Put on some Teflon tape on the threads and then put the nut back in place . This is a cure for most all leaks. Remember to put about 1-2 revolutions of the tape in the direction you put the nut on. This keeps the tape from coming off when you put the nut on.
hiya:) ok...First dry EVERYTHING up good then fill the sink(s) if you can. if you don't have stoppers then just run the water.then get under the sink.(close as possible) and look closely, using tissue in one hand to blot anything that you think mite be leaking, for the leak. i say this because i think you might be mistaken about the location of the leak as the disposal rarely leaks from the bottom. if it is then it is most likely severely damaged and should not be used, but this very unlikely and would probably also be plainly visible. so if you want to check it again i will be happy to help you further:)
Replace the drain and plug with a new one while using silicone to seal the upper and lower half of the drain.........It is also a good practice to lubricate the rubber washer as well...........Wait 24 hours and it should be good to ge........Hope this helps.
All that is is sound deadener to make the sink quieter with dish washing. You can use any sort of high tack glue. I am fond of household goop. Mine fell off long ago and I tossed it. never noticed a difference.
Take it back out and clean all of the plumbers putty off. make sure that the bottom of the sink and the basket is clean and dry. Take a good quality silicone caulk and make a 1/4" bead all the way around the basket where it meets the sink. Tighten the basket nut till it gets nice a snug but not os that you spin the basket much. Then let the caulk setup over night. Trim away the excess with a sharp knife from the top and hook up the drain. This will seal a basket everytime. I never use plumbers putty anymore.
There are 2 sets of nuts and washers underneath the faucet that holds the faucet in place. loosen them and the water lines (after turning the water off) faucet lifts off from the top of the sink. Replacement the the same, just in reverse. BE SURE TO USE TEFLON TAPE OR PLUMBERS PUTTY ON THE WATER LINE THREADS TO PREVENT COSTLY LEAKS.
I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout
if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)
turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink remove the set screw and lift off the lever
at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place
temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking
if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install
If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink
once you have determined which it is (hot or cold) take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise
be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem
remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end
take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)
go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks
No matter what type of sink you purchase, the drain and water-supply connections are generally installed in the same way. Hand-tighten a female adapter onto the drain stub-out at the wall. Slide slip nuts onto the drain arm and the sink's tailpiece. Fit a P-trap in place and tighten the slip nuts by hand. Connect flexible water-supply tubes onto the faucet's tailpieces, and route them to the shut-off valves. Tighten coupling nuts with an adjustable wrench. Remove the faucet aerator, turn on the water, check for leaks at the shutoff valves, and then turn on the faucet to check for leaks in the drain assembly. Replace the aerator.
