You will have to use some considerable force when pulling out the cartridge. I like to use a pair of plyers and as I am pulling the cartridge I also wiggle the cartridge up and down.

How do I pull a moen single lever kitchen cartridge out that is old and stuck?I removed the horseshoe shaped clip. When I pull the valve stem, it doesn't budge.


there is a little plastic tool that comes with a new cartridge....you use it to turn the cartridge back and forth....breaking the seal that has formed between the rubber on the outside of the cartridge and the inner wall of the valve. After doing that you should be able use a pair of channel locks to pull the cartridge out.

Moen positemp cartridge won't come out of brass body housing


If the clip has been removed it will come out. these things get incredibly tough to remove. Moen does sell a little puller just for these. I have used a socket with the screw in the stem to act as a puller.

If you have the water off AND your sure your have the correct new cartridge you can give the valve a little heat to help soften things up a touch. Use a heat gun with caution

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil
