Faucet Handle Sticking

I recently replaced the catridge on single handle Moen faucet. However, the handle is now hard to pull out - it got worse slowly over time after I put the new cartridge in. I'd best describe it as sticking - it takes a fair amount of effort to pull out the handle and turn the water on. Is there something I need to grease, did I get a bad cartridge? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Try a new cardridge again. Call 1-800 Buy-Moen, they will send you one free.

Put FDA approved food grease on the o-rings on the cartridge and on all threaded parts in the assembly for easy movement on the handle.
