Remove the retaining clip and then take a pair of plier or channel locks to grab the stem and work that stem side to side gently as you pull up or out.

I have replaced moen 1225B cartridge and only get cold water no hot water


when installing a new cartridge you need to put stem grease on the o-rings or you are taking a great risk of cutting the o-rings upon installation. doing this will allow the cold water to mix with the hot causing this problem it is quite common for this to happen without the grease

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I have a moen single handle tub and shower faucet took out the clip and pulled but the stem will not come out what esle is holding it


You need to purchase a replacement cartridge before trying to remove a defective Moen cartridge. Always buy genuine Moen. If your valve turns on and off with a pull/push action you need part number 1225B, otherwise you need part number 1222. The 1200 cartridge will work in lieu of the 1225B but is more expensive and no longer used in Moen valves. There is a tool that comes with these cartridges which looks a bit like a white plastic cap.with notches on one end and a square head on the other.
Once the clip has been removed the only thing keeping the cartridge in the vslve is old sticky lubricant. Place the tool over the cartridge end and rotate as necessary until the notches are fully engaged and it no longer rotates. Using pliers or a wrench over the squared end, twist the tool back and forth several times. Remove the tool, and using pliers, pull the old cartridge out. Put the tool on the replacement part and insert it back into the valve. Lightly tap on the squared end to make sure the new part is completely seated, then use the squared end again to turn the cartridge as necessary to align for the clip to be reinstalled.

How do I remove the cartrige from the valve?


Assuming you have a single handle valve, Moen has 2 types of cartridges. The Posi-Temp (replacement cartridge # 1222) turns on and off simply by turning the handle left to right and right to left. The Moentrol (replacement cartridge #1225B) turns on by pulling on it. Handle style does not aid in identification.

Buy your new cartridge before you start and buy genuine Moen! OEM cartridges can give Moen a bad name.

Once the water to the valve is off, remove the handle.

The procedure is the same for either type of valve so use the link below as a reference.

Firmly grab the temperature limit stop and pull it off the valve body. Using pliers, pull out the brass retainer clip. Place the notched end of the white plastic tool that came with your new cartridge onto the old cartridge and rotate as needed until completely seated on cartridge. Put a wrench onto the squared end of the white tool and turn back and forth several times. Remove the tool, grab the brass center of the cartridge with pliers and pull the cartridge out.

Briefly turn the water on ond off to flush the valve of any possible lingering particulate.

Insert new cartridge and use white tool to assure cartridge is all the way in then use the squared end to rotate the cartridge as necessary into an alignment position to reinstall the retainer clip.

When you turn the handle over to the hot side the water will stop coming out. What would cause this problem.


Your control cartridge needs to be replaced. If the water is turned on by pulling on the knob you need Moen service part #1225B. If the water is turned on simply by turning the knob counterclockwise you need serviic part #1222. Try to turn the water on briefly after either cartridge is out to flush any debris that might be still in the body of the valve. Get the cartridge beforehand. the come with a handy removal tool.

Moen Single Handle Shower faucet can't get cylinder out


New moen cartridges for tub/showers come with a handy white plastic tool to aid in old cartridge removal. One end is squared off for a wrench, the other is slotted to place over the old cartridge in the wall after the clip has been removed. Place onto cartridge and use a wrench to turn several times back and forth. Remove , grab the stem with pliers and give a tug. You want either service part #1225B (pull/push to turn on) or #1222 (just turn knob counterclockwise to turn on. Get the replacement before you proceed.

Moen kitchen faucet model 7430 leak


cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.
