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




What do you think about this video?

William Weitzel: Danco makes a cartridge removal tool after you've pulled out the stem. You can buy for $10 or rent for $5 from ACE. 

Laura S: New Subscriber! Your video was just what the Dr. ordered. My husband tried to pry out the cartridge doing a make shift puller similar to what you made, but our house is 25 years old and that sucker was a bear to get out. Had to go to Depot and pay the 13 bucks for a puller! Bought the slicone grease and now we are good to go! Thanks a lot!!

Carey Elliott: Thanks for the direction, my valve was stuck from the hard water. I used your socket setup to pull the valve, it worked great !!!!

Don Estberg: Get video. The spark plug socket puller worked for me after the plastic puller that came with the cartridge broke. Thanks!!

Hermann Eisenberg: Thank you.

Humordoor Filo: fouset

Micah Titan: Excellent video, to the point yet very informative and presented several very useful tips. Thanks for making this video, you just saved me an absurdly expensive plumber bill.

rhqfree: Great video,thanks !

reachengland: I was also stuck trying to get the cartridge out. Great socket idea.

ParagliderCollapse: The spark plug socket for a puller was ingenious!

Fran Pickett: Another happy viewer! The shaking of the cartridge was the key. When ours didn't shake, we knew there was a problem. Careful cleaning did the trick! Now we have hot water again!

Eric Schau: Where is this where water pipes are exposed to the weather?

Richard Cowtails: well that's one way to do it lol uy a puller. worth your money lol. positemp puller , that is lol

Robert Lilly: Well done!! One of the most informative and detailed video I've seen for a Do-It-Yourself project. Thank you!!

Chim Richalds: the HC goes up unless the water is plumbed backwards, like in my case. lol

William Venn: If you purchased this new from moen, they will send you a new cartridge free of charge.

diver dave: ! i also like your home made puller ...

Rhy H: Very informative yes but why did you have to pull apart your valve for high pressure? Buy a low pressure shower head or if you consistently have high pressure thought out your house add in a PRV "pressure relief valve" where your main shut off is "yours being outside the house".

drumslapper: Thanks for the tip. My 10-12 year old unit didn't want to come out and the little plastic tool was usless. The socket puller did the trick. The older units had a different tap handle thread so had to use a bolt from a new faucet. TIP. Every three years take the unit out and replace... defect ive or not. Makes it easier to remove and the cartridges are free..

Tim Lawler: thanks a lot! I could not have done it without your video, as I had distorted the clip, and it would not go in. I took another look at the video, saw the shape of the clip, rejiggered it, and it worked. Hallelujah, now my brother who arrives in a couple hours can get a hot shower. Muchas Gratias!

Lux: Just a word of caution. While you can use the faceplate bolt to pull the cartridge, they are in fact not the same bolts. The faceplate bolt (at least on my faucet which looks identical to this one) is a #10 32 (fine thread) bolt while the cartridge bolt is a #10 24 (coarser thread). You can force the faceplate bolt in but you run the risk of stripping the interior threading on the cartridge; not a problem if you plan to replace it, but something to be aware of. A 2 1/2 to 3 inch #10 24 bolt is the best length to use to pull the cartridge.

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
