SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: waters hot instead of cold when you turn it on

You have to remove cartridge and rotate 180 degrees then re-install. Was it removed or replace lately?

SOURCE: no cold water from Moen 2253 tub/shower valve,

Here is a quick check to see if the cartridge may be at fault allowing the cold and hot to mix. Turn off the hot water supply, with hot water supply off turn faucet on. Turn to the hot and cold sides, If you have only cold water then your faucet cartridge is at fault or the cartridge housing is worn. Shut all supply valves and remove cartridge and inspect housing for signs of wear. If wear is visible a new shower valve is needes. If none visible replace cartridge. I have included a link of a PDF file an exploded parts list. I hope this helps in solving your problem. Please rate if the answer helps in any way. Good Luck and have a great week. Jeff

I have moen #3330 shower unit.All is installed but cannot get water to flow. What do I need to do???


First I would check that there is no debris stuck in the valve. In most cases if this is a pressure balanced valve if either the cold or hot water side does not have pressure the valve will not function. When installing the valve was it soldered in? If so was the valve cartridge removed when soldering? Was the valve body flushed after installation before the valve body installed if removed during installation? That model has plastic valve cartridges which are very sensitive to heat and must be removed before soldering.Also the valve body has intergal shut offs make sure that they are turned to the on position for both hot and cold. As I said above being that this is a pressure balanced valve water pressure must be available from both hot and cold. If either hot or cold has less pressure then the other the valve will balance the pressure to be equal, this is to prevent scalding.

How do I adjust my exacttemp shower valve?


Where it suddenly became not hot enough, it's probably not an adjustment. It sounds like the stem needs to be replaced

Moen water flow restricted and only warm


Not sure about your particular valve, but most newer shower valves have an anti-scald limiter that stops the handle from turning too far to the hot water side. Check for a ring or a pin under the handle that can be set in different positions. It will need to be moved clockwise to allow the handle to rotate farther to hot.

Hope that helps. If you have trouble finding it, try looking up a diagram for the valve model.

My Moen exacttemp thermostatic shower goes to either hot or cold - can't figure out how to control the temp. This was just installed and the installer didn't provide instructions.


Your meon shower has a carriage the handle is attached to, sounds like there might be something in it or the carriages is warn and needs replacing.

Moen and all shower valve manufacturers follow american federal guidelines. Hold the unit in your hand with the handle facing you - the left side is the hot water inlet and the right side is the cold water inlet.

From Moen's trouble shooting discussion:

Typical Cause

Debris or an obstruction in the balancing spool is causing it not to move freely within its housing. In some models, a lack of pressure feeding the hot and cold will be the cause. The valve also may need to be calibrated.

Solution

First, verify the hot water system in the home is operational.
Second, it is essential to identify the model of your faucet. Please view our Find Your Product section to determine your model.
For Posi-Temp models:
The 1222 cartridge would need to be replaced and the valve body would need to be flushed and cleaned.
For Moentrol models:
Inspect the 1423 balancing spool. This will appear on the front of the valve body, either to the right or above the cartridge. It will look similar to a large flat head screw, and it will be brass in color. A large flat-bladed screwdriver can be used to unscrew the balancing spool from the valve. There will be a spool inside this piece, and it needs to move freely inside of its shell. If the spool does not move freely, then the 1423 balancing spool will need to be replaced.
For ¾" ExactTemp models:
Note: For ½" ExactTemp valves refer to original service manual
  1. Verify the shut off valves (check stop kit) are in the open position. This will be a screw in the center of the check stop kit. These should be unscrewed counter-clockwise.
  2. Check to see if the hot and cold lines are reversed. If the supply lines are accessible, feel the temperature of the pipes. The cold supply must be connected to the cold (right) side of the valve, and the hot supply must be connected to the hot (left) side of the valve. If this is the case, the valve will need to be reinstalled. Note: The cartridge cannot be reversed to correct this issue.
  3. The cartridge would need to be calibrated. Instructions on calibration can be obtained via the ExactTemp Service Manual in our Literature Center.
Note: When calibrated properly, the ExactTemp valve should provide a range of temperature of 80 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
For ioDigital models:
  1. Verify the shut off valves are in the open position. These will vary depending on your ioDigital model.
  2. Remove the valve inlet screens and inspect for any debris. The water supply will need to be shut off, and then the black nut on the inlets can be unscrewed to remove the inlet screens. Rinse off any debris that may be on these screens and reinstall.
For standard valve models:
  1. Check to see if there are shut off valves installed with the unit. Verify these valves are opened all the way.
  2. The cartridge (for one-handle faucets) or cartridges (for two-handle faucets) would need to be removed (or replaced) and the valve body would need to be flushed and cleaned.
