Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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: Anonymous
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...

The previous cartridge (Moen #1222) had to be replaced within 11 months (within warranty period). Had to buy the replacement as the leak was approximately 1 gallon per hour. Moen would only replace the defective cartridge with a new one, not credit me for the cost of the replacement (@ $40 plus tax). So - its better to waste 24 gallons a day for however many days it would take to receive the replacement than just issue a credit. I have both receipts to prove the purchases but they didn't care. Will not be buying Moen products of any sort in the future.

I had to replace this cartridge about 3 years ago, because my wife turned it off a little too forcefully. This time, it seemed that the cartridge was clogged, but after inspecting the old cartridge, I couldn't find what was restricting the flow. $60 dollars (with a special tool) later, I have somewhat (but not much) better flow. My house has decent water pressure, but this shower does not, and there seemingly is no way to increase it. If I had my druthers, I would ditch the Moen brand all togethere, but the plumbing that is installed IS NOT COMPATIBLE with any other brand. So, if I want better pressure in my shower, I will have to tear out the wall, and the pipes to braze a different valve body in. I had to buy the Moen core puller as not to damage the pipes like I almost did before. I'm not a big fan of requiring special tools in the name of proprietary profit. And I would probably be more forgiving if they didn't charge $43 for a $5 part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough out, easy in Go online to find all the ways to get the old cartridge out--you'll need 'em. Key is to rotate left/right to loosen. But once the old out, the new goes in w/out hassle and, for me at least, worked like a charm. Relieved to find leak/drip had not eroded a channel in the base metal.

Bought this replacement and it worked fine but after 4 month, its leaking again. Moen is the worst brand you can buy. Probably will pay a plumber to replace the it and change it to a two handle faucet.

This replacement cartridge installed easily and has performed well to date. The previous cartridge was the original one and had been in service and dripping for many years. The supplied nut to remove the existing cartridge is a must have. The old rubber seals had deteriorated to the point where they folded up and nearly prevented me from being able to remove the old cartridge. My best advice to those looking to replace is do not give up on the removal of the old cartridge. That is the hardest part of this job. Once you have the old cartridge removed, the additional clean out and installation of the new cartridge will go very quickly.

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.

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.
