Question about Moen Brantford YB2201 Toilet Tank Lever - Chrome

1 Answer

I have a Moen YB2201 brantford toilet lever - but just the chrome handle, and a black plastic round piece with a square hole - I do not have the guts that make the handle make the toilet flush. I called Moen and they said that since they have a limited lifetime warrenty, they don't sell the internal hardware to go with it seperately. The warrenty is for the first owner - not me, so I asked if the parts rust or break, I would have to toss everything out incl. the fancy lever and start over? They said yes. I'm hoping there's a internal parts kit I could buy that I can attach to this handle, or a less expensive handle out there that I can purchase and swap the parts onto my handle. Any creative ideas are appreciated!

How to tighten set screw on Moen brantford shower lever

It sounds like the lever handle adapter may be broken or has become disengaged. . Remove the handle and inspect it. If the adapter is broken, it can be purchased at a plumbing supply house. Neither Home Depot nor Lowes will have it.

Have a moen brantford bathroom faucet. One handle has become very hard to turn. The hot water side turns fine, but you have to use muscle to turn on the cold. Does the handle need to be replaced or the...

It usually takes a special tool to remove a Moen cartridge. Just getting the handle off can be tough. How long have you had this unit? maybe it would be cheaper just to replace the whole thing. My last Moen lasted a good twenty years, still working good, but finally starting to corrode. Good product.

Just purchased the home and the handle on the moen 4551 cp is loose. The handle actually falls off the fixture. There is a plastic grommet or washer that is broken. How do I replace this plastic grommet...

You can find the parts diagram here: . The washer kit is part number 97274. The lever and the hub and elbow that the handle connects to depend on the finish and whether you need the hot or cold side replaced. Levers: 97557 Chrome 97558 Pol. Brass, hub and elbow: Cold 100552 Chrome, 100552P Pol. Brass; Hot 100553 Chrome, 100553P Pol. Brass.

You may be able to find the washer at a local hardware store (like Ace or Tru-Value). Alternatively, call Moen or visit the Moen site. 1-800-BUY-MOEN or to order replacement parts.

You'll have to pay for the washer kit. However, if the hub and elbow or the lever are damaged, call Moen and see if they will replace it under warranty.

I hope this helps.

the reason it doesn' t fit is cause for a toto side mount you need a specific handle for that type of toilet. the universals don't fit that. you can go to a plumbing supply house to get the right handle or you'll have to go on line or contact toto directly.

How do you get the mounting bracket apart from actual holder piece? My holder pulled out from the wall

The technical specifications and installation instruction for your product are available here.

At the base of each post; likey facing down to the floor there should be a small square hole. You will need to insert a small flat screwdriver to release the locking tabs to allow the mount to come free from the mounting post.

You will then likely need to remove the mounting posts from the wall; install new wall anchors (suggest you use toggle mounts designed for sheetrock) and then reattach the mounting posts and then the mounts with the paper holder in place.
