Question about Moen Chateau Loop-Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray ....

1 Answer

Cold water works, hot does not

Just installed. Moen CA87006 side handle. Nothing is kinked. Hot and cold water hooked up. Hot water is available but when I turn the handle to HOT it slows to a trickle. Cold water works fine at full flow. Yes hot water is turned on. No installation problems are obvious. All parts were there. Curious at best.

    The previous faucet, single handle also, had perfect pressure and hot water was fine. Location has good pressure when the faucet is not hooked up. Don't believe it is a pressure issue. I'm about 20 feet from the water heater.

Your problem can be fixed by running a loop in the plumbing. If you hired a professional in the first place it would already be done. basically the water pressure isn't enough, i bet your faucet is on the second or third floor, or even just THAT far from the water heater.

Moen and all shower valve manufacturers follow american federal guidelines. Hold the unit in your hand with the handle facing you - the left side is the hot water inlet and the right side is the cold water inlet.

We are trying to find a re build kit to rebuild the faucet and switch the cartridge to have hot and cold on the proper side. Also how to rebuild the faucet when its fixed

You get the rebuild kit FREE from Moen, they will ship it to your door.
The hot and cold is a hook up issue and not resolved in the cartridge. Just switch the input hoses. Sometimes the faucet is actually installed 180 degrees out and causes the same condition. I presume that it worked okay, except the reversal of the water... so switch the hoses.

Hot side is cold cold side is hot

hello, this can happen if the shower body unit was installed incorrectly, the installer connected the hot to the cold side and cold to the hot side, what you can do might be a bit difficult but the water supply lines are reversed you need to open up the wall and attach the cold and hot lines to the right sides.. hope this helps

I have a new moen single handle shower faucet that is only giving one temp of water (cold). Only if I have it on very slow will I feel hot water. Any idea how to fix

Did the hot water shut off get turned back on fully after the change? Is the hot water line kinked under the sink? Is the hot water shut off valve working?
