SOURCE: only hot water, no cold water.

The cartridges in the single handle units are prone to display this issue in hard water areas as mineral deposits such as calcium build up on the stem. The stems also have small rubber band like rings - for lack of a better term- that break apart and can clog the ports on the side where the are on. New stem should resolve the issue totally unless you have had a pipe break or other construction to the plumbing system recently. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

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.

Shower valve making banging noise pressure balanced even after changing cartrige


turn hose water off. open facet at lowest level to drain out lines. open a few faucets around the house to let air in. then close everything up. turn water back on. repressurize system by turning some faucets back on. see if it still happens. this is letting air back into any anti-water hammer devices that might be in system. sometimes they loose the air in them that makes them work. this should add air back in. good luck.

Water on/off is in the wrong position after changing the moen cartridge in my shower


Put your cartridge back the way it was originally. By rotating 180 you reverse the hot and cold. Leave the handle and plastic adapter off. Turn on your water supply and turn valve with the plastic adapter until the water is shut off. Remove the adapter and install it with the set screw for handle facing down. Put your handle back on and that should take care of problem. (I did the exact same thing as you today....small world)

Low water pressure from my shower.


You probably have a water flow reducer in the shower head. It is a rubber disk with a few holes in it. Just remove it and put the shower head back on. They are installed at the factory to save our environment. (Mine are all removed)

I have a Moen single handle tub/shower faucet. I cannot yet get much pressure to the shower head, there is good pressure from the faucet. I have placed the shower head in vinegar with no improvement. ...


Your problem is in the water restrictor located inside the shower head. All plumbing manufacturers install these small plastic internal blockers to reduce water down to 2.5 gals per minute. In your case, this restrictor is most likely filled with sediment which is restricting it even further. Remove the shower head from the curved shower pipe. Look inside where the water goes through it. You should be able to see the restrictor. Maybe you can flush out the sediment. Otherwise, remove it and I'm sure you'll get more pressure then originally installed. Because most restrictors are sort of plastic screens or cones, I usually put a wood screw through the center of this product and then once a few threads bite in, I use a plyers on the head or the screw and pull outward while holding the shower head in a stable position. If you are able to get it out, technically your "out of code" because now your going to get all the water it can really supply.Most people are delighted to have it gone.

Water temperature cools when using the shower


the hot water heater may have sludge built up in it. drain a few gallons from hot water tank and see if this makes a difference. you should drain a few gallons fom tank at least 2 times a year, to keep the sludge from building up. ( is the tank big enough for the job)

We installed a Grohe Relaxa Plus 10 years ago.


Likely a blockage in the line. Corrosion or other damaged parts. Try cleaning the filter screen first. Check for normal water flow without the shower unit attached to the spout. If OK, then the unit is the issue.
