    Default Having Trouble Removing Valve

    Hello. I'm hopping on this thread because I have the same valve and I'm having trouble getting the cartridge out. The photo shows my tub valve. I reinserted the handle screw and using a vise-grip tried pulling, yanking, twisting, and wiggling but it will not budge. Any suggestions from seasoned veterans?
    Thanks!

    Same faucet, only this time the stem broke off and remained in the knob. Any advice on removing the cartridge remaining in the valve body without the stem?
    How do I find a quality replacement cartridge?

    Are the two slotted screws on either side of the valve body for shutting off the water?

    INsert a screw into the remaining stem and THEN perform the previously stated extraction method, i.e., grab screw with pliers, push stem in, the pull out VIOLENTLY, maybe several times. Those are shut off valves.

    mission accomplished, the only glitch was the (LASCO) stem was hollow, a little smaller than a 5/16 bolt. I ran a 5/16 tap in it and gave the t-handle a tug and bam! old cartridge out. Replaced with PHISTER from MORRISON SUPPLY this time. This is probably one of those get what you pay for lessons I have such a hard time learning.
    Thanks!

    Default Price Pfister Shower Identification

    Had a shower valve that failed and started spraying water on me. I need to identify it so that I can get a replacement part. On the valve it says SHWR 7106. I found a thread that discusses this with a replacement part (S74-292) but not sure if it will work as well.

    I don't like pulling hard on the entire valve assembly as it may not be anchored well. It can also affect how well the spout is sealed.
    What I always do is:
    Remove retaining nut.
    I then use a channel lacks sideways.
    I place the cartridge shaft in the inner portion of the jaws, positioning the end of the jaws against the valve body.
    Using the valve body for leverage, while holding the cartridge shaft securely, I gently pull the shaft out with the pliers.
    Never had it fail nor does it damage the valve body threads
