Question about Moen & Villeta Two Handle Lavatory Faucet

Cannot Get Cartridge Back into Faucet

We had a leaky faucet and purchased a repair kit for Moen Brass Cartridges. We were able to take the cartridge out, but for some reason cannot get it back in. There was some water in the neck, we soaked it up with a towel; other than that we cannot figure out what the problem may be, it will not go in the final quarter inch. Thank you.

    We think it may be mineral deposites, we will try the sanding. Thank you

    Have you tried rotating it? Many of these only fit one way . Also make sure that their are no old gaskets from the one you removed, still stuck to the bottom of the casting, where you are attempting to install the new one. I have had minerial deposites which I had to remove by lightly sanding in order to install a new one also.

    Hopefully you had the correct type of cartridge for your faucet.
    I would suggest watching this YouTube video to make sure the cartridge was inserted and fixed correctly. The travel of the cartridge may not be aligned correctly. Hard to think of anything else that could still cause the drip.

    How do i fix my leaky moen bathroom faucet?


    Moen faucets are easy to repair. The cartridge you're looking for is most likely the #1224 cartridge, sold in pairs, and available at almost any home improvement store.

    Shut the water off, unscrew the handle, remove the nut that holds the old, cartridge in, swap it out, and put the handle back. The whole job should take you about ten minutes.

    Good Luck!

    Leaky faucet


    This is generally due to a loose or faulty cartridge. To fix:

    1. Turn off water supply valves under sink.

    2. Block the sink drain to avoid losing small parts.

    3. Remove faucet handle. It is attached by a set screw, an odd size (I actually used a T9 torx screwdriver successfully, even though the set screw is hex head, since I did not have a matching allen key). The set screw is quite far into the handle, ~3cm, through a hole in the bottom of the handle. Depending on your countertop layout, you may have to actually remove the entire faucet from the countertop in order to get access to it, in which case follow the appropriate parts of your faucet installation directions in reverse.

    4. Remove dome. It will come off with a gentle turn/pull.

    5. Check the tightness of the exposed large hex nut. This is the piece that holds the cartridge in place. If you are lucky, it is just loose, and that's your problem; otherwise you will need a new cartridge.

    6. Unscrew that nut, remove. Pull out the cartridge.

    7. Replacement cartridges may be found at your local Moen dealer, or may be ordered directly from Moen +1-800-Buy-Moen. Parts are free due to the lifetime warranty. Part #1255 includes the cartridge, cartridge nut, and set screw. The nut must be changed with the cartridge (presumably due to its wear characteristics).

    To reassemble:

    8. If you have it, place a very small amount of plumber's silicone lubricant on the back of the cartridge, on the rubber seals around the three holes.

    9. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly. The cartridge only goes in one way, due to three guiding channels on its perimeter.

    Enjoy!

    I need replacement part for bath sink cartridge 4570


    The Moen 1225 or 1200 cartridges are the same except the 1200 is brass in stead of plastic. They will fit most Moen single handle faucets. If it is a two-handle faucet, the 1224 cartridge will fit most two-handle models unless it is a fancy widespread faucet more than about 15 years old. I don't know the model numbers for those cartridges. All of these cartridges require a removal tool if you can't get them out with a pair of pliers.

    How do I repair a dripping Moen M4600 (1978) bathroom faucet? Looks like the Moen 1 handle 64621P that is pictured here. Thanks. Richard


    First shut off water supply and remove cover on top of handle.They generally just snap in place so you can remove with screwdriver or knife point. Remove screw in center of handle and pull handle off. There is a copper retaining clip that holds cartridge in place. It has a small hole in the center on top that you can insert scratch awl or other pointed tool in and pull straight up to remove.You can try to grasp center stem of cartridge with pliers and pull up to remove. If the cartridge has not been changed for a long time it may be very hard to remove.
    You are going to have to replace the entire cartridge so you should have one on hand and you can purchase a tool made especially to remove moen cartridges.Just follow direction that come with cartridge or tool and remove cartridge. I would use the brass cartridge as I have not had good results with the plastic ones. When you get old cartridge out I would use a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly to lube o-rings and then reinstall new cartridge and clip,handle,screw,and cover. Good luck and thank you.
