SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: replace new moen 1200 stem, still leaks due to scratches housing

The proper fix for this is to hone out the scratches

take steel wool and wrap it around a dowel or piece of wood or ust stuff it into the housing and turn back and forth to smoth out the scratch

if the scratch is real dep you wll have to go to harbor freight and get a honing tol that fits on the end of a drill

the stem should have some type of crown washer that you should be able to get an assortment from lowes , ace or hd

If you are asing for a recommendation for a good silicone I always use GE silicone it is the best

as a last resort (if nothing else works to stop leak

I would take cartridge wall and streatch teflon tape as tight and smooth as possible to block water coming up between housing and
cartrideg this is not recomended by mfg just a spa (my initials) certified suggestion

Good luck

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.

He showed me the rubber gasket( that holds the ball) to purchase as well as recommended that the 2 small rubber gaskets that were in there to be replaced as well while I had it open to avoid doing this in the future.

Moen and all shower valve manufacturers follow american federal guidelines. Hold the unit in your hand with the handle facing you - the left side is the hot water inlet and the right side is the cold water inlet.

Howdy, those can be like pulling teeth. The wd40 will not help that much as it is not a robust solvent. I suggest letting some liquid wrench sit overnight on it and then pulling real hard. Good luck:)

My moen model 3175 is leaking. What is the likely cause and how do I repair?


The cartridge is absolutely the culprit. Very good shower valve, however the cartridges do go. Shut the water, take the handle off, disassemble the face plate, remove chrome collar from body, remove retention split spring, pull cartridge itself straight out. Replace new cartridge in reverse order of removal. Cartridge can be found at home depot, or any plumbing supply store. Good Luck,
Steven

Decreased water flow from Moen shower faucet


I would bet it's not the faucet at all, it's the showerhead. Remove it and look inside the hole, there is probably sediment built up in there.
Just clean it out and reinstall.

Moen Bath Tub Faucet


Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
