe that is due to sediment that worked thru your pipes and caused the cartridge inside the diverter to act funny... as long as it's back to normal from regular use then you should be ok.

Water pressure inside your home has nothing to do with rainfall -- it's a combination of regular pressure as dictated by yoiur water company and the condition of your household pipes... older homes often have sediment and water pressure issues due to rust and calcium buildup inside the system.

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!
