Single Handle Shower Faucet is Getting Stiff


We had our bathrooms renovated less than a year ago. Our Moen single handle shower faucet has gotten stiff to turn and it makes a vibrating sound when doing so. How do I fix this?

You need to replace the cartridge---turn off the water to the house and drain the piping.

Remove handle--lift out the brass retaining clip--attach a Moen pulling tool--remove old cartridge.

Clean the inside of the valve body with some fine sand paper,rolled around a pencil--
flush out the valve to remove and sanding grit--

Lubricate the new cartridge--install--replace the clip--
