Chim Richalds: the HC goes up unless the water is plumbed backwards, like in my case. lol
Albion Laster: Do tell, what inside that positemp cartridge will mitigate high water
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..
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
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.
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.
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
Humordoor Filo: fouset
Eric Curtright: Thanks......worked perfectly!
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!!
rhqfree: Great video,thanks !
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.
reachengland: I was also stuck trying to get the cartridge out. Great socket idea.
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!
William Venn: If you purchased this new from moen, they will send you a new cartridge
free of charge.
ParagliderCollapse: The spark plug socket for a puller was ingenious!
Eric Schau: Where is this where water pipes are exposed to the weather?
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..
Richard Cowtails: well that's one way to do it lol uy a puller. worth your money lol.
positemp puller , that is lol
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
rusco321: Did that fix the problem?
Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
