    Singe handle Phister faucet with spray line...humming noise when hot water turned on. Does not occur when cold water on. Solution was faulty sprayer head. Called company support, which analyzed the problem, and is sending a replacement sprayer head.

The hot water is expanding a little rubber o-ring and its allowing air to wistle through because it is not sealing right. Replace the rubber washer or o-ring that is on the hot side.

    Is this rubber o-ring on the faucet or the shut off valve?
