Single lever moen shower valve -can't remove handle

I'm trying to remove the handle of my single lever moen shower valve. I removed the screw, but the handle will not come off. It seems to be still somehow fastened- not even budging ? Any suggestions??

    Thanks, I'm not sure of the model number, but the lever pulls outward and turns to 3 O'clock position for cold and 9 o'clock position for hot. It feels like I will snap it off, if I pull on it too hard.

Moen single shower handle won't come off even after set screw is removed


Sometimes the valve sticks to the handle, try spraying a little vinegar or delimer and let it sit a moment; then wiggle it loose.

Can't remove valve on moen TL2377 shower faucet. I removed the handle by removing the screw. There is a chrome cup that I believe is a decorative cover over the valve stem. That is stuck and I don't want...


Take the round cover plate off and it will make getting that part off easier. You will be able to use a screw driver to help in removing it.

Be gentle and good luck

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

Can't remove the handle on Moen shower handle... Seriously!!!


heat it up with a torch, or just break it off, you can call moen at that point and kindly tell them that your handle broke and you need a new handle and cartridge. or you can get a drill and drill the allen screw out, they are such a pain i usually break them when i can get them out and get parts for it then

Moen Posi-Temp Shower Handle removal


I hate to say this but maybe the inside of the allen screw has been rounded out by a previous worker. You can drill the screw out and replace the handle with a new one. NOTE: Moen replacement parts are not cheap!

Moen single handle shower faucet, contstanly drips


Moen single handle - push pull has a screw beneath the handle cover plate. The Moen single lever handle has an allen wrench screw located under the curve of the handle. Once either one of these screws are removed, the handle should come off easily.
Once the handle is off, the water must be turned off and then you can remove the cartridge. Some cartridges are difficult to remove and may require a special tool. Most new cartridge packages have information on them to explain how to remove the cartridge.

Not enough hot water


The screws remove the handle. After the handle is removed their are little plastic like gears to limit th ehot watr. Relocate the gear ring for more hot water.
