SOURCE: Repair cartridge in Moen Monticello single handle lavatory faucet

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

SOURCE: Water suddenly stopped flowing from faucet.

This happened to me just tonight, "slam" and all on a Delta 470. The gasket that leads to the pull-out hose corroded and finally slipped free, lodging itself in the hose. Just pull off the hose by removing the plastic clip, then pulling on the hose with a good tug, it should come free. The destroyed gasket was sitting right in the connector in a perfect spot to block the water any time it was turned on. This particular gasket is a "second layer of defense" gasket, but even though the faucet probably won't drip without it, you should probably still replace it.

SOURCE: Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

My pfister shower cold water faucet handle broke off. The stem is stuck so I can't replace the faucet handle. How do I remove this stuck portion of the old handle?


the model is needed for a step by step but. if your faucet is for a sink and not a shower then the handles may be connected to the pour spout or separate depending on model and in either case there is a nut screwed under the fixture that hold it in place. do not unscrew any of the faucet until you have turned of the water running to it.

How to disassemble the delta single handle bathroom faucet


Before taking it apart, you need to turn off the cold and hot water valves under the sink. Once you have done that, open the faucet and let the remaining water run out into the sink. Since I am not sure what the age of your faucet is. I will be using instructions for a common Delta faucet.

1. There is a hole towards the bottom of the handle in the front. It may have a plastic button there. If so, pry the button off with a very small flat head screwdriver. Try not to damage it.

2. If your going to replace the seals, it is best to by the rebuild kit that comes with a special tool. It includes the allen wrench and spanner wrench in one. And all necessary parts to rebuild it.

3. Once you get the handle off, you will see a dome shaped part with two notches in it. It may have ridges on the side of it. That is the special fitting that holds all the parts down.

4. Remove the dome shaped part with the tool provided with the parts kit.

5. Replace all parts that match yours.

6. Install everything in reverse order and you should be good to go.

Normally you just turn that ring, counter clockwise. If too hard to turn, I usually put a rag over it, to avoid scratching, and use a pair of channel lock pliers, and squeeze just hard enough not to slip.

DELTA SINGLE HANDLE GOURMET SPRAY faucet


Hello. Actually it is not difficult to remove the faucet. If you can pull up the sink with faucet attached it will be very easy. Otherwise get under the sink with a flashlight and you will see what tools are needed. A special extendable faucet wrench from Home Depot would come in very handy. Regards. Joe
