Question about Moen 87440 Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Sprayer Chrome
Fixed a leak, but handle now operates backwards - away from the front of the sink & only toward the back. Tried taking handle off & putting back on a couple of times, but always with the same results. What is the mechanism that directs the handle? I must have it put together incorrectly in some fashion. Thanks.
Remove stem, turn it half a turn in either direction (180deg.) replace stem and your good to go

Hot water line connected to left side of faucet? Did you replace tap set, or just cartridge? Cartridge may be out 180 degrees.

If you still have the receipts from the purchase call Moen directly as they warranty their faucets for life and will send you the replacement parts you need. If you need to purchase replacement parts then you can purchase a Moen single lever repair kit from your local hardware store which should run you around $10. Go the the Moen website and look for your model. They generally have an exploded view of every one of their models that will assist you in dissassembling the tap without any surprises. Reassemble the tap with the new o-rings etc installed and test.
