  • Moen mixing valve for shower

    Just replaced valve with the Lasco Posi-temp cartridge, and ther is no mix. It just goes from cold to hot. Does anyone know why?

    it's hard to be certain, but to fix what I think you're describing, try this.

    1> Remove the handle, and limit devices (the white plastic parts).

    2> CAREFULLY turn the brass stem 180 degrees. This part is brass, try not to chew it up with pliers etc.

    3> reinstall the handle and limit device

    4> come back to the Ridgid forum, and let us know if the problem was fixed

    We always like pictures too

      sounds like the cartridge is 180 degrees off. remove the handle and rotate the stem 1/2 turn= 180 degrees and test it again.

      the normal is the little notch on the flat brass handle should be on top.

      normal is cold to hot

      phoebe it is

        Lasco Posi-temp?

        Does that mean the cartridge is not a Moen OEM part?
