You need to loosen the two screws that attach the faceplate to the control valve on the outside of the shower stall. You should be able to pull the valve away from the stall and place a one or two inch board between the valve and the shower stall as a shim. Vary the thickness of the shim until you are flush with the handle, then secure the shim.

Moen annabelle faucet handle fell off


1st put the DOME cap on by rotating it 180 degrees, to go OVER the white plastic gasket, then press on. Then you have to get that plastic square knob inside the dome, in a downward postition, thus TURNING the WATER ON, to work the handle back in place. Put the set screw on with an (tiny) allen stick wrenchy thingy.

How do you remove the cartridge?


Remove the handle by removing set screw on the bottom of the handle. The screw is located under plastic button with the red and blue marking on it. Pull handle off and remove the retaining clip that is in front of the cartridge. Do this by holding the tab on the top with needle nose pliers and pulling up. Be careful to not break it as the new cartridge does not come with one. Use a pair of pliers to grasp the handle stem and pull out to remove cartridge. If you need to you can buy a moen removal tool and follow instructions to use.They have some very good easy to follow videos on u-tube that will show you step by step direction on what you need to do and helpful tips to make it easier. They explain themselves much better then I can. Try my moen.com. Thank you.

How remove the broken bathtub cartridge(Moen 1222)


The exact procedure to remove the old cartridge is with a plastic removal tool.With replacement cartridge you have to buy this plastic removal tool.Also there is same metal removal tool available.With the help of this tool you can easily remove the old cartridge.
Moen Cartridge Replacement Instructions

Moen shower faucet cartridge replacement is a project that will take some time to get done right. When is it time to replace a Moen cartridge? If you are like most people, you won't want to replace your old Moen cartridge until your old cartridge is starting to show its age.

Replacement is necessary, usually, once the old faucet starts to drip. Thankfully Moen faucet cartridge replacement is not difficult. However, if you are uncomfortable with doing the repair yourself, do not hesitate to call a professional plumber to do the job for you. This will guarantee that the job is done right.

If you follow these Moen faucet cartridge replacement instructions you will be able to replace your old cartridge by yourself. First of all, as with any plumbing repair, make sure that the water supply is turned off. Open the faucet to remove water pressure from the lines and let the remaining water drain from the pipes. You will then need to remove the faucet's handle by removing the decorative cover and removing the retaining screw. This will allow you to remove the handle.

Once the handle has been removed, work on releasing the splash plate from the wall. Generally there will be one or two screws to remove and the plate should release from the wall easily. From here the process begins to get a little trickier. Insert a shower stem socket onto the faucet valve's retaining nut and release the nut. Your Moen cartridge removal will be complete once you grab the cartridge with a pair of pliers and pull straight out to remove the old cartridge.

Clean any surfaces that you have access to and replace with the new cartridge. Follow all of the previous instructions in reverse order to re-assemble your shower faucet. Check to make sure that all the connections are tight before turning the water back on and testing the system out.
Now in your case the broken/cracked while removing the old cartridge so try this procedure carefully to get the stuck -up old cartridge out.
TAPPING the Threads into the Cartridge:
Carefully  hold one tab on the cartridge tight against the brass lip on the faucet body with needle nose and try  to drive the 1/2" tap into the smaller bore of the cartridge. It will take  about 15 minutes to slowly work the tap in all the way (maybe 3 turns?). Then  back out the tap... remove needle nose. [remember to turn the tap 1/4 turn back, for each 1/2 turn forward ... this clears the metal particles from the tap and makes the next 1/2 turn forward go smoother].

Next, assemble a 1/2" x 4" threaded rod, so it had threads all the way to the two jam nuts on one end)... If you use a bolt, get one with threads all the way up to the head. you may find it hard to find - so try a carriage bolt and spin a nut all the way up to the head .... continue: 

next on the bolt goes a 1/2 nut (this is the "jacking nut") and a flat washer so the jacking nut can spin easily against the next piece, a 1/2 drive socket (7/8" ) with the square hole toward the washer and jam nuts ( bolt head ).
The open end of the socket faces the brass body of faucet and rests on the round brass lip... having the same inside diameter. This allows a space for the cartridge to be pulled into ( a cavity). Thread the bolt into the tapped cartridge and snug it up so the 7/8" socket is aligned with and resting against the brass body. If the cartridge spins smooth, the threaded rod is GREAT. You can just work with the 1/2" rod and use needle nose (or similar) to stop the  cartridge from spinning, to get the rod threaded into the tapped threads in the cartridge... then, slip on the socket, washer and nuts.

Now snug it up tighter. Check socket alignment. Then begin turning the jacking nut ( the "extra" nut) until it contacts the flat washer and 7/8" socket. Now, as you continue to tighten the jacking nut, it will pull the 1/2 bolt (threaded rod) away from the faucet... and the cartridge will come along too. [You have to prevent the 1/2 rod from spinning while tightening the jacking nut. put a wrench on the bolt head.]
This procedure is bit lengthy and requires some appropriate tools,but this will release the stuck cartridge out.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do I remove the cartrige from the valve?


Assuming you have a single handle valve, Moen has 2 types of cartridges. The Posi-Temp (replacement cartridge # 1222) turns on and off simply by turning the handle left to right and right to left. The Moentrol (replacement cartridge #1225B) turns on by pulling on it. Handle style does not aid in identification.

Buy your new cartridge before you start and buy genuine Moen! OEM cartridges can give Moen a bad name.

Once the water to the valve is off, remove the handle.

The procedure is the same for either type of valve so use the link below as a reference.

Firmly grab the temperature limit stop and pull it off the valve body. Using pliers, pull out the brass retainer clip. Place the notched end of the white plastic tool that came with your new cartridge onto the old cartridge and rotate as needed until completely seated on cartridge. Put a wrench onto the squared end of the white tool and turn back and forth several times. Remove the tool, grab the brass center of the cartridge with pliers and pull the cartridge out.

Briefly turn the water on ond off to flush the valve of any possible lingering particulate.

Insert new cartridge and use white tool to assure cartridge is all the way in then use the squared end to rotate the cartridge as necessary into an alignment position to reinstall the retainer clip.

Moen monticello shower control, remove handle


If your Posi-Temp has no water coming through the valve my first step would to replace the cartridge (Moen pn 1222). The valve as a simple one. Get the part first so you can ues the plastic tool that comes with it if you need to. Beneath the actual lever insert on the handle hub you will notice a small hole. this is to gain access to the allen head screw which holds the handle in place

Moen fauset # 1225 Shower new cartridge and it still drips.


is it official moen 1225 ? generics can be of poor quality. turn off house water and remove cartridge. Small fingers? Put in valve and feel for debris or turn on whole house again for a few seconds to flush out valve. try another cartridge. Or try this first. take off handle and push in on stem. does drip stop. ? perhaps handle is not on right.
