SOURCE: Moen Bath Tub Faucet

Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: My Moen kitchen faucet stopped working suddenly in

wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...

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.

I have a Moen Ascent kitchen faucet. The chrome handle that is attached somehow to the control valve underneath has come loose. How is the handle attached to the valve and what is the remedy?


Moen kitchen faucet handles in this series are held onto the cartridge stem with a set screw. First turn off the water supply to the faucet. You need to move the handle until you can see the small plug button that covers the set screw. This is ~3/4" from the edge of the handle. Remove the plug with a small screwdriver or other levering tool and adjust the handle if needed to get it on the cartridge stem. Then find the appropriate Allen wrench to tighten the screw. (It may be a 3/32" but this isn't always true.) To test if you have it tight, turn on the water and see if the water is easy to turn on and off. Turn off the water and replace the plug button. Then turn the water one last time.

To see a parts diagram for a couple of models of Ascent faucets, see https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Chrome_onehandle_high_arc_pulldown_kitchen_faucet/S71708 or https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Classic_stainless_onehandle_high_arc_pullout_kitchen_faucet/S71709CSL .

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(Do not over-tighten the set screw. This could damage the cartridge or handle.)

    LEAKS. HAVE GASKET KIT. BUT CAN'T GET IT APART!!


    MOEN ARE NOTORIOUSLY difficult to get appart. There is a "Special tool" just for Moen faucets/tubs/showers. It is like an old "Brake drum puller" or "Faucet handle puller". I think about $10 to $12 at Home Depot or Lowes. FYI Moen and Delta both give "FREE PARTS" on "MOST" faucets for many years if not life, if your not in a hurry. Check your original paperwork for warranty. The washer at the end of the valve after being installed for more than a year, usually binds up and gets torn apart when removed. It makes it VERY difficult to remove, even with the "Special tool". They (Moen) give you a plastic wrench like thing that almost never works, with the purchase of a "New valve" DELTA800-345-3358 ..MOEN-800-289-6636

    to tighten handle, you hold lever(top of handle) while unscrewing round piece below, entire assembly should come off.look down and should be screw down there, tighten it up. flow problem could be the areator, unscrew and clean if need'd. check supply tube's,shut off valve's, (if you have them)make sure they are wide open.
