Kitchen faucet Remove

How do I remove my old faucet? I have a single spout for hot and cold water. Is the solution the same for two valves? The leak is just under the single spout for hot and cold water.

All faucets have a hot and cold line input. The single handle units have a mixing valve within the handle. Aside from removing the water lines there is usually some type of connecting bolts for the base plate as well that will need to be removed prior to removing the faucet. Do not forget to turn the shut off valves off at the wall before you remove the water lines.

Good Luck

    Faucet leaking at tee where hot and cold connect to spout


    The designs of the Kitchen Sink Faucet mainly exhibit differences in its handles and spouts. Differently curved spouts and handles diversify the range of products. Some have long spouts and some are with short ones. The spouting of water may also give different flow patterns with the external fixtures. The handles are mainly in single or double.

    Take the cartridge out, Place a mug style cup over the open faucet. Now if your arms are long enough you can do it alone. If not have some one under the sink and open the valves both hot and cold.

    You might have left junk inside from the old cartridge. Then place your hand on top to cover the hole where the cartridge was and see if water comes out of the spout,

    If you done get water out remove the spout and clear ir and put it all back together again.

    Be safe. Best of luck

    No Hot water coming out when single handle on hot water side.Cold water comes out fine. Water in the lines leading to the taps, but no hot water coming out. This is a bathroom faucet Moen single handle.


    Cartridge removal is a simple matter of exposing and pulling out the old cartridge. Before getting started, turn off both water valves underneath the sink and allow the water to run until the line is clear. Using a screwdriver, gently pry off the cap on the lever of the faucet handle to expose the cartridge. Remove the U-shaped retaining clip that holds the cartridge in place and pull the cartridge out. If dirt or residue makes removal difficult, use a Moen cartridge puller to assist you. A cartridge puller fits over the cartridge and gives you greater pulling power.

    Soak the dirty cartridge in vinegar for four hours and replace.

    If cleaning the cartridge does not work, call the Moen Helpline at 1-800-465-6636 or Customer Service at 1-800-465-6130 to order a free replacement. Locate the part number on the cover page of your instruction manual. If you no longer have the manual, look on the underside of the spout.

    The hot water side has low water pressure. The


    start by making sure the valve that supplies hot water to the sink and dish washer is fully open. If there is low hot water pressure in any of the other kitchen/bathrooms, then trace the line to see where the pressure drops. If it is only in the kitchen, it should be an old valve, (causes restriction)Good Luck.

    7. You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.

    Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet


    It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
    • Easy fix
    1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
    2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
    3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
    4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
    5. Reconnect supply line.
    6. Turn on angle stop and test
    • Complex fix
    If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

    Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
