SOURCE: Bathroom Faucet Handle Fell Off

There is a small allen screw in the base of the handle- the part the stem screws into to turn the water to the on position. If you have lost the one for your handle call moen at 1-800-289-6636 in the US. Their hours are Mon-Fri 8-8 EST and Sat 8-18:30 or follow this link MOEN. In Canada 1-800-465-6130 and hours are Mon-Fri 7:30-17:00 EST.

SOURCE: Moen single lever kitchen faucet leaking at base

check underneath spout ... if is plastic then is a "less expensive" model and the base and some internal parts may be also made of plastic. Is it a model 7100,7400 or 7600? this appears on stem on opposite side of spout... The base may be "out of round" (or "eccentric") from many yearsand may continue to leak even after replacing bottom o-ring. I have learned that if the faucet is older and plastic, advise the person to invest the money in a new Moen faucet: if you are paying someone to do the work, save time & money by having them make the switch instead of tryting to fix w/ a new o-ring, if you want to try to dis-assemble faucet and replace o-ring:

While you are changing o-ring might as well replace cartridge, get cartridge form same place you get o-ring, cartridges are supposed to be free (depending on hardware store) ...someone there should be able to help w/ dissasembly .. i hope ..

Plug drain(s) add some warm water to sink to be able to wash and rinse parts if needed, shut water off, relieve pressure by turning tap on ... plug drains!!! (tiny screws love drains...)

Most MOEN single handles: just pull top off straight up, most are just press fit on. This exposes screw. Before taking screw out make sure you have a clear area to set parts in order of removal taking care to remember alignment and order. Remove screw ...

Internal parts are usually threaded plastic so go easy on things ... unscrew retainers, remove lever control making note on how it engages the cartridge etc... this helps you figure out re-assembly

pull entire spout housing straight up (might resist a bit if crudded up) hold up to light and see if out of round.. you'll now see the brass interior...pinch out o-ring and replace. Silicone lubricant may help (get from same place as o-ring, cart. they should have little free packs..) slide spout housing back over ... re-assemble all in reverse, do not over-tighten plastic retainers, hand-tight ok .. if still leaks

might want a new one ... hope this helps

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.

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

How do i fix my leaky moen bathroom faucet?


Moen faucets are easy to repair. The cartridge you're looking for is most likely the #1224 cartridge, sold in pairs, and available at almost any home improvement store.

Shut the water off, unscrew the handle, remove the nut that holds the old, cartridge in, swap it out, and put the handle back. The whole job should take you about ten minutes.

Good Luck!

My new moen faucet has been leaking since it was installed i have had 2 plumbers come out to try to fix it and after a day or so I find it is leaking again ! It seems to be leaking in more than one...


If you have had 2 plumbers (I'm assuming licensed) come and take a look at the issue, and they have not been able to fix it, I would suggest returning the sink to the store that you bought it from and getting it exchanged. I've seen many things come straight out of the box not working due to manufacturing defects. This could include a sharp piece of metal pressing up against seals, and as you use the faucet, they cut and wear the seals prematurely. I would recommend you get either a new faucet or get your money back. It seems to be an issue with the faucet itself.

Moen Monticello 4-inch centerset bath faucets can be repair easily with only a screwdriver and adjustable wrench. Turn the water off to the both sides of the faucets under the sink. Open both the hot and cold-water valves to alleviate any remaining pressure. Remove the handles by grasping the base of the handle and turning it counterclockwise.( This works for both lever and cross handles). Loosen the Moen faucet cartridge bonnet nut with an adjustable wrench by turning it counterclockwise to the left. Pull the stem from the faucet by hand and replace. Reinstall the bonnet nuts and handles. Turn the water back on and test the faucet for leaks. The Moen Monticello faucet comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Try calling Moen to get your replacement parts free.

I have a slow leak coming from the spout


ooops, didn't mean for that to be a request, sorry...It was a solution. Although, if you dont want to deal with Moen, you can get one at your local plumbing suplly store. I recommend taking the old one with you (make sure you shut the water off first!). Again, good luck
