Our Aqua Source single handle faucet will not spray water after switching from sprayer to full stream.

This is a newer kitchen faucet and this problem has happened a couple times before, but we always got the water to flow again. This time we've tried several times, but cannot get water to flow after switching the stream from full to spray back to full. The water stopped when switching back to full. Now nothing.

If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)(this is not your faucet but works the same)

There should be an Allen screw on the underside of the handle. Loosen it to take the handle off, then tighten up the packing nut with a channel-lock wrench.

Kohler sprayer with forte single handle, will not spray well. When sprayer is on the flow to faucet cuts off but there is only a small amount of water coming out the sprayer.


Check to be sure the hose isn't kinked somewhere below the faucet. If there aren't any kinks there is likely debris stuck behind the nozle screen, remove it and clean it- or your handle mechanism is broken. Replacement handles and hoses are fairly inexpensive if you need one they're easy to find at most big hardware stores or on Amazon

When the water is turned on, the faucet "sputters" and "hammers" as if the water had been turned off then back on when it hasn't been. Plumber says we need new part (inside cartridge 070807-Aqua Source)....


The USUAL cause of this is the diverter valve that channels the water to the sprayer. There are several types of these so search for yours in google to find a blow-up drawing of it. They are usually in the tower the spout swings on and sometimes are a pintle valve like a little rod with dumbells on the ends. Crud can make them not seat then they will cause the hammering.

Moen kitchen faucet leak from spray


This might mean that the diverter in that controls the sprayer needs replacing. It is located behind the valve body underneath the tub spout sleeving

Sprayer leaking from inside handle mechanism


although it is possible that the spray head has gone bad, it is more likely that the diverter mechanism inside the kitchen faucet needs replaced. When this part is defective, it allows full pressure from the faucet to go to sprayer head even though the sprayer is not triggered. The sprayer is not designed to handle full pressure when it is not spraying.

Delta kitchen faucet mixed spray...diverter problem???


No a pull out sprayer problem is different.

First try this. Pull out the sprayer and remove from hose by turning nut that connects sprayer to hose. If you can get someone to help you it would be nice since the hose can go down into the faucet and might be trouble to retrieve. Look in the connection on the sprayer where the hose connects and look at the screen. If the screen is plugged or dirty clean and reinsert. If you can't clean it replace it. If this isn't working go to the next suggestion below.

In the spray head of the faucet there is a build up of deposits from use and or water hardness. Here is the link to the Delta site.

Delta Faucets

If you find you faucet model order a new spray head. Once these go bad they usually need replacing.

Kitchen spray not working completely.


Make sure the sprayer is clean of debris. IF YOU HAVE HARD WATER, soak in CLR overnight. If sprayer is clear then its the diverter which is more indepth thru the stem.
