SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: removing a moen cartridge

Remove the retaining clip and then take a pair of plier or channel locks to grab the stem and work that stem side to side gently as you pull up or out.

SOURCE: Moen shower/tub faucet

hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

SOURCE: no cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve,

Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

How do I adjust a handle on a 4inch two handle moen bath sink faucet? It does not align properly when turned off. It is the Banbury style.


turn off water Remove set screw on side of handle. once the handle is removed try to realign. if that does not work remove the cartridge nut and reposition the cartridge as to set properly. the cartridge normally has a tab on it set in the groove of the valve body.

Single-handle tub/shower: knob turns but no water comes out.


Try removing the screw in center, and pull handle off. Check to see if maybe just inside of handle is stripped, or if it has a plastic insert with splines that are stripped. Thus just replace handle or insert or both. You can try turning it with vise grips or pliers carefully when handle off to see if tap itself is still good. My guess is a replacement handle and/or insert and you'll probably be good to go. Any hardware store should stock parts, reasonably priced.

On most moen single handle valves there is a washer that is supposed to fit over stem on cartridge.This washer has two flat sides to fit over flats on stem. The only other thing I can think of is that your valve face plate is mounted a little to far out and won't let back of handle go all the way closed. I would try tightening the two screws that secure face plate to valve a little and see if that helps. Good luck. Thanks

Hard to pull up handle


Are you asking about faucet handle or pop up drain . If you are referring to faucet handle the easiest thing to try first is to remove center cover from top of handle. It's the one with the moen insignia or name on it. These are usually just a friction fit so use a small blade screwdriver or knife blade to carefully remove cover. There is a screw that holds handle on cartridge. Remove screw and gently remove handle by pulling up. If you have not shut off water supply valves this will open valve and run water. Push down on carteidge stem to shut off water. Use a penetrating oil such as WD-40 and spray around cartridge.Allow a few mins. then pull cartridge stem up and push it back down several times spraying with penetrating fluid several times. You can move stem by gripping with pliers. This should help free cartridge . If this helps you can save on service call. Reinstall handle with screw and center cover. Hope this helps. Thanks

The handle seems to be loose because there is a lot of play in the handle befor the stem ingages . Is this normal in the handle


If it's the one I'm thinking of, remove cap in center, and remove Philips screw, and pull handle off. If you have the hex shaped piece still on the stem, look at underside for an Allen key, set screw and tighten it, and put handle back on.

There is a cap on the top of the handle which can be removed by popping it out with a knife or a small flat tip screw driver. Inside you will see a screw which holds the handle to the faucet. Tighten this and replace handle cap.

HOT AND COLD REVERSED MOEN & ONE HANDLE TUB


This is a very simple fix. NOTE: This is for a Posi-temp model only!! First turn off the house water. Relieve the water pressure at a nearby sink. Then remove the handle from the faucet. Remove the black plastic piece, then the two white plastic pieces (these control how hot the water gets by controlling how far the handle turns), then the metal cover over the center piece of the valve. Once these are out of the way, there is a small metal clip that you can see that holds the cartridge in place sitting in a **** on the top of the center piece. Remove this carefully with a small straight edge screwdriver, taking care not to lose it. Then with a small pair of pliers, pulling on the center of the cartridge, pull straight out. Once the cartridge is completely out, turn it counter clock wise, 180 degrees and then reverse the process. The hot/cold will be in proper location now.
Now for an older style, simply take the handle off, turn the center portion of the cartridge 180 degrees counter clock wise and return the handle. Hot/cold will now be in their proper locations.
Good luck.

Need to remove inside door panel on drivers side 1999 chevy silverado z-71 3 door new body style


just pop out the triangle piece from the top at the top front of the door panel with a flat head screwdriver. Then simply pop out the door lock cover from the aft side and the door handle cover from the aft side as well. Then pop up your cap containing the auto door locks and windows and disconnect the cannon plugs. Then just remove 2 screws (1 from under the door lock/window cap and one just insde the door handle itself. You'll then life up and towards you to remove the panel. Don't pull it too far out because you'll still need to disconnect the speaker cannon plug and pull out the door open light at the bottom aft of the panel. You can then set the door panel off to the side.

How to set up the temperature min max temperture on moen bathroom


Pop out center of handle, and remove the screw from center, and remove handle. There should be a little nylon gear like sleeve that will pull out from center. Pull it out, and rotate it one way or the other, a little at a time, and slide it back in. Now just slide your handle on long enough to try it, no need to attach with screw yet until your done. May take a few tries to get it where you want it, then simply put handle back on, secure it with the screw, and snap cap back over screw.
