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.

As you look at your valve on the right you will see a large screw fitting.inside this fitting is a temp/ pressure balance spool. it has failed for some reason and needs to be replaced. On both sides of the valve are 2 smaller screws. these are the water shut off valves. turn off the water and remove the larger screw fitting. remove spool and replace. Hope this helps.

HOT AND COLD REVERSED MOEN & ONE HANDLE TUB


This is a very simple fix. NOTE: This is for a Posi-temp model only!! First turn off the house water. Relieve the water pressure at a nearby sink. Then remove the handle from the faucet. Remove the black plastic piece, then the two white plastic pieces (these control how hot the water gets by controlling how far the handle turns), then the metal cover over the center piece of the valve. Once these are out of the way, there is a small metal clip that you can see that holds the cartridge in place sitting in a **** on the top of the center piece. Remove this carefully with a small straight edge screwdriver, taking care not to lose it. Then with a small pair of pliers, pulling on the center of the cartridge, pull straight out. Once the cartridge is completely out, turn it counter clock wise, 180 degrees and then reverse the process. The hot/cold will be in proper location now.
Now for an older style, simply take the handle off, turn the center portion of the cartridge 180 degrees counter clock wise and return the handle. Hot/cold will now be in their proper locations.
Good luck.

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.

Need to replace handle adapter kit on a Moen monticello two handle lavatory faucet


Lowes might carry them but i know a plumbing supply house does for sure. Take center caps off hot and cold handls, then screws everything else should pull right off.

Something is caught in the stem. Make sure the stem is free of debris. Also check that the valve or cartridge is intact.
