There are several products that can be used to loosen the corrosion holding the handle in place. The Works is one product along with CLR. The easiest fix is to wrap a washcloth soaked in distilled white vinegar around the handle. Let it soak for 20 minutes at a time. It could take a half dozen times or more, but eventually it will work. Rinse the faucet after each application to remove the acid. You may also need to use this process to remove the Moen faucet cartridge.

Just replaced cartridge in out single handle turn shower handle and now do not get hot enough water. hat could be the problem?


The anti-scald device behind the handle is improperly set. It's the (usually) black ring with 'teeth' on the inside. You obviously misaligned it when during repair. Remove the shower handle, loosen the center stem screw and re-adjust the anti-scald stop device probably ani-clockwise a few notches, then re-tighten the screw and replace the handle.

Temperature regulating faucet, aka anti-scald, are fast becomring a requirement under local building codes making it, technically speaking, a building code violation to alter the faucets function (assuming someone reported it the loccal buildings dept. That said the function of the anti-scald faucet cannot be altered. You should contact whomever installed the faucet to come back and adjust it so the temperature is more suited to your needs.

My Moen Posi-Temp tub valve runs only very cold or very hot. whats wrong?


Your Moen valve is equiped with an anti-scald device (as part of the valve cartridge) which prevents someone from getting scalded by hot water if there's a sudden demand for cold water, i.e. a toilet flush, washing machine filling, etc. Fortunately Moen stands behind their products and will provide a new cartridge.
Contact Moen and describe your problem.

Moen shower/tub faucet


hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

Shower head leaks water when water is turned on


take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.
