My shower only stays hot for a minute and then goes cold even though the hot water works everywhere else. I have a hot and cold tap and a third one to direct to shower or tub.


I would take a look at the stem replacement task. Maybe something is clogging the hot water flow, perhaps a damaged washer or debris

Had the Moen L82691 installed about 2 weeks ago. It worked fine, however now it only produces hot water. Even on the cold setting the water gets hot.


I think Moen is one of the easiest to work on and most trouble free there is. The only problems I have ever encouneterd with them is the mixing valve.This is the parts breakdown:

and a video

Of course you handle would have the set screw that holds it on. I would go to who ever you got the valve from and see if they will give you a new valve or, the video states Moen may provide a new one free. It's also possible, being a new install, that you may have had junk in your water lines that have now plugged the cold side of the valve. If you have some help, you may want to have someone taht can turn water off and on(slowly), cold first, and see waht kind of flow you have with valve out. Check for trash in the line and the valve first.

Leaking shower head


Not unless you had a backward plumber , If the diverter at the faucet is open for tub, then no water will go up the shower, The shower may hold enough water up there to make it look like a drip, Even if the valve was leaking all the time, it would not go up, it would come out the faucet. It only works with pressure. Unless the valve was plumbed wrong,,, Hope this helps.

Cold water works, hot does not


your problem can be fixed by running a loop in the plumbing. If you hired a professional in the first place it would already be done. basically the water pressure isn't enough, i bet your faucet is on the second or third floor, or even just THAT far from the water heater.

We installed two new single handle shower faucets with both hot and cold supply lines pressurized to each of the faucets. The problem is that no hot water will come out of either faucets. Their seems to be...


Sounds like the valve is defective. The supply to the stems was not bored out at the factory giving you a valve that is essentially pretty on the outside and solid on the inside. To test it, uninstall the valve. Remove the stems. Then try running a pipe cleaner though the valve from the supply side and see if it stops before the stem.

Cannot get the cartridge out of the moen sh lav faucet..no cartridge tool, what can I use to get the cartridge out???


There is a small U clip that holds the cartridge in. It just slides up or down. Some Moen cartridges are very difficult to remove, they can be corroded inside "almost fused" it is best that you get a moen cartridge puller. Lowe's has them. If you decide to tackle this job make sure the water is off, and when you pull the cartrige remember the direction it came out. If you put it in backwards your cold will be hot, and your hot will be cold!
