You may have some obstruction. remove the cartridge and check if there's anything in the valve body. sometimes the rubber pieces on the cartridge can dislodge. you might try to flush a little water through the valve before you put it back together. remember Moen says "buy it for looks, buy it for life." The cartridge is guaranteed for life.

To talk about your problem forces me to assume a few things.....If you allow the water to flow without cartridges and handles, the water must be flowing straight through the cartridge channels and out into the tub. It is not flowing through your tub spout or shower head when you test the water this way. If I'm correct, then the problem is isolated to the water mix operation. That means coming out of your spout or shower head. So now I have to ask a question. When you operate as normal (cartridges and handles installed) does your problem show up only on your shower head or does it also show up when operating out of the tub spout? If the problem is isolated to the shower head, try a head replacement. It may be partially plugged. If it's head or spout there may be something in the mixing pipe that only shifts around as pressure increases. I hope that is not your problem. It would require pulling those pipes out for inspection and most likely replacement. Nimsgame

It is not uncommon for one or more faucet devices to go haywire immediately after a water heater change out, especially if the cold water line to the water is galvanized metal pipe and is quite old. while this scenario is the most common, it is not the only possibility. Sometimes it's just plain coincidence in the timing of events.
I would remove and replace the #1222 cartridge, inspect it for obvious debris from the heater replacement, briefly turn the hot water supply on to flush out any possible debris in the valve body itself, then reinstall the cartridge. Valve flushing should always be done before any cartridge gets reinstalled.
If the problem persists, the diverter on the tup spout would be my next focus. Again, debris from the heater replacement could (but far less likely) have affected its function. While not as easy to remove and exactly replace, by taking it off...then turning the water on, you will be able to observe the flow difference..With no difference the problem is in the valve and the cartridge should be replaced....with significant flow difference the, replace the tub spout. Be sure to take the tub spout with you, if it's the problem, when you take it to your plumbing supply store so it can be matched to a replacement. There are many tub spouts for many situations.
Search this site for Moen cartridge removal procedures. I have posted numerous solutions.

No cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve, when i turn handle to cold I get hot water, when handle is turn to hot i get hot water


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

Water will not turn off


are the handle extensions on the cartridges all the way. i know sometimes the moens are a pain after you put the trim on to get them on and seated right so it actually spins the cartridge. also check the cartridge alignment the cartridges have little white tabs on the sides that correspond with a slot in the valve body if they aren't aligned it won't shut off either

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.
