Can't remove moen faucet hub

I have a moen 2 handle kingsley bathroom faucet and I am trying to fix a leaky drip by replacing the washer. The lever handle came right off with a screw driver, but now I cannot remove the hub which seems to be attached to the granite counter. The instal instructions say it screws on, so I've tried to unscrew it counter clockwise, but I'm just ruining the hub. Any ideas?

How do i fix my leaky moen bathroom faucet?


Moen faucets are easy to repair. The cartridge you're looking for is most likely the #1224 cartridge, sold in pairs, and available at almost any home improvement store.

Shut the water off, unscrew the handle, remove the nut that holds the old, cartridge in, swap it out, and put the handle back. The whole job should take you about ten minutes.

Good Luck!

Moen 2 handle bathroom faucet is leaking out of base of the left handle


There is a plastic retainer not with two tabs used for removal. You will need a removal tool to get this retainer off. Any plumbing supply that carries Moen should have this tool.
After removing the retainer nut, the cartridge pulls right out. Good luck!

Replacing the handle adapter on a 4-inch moen monticillo bathroom faucet. Can't get the handle hub to unscrew with a strap wrench. tried using lime away to cut the 15 years of crud around the handle...


Sometimes there is a small set screw located on the handle.It takes a small allen wrench to loosen it.That should enable you to remove the handle assembly.

L have a moen kingsley t125 with a moen 9000 m pact the cold water handle comes out with a trickle only when you turn it on the hot water is find unit is about one year old


You have a obstruction in cold side turn off both cold and hot water to faucet then disassemble cold side(take note of how you take apart it must go back correctly) slowly open cold water stop to see if you can dislodge obstruction(use a towel over cold water handle assembly to keep from water shooting everywhere).

Just purchased the home and the handle on the moen 4551 cp is loose. The handle actually falls off the fixture. There is a plastic grommet or washer that is broken. How do I replace this plastic grommet...


You can find the parts diagram here: http://www.moen.com/monticello/chrome-two-handle-low-arc-bathroom-faucet/_/R-CONSUMER%3A4551 . The washer kit is part number 97274. The lever and the hub and elbow that the handle connects to depend on the finish and whether you need the hot or cold side replaced. Levers: 97557 Chrome 97558 Pol. Brass, hub and elbow: Cold 100552 Chrome, 100552P Pol. Brass; Hot 100553 Chrome, 100553P Pol. Brass.

You may be able to find the washer at a local hardware store (like Ace or Tru-Value). Alternatively, call Moen or visit the Moen site. 1-800-BUY-MOEN or http://www.moen.com/replacement-parts/product?product=IMGLIB:CA84437BN to order replacement parts.

You'll have to pay for the washer kit. However, if the hub and elbow or the lever are damaged, call Moen and see if they will replace it under warranty.

I hope this helps.

My waltec bathroom sink was leaking now that i messed with it ,its running by itself how do i fix this problem


It would help to know where is was leaking and what you "messed with"?

But in general, the idea is to replace the washers.
To do that, first turn off the water under the sink.
Then you first remove the handle on the leaking side.
There is often a small metal or plastic cover over a phillips screw.
Then remove the metal cap around the handle stem by unthreading or lifting up.
Then you can remove the valve by turning it as if to make the water go on.
It will have a washer on the bottom, held on with a screw.
Remove the screw, get a new washer, and then replace.

There is a little cap on the top of the handle, after removing in there is a philips screw under that and that will release the broken plastic part.

Moen T910 Kingsley two handle, whirlpool tub faucet. The hot water handle only puts out lukewarm water. The water heater is turned up and all the other faucets in the house put out scalding hot water.


if you remove the hot water handle on the faucet you can adjust the stop. if it is a newer faucet it has a built in scold guard. the directions should tell you which direction to move the stop to get hotter water

How do you take a moen bathroom Model #: 84206 apart to fix a drip? Hot water side has a slow drip. Need to replace a seal. How does it come apart?


On the handle it self you should see a red and blue button plug. Remove this and you will see set screw. Remove handle, remember to shut off hot and cold water supplies under sink before you go any further.
