If you look under the sink, there should be an adjustment for it, that is if this is the stopper that came with the sink.  If it is an aftermarket, make sure you got the right size.

    Disconnect it.  Have someone lift the plunger all the way up.  Push it down about 1/2".  While they are hodling it there, put the stopper int he sink all the way down.  then go underneath and reconnect.

How to remove bath tub pop-up stoppers


Put the lever in the open position so that you can grab the stopper. After you get a grip on it, put the lever in the closed position and the drain plug and rocker assembly will pull out in a horizontal direction.

How to adjust the height of the pop up stopper


There is a threaded rod in the over flow line. Take the plate off adjust shaft by screwing it out making it longer so the stopper opens more, or screwing it in to make it shorter so it will close the stopper sooner.

Clogged drain on moen bathroom sink


There should be a stopper valve on the sink's downspout (the first section of drain pipe). You SHOULD be able to loosen the nut holding the stopper valve's lever inside the pipe. Once you remove that nut, you can pull the lever out - that releases the stopper inside the sink, so you should start with the stopper OPEN, and hold it open with a chopstick or pencil or other tool when you remove that lever.

The lever and the bottom of the stopper itself will be wrapped with masses of hair. That's normal. Clean it up and reinsert it, put the nut back on & snug it down, then readjust the stopper.

If that's not enough, you may need to open the trap (the gooseneck-shaped piece of drain pipe under the sink) to clean it out.

Some of the drain plugs have holes or slots in them so that the stopper can not be removed without taking the actulating lever out from under the sink. This rod is part of the linkage that is hooked to lift rod on top, Unscrew retaining nut to remove rod so you can take stopper out. Remember that any water that is in sink is going to run out of this hole once you remove rod. Good luck and thank you.

How do you secure the overflow plate


I think you're referring to the drain stopper in your sink? They have to positions, one drop in so you can remove it easily to remove debris, or the other position it is engaged in the lever assembly that raises and lowers it. Loosen the nut on the drain line where the lever enters the drain (under the sink) retract the lever slightly, lower the plunger with the hole aligned to the lever. Re-insert the lever and test that it raises and lowers the plunger. Then try to lift the plunger. If you have engaged the lever into the plunger then it will not come out. Re-tighten the nut.

You have to take apart the "drain rod" assembly under the sink. There will be a rod with nut on it that goes into the drain near the sink. Take the nut off, drop the stopper in with the eye hole towards the wall and then reinstall the rod through the eye on the stopper and tighten the nut.

Drain pop-up funnction not working


The stopper portion of the drain should have an adjustable threaded leg with a small nut to secure the setting after you have adjusted its lenght to open and close the drain. Make sure you adjust the lenght to the highest setting for better drainage. The linkage must be connected and tight between the vertical lift rod and the horizontal rod that enters the drain to make the stopper move up and down.
