SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

SOURCE: I have a Moen Single Handle kitchen faucet, it's

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

SOURCE: handle won't stay up

I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

    Leaky faucet


    This is generally due to a loose or faulty cartridge. To fix:

    1. Turn off water supply valves under sink.

    2. Block the sink drain to avoid losing small parts.

    3. Remove faucet handle. It is attached by a set screw, an odd size (I actually used a T9 torx screwdriver successfully, even though the set screw is hex head, since I did not have a matching allen key). The set screw is quite far into the handle, ~3cm, through a hole in the bottom of the handle. Depending on your countertop layout, you may have to actually remove the entire faucet from the countertop in order to get access to it, in which case follow the appropriate parts of your faucet installation directions in reverse.

    4. Remove dome. It will come off with a gentle turn/pull.

    5. Check the tightness of the exposed large hex nut. This is the piece that holds the cartridge in place. If you are lucky, it is just loose, and that's your problem; otherwise you will need a new cartridge.

    6. Unscrew that nut, remove. Pull out the cartridge.

    7. Replacement cartridges may be found at your local Moen dealer, or may be ordered directly from Moen +1-800-Buy-Moen. Parts are free due to the lifetime warranty. Part #1255 includes the cartridge, cartridge nut, and set screw. The nut must be changed with the cartridge (presumably due to its wear characteristics).

    To reassemble:

    8. If you have it, place a very small amount of plumber's silicone lubricant on the back of the cartridge, on the rubber seals around the three holes.

    9. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly. The cartridge only goes in one way, due to three guiding channels on its perimeter.

    Enjoy!

    I have a moen 7637 single handle kitchen faucet that leaks around the stem. How do I take the lever off.


    1) Use a small sharp-pointed knife and pop out the little plastic Moen logo at the bottom of the front side of the handle (and don't lose it!)
    2) Lift the lever up a bit (the water may turn on) until you can see a small screw with an allen wrench socket.
    3) Unscrew the allen-head screw; the handle will lift straight up.

    Look down into the faucet; there's a philllips head screw. The leaking may simply be caused by this screw being loose.

    Need to change washer faucet


    Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.
