Handle on faucet shuts off on its own

I have a Price Pfister Marielle kitchen faucet which shuts off by itself. If the lever is not pulled up at least half way, it will come back down on its own. It does it on both hot and cold sides. what is the problem?

    Same here. It shuts off automatically when we try to adjust to half of a stream or less. I pulled the handle off and looked for an adjustment screw. There is not one.



    It appears to be a design flaw. The weight of the handle is heavy enough to shut it off if it is not in the full upright position. Any ideas.

I had the same problem. The Price Pfister web site recommends removing the handle (unscrew the dome cap, then remove the phillips screw to get the handle off) then tightening the retaining ring (I used channel lock pliers on largest setting. It worked. However the retaining ring is plastic on some models, and they recommend replacing it with a brass one. I haven't taken that step yet, we'll see how it goes (mine is plastic).

Diverter is not tight. Turn off water. Take out set screw holds down handle . Pull off handle, tighten down diverter screw. If the faucet is older it should have new washers installed too.

SOURCE: I have a price Pfister Marielle kitchen faucet.

There is an o-ring around the valve body inside the outer shell. This needs replacing -- sometimes you can match these at hardware stores.

Shut water off, remove handle, pull up outer shell, you'll see the o-ring.

More info, let me know.

Avalon cartridge faucet handle sticking


I would try replacing the cartridge. Handle has a set screw (probably an allen head) There should be a retaining nut holding the cartridge in. Unscrew it and pull the old cartridge out. You might have to pull pretty hard.
