Often asked: How To Install The 1224 Moen Kitchen Facuact Cartridge?

What is the difference between Moen 1224 and 1224b?

Answer: The 1224 is packaged in retail packaging sold at retail stores. The 1224b is not in pretty retail packaging but just the cartridge only in a bag. All double handle faucets from Moen use the same cartridge.

How do I know what Moen cartridge to buy?

The easiest way to find the Moen shower valve replacement cartridge you need is to know the series or model number of your Moen bathroom faucet. Exact information for these comes with any paperwork you have received when you first installed the original shower faucet (hopefully you saved it).

What is the difference between Moen 1224 and 1248?

The 1248 is very slightly longer, and very slightly wider. You’ll also see a couple of notches at the valve opening (picture attached) that aren’t present on the 1224. It’s great fun, because the tool is metal and the retaining ring is plastic.

How do you remove a cartridge from a Moen faucet?

To remove the cartridge from your faucet assembly, first hold the handles steady and unscrew the handle hub counterclockwise. Once the handle hub is loosened completely, pull the handle off the valve assembly. Then, loosen and remove the nut from the cartridge using pliers.
