Low water flow from kitchen faucet

I have a moen kitchen faucet that initially worked well. For the last several years, the flow from the faucet has been reduced such that it now takes a long time to just get one cup of water. I tried a new faucet and had the same problem. All the other faucets in the house have a normal water flow. Any ideas or solutions that I can try to avoid getting a plumber?

Their is likely rust build up behind the valve connections to the hot and possibly cold water supply lines. Turn the water off to the house relieve the pressure and remove both valves. Once removed use a screwdriver to break up the rust. With a small bucket under both lines turn the water main back on slightly to clear rust. Replace both valves with new ones.

Yes... if you have replaced the faucet once and had this same low water pressure on your new faucet then it probably is not your aerator (screw off piece on the tip of the water spout) which can get clogged whenever the valves are shut off and then back on... before doing anything else check that... your aerator can be cleaned and reassembled but a new one is about a buck.

If the aerator isn't your problem it's definately a water pressure issue related to the valves under your kitchen sink -- and here's what you can try... remove the aerator and take a phillips screw driver and hammer to the valves under your sink... place the tip of the driver on the handle screw on your valve and give it a good whap with the water running... a few good whaps on each valve and your pressure may increase and you'll see all kinds of sediment come out of the valve body and down the drain.

Chanfge the shut off valves under the sink,, they have a rubber washer in them and after time they seperate and clog the valve,, this will fix the problem,, good luck make sure you get the compression ones if you have copper water lines if they are plastic you will need the ones for cpvc and the 1 step glue to nstall them

What do i need to do to get a better water flow from my moen kitchen faucet #7700. when you turn on and wash hands it sprays water all over counter-


Sounds like your spray head on the faucet needs replacing. They do plug up with rust and corrosion every so often. You can take it off and try to clean it but be very careful it may still spray when you put it back together.

Cold water flow is slow and handle is starting to get a little stiff to raise and lower - what is wrong and how can it be fixed? Moen M7800 Kitchen faucet


Not sure whether you are aware or not but most times, if you call moen with your model number and explain the problem your having, they will usually send you (free of charge-lifetime warranty) the part with instructions on repairing it along with it. You may have the 7800 series, but there are 3 or 4 different models if you check their site, and can identify the actual model, they will send you repair parts. Tell them you bought it ? years ago, and don't have the receipt, if they even ask.
try this link, if no luck, get back to me.

Why did my moen faucet stop working? I have water flow throughout the house but the flow at the kitchen faucet just suddenly stopped!


Rubber gasket on the water shut off valve under the sink has come off and traveled up into the faucet. It's pretty difficult to get it out. If you have access to an air compressor you may get lucky by taking the faucet completely off the sink and blowing air back from the faucet outlet back into the internal piping to dislodge the rubber piece. If that doesn't work, or you can't use the air compressor method, then it's a trip to the hardware store for a new faucet.

My Moen kitchen faucet stopped working suddenly in that only a thin stream of water would flow at most when I turned on the hot water handle or the cold water handle to the maximum positions. I replaced...


wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...
