SOURCE: moen single tub shower handle insatll

The valve has a faceplate that attaches with two screws and depicts the hot and cold mixing scheme on it. in the center of this is where the valve stem is located. It has a chrome escutcheon that slides into the faceplate and over the stem.There is a small -U- schaped clip that slides into the top of the valve body where the valve stem is seated that retains the valve stem. With all this in place all you have left is the acylic handle that has a unique shape to it on the internal portion that corresponds to the shape and position of the valve stm. Align the handle and stem and push the handle on. A small screw goes into the center of the handle to attach it to the valve stem. LASTLY you should have the acrylic button that covers the screw holding the handle on. All you do is align it appropriately and push the button onto the handle. The chrome handle version is essentially the same but is retained by a small allen screw on the underside of the base of the handle. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

How do I replace the cartridge in my Moen 7065 Vestige Single Handled kitchen Faucet?


first the water needs to be shut off, then with an allan wrench if i remember it should be 1/8. the allan screw is located in the handle. remove the screw completely and under the handle should be a nut, with a crescent wrench remove the nut and the cartridge should be ready to be removed. it is going to be difficult to come out with out the proper moen tool but vise grips will help as you have to pull straight up. if you find a plumping wholesale and give them the model # they should be able to give you the right cartridge. or if you call moen the will ship you one either way it should be free as that is a warranty item.

Moen Monticello 4-inch centerset bath faucets can be repair easily with only a screwdriver and adjustable wrench. Turn the water off to the both sides of the faucets under the sink. Open both the hot and cold-water valves to alleviate any remaining pressure. Remove the handles by grasping the base of the handle and turning it counterclockwise.( This works for both lever and cross handles). Loosen the Moen faucet cartridge bonnet nut with an adjustable wrench by turning it counterclockwise to the left. Pull the stem from the faucet by hand and replace. Reinstall the bonnet nuts and handles. Turn the water back on and test the faucet for leaks. The Moen Monticello faucet comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Try calling Moen to get your replacement parts free.

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

Re: Moen single-lever kitchen faucet like the 7100. When I replace the lever, it only goes up. I can't get it to go down. I'm pretty sure the cartridge is in right, with the U-clip and the other screw-on...


The water supply should have no bearing on the working motion of the faucet cartridge or handle. On both models of Moen faucet, the handle needs to be hooked under the cartridge's top cam bearing. It is a bit tricky sometimes. Here's the parts view for 7300 and 7310 Moen Kitchen faucet. Parts view for 7100 Moen.

Handle won't stay up


I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

My moen model 3175 is leaking. What is the likely cause and how do I repair?


The cartridge is absolutely the culprit. Very good shower valve, however the cartridges do go. Shut the water, take the handle off, disassemble the face plate, remove chrome collar from body, remove retention split spring, pull cartridge itself straight out. Replace new cartridge in reverse order of removal. Cartridge can be found at home depot, or any plumbing supply store. Good Luck,
Steven
