Dorothy Jean Thompson: Thank you sooo much! All 3 of our bathroom faucet's were leaking unless we
turned the hot water off, and would have to turn it back on EVERY time we
needed to use it, very annoying. Did that for the last few months till I
came across your video! We found generic ones at Home Depot for $15 each.
Almost bought new faucet's so I'm glad I seen your video. Saved me a bunch
Frank Corral: Thanks for the video. Not a single step was missed. Did exactly what you
said and in 8mins my sink stopped dripping. We even have hot water now! I
bought the plastic 1225 at Home Depot for $20. Thanks again.
Taru Tiwari: Very helpful video, wouldn't have been able to figure out a thing without
this video. Thank you.
Randy Lewis: Fantastic video. Thanks so much for outlining things so easily.
Uchiba Uki: I install the new faucet but it's leak after we install it ! Brand new
faucet but dripping water !!
Bilal: Thank you for this video, it was very helpful. I have a different model and
putting the lever back was little challenging but eventually I did it. One
minor mistake, I have placed the cartridge in reverse and swap hot and
cold, oh well 😊
David Forman: Very helpful. Thank you.
moh raqib: Thank u kind sir, you saved me a hell lot of water waste and the earth. God
Rick Smith: I went to home depot today. They sell the tool for removing a Moen
cartridge. It sells for $13. It works like a gear puller.
Matt Goodrum: Thanks for posting this video. The descriptions online led me to believe I
had a ball-type faucet, but your video shows I clearly have one of these
exact same cartridge types. Ordering the part I need once I dismantle it
and find out. P.S. I didn't think to remove the logo to find the screw
Bo Schinski: Thanks so much, man, for your public service here!
Ricardo Rivera: can you get away by just replacing the O rings ?
Joseph Ochoa: I pulled my cartridge out with a pliers. It took a couple of good pulls,
but I had no trouble at all:)
Jennifer Morrow: thanks so much. this really helped!
Dan Hantack: Great video thank you very much.
uublr: Thank you! Perfect instructions, Drip now entirely gone! :-)
Glenn Drysdale: This is really good; I have this same setup. However, as one other person
said, the screw keeps spinning and won't come out. It may well have been
stripped when it was installed, no clue. Long nosed pliers won't get it out
either--can't get them on it well enough. I guess my only recourse is to
pull the entire faucet and take it to a Moen place? Any ideas welcomed ;o)
Considering drilling out the screw...
Doug Crew: I got to the part where you pull the cartridge out but the cartridge won't
pull out for anything. I tried turning it a little less or a little more
than 90 degrees but to no avail. Any ideas what could be going on?
jimsxray: You forgot to show the grey plastic collar being unscrewed. Otherwise good
Rick Smith: This video is very misleading. You CAN NOT pull out the old cartridge with
a pair of pliers. I struggled for awhile and called my plumber. He said you
must have a special tool to remove the cartridge. He added that the video
must have been using a brand new faucet.
Stephen McCoy: Thanks for the video! Big time helpful.
Rick Smith: Don - yes, he did have the tool. Since I was paying him by the hour I had
him install a new faucet. I'll bet you can get that tool at any hardware
store that sells Moen faucets.
Jean Boyd: Excellent presentation. No more dripping faucet!
Heavyboxes: You are a lifesaver!¡! Actually you're a human being that saved my life.
Actually you saved me the cost of a new faucet. At least you saved
salomon moreno: Thanks alot
Costas Ikonomopoulos: Thank you so much for sharing!
Tanya Martinez: This was a lifesaver!!! I was going to just replace the faucet, but now for
20 dollars for the stem and 2 dollars for the hex wrench set, I am good to
go!! So easy to follow your directions and I did pause, run to perform the
step and come back and see the next.. Although as a woman, it was a bit of
a struggle to pull the stem!! I just slid a cross top in the little opening
on the side and levered it up and out.. I didn't end up with extra pieces
or the faucet not looking the same as when I started. I will be looking
for your videos whenever I need to work on another project Thank you so
much for this help.!!
DebbieStar: Excellent video, thanks for sharing. I was able to follow along step by
step and it worked perfectly. It saved me from buying a new faucet.
Shannon Harder: Thanks for posting this, it helped me choose the right cartridge. BTW most
hardware or plumbing supply stores will give you the replacement Moen
cartridge for free if you give them the faulty one because they have a
Dan R: Thanks for sharing, Great Video! When I try to take out the Phillips screw
it just keeps on spinning counter clockwise and doesn't come out. Is
there a trick to getting the Phillips screw out? Thanks!
Robert Choi: Hello, I cannot get the grey collar loose. I don't know if there is a build
up of minerals causing it. How did you get is loose ?
leo5208: After shutting off the water the next step should be to close the drain so
you won't lose the logo cap, screws, or clip!
AsianStore1: the dark grey plastic ring wont come off.. its literally stuck on there..
what do i do?
KING KRUSH: I'm not handy at all. But after watching this great upload of yours, I'm
going to attempt this next time I have a leak. I'll let you know what
happens when I do. Thanks for this video.
Amy Hardee: Excellent info! It helped me fix my sister's bathroom sink leak. It was the
same one as yours. Thanks for sharing!!!! Later, Joel.
DIY Tinker: Moen's website says you have to have the original receipt in order to get a
replacement. Was that the same case for you?
rmpaws: I have found that the grey collar being loose will cause a leak and
tightening it will fix the leak without replacing the cartridge.
Bill McElroy: Hmmm...I took the hex screw out entirely and cannot get the handle off of
the stem to get to the cartridge. What am I missing?
James Froese: Never had to bring in a receipt, just brought the old cartridge back after
I had put in the new one. I guess its up to the local hardware store to
make that decision, maybe it's different in the US.
bdp6740: Thanks so much for posting this. Im removal and installation was quick and
easy. I am not handy at all and this was a breeze. Thanks again!
DIY Tinker: you are welcome, and you are a good brother my friend.
James Froese: I do maintenance on 13 homes and when I have to replace a moen cartridge I
just go to the local lumber yard that sells the moen line and get a
replacement for free, all I have to do is bring back the old one. It was
the lumber store that pointed it out to me.
Mysppower: Thank you! I was able to change the catridge by following your video.
Adam Sorensen: Thanks. Went exactly as described. You saved me a new faucet, which I would
have bought instead of trying to figure this out on my own. Cheers
DIY Tinker: good advice. thx!
James Froese: Moen carries a life time warranty and you should never pay for the
cartridge, Moen is happy to replace the cartrige for free.
Brian Eastwood: Mine was the same I did recently, felt like pulling the sink out if I
lifted too hard. haha. I just got the grip on it and moved it round a
little and applied a little force up and down and it slipped out. great vid
thanks.. it's easy when your see how it goes together and it's not going to
spring all over the room when you take a clip out. :)
LuvdCaps: The little metal washer needed to be placed under the white plastic piece,
not over it. The instructions with the cartridge also show to do it that
way. When I turned on the water, after putting in the cartridge and putting
all the parts back in place, the hot and cold were reversed. I had to take
everything apart again (easier the second time) and reverse the cartridge.
Then it worked fine. The install went very well and I saved a lot of money
by not having to call a plumber. Thanks!
