Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet
I am trying to remove the handle and face plate off of a Moen single handle shower faucet. I have removed the set screw from the handle, but I cannot get it to come off. I don't want to damage it because I will be reusing it once I tile the shower enclosure. Are there any secrets I am missing?
Wow the post says can't get handle off even after set screw is removed and the advice given is, it's an Allen screw, duh he got it out but the handle is stuck. Pull off the handle there are limiters behind it, his problem is the handle genius not water temp.

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

There is a set screw in the handle, it can either be a hex screw or it can be a philips head screw depending on which faucet you have. If you have a clear decrative handle then there is a cap that you remove and the screw is behind it. Once you remove it you can remove the other trim.

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

It would be an allen wrench. Any typical multi sized wrench should have the proper sized allen wrench.
The holes can often become filled with grime so be sure to seat the wrench properly to prevent stripping.
