I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout

if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)

turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink
remove the set screw and lift off the lever

at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place

temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking

if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install

If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink

once you have determined which it is (hot or cold)
take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise

be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem

remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end

take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)

go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut
install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks

good luck

Hansgrohe 35807801 kitchen faucet leak


On the 35807801 there are generally only two causes of a leak. If the faucet does not seem to shut off and constantly drips it will most likely be the cartridge. This will be part number 92730000. If the faucet is leaking around the sprayer or below the sink the most common cause is the pull out spray hose. This will be part number 88624000. If you need further help locating the parts or a dealer feel free to call Hansgrohe Tech at 1-800-334-0455.

You are getting water feeding back to the kitchen faucet from the filter system. A check valve needs to be installed on the line feeding the drinking water system to prevent this. Excess pressure may also be causing these problems. An in-line flow restrictor may alleviate the dripping.

Slow drip near back of lid


Hi there.this may be water dripping from the injector tube where the water actually enters the bowl.It is normal to drip for a short while after the machine has just been used but if it is a constant drip then you probably have a faulty inlet valve.Try this,turn off one of the taps & see if dripping stops.if not,turn off tha other tap & see if it stops.this will tell you which of the valves are leaking.You could just turn the taps off after use,that would save having to replace it.Hope that helped you.if not then give more detail if possible please.cheers!

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.
