Turn the inserted part of the cartridge not the whole cartridge, you will see the cartridge has a small flat on one side of the stem reorient it opposite of where it is now and you will reverse the direction. you can do this by removing the handle only and not having to turn the water off. remove the cap and single screw and turn insert than reinstall

Hi carey. turning the cartridge upside down will not change the direction. But tell me this, once you get used to the new cartridge won't it be fine as it is?

Temperature regulating faucet, aka anti-scald, are fast becomring a requirement under local building codes making it, technically speaking, a building code violation to alter the faucets function (assuming someone reported it the loccal buildings dept. That said the function of the anti-scald faucet cannot be altered. You should contact whomever installed the faucet to come back and adjust it so the temperature is more suited to your needs.

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 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.

take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.

if not contact Trayco company Florence Sc
they have the largest supply of spare parts in the country

good luck
