How To Remove & Replace A Moen Shower Valve Cartridge - Posi Temp Repair




What do you think about this video?

Bob Sagget: Looks like it is a pain in the lower back to remove those cartridges because you have to use a puller and some elbow grease.Watched a dozen of videos with poor plumbers trying all possible ways to get this damn thing out. I am sure that Moen knows that. Maybe it is a time to change the design of the faucet to make it possible to use just common plumber tool for this job? Hello, Moen?

Michael “Moses” Hammer: I liked your Homemade puller trick! That works better than the Plastic ones they sell, that tend to break. Thank you.

Guy inSJ: How come taking out the Moen Cartridge is ALWAYS MUCH HARDER than Delta Cartridge. Why it never fix the problem?

John Steele: Super! Thank you for sharinig.

Barry Baldwin: Thanks so much for this video. Your little trick for creating a home made cartridge puller was just what I needed.

Joseph Lamora: Thanks for posting this video!!!!! Used the 13/16 socket and screw. Was just enough to unseat it(at that point I wiggled it 45 degrees and I finally pulled it out.) Of course the socket broke in two pieces-it was in rough shape...ugh..... and I carefully extracted the rest with needle nose pliers / smoothed the inside gently with steel wool to be sure I didn't mangle it. The new cartridge went in perfectly. Sweet.

Ernesto Garcia: This worked for me. The exact puller you used I had and used myself! I was going to call a plumber but instead like always I attempt to do it myself first to save that dollar and in this case your video absolutely helped a brother out! Thanks for posting this video!

Paul Baril: Thank you so much for posting this well explained video. I ended up making a long plastic sleeve (socket wasn't long enough) with cutouts to clear the plastic nibs and managed to take the cartridge out all the way using your method. I'd like to post a picture of the sleeve but can't seem to find out how to add to my comment. Tks again. Best vid out of four I viewed. Paul

Minh Nguyen: Thanks for this awesome idea! This was the key method in me removing a stubborn cartridge. I used the Danco Cartridge Puller I had to create the leverage, until it came out and then twisted back and forth a few times, then pulled.

mark meldrum: Your problem was not in the shower valve.  The restriction for a shower is in the shower is always in the shower head.  You want the tub to fill up as quickly as possible so a high flowing valve is a good thing.  Showers contain restrictors to limit the amount of water you use while taking a shower.

Bernadett Szeles: That was awesome idea with the socket. Sure saved me a lot of headache! Thanks

hari thummaluru: thanks for ur video.

Ted Soto: Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  I used the screw from the faucet handle a couple nuts for a spacer and a regular sized socket.

David Kim: If you can't use puller, a red hot screwdriver works like a charm.  Cut out top plastic.  Pull out inner metal cylinder.  Then cut out plastic shell left behind.  You can use map gas bottle torch because you want the screwdriver red hot.  Doesn't hurt pipes because you are only heating screwdriver.

Eric Curtright: Thanks......worked perfectly!

Derek Payne: 2 things being that I'm a plumber and have seen a lot. 1 never rebuild just replace it with new it will likely act up again. 2 you got lucky since that valve was new. Many of these are a royal pain to get out and even the tool Moen sells won't help. Most of us have made our own setups which will pull it all the way out not just a lil bit. If the center stem pulls out on you ur really in for a surprise and likely no shower for the day if u don't know what ur doing. Tough cartridges require a socket with bolt setup not a Phillips screw. 

shineg2g: Thank you.. your step by step video helped me. Roto rooter wanted me to replace the faucet and shower. You saved me. I can't thank you enough. Thank you infinite.. 

Dan A: The puller is neat and everything, but vise-grips (carefully tightened to not crush stem) and persistent tapping with a hammer while pulling on the vise-grips will usually get the old cartridge out. Just replaced one in a seldom used bath that had stopped mixing. It would run cold only or hot only when flipped. New cartridge fixed the problem.

Albion Laster: Do tell, what inside that positemp cartridge will mitigate high water pressure.

mystarstudios: Excellent video! I have a leaky Moen faucet and have been vacillating on whether to call a plumber or not. Your video has given me confidence to replace the cartridge myself. I just need to locate the correct replacement cartridge.
