    BUT, the problem, as it turned out after doing some more explorative work, is the shower head. Danze will send me a new one and everything should be fine. Thanks for your response. And no, I did not install the cartridge upside down or backwoods! :-)

    As I mentioned before, Danze had been kind and sent me a new shower head and now I have water!! :-)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: shower diverter push handle is squirting water out

If you are handy, the best solution is to call delta and have them send you a new diverter. They will need the model of your faucet. The new diverter will come with instructions on the install process. As far as fixing it without the new diverter, I don't believe you will be able to.

SOURCE: Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed

Hello. It sounds like your plumbing was installed wrong, with the hot and the cold supply lines reversed. If that is the case, those supply lines will have to be replumbed to make your faucet work properly. Often, if those lines are accessable, it is only a 20 minute job. Joe

Handle will not turn water off


single cartridge? pull old one, flush some water through empty valve then install new cartridge. once installed, make sure the horseshoe clip is properly inserted to keep the stem in. once the clip is in right, there is a chrome tube with a ridge that slides over the barrel and the clip. the ridge acts as the stop for the handle. also make sure there are stops inside back of handle to hit the ridge on the chrome tube. the plastic inside the handle may break off allowing the handle to spin. the stem unit/cart may also be installed 180 degrees out of place. pull the lock clip and use the remover tool that came with new cart to rotate it 180 degrees with water supply turned off.

You need to install a new moen cartridge its a single handle posi-temp cartridge you should be able to get 1 for free if you are the original owner by calling 1-800-buy-moen more than likely when soldering in the new valve a little bit of solder broke free into the cartridge or hard water. When the water gets turned off and then turned back on it can break free alot of particles that can get jammed up in these cartridges or any fixture for that matter you will need a cartridge puller to perform this job with ease.

Remove handle and check temperature adjustment it maybe out. Remove handle and slide little adjustment gear out and move it a 1/4 turn and reinstall it to see if any difference occurs. If it is not set right you want be able to turn water off and possibly cartridge maybe be bad. With it being brand new and it should work out of the box take it back if no simple fixes will work. You want the best and not have to work on something you just bought anyway. Something may have been left off the cartridge maybe seat bad or o ring.

What is wrong with my single handle shower fixture in that it does not give out enough hot water


This is a common problem with Moen shower valves and fairly simple to fix. The pressure balancing cartridge is sticking inside. You need to remove the cartridge and clean it with white vinegar. The problem appears in valves that are not used very often - like in a guest room shower. The impurities in the water leave a varnish-like residue that causes the element to lock up and restrict hot water flow. If you are the original owner Moen will send you a free replacement cartridge but cleaning the one you have will do the trick. Once it's working be sure to run the hot water at least once a week. Here's how to fix it:
1. Turn off water supply to the house or at the PEX panel if you have one.
2. Remove handle by loosening the set screw at the bottom of the handle and pulling off.
3. Remove escutcheon plate by removing 2 screws on the face.
4. Remove escutcheon tube surrounding the valve by pulling with a needle nose pliers.
5. Using an awl or small screwdriver pry the retaining clip up and remove - DON'T DROP IT behind the tile!!
6. Using a pliers, pull out the cartridge. If it won't budge you can try some WD-40 or PB Blaster and if that doesn't work you'll need to buy a "Moen Cartridge Puller" (about $13 @ Home Depot) and it will come right out.
7. Shake the cartridge. If it does NOT rattle you've found the problem. Soak it in white vinegar for 15 minutes and try shaking it again and repeat till you hear the pressure balance element move back and forth. A shot of PB Blaster also helps.
8. Once the element is moving freely you can reassemble everything by working in reverse - don't forget to reinstall the retaining clip or the cartridge will become a missile! TIP: To prevent dropping the clip tie a string through the hole in the top and tape the other end to the wall. If it slips you can just pull it up. Also, spray a little PB Blaster in the valve body before inserting the cartridge to make it easier to seat it.
Hope this helps!

It could be debris in the cartridge at the tap itself. Whther 2 cartidges or 1 , it wouldn't be uncommon for those to clog up as well, and it really doesn't take much to cause a decrease in flow. Turn water off to tap(s) and remove handles, then cartridges in behind with proper socket or wrench and inspect for debris inside hole cartridge came out of, as well as the cartridge.
