If it is leaking around the handle, the cartridge may be loose and you need to tighten it more. If it is leaking from the spout, the cartridge is faulty. Even if you bought a new one, it may be faulty. They are made in China and the quality control is awful.

    Would it be cartridge or something else


    Not the cartridge. There are O Rings around the spout that wear out. These need replacing. Call Rohl for replacement parts

    Leaking faucet


    Remove the handles. See if the chrome slip nuts holding the stems in are corroded. If they are, the cartridges may not be fully seated or the o -rings that seal around the cartridges may need to be replaced. If either of these is the case you can tell for sure by turning the stems to the on position with the handles removed and looking for water seeping around the cartridge. If none of the above is the cause then check to see if the aerator (screen on the spout) is loose or corroded sending a light spray back towards the faucet body that looks like a leak. If this is the case remove and clean the aerator, then reinstall it making sure not to cross thread it. If none of the above, replace the faucet. Be sure to call Delta first before replacing because they have a lifetime warranty and you just might get your faucet for free!

    How to fix a leaky Moen faucet that leaks at the spout ,which is separate from the handle?


    These faucets can leak in three different places:

    1. Internally at the valve seat
      You'll see water dripping from the spout. This means the rubber washer is worn or damaged. To replace the washer, remove the decorative cap from the handle. Remove the retaining screw and pull off the handle. Remove the decorative cover, called an escutcheon, if there is one. Unscrew the packing nut counterclockwise. Unscrew the valve stem and remove it. Remove the screw that holds the rubber washer in place. Because these washers come in many shapes and sizes, you'll want to take the old one to the hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Be sure to buy two washers so you'll have one for the other valve. Replace the washer and reassemble the faucet.
    2. Around the handle
      If you see water coming from below the handle, the packing nut is leaking. Older faucets have a string-like graphite packing material wrapped around the stem. Newer faucets use an O-ring. First try tightening the packing nut clockwise... about one-half turn. If this doesn't stop the leak, remove the packing nut and replace the packing or O-ring; then reassemble the faucet. If the valve is using the graphite packing material, it might be a clue that you should shop for a new faucet.

    3. Between a pivoting spout and the body
      The spout might be held in place with a packing nut, similar to the faucet stem, or it might have a nut at the top of the spout. In either case, remove the spout and replace the packing material or the O-ring seal. Then reassemble the faucet.
    Single lever faucets also are known as "washerless" faucets. They are easier to repair than compression faucets after you determine what type of faucet you have. There are three types of washerless faucets: ball, ceramic disk and cartridge.
    Leaks are evident in two places... dripping from the spout and seeping from around the spout where it joins the body of the faucet.
    Leaks from the spout indicate that the ball, disk or cartridge is leaking. To repair, turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle. The handles on ball-type faucets are held in place with a setscrew that requires an Allen wrench to loosen. Ceramic disk and cartridge-type handles usually are held in place by a screw hidden beneath a cap.
    On ball and ceramic disk-type faucets, remove the ball or disk and replace the seals. You can buy replacement kits for these faucets at the hardware store or home center.
    On cartridge-type faucets, remove the spout and pull out the retainer clip that holds the cartridge in place. To remove the cartridge, pull on the cartridge stem with a twisting motion. If it resists, install the handle so you can a better grip on the cartridge to pull it out. Take the cartridge to the hardware store or home center and purchase an exact replacement kit.
    Reassemble the faucet according to directions.
    Leaks at the spout-to-body joint indicate an O-ring failure. Disassemble the faucet as described above. Remove the spout sleeve and replace the O-rings. It's a good idea to replace these seals if you have the faucet disassembled for repair of the ball, disk or cartridge.

    Moen kitchen faucet model 7430 leak


    cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.
