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.
ParagliderCollapse: The spark plug socket for a puller was ingenious!
Chim Richalds: the HC goes up unless the water is plumbed backwards, like in my case. lol
rhqfree: Great video,thanks !
reachengland: I was also stuck trying to get the cartridge out. Great socket idea.
William Venn: If you purchased this new from moen, they will send you a new cartridge
free of charge.
Eric Schau: Where is this where water pipes are exposed to the weather?
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!
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!!
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
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.
Sonny Lee: Nice work! Did that Midigate the problem?
Thea Alyssa: super, thanks
Jennies Garage: It turns out the shower head was the reason the pressure was going crazy.
Oh well, at least I got to see what the inside of one of those valves looks
Jennies Garage: Glad to help out, thanks!
Jennies Garage: Low pressure can be a bother too. Is it too much to ask to have a nice
brisk stream that is strong enough to be invigorating, but not so violent
that it bruises?!
jpmsteffen: Dude, this is a great helpful tip. Solved my problem. Thanks!!!
Sunil S: Disconnect the shower head and turn the water on to see if there is a
difference in water pressure. There may be build up inside the shower head.
If that doesn't resolve the issue, then you may have to change the shower
Jennies Garage: Glad you enjoyed the video!
emadr1: Great! Thank you for the video!!!
Jennies Garage: Thanks for checking in, glad you got it fixed!
Jorge Cesar d Oliveira Marinho d Araujo: Best video!
Elle Robert: Thank you so much for this video! Very helpful. My cartridge is leaking, do
you think replacing the whole cartridge is necessary, or just the O ring? I
understand you can't really diagnose it over the internet, I just don't
want to replace the whole thing if I don't have to!
Laura Kangas: Thanks for the video! I now know enough to know I won't tackle it myself,
but I also know enough not to get scammed on a quote. So thanks!
Jennies Garage: It's hard to say, but usually if the oring is bad, you'll be able to tell
by doing a good visual inspection. Look for cracks, irregularities or
tears. Good luck!
Jennies Garage: Thank you!
Jennies Garage: An educated customer is a dishonest serviceman's worst nightmare!
Jennies Garage: Happy to help out, thanks!
TheNakedAtheist: OK, now that you've completed that come to my house where I have the
opposite problem. :p
phoenixllh: Really good help with the homemade cartridge puller.
rusco321: Did that fix the problem?
