1200, 116719 and 162154 Cartridge: Moentrol with Integrated Transfer Valve

This article will provide step-by-step instructions on how to replace the upper diverter cartridge in a Moentrol with Integrated Transfer Valve shower system. Moen has used three different diverter cartridges in this assembly, the 1200, 116719 and 162154 cartridges.

Preparation:

  • The water supply shut off valves must be turned off- see article How to Turn Off the Water Supply to the Faucet.
  • Recommended Tools: Phillips Screwdriver & Pliers
  • The following instructions assume the handle and associated handle pieces have been removed. For additional details, visit Vertical Spa: Moentrol with Integrated Transfer Valve and select the type you are repairing. The faucet guide will contain specific information on handle assemblies associated with that style of product.
  • We recommend covering the drain before beginning so to not loose any parts down the drain.

Egg-Shaped Escutcheon Plate (Prior to 2007):

Disassembly:

  1. To remove the upper mounting cup (#2A), use a Phillips screwdriver to unthread the upper mounting cup screws (#1A) counter-clockwise. Repeat this step for the lower mounting cup (#4A) and lower mounting cup screws (#3A).
  2. Slide off the escutcheon plate (#5A).
  3. Grab ahold of the stop tube (#6A) and pull it forward until it has been removed.
  4. Lift the tab at the top of the U-shaped copper colored retaining clip (#7A) just enough to grab it with your hand to fully remove. Be careful not to drop the clip (#7A) behind the wall.
  5. Using the plastic twisting tool (see Image 1 below) provided in the cartridge service kit (#8A), rotate the cartridge (#8A) 1/4 of a turn (90 degrees) in either direction (see Image 2 below). This will help loosen the cartridge (#8A). Remove the twisting tool from the top of the cartridge (#8A). Pullout the stem of the cartridge (#8A) until it stops. Using pliers, grab the stem of the cartridge (#8A) and pull the cartridge (#8A) out (see Image 3 below). This may require some effort. Note: It is highly recommended to clean and flush the valve body (#9A) before installing the new cartridge (#8A). See Valve Body Cleaning and Flushing  for additional details.

Assembly:

1. Slide the new cartridge (#8A) into the brass valve body (#9A). Use the twisting tool to position the cartridge (#8A) correctly in the valve body (#9A). The plastic tabs on the cartridge (#8A) must be centered on the slots on the valve body (#9A), which are located at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions.

2. Gently slide the copper clip (#7A) back into the brass valve body (#9A) on top of the cartridge (#8A). If you encounter any resistance, do not force the copper clip (#7A). The cartridge (#8A) may not be properly aligned (see step 1). If for any reason the copper clip (#7A) cannot be installed, the water cannot be turned back on to the shower system until the copper clip (#7A)  is replaced.

3. Pull the brass stem of the cartridge (#8A) outward and rotate the stem of the cartridge (#8A) so the two flat sides of the brass stem are facing to the left and right.

4. Slide the stop tube (#6A) back onto the valve body (#9A).

5. Position the escutcheon plate (#5A) with the word "Moen" upright and slide it onto the valve body (#9A).

6. Position the upper mounting cup (#2A) so the screw holes lines up with the screw holes on the valve body (#9A). While holding the upper mounting cup (#2A) in position, use a phillips screwdriver to thread the upper mounting cup screws (#1A) clockwise until tight. Repeat this step with the lower mounting cup (#4A) and lower mounting cup screws (#3A).

Oval Shaped Escutcheon Plate (After 2007):

Confirm that the cartridge clip is installed and use pliers to pull the brass stem of the cartridge (#6A) outward. Rotate the stem of the cartridge (#6A) so the two flat sides of the brass stem are facing to the left and right.

4. Using the plastic twisting tool (see Image 1 below) provided in the cartridge service kit, rotate the cartridge (#5B) 1/4 of a turn (90 degrees) in either direction (see Image 2 below). This will help loosen the cartridge (#5B). Remove the twisting tool from the top of the cartridge (#5B). Pullout the stem of the cartridge (#5B) until it stops. Using pliers, grab the stem of the cartridge (#5B) and pull the cartridge (#5B) out (see Image 3 below).
