Question about Home
You will need to replace the cartridge, along with the handle.
plastic gets brittle over time, but adding a difficult to turn cartridge will cause it to break more frequently.
make sure when you replace the cartridge, to clean everything well. a small wire brush will do, no need to scrub, unless there is a buildup of scale. just a light brushing inside the valve.
clean and dry, then lubricate inside the valve, and the new cartridge with non-silicone based lubricant. this will make your valve work like new.
