Questions & Answers

The old valve is stuck, how do I get the old valve out?

Asked by: Brent
I used vise grip pliers, got a good bite and pulled it right out. Dont forget to pull the pin before tugging on the cartridge.

Does this cartridge come with the clip that holds it in the body of the valve?

Asked by: Spud
No. You have to buy it separate. I just used my old one though. If you're careful about getting the old one off, it works just fine.

does the new cartridge come with the plastic removal device

Asked by: ru4racn
It comes with a plastic to be able to turn the cartridge. There is a tool to help you remove it though...

Before buying this $40 item (as of March 2017), you would be wise to check with Moen since they have a lifetime drip-free guarantee. My 1 yr old shower faucet started dripping, but by a week was flowing so fast (hot water) that I had to shut of hot water to bathroom. I was able to receive a replacement cartridge free of charge after contacting Moen via their website. They had great, fast service (still took about another week, though, to get it - so act fast if you are in need of your shower and water won't shut off!) I ended up returning the one I purchased from Home Depot without a problem, of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, tough to get the old one out My old moen cartridge 1222 would only come out part way but i managed to get it out by keep squirting white vinegar (Moen's suggestion) onto the cartridge and workng the cartridge in and out many times, gripping first the brass shaft and then the cartridge itself with vice grips. When it finally came out after 10 minutes one of the rubber ovals had slipped off and the plastic back end of the cartridge was cracked so that was why it was so hard to get out. I read in another post that the cartridge puller only pulls the cartridge partly out so i didnt even buy one since the problem was getting the last three quarters out. I reassembled the faucet and its workng fine.

It had a piece of wood that probably got in there when the builders built our house. It worked perfectly. There are some good videos on youtube that show exactly how to install one of these. Don't forget to use the lubricant that comes with it to help the new valve go in. We used the cartridge puller from Home Depot too and that worked well. Be prepared with the possibility that you'll have to replace the escutcheon plate and handle. We found that the O-ring in the escutcheon plate was dissolved.

I am not a handy man, but I am intelligent enough to know when to call in a professional and when to do it myself. The constant dripping from the shower head after turning it off seemed to me like a do it yourself job. Watched a few videos on how to do it, bought this part from The Home Depot, and set about replacing my faulty cartridge. Easy to pull out the old one, push in this new one. Using the included lubricant, the shower handle turns even easier now than before, and the leak is gone. Easy choice to make, swapping out the existing cartridge for a new one to stop the small leak.

I think my plumbers put it in wrong 2 years ago when I had them install my new shower head with some plumbing work. It was always stiff. Finally had a problem where it wouldn't shut off the water without working the handle a few times (felt like it was stripped and slipping). I figured it was the handle or the valve, cause I figured the cartridge would just cause leaking or blockage. Nope, replaced the cartridge (as instructions stated) and now it works flawlessly. The handle turns like butter, and shutoff and on are precise. Only tip is to make sure you pay attention to instructions for install. I bought the removal tool to go with it, more for peace of mind, and everything went smoothly. Probably can replace it easily without the tool, but I'm not a handy man and typically screw things up worse than how I find them, so bought the tool for piece of mind. No problems whatsoever and took me (once again, not a handy man) about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Our plumber put in a new shower handle cartridge (because of a leak) and it turns out to have been an NON original part. We lost 60 percent of the water pressure.... he kept saying it was fine and it was far from it. Ask you plumber if he uses OEM parts. I called MOEN & they sent a FREE cartridge (#1222) THAT SOLVED the problem. I now keep a spare MOEN BRAND on hand. Not going through not being able to rinse the soap/shampoo off/out! Glad HomeDepot is near by!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Had a problem in my 15+ year old shower where no cold water would come out after I turned the handle a certain amount. This cartridge is well worth the money. Had difficulty taking off the old one but once I cleaned the area and put this new one in it worked like new. Definitely something you want to try before calling a plumber.

Every spring it craps out. Easy fix but its $40 each time. I recommend it because its easy and I have no choice... but the fact that I have to replace it every year says something.
