Shower valve jammed


plumbing problem
I am dealing with a Stanadyne/Moen tub/shower valve that is jammed. I can't pull it out to turn on and it will not rotate left or right. Can this condition be fixed by replacing the cartridge? or is it a complete valve replacement?

Should be a cartridge will fix that--be sure to use a Moen cartridge pulling tool--

clean and polish the inside of the valve body before installing the new cartridge.---Mike----
