SOURCE: shower head leaks water when water is turned on

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.

You have water going to it just like a regular valve, but you run the water out of the 3 function piece to your different water features.

Moen single lever shower handle gives only hot water


A bit more information is needed; is this a Moentrol or a Posi-temp valve? You will need to shut water down to the shower. If it is a Moentrol, it could be an issue with either the cartridge or the pressure balancing spool. If you are at least getting water, I am going to assume that it is a Moentrol.
You will need to turn water off to the valve. Pull the cartridge and examine as to whether or not debris is blocking the supply holes of the cartridge. If your valve has built in shut off screws, you can slowly turn water on to clear any debris that may be inside the inlet port. I typically use a piece of PVC to go over the valve body so that water does not leak between the wall and the shower. Again, just turn water on enough to start it flowing.
If you do not notice anything amiss with the cartridge, it could also be the pressure balancing spool. If that is on your valve, it will be a flat head screw about the size of a nickel. Water will need to be off for the removal of the spool as well. Again, you will be looking for debris that is blocking water flow.
If this is an older Moen faucet, you may just want to replace the cartridge while you have it removed. If it is a push/pull, it is a Moentrol. If you have to turn the handle for water to come out, it is a Posi-temp. In my area, the cartridges run from $20-$40. However, Moen does offer lifetime on their cartridges. Lately, I have had a few more hoops to jump through to get the replacement cartridges from Moen, but they are still very pleasant to deal with.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

My water pressure is very low from the original install is there a way to adjust the faucet to allow a better pressure flow


Your issue could be caused by the water restrictor in the shower head. To know for sure, remove the shower head and then turn the water on.

Very tough water restrictions have manufacturers using plastic water restrictors in the shower heads.

Although you are not supose to, some shower heads can be taken apart to modify, or remove the restrictor.

I hope this helps you.

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

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.

HOW DO I FIX A LEAKING FAUCET ON A MOEN L3189


you need to remove the cartridge behind the handle. If it is dripping from the spout or shower head.
If you pull the handle to turn it on it is called a moentrol valve and take a number 1225 cartridge....it it just turns to turn on it is called a posi-temp valve and takes a 1222 cartridge.

Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help

You do not mention what make faucet we are talking about.

Moen makes two styles of Shower valves
The one that you discribe is called a Posi-Temp the goes from off to cold and to hot as you turn the valve counter clockwise.
The pressure should be greater mid range ans the cold and hot water mix but generally not noticeable.

A Moentrol valve is that should have been iinstalled in order to have greater control on temp and pressure.
Moentrols work but turning the valve clockwise for cole and counter clockwise for hot and pulling out on the valve for the water to come on.
