Question about Plumbing
How to turn water off and on for shower only installation?
Would you take a photo of the shower faucet and surrounding area and show us? The tap should be somewhere around.

SOURCE: Moen Bath Tub Faucet
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!

My best guess is the supply valve for the hot side isn't open all the way. This valve is right on the valve and is accessed by taking off the front cover plate. This would still allow the pressure balancing valve to let water through but then you would have a small flow on the hot side.
If this isn't it then then cartridge is bad.
Please rate this response and good Luck,, phil

You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.

Yes shut of main water, then remove handle, then take off bonnet, that holds stem in valve. You will have to take stem with you to hardware store to match up. Put it back together in reverse, turn main water back on. Now you tell everyone your a plumber and get much respect.

Testimonial: "yes, I did just what you described. Surprisingly, Westlake Ace Hardware had new replacement stems and I didn't have a big plumber expense! "
