Moen faucets have only one moving part. The stem slides up and down to open and close the faucet and rotates to regulate the flow of hot and cold water. Any leaking requires replacement of the cartridge.
First, turn off the water. To remove the cartridge, you'll need to remove the handle. This project can be like working a puzzle. If you have the manufacturer's instruction sheet for the faucet, you're ahead of the game. Without it, look for a retainer clip at the rear of the faucet just below the handle. Or, you may have to remove a set screw or snap-in "hot-cold" button and a handle pin or screw. On some faucets the swing spout must come off first. The retainer clip may be hiding beneath the handle inside a lift-out tube. Some cartridge faucets use two retainer clips–one by the handle and another by the cartridge. Retainer clips can be pried out with a screwdriver.
Once the retainer clip is removed, the cartridge simply pulls out. Use pliers, as shown in Fig. 6. Install the new cartridge by pushing it into place with the flat arrow, or other mark upward. If you use a lubricant on the cartridge, make sure it's silicone grease.
Check and clean the cartridge inlet ports. Before you button up the faucet turn the water back on for a minute to flush out the supplies. I had to look for this answer, hopefully this will work for you.

Temperature regulating faucet, aka anti-scald, are fast becomring a requirement under local building codes making it, technically speaking, a building code violation to alter the faucets function (assuming someone reported it the loccal buildings dept. That said the function of the anti-scald faucet cannot be altered. You should contact whomever installed the faucet to come back and adjust it so the temperature is more suited to your needs.

Need to increase the water temperature moen 270/3371


Remove handle, now you should see two white plastic pieces one slid inside the other. The inside piece should look like a gear. If you slide it out and rotate to the left a couple of teeth this will allow for handle to advance farther and in turn give you hotter water.

The all in one tub/shower faucet constantly flows. What can I do to fix this problem? Now I am a woman, so please make it simple.


Go to home Depot or loew and buy the seat replacement kit for your model of faucett. Your going to have to break out the tools (Philipps Screwdriver and a larger adjustable wrench) The remove the shower knob cover with a knife to access the mounting screw. Remove the screw and then the knob. (STOP!) Go turn off the water for the residence now! Then come back and remove the nut holding the faucett in place. The whole assy will with a little effort will come straigth out at you. Moen isnotorious for having to remove a plate from the bottom of the valve. NOTE the position of that plate and then remove it. Remove all of the seat seals one at a time and replace them with the new ones you purchased. Reinstall the NEW lower plate in the same position you removed the old one. Reinsert the assy back into the valve body. Tighten the retaining nut. Reinstall knob and secure with screw. Replace knob cover. Turn on the water NOW. Enjoy the non-leaking faucett.
