Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet

1 Answer

I have removed the cartridge from my one-handled shower faucet with a removal tool from Home Depot. I think that the inside part of the cartridge came out leaving the outside of it still inside the pipe. How do I get the rest of the cartridge out?

If you are talking about the black rubber sleeve that is around the outside of the cartridge, you will have to CAREFULLY work it out with a flat scredriver. Be careful not to dig into the brass housing of the rough-in valve. It may be a little painstaking, but this will work. I have also used a piece of copper pipe to work on that rubber piece. The copper pipe will not dig into the brass the way a screwdriver will. May want to try that first.

I have a single handle shower faucet, turn all the way and you get only hot water.... It has been dripping over the last few weeks when off, hot water. now it's a steady flow. How do I adjust...


hi there:) your problem is caused by the cartridge inside the valve body. could be one of 3 things...1)the cartridge is damaged 2)hard water build up 3)foreign matter. it is not to difficult to replace it yourself: first turn off the water then find the set screw, which holds the handle in place, usually located at the base of the handle and remove it. (look closely/carefully cause it's hiding) then remove the escutcheon ring and the trim sleeve to expose the "bonnet" (lock ring) and remove it. (ritey titey lefty loosey) now you can remove the cartridge and inspect it for debris/damage. if you need a new one just take it w/you to any plumbing supply including home depot and/or lowes and they will help you find it. here is the installation/owners manual from peerless: http://peerless-faucet.com/customer-support/find-repair-parts/documentation/P8760.html hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)

Shower/tub faucet does not provide cold water, only to warm and hot.


The faucet has a cartridge that is dirty or bad. Turn off water to the house and remove the cartridge. Take it to Lowes or Home Depot and get another replacement. follow the instructions in the package to the tee.

The old cartridge easily pulls out after you pull out on a clip on the top of the internal assembly. Just take the handle off, slip out the chrome sleeve and remove the clip. The cartridge will pull out with minimal force.

Then head to the store!

LEAKS. HAVE GASKET KIT. BUT CAN'T GET IT APART!!


MOEN ARE NOTORIOUSLY difficult to get appart. There is a "Special tool" just for Moen faucets/tubs/showers. It is like an old "Brake drum puller" or "Faucet handle puller". I think about $10 to $12 at Home Depot or Lowes. FYI Moen and Delta both give "FREE PARTS" on "MOST" faucets for many years if not life, if your not in a hurry. Check your original paperwork for warranty. The washer at the end of the valve after being installed for more than a year, usually binds up and gets torn apart when removed. It makes it VERY difficult to remove, even with the "Special tool". They (Moen) give you a plastic wrench like thing that almost never works, with the purchase of a "New valve" DELTA800-345-3358 ..MOEN-800-289-6636

My moen model 3175 is leaking. What is the likely cause and how do I repair?


The cartridge is absolutely the culprit. Very good shower valve, however the cartridges do go. Shut the water, take the handle off, disassemble the face plate, remove chrome collar from body, remove retention split spring, pull cartridge itself straight out. Replace new cartridge in reverse order of removal. Cartridge can be found at home depot, or any plumbing supply store. Good Luck,
Steven

Delta Series 1400 shower faucet, no or very little water out of the cold side of the faucet. Plenty of hot water. What can I do to fix this?


Remove the handle by opening the little red/blue cap. Use a hex key to remove the handle. Remove the tope ring holding in the cartridge in. Take out the cartridge and you will most likely see particles blocking it. make sure you use a little valve lube or vasline on the seals before you put it back in so you will have smooth operation. If that doesnt cure it just replace the cartridge at lowes or home depot and bring the old one.
