We have a six yr old home and hardly ever use the shower/tub in the upstairs hall. I run the water about once a month just to rinse any dust off of the tub...Last night I went in and turned on the moen faucet and as I turn the faucet counter-clockwise nothing comes out initially and then I start getting hot water - no cold at all - the water works fine in the toilet and sink in the bathroom - I just cannot get the cold water out of the shower/tub??? It has worked fine before and the faucet has not been replaced or anything - I am stumped as to what the problem could be?

You need to replace the Moen cartridge. There is a recent, long disertation on how to do this, in this forum within the past week. Check it out, and if you have questions, post back.

Good Luck,

Thanks for the help - I am going to try calling them because of all the faucets in the house, that one was used very little - it should be the last one to need something replaced - I am not much of a do-it-yourselfer - I read the responses to others trying to replace the moen cartridge and it has me a little scared to tackle it...but I will try! thanks for the help!
