SOURCE: Moen one handle kitchen faucet very low water stream

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

SOURCE: No water pressure in kitchen sink. Not the aerator.

First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.

1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?

If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.

2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.

Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.



Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a moen pull out kitchen faucet that leaks

You have a bad internal o-ring or the sprayer o-ring is leaking, if you look under the sink turn it off and then turn it back on, if you see it leaking out the center shft where the water pipes go into then the faucet may have a broken pipe or loose pipe. check and tell me where it's leaking at. You can buy kits to repiar them they are inexpensive.

SOURCE: Moen kitchen faucet model 7430 leak

cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.

No water comes out


If it's a kitchen or lav faucet, unscrew the aerator and clean or replace it. A kitchen faucet could have the diverter jammed with debris. Look on line to see how to remove the handle and spout to clean it. If it's a shower valve, just replace cartridge.

I have a brand new moen muirfield high arc faucet with low pressure at spout but good pressure at side spray what can i do to get better pressure at spout


clevine336-

The design of a hand sprayer is meant to provide a higher pressure spray (the smaller outlet size means greater velocity in the water coming out of the sprayer head). That said, there could be something constricting the water flow in your faucet. If you unscrew the aerator on the end of the faucet do you get better pressure? Is the screen in the aerator clogged with sediment or mineral deposits? If this is the case you may have water requiring periodic cleaning of the aerator.

Hope this helps.

Water is leaking around base of "spout" and


If you have properly replaced the diverter assembly, there is either a problem with valve or debris was left in the valve from old diverter when new diverter was installed. Disassemble diverter by pulling spout back off. remove new diverter and check valve. Cup your hand over faucet and turn cold water handle on to attempt to flush any debris left behind. Try several times then reassemble. If this doesn't do the trick then replace. Get a quality filtering system and take care of your new faucet by making sure it's dry and polished after use. You won't be replacing your fixtures as often from calcium and corrosion.

possibly the aerator has trash in it. unscrew it from the end of the spout and flush it out. also could be the gaskets on the side of the cartridge bunched up when installed. remove and coat with non-petroleum grease (lowes has it) and re-install.

Moen has a diverter built in that will need to be replaced.

use the same steps as when you replaced the cartridge, but this time you will need to remove the spout, there is a small diverter, you will see it when spout is removed.

take this part with you to the hardware store, along with the O Rings from the spout, as they will need to be replaced also

use a non silicone faucet lubricant when putting back together

Trying to be a plumber for my daughter & son-in-law. House is maybe 4 yrs. Old. The Moen 7840 has inadequate pressure to the faucet. The sprayer is fine. Sometimes it works Okay.


The sometimes it works OK puzzles me a little, but I will do my best here. From the description you gave my first thought is the water saver in the aerator. If you havn't already, remove the aerator on the end of the spout and turn on the water and see if that makes a difference. If so you may want to remove the water saver from the aerator. It is usualy a plastic peice about the size of a dime with a small hole or holes in it. While you have this apart you may want to clean the screens as well. The works sometimes may mean that the diverter dor the spray is hanging and that is another story alltogether. Try the aerator fist. I hope this helps.

Low water pressure from faucet, but plenty of pressure in water lines.


1-Remove aerator from end of faucet spout to check to make sure it is not obstructed by anything. Grit builds up there and causes flow to decrease , but it can be taken appart and cleaned out.

2-If you have a sprayer attachment to it sometimes the diverter goes bad. This sends water to spray head.

Cut water off remove handle with allen wrench and loosen collar on top to gain access to remove spout. after removing handle and collar you can pull up on spout or work it side to side easily to remove it.

In the middle at the bottom it has a removeable diverter that can be removed and replaced.

If it comes appart it will restrict water flow.

3- If you have to remove faucet to make sure no obstructions any where esle.

I hope this may be some help for you to have a starting point.

I have a moen #7560 faucet that makes a whistle sound when it is turned on and running. what is the cause


to much or too little water pressure or some sort of build up in the aerator.
Try removing the aerator and turning the water on and see if you have the same result....if not replace the aerator....if so check for scale build up inside spout or the water pressure.
