Not sure about your particular valve, but most newer shower valves have an anti-scald limiter that stops the handle from turning too far to the hot water side. Check for a ring or a pin under the handle that can be set in different positions. It will need to be moved clockwise to allow the handle to rotate farther to hot.

Hope that helps. If you have trouble finding it, try looking up a diagram for the valve model.

That was exactly the solution I needed for my Jacuzi bath tub with the two handle faucet. The use of the screw in the top of the cartridge was needed to be able to get a strong enough hold on the cartridge stem. Mine is all recessed about 2 1/2 inches so I grabbed the screw head and stem with long nose pliers, and then clamped down on the pliers with a set of adjustable pliers, and then used a 1/2 block of wood as a lever to get pressure on. That got the cartridge to pop out! Thanks!

You might try a drop of penetrating oil from a car parts store. Ask for their best penetrating oil. Let it sit for about 5 minutes then try to back out hex screw.

First you must determine if your shower faucet is posi-temp or if it has a separate balancing spool. The posi-temp takes a 1222 cartridge and the other type takes a 1225 cartridge. Remove the handle. There is a horse shoe clip which is removed from the top of the cartridge. A cartridge puller is highly reccomended. There are two different kinds. On the brass stem inside the cart. there is a notch. Make note of its position as this determines which side hot and cold are on. Pull the cartridge by twisting back and forth while pulling. Lubricate the inside of the cartridge barrel with faucet grease. No motor oil, vaseline or WD-40! They all eat rubber. Insert cart. and retainer clip. Install handle.

I have moen kitchen faucet # 7560 and water pressure very low. What should I do? We check water flow in pipe it is ok. I changed cartridge as well as pipe nothing help. Please let me know. thanks

Since your question is so vague (is it a shower, tub/shower, lavatory, kit. sink or laundry tub faucet) I'd have to say that the flow restrictor in the aerators or showerhead is clogged up. Just unscrew and remove and either clean aerator or sh.head out and/or remove flow restrictor permanently. If that doesn't work turn off water and disconnect supply tubes from faucet and run them into a bucket and turn water back on to check for volume. If you have plenty of water at supplies then remove faucet and take defective faucet back to where it was bought and get another one!

its not wanting to come out easy but after the retainer clip is removed don't be gentle it will come out good luck

The life span is relevant to the particulate matter in your water. Find dirt (which is normal) damages the o rings. Your description did not specify how the units were failing. You may consider a prefilter, but that is also a maintenance concern. Forntunately, your faucet has lifetime warranty, but that is little help when you need to change the cartridge all of the time.

MAybe a whole house filter, to take out the big chunks...
