Http:// The cover plate is held in place with part #972-300. That part has threads on the inside like a typical nut. Grab firmly ann twist counterclockwise.

Took a shower and then the water would not turn off no matter how I turned the handle.

Check beneath the bathroom sink there must be a valve to close the water from going into the bathtub. Or check for a little door near the bathtub find that valve and close it. You have to buy a new handle cause that one is ruined. If you don't find the valve, remove a plastic cover that it's in the middle of the handle, there must be a philip screw in there, take it out, remove the handle and then with shearing pliers turn counter clockwise and it will close.

Usually when I turn the handle on, I have to turn it only to a certain point to start getting hot water. This morning, I had to turn at least two times farther and wait an extremely long time for hot...

It is probably the regulator/cartridge valve in the handle and is fairly easy to fix yourself.

Remove the screw cover from the center of the handle (use a small flat screwdriver to pry it off), then remove the handle (phillips head in counterclockwise direction), there is a metal plate behind the handle remove that and tuen you can turn the water off here as well - the middle one is has a cartridge valve and the other two on each side are the water supply shut off - use a flat head screwdriver to turn them clockwise to shut off the water supply.

There will be a bonnet nut on the center pipe - remove that with an adj. wrench. Pull the valve out (channel lock pliers work well) of the center pipe and insert the new cartridge.

Reinstall the bonnet nut and turn on the water supply valves on either side, replace the metal plate and faucet handle.

Good Luck!

Installed new valve but when I screw the handle in I can't shut the water off completely. I can pull and turn the water on but when i push it in, it only turns off part of the way. To shut it off i have to...

On most moen single handle valves there is a washer that is supposed to fit over stem on cartridge.This washer has two flat sides to fit over flats on stem. The only other thing I can think of is that your valve face plate is mounted a little to far out and won't let back of handle go all the way closed. I would try tightening the two screws that secure face plate to valve a little and see if that helps. Good luck. Thanks

Once your cover plate is removed you can access the cartridge. With different styles by Price Pfister there maybe an additional pressure balancing part behind the cartridge. If so they should both be replace at the same time. Remove and take to your local plumbing parts store for a match up.

No cold water

Anti Scald Valves have an adjustment under the handle (remove handle) to allow so much hot water in no matter how far handle is turned. Its possible that the adjustment is set to allow only hot water in, this of course defeats the purpose of anti-scalding. Check to see if you can adjust this back. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was of any help.

We have a newly installed Delta single-handle shower faucet and cannot figure out HOW to get a warm water mix. No matter where we turn the handle, we get different temperatures of "cold."

That is a graduated water mixer valve, and it sometimes has a little white water restrictor blocking flow from your hot water port. See if that was left in by removing the handle with all water shut off to the valve and reattach then try again. This can also happen if you have a tankless water heater because pressure controls heat. Typically a Tankless water heater system will require little, to no cold water to your bathtub valve because of the heavy water flow at the tap. Remember, flow equals temperature. Less flow = more heat, more flow = less heat.
