Very difficult to pull faucet handle out to turn on in shower installation


the cartridge heeds to be replaced. It sounds like you have a moen shower valve. turning the stem on this cartridge will only reverse hot and cold. it will not fix your problem.

I have a single handle Moen shower faucet. Pull to turn on. Turn clockwise for cold. Turn counterclockwise for hot. It does not leak but it is hard as hell to pull out when I turn it on. The house was...


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.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer

The moen shower pullout type hot/cold valve will not slide out of the main valve body even after the retainer clip has been removed. I found some corrosion on the retainer clip and I have sprayed the area...


Howdy, those can be like pulling teeth. The wd40 will not help that much as it is not a robust solvent. I suggest letting some liquid wrench sit overnight on it and then pulling real hard. Good luck:)

Moen one handle tub & shower is leaking from spigit


A stem is a cartridge in a real old valve. You have pulled retainer clip, you can try to pull it out with pliers, but you might need a moen cartrigde puller.

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.
