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...

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.

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!

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.

Always good to buy OEM, but this style tends to break more than the 1225(you can't just use the 1225. Gotta stick with what your valve is made for). Often times this will get stuck and you'll need a puller. the $13 puller will help after using the white piece that this package comes with to help loosen it. When putting it back in, I'd use a lot of the oil from the packet it comes with, or use your own 100% plumber's silicone grease. Make sure it's the right one made for stems and cartridges!! Some "plumber's grease" aren't made for rubber and it'll tighten up/dry out the rubber. This will help you put it in smoothly and remove it smoothly next time. The little packet that came with this was super watery and didn't do much. Step 1. remove handles, screws, plate, etc. Step 2. Shut off water and open faucets to drain water. Step 3. Remove clip on top Step 4. Wiggle the cartridge out. If tight, use the white adapter to try to loosen it. If it doesn't work, use a puller. Step 5. Once removed, check for broken pieces and check inside the valve to see if anything is stuck. Run your finger around and feel for sharp edges. Step 6. Add 100% silicone grease to the cartridge and slide in with the "HC" pointed up. insert it all the way and install clip. Step 7. Put everything back and test for leaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best faucet and the state made it worse. I had problems with temp control so I replaced the cartridge with a Moen cartridge. My water pressure was cut in half. When I returned it I was told that the state had made the manufacturer put a flow reducer in it to save water. I bought a Partsmaster cartridge hoping it would be better and it was but not much and I still had temp control issues. I finally bought a cartridge repair kit and rebuilt my original cartridge and it works OK, good pressure and better temp control. The only problem I noticed with it is that you have to be very careful with the O rings on re-assembly or they can get torn.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I replaced two shower valves with these Moen products. ... I replaced two shower valves with these Moen products. I did so because the replacement cartridges are readily available and are relatively easy to install. It's really a huge problem to shut off the house water and then not be able to find a replacement part because the manufacturer went out of business decades ago. So, go with MOEN on these valves. You will thank the Lord that you did so in the future when a plumber is not needed. Replacement is DIY.
