Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....
Do you have cold coming out? was this the problem that caused you to change cartridge? Did you use a Moen brand cartridge? if yes then the problem is in the balancing spool which is located on the left side of the valve it is a round brass fitting with a slotted head you can remove spool while water is off and clean debris from spool make sure you hear a clicking noise while shaking the spool if not lightly tap it on a hard surface until you hear a clicking noise or if you used an aftermarket cartridge like Danco brand return it and call moen for a free replacement

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!

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.

The diverter valve in the faucet may be stuck or bad. This web site has some views of faucet internal parts. Hope this is helpful to you.

I had a similar problem. After a few weeks the lever began to "tighten up". It began first with the hot water at full flow and progressed over a couple of weeks to full control.
