When installing a new cartridge you need to put stem grease on the o-rings or you are taking a great risk of cutting the o-rings upon installation. doing this will allow the cold water to mix with the hot causing this problem it is quite common for this to happen without the grease

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

SOURCE: only hot water, no cold water.

The cartridges in the single handle units are prone to display this issue in hard water areas as mineral deposits such as calcium build up on the stem. The stems also have small rubber band like rings - for lack of a better term- that break apart and can clog the ports on the side where the are on. New stem should resolve the issue totally unless you have had a pipe break or other construction to the plumbing system recently. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Something is caught in the stem. Make sure the stem is free of debris. Also check that the valve or cartridge is intact.

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.

take valve cartridge out of valve It may be put in 180 degrees out

compare cold side inlet to warm side inlet: spring, little black gaskit/s seal maybe a ball/s

The cold side works right

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.

When you turn the handle over to the hot side the water will stop coming out. What would cause this problem.


Your control cartridge needs to be replaced. If the water is turned on by pulling on the knob you need Moen service part #1225B. If the water is turned on simply by turning the knob counterclockwise you need serviic part #1222. Try to turn the water on briefly after either cartridge is out to flush any debris that might be still in the body of the valve. Get the cartridge beforehand. the come with a handy removal tool.

When you turn to hot it doesn't come out. Cold does.


Assuming that you have hot water at other faucets the problem could be a varnish buildup in the cartridge. After shutting off the hot and cold water either by turning off the main or at the faucet stops (if equipped), remove the cartridge and soak it in white vinegar to break up the varnish. You can clean it up with an old toothbrush and make sure that it is working. It should rattle when you shake it. new cartridges are not very expensive so you can just buy a replacement at any home center as well. If you are the original owner of the faucet Moen will send you a free replacement cartridge if you call them.

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

Replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower


make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.
