I recently replaced a Moen 1225 cartridge (for a T8350 Moen faucet). That fixed the leak, but now when I turn on the faucet (by pulling it out) the faucet does not stay at the temperature I put it at. The faucet handle will turn just a little bit. The handle moves very freely. I checked the holding screw to the cartridge and it is good and tight. So the cartridge and the handle are moving together. How can that be fixed?

Edit: the temp does not vary much but the faucet does move enough to make the tem change. And when turning the faucet, there is very little friction. I have similar faucets in the house and they need more effort to turn than this one for which I replaced the cartridge

  • Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. Are you saying that the temperature changes when you increase the volume, or that you can't set the temperature at all? Apr 23, 2019 at 23:53
