Question about Moen 7437 Chateau Single Hole Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray Chrome...

1 Answer

I have a MOEN 4600. The cartridges are plactic. Cold water runs fine but hot water when faucet is put together, only runs for a second then I hear a bit of a clunk then the water only comes out a bit. What the heck am I doing wrong? I have looked at how the cold side is assembled and have copied for the hot but is still not working. Any help would be great. Steve

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.

SOURCE: I have the single handle moen faucet that has the

Monique, I really do not have the real answer to why the acryllic ones break but there are many factors that contribute to it such as torque placed on it at the connection point with the stem and repeatred pushing and pulling on the handle due to normal use. The handles also contain an oil base in them and when that oil dissipates the handle becomes more brittle and less flexible. The other reason is simple physics. The force placed on the handle is all focused at the point where the stem contacts the handle and the screw attaches it to the stem.

As for installing your new faucet the only suggestion i would make is to make sure to use a thread sealant like Rectorseal. It is a paste like substance that comes in a can with a brush attached to the inside of the lid - you do not need alot of this placed on the thread just a thin coat as the directions imply or you will have a mess. Also if you have metal supply lines you may need new ones as the length needed may have bgecome greater. I recommend using the gray poly supplies as they are easy to cut to length.
Other than that it is a real simple process. Just remember the position you want the new pull up handle to be at to stop the sink as you may have it in a position that will not allow total closure.
Thanks for using Fix Ya and good luck.

SOURCE: can't remove moen bathroom faucet assembly to

If you are dealing with the type of Moen faucet I think you are, what you need to do is remove the pop-up rod. do this by loosening the locking bolt on the linkage under the sink and pulling the rod out from the top. Once the rod is out you will need to find the correct size allen wrench which goes into the center hole. there is a mounting bolt in there that needs to be unscrewed. Easy when you know how.

You need to replace the stem. This will not cost you a dime; call MOEN and tell them the issue, with the model number, and they will send the replacement part. Many people don't know that MOEN is guaranteed for life (to the original owner)......another words, say you are the original owner :) They will not ask any questions. Good luck! PS Also works on any MOEN faucets you may have.

Moen kitchen faucet


Hi Steve-If the faucet is definitely getting water (making sure all the cut-off valves are open along the way), the Moen single handle faucets all use a replaceable cartridge that is available at home supply stores. This cartridge is what regulates the pressure and the temperature of the water coming out of your faucet. This is likely faulty. You'll need to close the supply valves (hot and cold) underneath your sink prior to replacing.

With posi-temp cartridges, if one supply of water, hot or cold, is interrupted, the cartridge automatically restricts the flow of the other water source. This is to prevent you from getting scalded if the pressure on the cold side drops because of a toilet being flushed or any other uses of cold water. The cartridge will only allow cold water to flow through if there is hot water to balance it out. If you restore hot water to the faucet, it will operate properly.

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.

We have two showers one works perfect the other only cold water comes out when turned towards hot nothing happens..what is this


Sounds like the anti-scald pressure balancing piece is stuck. This happens if the shower isn't used regularly. A varnish from minerals in the water causes it to stick. You can replace the cartridge or try cleaning this one by soaking it in white vinegar. When the cartridge is clean you should hear it rattle when you shake it. To prevent it from happening again be sure to run the hot and cold water at least once a week. BTW, if you are the original owner of the faucet Moen will send you a new cartridge free.

If you soldered the valve together with the cartridge still inside you may have over heated the plastic and warped something. The balancing spool sounds like it is stuck.

Cold water works, hot does not


your problem can be fixed by running a loop in the plumbing. If you hired a professional in the first place it would already be done. basically the water pressure isn't enough, i bet your faucet is on the second or third floor, or even just THAT far from the water heater.

This needs a new cartridge and may only cost you a couple of bucks at your local plumbing store. If you do this yourself, just make sure you turn off the water to both the cold and the hot and you will probably just need a allen wrench, screw driver and maybe a cresent wrench.
