You need to remove the moen cartridge. first, remove handle. at the top of stem, there is a U shaped retainer clip. it hard to see,use a small knife blade to catch the closed side of clip and slide clip out. once clip is removed, you should be able to pull cartridge out with a twist and pull motion. if it wont come out,that way dont pull to the point where you brake cartridge. that means replacing faucet. in extreme cases, you ca buy a moen stem puller for about $15. once stem i out simply coat with stem grease and replace cartridge. when replacing retaining clip, keep a pushing in pressure on end of stem to allow clip to slide into place. it iseasier to do than it sounds

SOURCE: Rohl 3810 kitchen pullout faucet leaks under the sink

ouch sadly im sure it was pricy to have him out  so my suggestion would be to call him back and have him take off the price of what he charged you or have him fix it for no charge could be just need some plumbers putty around the faucet to stop a little water that may seep threw under the faucet good luck

SOURCE: moen kitchen faucet spout

there should be a removable "button" on the faucet base below the handle. under there, there should be a set screw. loosen the screw, remove the handle. now u can adjust the base, collar, etc. to ur liking...don't forget to reassemble everything the same way u removed 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.

    You can just replace the o-rings. You have to remove the large nut at the base of the spout. I posted a blog post -and a video about me replacing mine.
