MOEN cartridges can be EXTREMELY difficult to remove sometimes. Be sure the horse shoe clip is out. Then you can use a crescent wrench and carefully turn the cartridge, once you get the cartridge to turn a little you can try to pull it again. They actualy make a tool to pull these. They run around $10 at your local home improvement store. The tool takes the place of the crescent and puting the handle back on to pull it. Hope this helps.

The spout on my Moen 7700 kitchen faucet is very "stiff". Do I need to get plumbers grease into it to loosen? If so, how? I've tried dropping the nuts under the unit beneath the sink and am still


you need to remove the moen cartridge. first, remove handle. at the top of stem, there is a U shaped retainer clip. it hard to see,use a small knife blade to catch the closed side of clip and slide clip out. once clip is removed, you should be able to pull cartridge out with a twist and pull motion. if it wont come out,that way dont pull to the point where you brake cartridge. that means replacing faucet. in extreme cases, you ca buy a moen stem puller for about $15. once stem i out simply coat with stem grease and replace cartridge. when replacing retaining clip, keep a pushing in pressure on end of stem to allow clip to slide into place. it iseasier to do than it sounds

No Hot water coming out when single handle on hot water side.Cold water comes out fine. Water in the lines leading to the taps, but no hot water coming out. This is a bathroom faucet Moen single handle.


Cartridge removal is a simple matter of exposing and pulling out the old cartridge. Before getting started, turn off both water valves underneath the sink and allow the water to run until the line is clear. Using a screwdriver, gently pry off the cap on the lever of the faucet handle to expose the cartridge. Remove the U-shaped retaining clip that holds the cartridge in place and pull the cartridge out. If dirt or residue makes removal difficult, use a Moen cartridge puller to assist you. A cartridge puller fits over the cartridge and gives you greater pulling power.

Soak the dirty cartridge in vinegar for four hours and replace.

If cleaning the cartridge does not work, call the Moen Helpline at 1-800-465-6636 or Customer Service at 1-800-465-6130 to order a free replacement. Locate the part number on the cover page of your instruction manual. If you no longer have the manual, look on the underside of the spout.

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Followed replacement procedure for moen posi temp shower valve (turn 45 degrees ctr clockwise after removing retainer and pull) valve will not come out.no matter how hard i pull..what next (solution ???)


Often time a Moen cartridge becomes very fond of it home and doesn't want to leave. I once stood on top of a kitchen sink just to get my back into it to remove a cartridge. That is a rare example.

Once the retainer clip is removed there is nothing to keep the cartridge in place except water minerals, lubricant, and suction caused by the lubricant. Frequently it will take a rocking back and forth of the cartridge to fully free it from it's confines before a good tug. If you don't use the white plastic tool that comes with the new cartridge, you could pull the center stem out only and that's all bad. Before installing the new one see if you can have someone turn on the house water for an instant while you hold a cup or glass over the hole for the cartridge. This will flush out of the valve body any particulate that might affect your new cartridge. The cup will help keep you and your bathroom floor dry.

After inserting the replacement as far as you can, place the tool back onto it and tap on it to make sure it is in all the way. Then use the squared end to put a wrunch on to you can turn the cartridge internally and align it for the retainer clip.

Moen shower head drips. Single lever shower only. Installed by home builder about 2001. How do I fix the drip/leak


Probably need to remove and replace the cartridge. Often sediment will tear part of the o-ring or seal on the cartridge and cause this problem...
varies by model, but generally, remove the cap on the knob, unscrew the knob, remove the keyed sleeve, remove the round trim plate & shut off the service stops (verify they are fully closed by pulling out on the valve stem) next remove the retaining clip (needle nose and be gentle) that holds the cartridge in place, then pull the cartridge straight out with vice grips or similar (or get a puller). clean the cartridge, flush out the valve body by slightly opening both service stops, reinstall cartridge and clip, open service stops and see if it still leaks. if it does, take your cartridge to the store (any reasonable HW or plumbing store should have a replacement) and get a new one. then reverse the process to reinstall.
If you send me the model I'll get you more specific instrucitons and pictures...

Dripping faucet


Moen is a cartridge style unit. They make two different cartridges that you can buy at Home Depot. Turn the water off under the sink and then remove the handle. You will see the the cartridge. It has a U shaped retaining clip that pulls out. Once you remove it, then take a pair of pliers and pull the cartridge out. Take it up to HD and match the one you have. The new one will slide right back in and you will reverse the process.
