We have a Moen one handle faucet in the bathtub. It was installed opposite for water but I see the answer to that question is to flip the cartridge. Well, now the appears that something is stripped as...

If the handle spins, but the cartridge remains stationary, then the stop inside the handle is broken and the handle must be replaced. To test, remove handle and see if you can turn the stem with a pliers. If you can turn the water on, then I'm right. Replace the handle. If not, then you have me stumped.

After I replace the cartridge in our kitchen faucet, the hot water now comes out whith the handle turned in the opposite direction, Do I just turn the cartridge 180 degrees?

Yes all you need to do is to remove handle from stem of cartridge and rotate stem 180 degrees. Reinstall handle and you should be ok. Thank,

The faucet drips and I cant figure out how to make it quit.

It can be repaired without taking entire valve out of wall. First shut water off and remove handle. Next you will see a collar that will screw off to remove the cartridge below is a link for a single handle moen faucet. Check it out to get an idea. If you know your model you can research on line ,but they are close enough to give you an idea.
Once appart replace washers or o -ring's. Pay attention to how you take it appart for easy reinstallation. This link is aparts breakdown of a single handle faucet. This site is installation instructions. This site you can enter you faucet model to retrive information.

The moen began to leak over time now i cant turn the water for

Call moen and give them your model no. they will send you a new cartridge free of charge. if you can't wait local stores like lowes will have them. Turn off your main water shut off valve and take off handle, then with some pliers take off brass ring, the cartridge will pull out. First notice the notch it rests in and notice where the hot water adjustment disc is. Assemble the new one the same way, put some vasolene on orings and reassemble. hope this helps.

I bought a replacement Danko faucet cartridge for an american standard bathroom sink and the package said hot/cold but when I installed it on the cold side the handle turns the wrong way. How do I reverse...

Thae stem you got that said hot/cold were designed to fit old style cross handle faucets. So both hot and cold turned the same way. If the cold side you are replacing turns the opposite direction then you will need to get a cold stem. Danco does make them. Ask the retailer where you purchased the H/C stem. I hope this helps..

Water will not turn off

are the handle extensions on the cartridges all the way. i know sometimes the moens are a pain after you put the trim on to get them on and seated right so it actually spins the cartridge. also check the cartridge alignment the cartridges have little white tabs on the sides that correspond with a slot in the valve body if they aren't aligned it won't shut off either

Put a lever handle on the tub/shower fixture, now temp doesn't

hi carey. turning the cartridge upside down will not change the direction. But tell me this, once you get used to the new cartridge won't it be fine as it is?
