Clip will not come loose from kitchen facent moen 7100 to remove carttridge

If you didn't open the faucet to relieve the pressure, the cartridge is pushing up against the clip. Making sure that the valves under the kitchen sink are closed, and open the faucet to relieve the pressure. There is usually a hole at the end of the clip which you can stick an awl into to help removal. Good luck!

P.S. Make sure to note which side of the brass spindle has the notch on it. It should be either facing you, or it should face away. If you put it in wrong, you will reverse the hot and cold. If this happens, simply remove the handle and rotate the spindle 180 degrees to reverse it back.

945 Kitchen Bridge Faucet - Swivel Spout, 9-1/2" (no Han) Brand: Newport Brass NB945-26 Series: 900 The stem moves up and down slightly when I turn on/off the water pressure. It does not leak but...

There is a good chance that if you remove the handle there will be a retainer of some sort. The retainer's job is to keep the stem/cartridge from pushing out due to water pressure. It may be in the form of a nut or a clip. Be careful removing the handle because if the retainer is completely disengaged then the stem/cartridge may shoot up. Turn the hot and cold water off at the valves located under the sink and relieve the pressure by turning the faucet on. If it's a loose nut it will spin freely. Tighten it. If it is a clip you may need to play with the stem/cartridge to align it properly before the clip will move into place..

Hi, TYhe instructions for both models are the same. The 2 different methods of installation/uninstallation in the instructions refer to whether or not an escutcheon was used when installed. The escutcheon is the chrome piece that encircles the faucet and fits on the sink. So, if you have just a bare, chrome tube entering the sink, there is no escutcheon.

I hope this helps. Please click a vote for me if it does.

How to insert bearing washer on moen single handle kitchen faucet

I have the exact same problem! The gray plastic washer has popped out from between the plate and the brass groove below the washer! I can't for the life of me get it back under there. Because it's sitting too high, the handle doesn't fit and the metal plate is loose.
Please help!
