Moen 1225B cartridge will fix that.
Hi folks, looking for some advice on how to get a shower valve unstuck. A roommate broke the handle off a couple years ago, and i just put a new one on....and realized why the last one broke, the valve seems stuck. Won't push, pull, turn, nothing, nada. The wall plate says its a Stanodyne, picture is attached. From what I am seeing I have a feeling that if I call a plumber Im going to end up with a bigger hole in my wall and a bigger hole in my wallet, too. Any obvious tricks/tips/solutions to getting this valve to work?
Thanks in advance!

The answer may be that YOU will not get it out, but a skilled plumber with the right tools, (and I have about 5 different ones to remove it depending on the situation and how it degrades as each tool is applied to the core), should be able to do it in a matter of minutes.
