Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....

1 Answer

How do you turn off the moen 82691 shower valve when new.

I replaced an old, hard to operate valve.  The new valve is either stuck or I'm not smart enough to figure out how to shut it off..It is off when the knob/handle is centered.  But that doesn't give any adjustment.  At that point shouldn't water be coming out?  Dan

If it is hard to pull out or push in the valve then you will need to replace it. On moen valves you can not rebuild the cartridge you can only replace them. A new cartridge will cost you around 15 to 20 dollars.

Also I would tack the cartridge with you when you gao and buy it because they make 2 different ones.

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.

Replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower


make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot


Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
