Question about Moen & Replacement Cartridge

1 Answer

I just replaced the cartridge in a Moen single handle faucet which was leaking. Now when I push the handle down to turn off the water it pushes back out and a small stream of water continues to run. If I put some pressure on the handle the water will shut back off, but as soon as I let go the stream resumes.

    It may just be that you need a new cartridge. If you can replace cartridge without to much problem I would do that. Depending on your water quality the cartridge may be very hard to remove on a faucet that old. Also if the handle actuating hole is worn very much you may have to replace it also. By the time you buy parts you may have half or more of the price of new faucet, I would recommend that you replace faucet. Hope this helps. Thanks

    If it is hard to pull out or push in the valve then you will need to replace it. On moen valves you can not rebuild the cartridge you can only replace them. A new cartridge will cost you around 15 to 20 dollars.

    Also I would tack the cartridge with you when you gao and buy it because they make 2 different ones.

    The old MOEN single handle faucets like youve described usualy took a 1200 or 1225 cartridge. Both are available at most of your big home improvement stores. The answer to your question is yes MOEN parts are still avail. Hope this helps. If this advise is helpful, please give me a vote.
