SOURCE: Moen One-Handle Kitchen Faucet Leak - Hot Only

http://www.moen.com/browsecatalog/catalog/specpartsearch.cfm?location=TopNavCustomerSupport

Moen uses a cartridge on their faucets. You have to remove the handle. You will find the stem and a small U shaped retainer. Pull the retainer out and pull the cargridge straight up. Sometimes the cartridge is in there pretty tight and you have to pull hard. Once you do this, take the cartridge to your local hardware store. Replace it with the one you have because they have 2 different one. Install it back in the same order it was removed. Hope this helps and good luck.

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

SOURCE: I am installing the valve housing for a moen

No...the (cotter pin) is a retaining piece for the cartridge. If you remove it the cartridge can blow out under pressure.

How do you tighten the handle on Moen 7594E


There is a plastic button on the bell of the handle right by the base of the lever. It might be blue and red for hot and cold or it may be the same finish as the faucet. Remove the plug and tighten the allen screw. It takes a 3/32" allen key. If this doesn't tighten it adequately, you must remove the handle, and gently tighten the plastic retaining nut with an adjustable wrench or a channel lock pliers. The adj wrench is recommended over the pliers.

Allen wrenches are sold in sets and not expensive. Moens are not metric so any set of small SAE allen wrenches will contain the right size for your Moen.

MOEN Motionsense Faucet Leaking????

Turn off the water valves beneath the sink. Cover the openings to both the drain and the garbage disposal. Use an allen wrench to remove the tiny screw holding the handle in place. Once the handle is removed, the leaking is most likely from the seams around the large plastic nut behind the metal-like plastic cover. You might be able to see water dripping from around the big nut. Remove the nut and wrap nylon plumber's tape (Costs probably around a buck at any hardware supply store) around the threads for a much better seal. Wrap the tape tight at least a couple of times around the threads.
Screw the nut back into place with your hand, then tighten with a wrench.

Place the cover back over the assembly, install the handle. You can apply clear nail polish on the threads of the tiny allen screw that holds the handle in place to minimize the risk of it coming loose and falling into your garbage disposal.

Should be coming out if head not stripped or threads inside at set screw aren't stripped. Can you tell at all with perhaps flashlight if set screw is turning at all? Look like it backing out?

My handle is loose but I cannot find a tool that will fit the set screw. What is it, what size. Blade screw, Phillips Screw, Hex, torx, what? Moen T2442 single handle shower diverter.


It would be an allen wrench. Any typical multi sized wrench should have the proper sized allen wrench.

The holes can often become filled with grime so be sure to seat the wrench properly to prevent stripping.

Moen Posi-Temp Shower Handle removal


I hate to say this but maybe the inside of the allen screw has been rounded out by a previous worker. You can drill the screw out and replace the handle with a new one. NOTE: Moen replacement parts are not cheap!

Moen single handle shower faucet, contstanly drips


Moen single handle - push pull has a screw beneath the handle cover plate. The Moen single lever handle has an allen wrench screw located under the curve of the handle. Once either one of these screws are removed, the handle should come off easily.
Once the handle is off, the water must be turned off and then you can remove the cartridge. Some cartridges are difficult to remove and may require a special tool. Most new cartridge packages have information on them to explain how to remove the cartridge.

Handle Removal on Chateau Style Bathroom Taps


the handle removal is a metric allen wrench some of the cartridge replacements come with an allen head wrench

I always plug the drains and completely remove the allen head screw then the handle comes off
Sometimes you have to pry it gently or take a hammer wrap a towel around the handle where it meets tthe cartridge base and tap up under the handle lightly and it comes out

God Luck
