SOURCE: 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!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber

There is a small allen screw in the base of the handle- the part the stem screws into to turn the water to the on position.

SOURCE: I have a moen pull out kitchen faucet that leaks

You have a bad internal o-ring or the sprayer o-ring is leaking, if you look under the sink turn it off and then turn it back on, if you see it leaking out the center shft where the water pipes go into then the faucet may have a broken pipe or loose pipe. check and tell me where it's leaking at. You can buy kits to repiar them they are inexpensive.

SOURCE: How do I remove the aerator on a moen pull out

It should just unscrew. You might need some needle nose pliers as the aerator may be slightly recessed.

Water wont come out spout


Remove the aerator from the end of the spout, then turn it on. If you get proper water flow the aerator is clogged, clean it or replace it.

How do i put aerator back in ?


the aerator has a few components the screen always goes in the aerator housing first i cant tell you the sequence after that there is usually some type of plastic disc then a rubber neopreme ring once you have that gently take the aerator assembly ( looks like a large wedding band) and slowly marry it to the faucet spout and turn clockwise slowly ( DO NOT CROSS THREAD) tighten with hand turn water on if it works ok then put paper towel around aerator ring u put on take vice grip or channel lock pliars and tighten more good luck...if assembly not right rearrange the pieces the screen is always the thing that goes in first

No water comes out


If it's a kitchen or lav faucet, unscrew the aerator and clean or replace it. A kitchen faucet could have the diverter jammed with debris. Look on line to see how to remove the handle and spout to clean it. If it's a shower valve, just replace cartridge.

Had new water heater installed. Ever since, there is very little water flow from both hot and cold faucets of both (dual) sinks in 2nd floor bathroom. Faucets are Moen 9000 M-PACT type. Could air be t


check the aerators on the faucets. i know after i change a hot water tank there is always some crud that comes through the lines and gets stuck in the aerators, they are the part that holds the screens in place on the spouts.

I have a brand new moen muirfield high arc faucet with low pressure at spout but good pressure at side spray what can i do to get better pressure at spout


clevine336-

The design of a hand sprayer is meant to provide a higher pressure spray (the smaller outlet size means greater velocity in the water coming out of the sprayer head). That said, there could be something constricting the water flow in your faucet. If you unscrew the aerator on the end of the faucet do you get better pressure? Is the screen in the aerator clogged with sediment or mineral deposits? If this is the case you may have water requiring periodic cleaning of the aerator.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Ever since my Moen kitchen faucet (Model CA87010) was installed the water is full of foam. Air? How to fix?


There may be construction debris or residue partly blocking the aerator. Have you unscrewed the end and cleaned it out? Sometimes the fellow may not have assembled the aerator in the right order and a simple rearranging of parts will clear it up.

I have a moen #7560 faucet that makes a whistle sound when it is turned on and running. what is the cause


to much or too little water pressure or some sort of build up in the aerator.
Try removing the aerator and turning the water on and see if you have the same result....if not replace the aerator....if so check for scale build up inside spout or the water pressure.

My Moen kitchen faucet stopped working suddenly in that only a thin stream of water would flow at most when I turned on the hot water handle or the cold water handle to the maximum positions. I replaced...


wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...
