Doesn't Moen have a "lifetime" warranty?

Moen single handle faucet


a picture would sure help. usually there is a set screw under something, possibly a plastic insert with the word "moen" on it.

On mine, the set screw is under the "Hot/Cold" indicator.

is it a push pull or does it turn? if a push pull you need to pop the center cap off of the handle to get to the screw. did you read the instructions that came with the new cartridge?

Moen single handle faucet


Ok everyone...thanks for the responses re: my faucet. The problem was that the set screw broke in half when we tried to unscrew it to take the handle off. Guess maybe the plumber (unknown) who installed it is Bullwinkle and didn't know his own strength. Reordered the 3 parts to the tune of $122.57......maybe I will have a functional kitchen sink tomorrow (YAY!!!)

At that price I sure would have just replaced the whole thing and be using the water tonight not tomorrow.
