Answer

Hello MikeF and thank you for your interest in Moen products. Moen shower faucets manufactured today are pressure balanced to maintain the temperature within 2-3 degrees. If your Moen shower has a single handle that pulls out and no balancing spool, then your shower faucet does not have the pressure-balancing feature. Replacing the cartridge may resolve the issue that you are experiencing. More information is needed to properly troubleshoot the issue. If you have additional questions, please feel free to call us at 800-289-6636. Our business hours are 9:00 am - 5:30 pm Monday through Friday (EST).

This was a waste for me. After replacing the o-rings I could not get the stem back in the sleeve without damaging them or having them pull out of position. I replaced the cartridge and it went fine. I have replaced two of them in my home, one shower and one tub/shower. The hardest part in both cases was getting the old cartridge out, they were locked in by scale. I will just buy the new cartridge for any future replacement. It is money well spent for me. The removal tool is also helpful. I used my original tool the second time but it is rather trashed so I will get another one for future changes. Mine were hard to change as they went too long. The shower was heavily used, the tub/shower almost never (the hot water side scaled up). It will help if you pull the cartridge and grease it every couple of years (outside the cartridge where it goes in the valve body). Good luck.

How do you get the parts out?

Asked by Anthony March 31, 2018

Answers

I have replaced two. Getting the old one out was by far the hardest part as they get locked in by scale. I used the removal tool but it was very difficult. I slowly turned it while pulling it out. As it started to move I sprayed WD40 in it to help loosen it. As it slowly worked out, turning it with constant outward pressure, it got easier, until it finally pulled out. I will pull and grease it every couple of years to help avoid this. One unit was almost never used but the hot water side scaled up. The other was heavily used. Time seemed to be the factor that mattered. I had no luck with this kit, I ended up replacing the cartridge. I will do this in future. Good luck.

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Unfortunately, do to the nature of the material, this item cannot be shipped to Hawaii. However, you may be able to find a similar model in the local store in Hawaii.

Hello Jim and thank you for the feedback you posted on the Home Depot website. We are sorry to hear of the difficulty you experienced when trying to re-install a newly repaired cartridge. Prior to installing the newly repaired cartridge, we suggest cleaning and flushing the valve body. Cleaning and flushing the valve are recommended especially when a cartridge has been in-service for a long time and when water conditions are hard or high in mineral content. This extra step will help to ensure the newly repaired cartridge can be installed without causing damage to the grommets and o-rings included in the Moen Posi-Temp 1 Handle Tub/Shower Cartridge Repair Kit. For installation, repair or warranty assistance, please contact us at 1-800-289-6636. We are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 7:00 pm Eastern Time.
