Moen Tub Faucet Problem - No hot water
I get only cold water for my shower/bath. It's a single handle Moen posi (something) valve with a single handle operator. Question: Ok. The water is turned off and everything removable from the front is removed. Will repressuring the system "blow out" the barrel (extra pressure can be applied with air)? If this works then there is no "pulling" of any of the insides. Naturally, the shower head has to be removed and the outlet capped.
If this will work there may be leaking at the spot where the "U-shaped" clamp is located, which means the water/air have to be shut off very quickly.
Moen shower faucet hard to turn off
I'm also at the point where I have to remove the sleeve from my faucet.
The problem I'm having is the faucet is incredibly hard to turn after 5-10min. of shower use. No leaks or drips, just very difficult to push in/off. The inner cartridge appears to be in decent shape. Any suggestions as to what would cause this? thanks in advance for any and all help.
