SOURCE: Moen 7065 leaking at base of lever control in kitchen faucet

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

SOURCE: need to fix a broken moen kitchen faucet

I had the same problem with my Aberdeen single lever with a pull-out sprayer a few months back. If you are the original owner of the faucet, it's under warranty; you shouldn't have to pay for any parts. Call: 1-800-BUY-MOEN (1-800-289-6636) and tell Customer Service what the problem is. They will send you the Handle Mechanism Kit at no charge. (Mine was part #93980 for my Aberdeen faucet, but yours may be a different part number.) It's tricky to take apart and get back together but my husband and I have zero plumbing experience and got it all fixed in about 20 minutes. The Moen.com website also has exploded parts diagrams of all their faucets so you can identify exactly what part you need, and they have some little videos and slideshows to show how to replace parts. If you can't reach Customer Service on the phone, you can go to "Contact Us" on their website and email them a description of your problem.

SOURCE: I cant stop my Moen single lever kitchen faucet

1. If it's "leaking" from the body then, the O-Rings between the body of the faucet got gunked up with minerals from your water. This interferes with the seal.
The answer is to take some grit cloth/very fine sandpaper and clean the inside of the spout body. Wipe clean. I would also suggest replacing the O-Rings on the faucet body, but at the very least wipe the O-rings and faucet body clean.
THEN: lubricate the inside of the spout body AND the O-Rings with silicone grease. It's translucent and readily available and the only thing I would ever use for a faucet repair. NOT plumber's grease, NOT WD-40.
Reassemble and enjoy.

2. If it's dripping, the you need a new cartridge. You can get them for FREE from the hardware store if you have the old cartridge to trade them. The problem is that Moen cartridges are water-sealed into place and you need a special tool to break that water seal. The special tool (just a tiny piece of specifically shaped plastic, really) comes, you guessed it - with the new cartridge.
Two possible solutions: a) bite the bullet and just buy the cartridge (~$25) or buy a Moen cartridge puller, usually available from the hardware store as well for about the same price. Ask, they might even lend you one.
The point of whichever tool you end up with is to rotate the cartridge itself inside the faucet body to break the water seal so that you can pull it out with a set of pliers. There will be a retaining clip to pull out as well.

SOURCE: How do I remove the aerator on a moen pull out

It should just unscrew. You might need some needle nose pliers as the aerator may be slightly recessed.

How t fix moen kitchen faucet sprayer


Moen Spray Diverter Repair
First, remove head and soak in vinegar. Use toothbrush to remove scale. If this fixes your problem, ignore the following.

To repair your Moen sprayer, first pick up Moen part # 91192 diverter and a Moen #117 spout o-ring set. Remove the cap on handle, remove the screw on the interior cap and remove handle. Your spout can now be removed by pulling it straight up. Here is a pic of the part. Slide the diverter up and off the faucet post. Remove the two o-rings from the post and install only one large one and one small one onto post making sure to grease them with the silicone provided. The other small o-ring is for faucets without the spray. Discard it. Slide the new diverter down onto the post and reassemble the spout and handle assemblies. Make sure to properly engage the flat on the handle into the groove on the retainer nut when reinstalling handle..
Good luck!

    My Moen Chateau (older style) kitchen faucet is leaking under the cap that covers a black plastic part where the on/off lever attaches. I purchased and installed a new cartridge, but that didn't


    Did you know Moen faucets are warranted for life? You should go to Moen's website to identify the faucet you have and then contact them directly. They will ask you when you purchased and / installed the faucet but will not ask for a receipt or other proof of purchase. If the faucet was installed by a previous owner and registered by them - that warranty will be void unless you installed the same faucet after you bought the home (renovation, etc.).

    All parts and tech support are FREE from Moen and if your faucet is being phased out, they will offer you a choice of faucets from their current line up (similar to the one you have) for very short money (I paid less than $50 for mine).

    Good luck!

    How do you get the spout off?


    Information on your faucet can be found here:

    http://www.moen.com/chateau/chrome-two-handle-low-arc-kitchen-faucet/_/R-CONSUMER%3A7907

    The exploded parts view can be helpful is seeing how your faucet is assembled:

    http://www.moen.com/shared/pdf/7906pt.pdf

    First turn off the hot and cold water supply taps. Then to remove the spout you simply unscrew the spout cap counter-clockwise; you should then be able to lift the spout up and off the supply post.

    I know this is an old question, but I just had this issue when replacing the cartridge in my 100940 J1 Moen faucet. I had to tighten the Phillips-head screw down a little more that holds the plastic piece on to the cartridge stem. Hope that's the fix you needed.

    The water supply should have no bearing on the working motion of the faucet cartridge or handle. On both models of Moen faucet, the handle needs to be hooked under the cartridge's top cam bearing. It is a bit tricky sometimes. Here's the parts view for 7300 and 7310 Moen Kitchen faucet. Parts view for 7100 Moen.
