Flying off the handle with Moen

5 Jan

Here’s fix for a vexing problem with older Moen single handle faucets. There is a small plastic transition piece that connects the handle to the cartridge. When this piece breaks the handle comes off. It’s not a difficult fix but you will have to get the replacement part form a plumbing supply house or from Moen it’s not available at your big box store. If you order one ahead of time you’ll be ready for the eventual. If not you can operate the faucet with a pliers while you wait for delivery. In either case you don’t have fly off the handle and throw the faucet away.
