Re: Blanco side sprayer fell off the hose
If the sprayer fell off the hose and you see no threads to screw it back on with, then the retainer clip has gone bad. Unscrew the sprayer at the bottom of the piece that came off the hose. There should be a little metal clip. That clip holds the sprayer on the hose. If the clip came off once it will again. Buy a new sprayer assembly with a new clip, unless someone has one sitting around.

You need to turn the water off under the sink. Disconnect the sprayer hose from the threaded shank under the center of the faucet body. Pull the spray head out of the faucet. Contact Blanco to receive your faucet parts free.
The reason it is hard to turn from side to side is the top nut located under the lever is too tight and the the weight does go around the flex line that leads to the faucet but is only the to pull the sprayer back in place.
Turn your water supply off to the existing faucet.
With a crescent wrench and plyers remove the supply tubes from the shut off valves.
Unthread the sprayer hose that is attached to the brass connector under neath your faucet in the cabinet.
Unthread the lock nut and fastening plate which is on the same brass fitting as your spray hose.
Remove faucet from the sink.
Reinstall the new faucet in the reverse order.
Hello. The side spray base is held in place with a washer and a nut on the underside of the sink. Sometimes this nut gets a bit corroded and can be difficult to remove. Here is what you will need to do. Borrow or purchase a faucet wrench. These are available at all hardware stores, home depot, lowes. Also get a can of a lubricating spray called WD 40. This is sometimes a two person job so call a friend. One person under the sink and one above, use the faucet wrench to grab ahold of the nut surrounding the hose. As you are looking up at it it will come off by turning it counter clockwise. If it doesn't come right off spray it with WD-40 and leave it for 30 minutes while the penetrating oil does it's magic.
You will also have to unscrew the sprayer and pull off the little metal keeper that will keep the hose from sliding through the opening.
Once these things are done you will have removed the old base and you will be ready to replace it by reversing the steps. Regards, Joe
PS kindly rate my answer. thank you.
Disconnect hose from sprayer unscrew nut on sprayer head remove washers and you will see a small c shaped clip get that apart then remove hose and thread it back on under sink and feed it back up through sink and reconnect to sprayer
pull the sprayer out, get some plyers or a wrench and losen up the connection. between the hose and the sprayer there is usually a screen take it out and walla it should take care of you, it also helps to leave the sprayer in some lime away or vinegar for a few hrs to get the hard water losened up in it
It may be a result of extreme temperature changes from the time you tightened the shank until the time it broke however this is very unlikely.Typically the shank only needs to be tightened until it is stationary and immovable by normal operating stresses which is a very low torque value. As a general rule of thumb I use finger tight and an additional quarter turn. I once used epoxy and a short nipple to resolve the same issue but I had the advantage of having a pipe threading machine to fabricate the perfect size nipple and used a large washer and coupling to finish it off. If you try a new shank try tightening it as little as possible and I believe this will resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and I hope this is of assistance to you.
Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
