HOT water on bathtub faucet not working??


In our bathtub if you turn the faucet to HOT the water shuts off...the cold runs fine but as soon as you turn past 1/2 way it shuts off....here is a video of what it is doing.

seem like either a valve is shut off..or the cartridge on the faucet may be clogged or defective...

leverage is key ..I grip with vise grips then wedge against opening to pry out...be careful not to damage anything...if unsure home depot or lowes sells puller 10.00-15.00 dollars...

I have not done alot of work on moen but I think i would buy a cartridge while there can always return it ....would help if you had model ...take a good look at cartridge before you go ... its about 4" long...

Sounds like a good way to pull the stem right out the center of it,save yourself a lot of headaches and just buy a puller for it

Did you run the screw all the way out on the puller and crank the nut all the way back on puller before seating it against the cartridge?
they can be a pain sometimes if theyre stuck in there,the older brass ones can really suck sometimes!
