Open Question

I have a Moen bathroom tap handle #109117 S-3B. the screw has released from the handle head and I want to kow how to re fix it in. Can the cerated plastic base containing the screw simply be pulled out of the tap base and if yes then how? Must the house water be turned off before hand? thanks for your help. Dennis

SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

How to remove thet trim on a t6520 bathroom faucet handle?


Most moen handles and trim are secured by an allen set screw located right under the handle by looking at the picture you supplied. Once the set screw is loosened the handle can be removed and then the deck escheon usually screws off. Most of the time you do not need to remove the deck cover to get to the valve cartridge.

Stuck allen screw in moen shower handle


If you have a acid rust and calcium remover such as "Lime-Away" or CLR. these may be strong enough to break the rust (the set screw is probably steel) or collected lime holding the threads fast.
Some tile/bathroom cleansers also contain mild acids also.

Position the handle so a drop or two stay in or, if it disappears, soak a cotton swab in the solution and press it into the screw head.

I don't think I would leave either of the commercial products in overnight unless a few hours of soaking doesn't help.

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

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
