How to remove the handle of a monticello 4551 moen faucet. I need to access the cartridge. After screwing the brass stem out, does the chrome ell shaped cap rotate to unscrew or is there a set screw I missed?

    Screw that holds the handle doesn't unscrew, keeps rotating in place.

Grab bottom of handle,(the fat part of handle closes to faucet body) and grip hard and turn counter clockwise to get to cartridge. dont use channel locks pliers or you risk damage to finish. can be done by hand and very tight grip

    You need a #1225 replacement cartridge. Pop the cap off of the handle. Use phillips screwdriver to remove the handle screw. Pull the handle off. Next, unscrew the two screws holding the cover plate on. After removing plate, there should be two integral stops, one on each side of the valve. Close the valves using a straight slot screwdriver. Pull on the brass cartridge spindle to ensure that the water is off. Remove the stop tube, which is a chrome cylinder at the center of the valve body. Look for a brass retainer clip at the top of the cylindrical portion of the valve body where the handle connects. It has a small hole and after you pull it out, you will see that it horse shoe shaped. Use your pliers or an awl stuck through the hole to pull the clip out. Note the position of your cartridge. There is a notch on the end of one side of the brass spindle at the center of the cartridge. Make note of its position. If you install it and get hot and cold reversed, just take the handle back off, and spin the brass spindle 180 degrees. The replacement cartridge comes with a white plastic tool designed to make removal easier. Use it. After loosening with the plastic tool, take your pliers and grab the brass stem. Pull as straight as you can. If cartridge will not budge, you might need a Moen cartridge removal tool. Do not spray with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench unless you like that taste in your water. If your clip won't go back on, it's because you didn't align the two ears on the cartridge. The ears should be at three o'clock and six o'clock. The cartridge must also be pushed in all the way. Good luck!

    My cold handle on a montecello faucet turns freely, however, nothing happins I have no cold water. What do I do?


    First check that the handle is tight. If yes take the handle off and turn on the water buy turning the stem without the handle if you still do not have water remove the stem and cartridge and see if you have water if yes clean or just replace the cartridge. If the faucet in old replace both.

    Just purchased the home and the handle on the moen 4551 cp is loose. The handle actually falls off the fixture. There is a plastic grommet or washer that is broken. How do I replace this plastic grommet...


    You can find the parts diagram here: http://www.moen.com/monticello/chrome-two-handle-low-arc-bathroom-faucet/_/R-CONSUMER%3A4551 . The washer kit is part number 97274. The lever and the hub and elbow that the handle connects to depend on the finish and whether you need the hot or cold side replaced. Levers: 97557 Chrome 97558 Pol. Brass, hub and elbow: Cold 100552 Chrome, 100552P Pol. Brass; Hot 100553 Chrome, 100553P Pol. Brass.

    You may be able to find the washer at a local hardware store (like Ace or Tru-Value). Alternatively, call Moen or visit the Moen site. 1-800-BUY-MOEN or http://www.moen.com/replacement-parts/product?product=IMGLIB:CA84437BN to order replacement parts.

    You'll have to pay for the washer kit. However, if the hub and elbow or the lever are damaged, call Moen and see if they will replace it under warranty.

    I hope this helps.

    Moen Monticello 4-inch centerset bath faucets can be repair easily with only a screwdriver and adjustable wrench. Turn the water off to the both sides of the faucets under the sink. Open both the hot and cold-water valves to alleviate any remaining pressure. Remove the handles by grasping the base of the handle and turning it counterclockwise.( This works for both lever and cross handles). Loosen the Moen faucet cartridge bonnet nut with an adjustable wrench by turning it counterclockwise to the left. Pull the stem from the faucet by hand and replace. Reinstall the bonnet nuts and handles. Turn the water back on and test the faucet for leaks. The Moen Monticello faucet comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Try calling Moen to get your replacement parts free.

    Need to change washer faucet


    Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.
