SOURCE: How do I disassamble my one-handle kitchen faucet?

First ensure you have shut the water supply off at the stops- the small valves located underneath most plumbing appliances. Since we are speaking generically my comments may be a bit different depending on make and model. Most single handle faucets have a snap on cover over the base where the handle connects to the valve base. Pop this cover off and it will expose a screw that holds the handle onto the valve cartridge.You will need to remove this screw this will expose a nut/retainer that holds the cartridge in place- remove this item. Now will be able to pull the cartridge out using a pair of pliers. If the cartridge will not come out most home repair stores sell a cartridge extracting tool. This tool is a tee handle device that screws into the cartridge and has a nut that one tightens to break the cartridge free of the valve body. Some extreme cases will require some extreme pulling and snatching on the Tee handle to get the cartridge out. I personally dry the interior of the valve body a apply a thin coat of grease/lubricant to improve the service life of the new cartridge. Hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of anymore assistance please let me know.

SOURCE: 533-50 kitchen faucet leaks above base mount at

There are O rings that seal the various body parts of this faucet. I would try turning off the supply lines, removing the handle, and unscrewing the faucet and the housings. Look for O rings that seal each part. Could be a broken, or maybe some foreign material has gotten in the O ring grooves. Best bet would be to replace any O rings and tighten it all back securely. It should not have any Up and Down play, should only swivel side to side. I'm thinking O rings. While there, you can replace the seat seals and springs, so that you preclude any leaks from the faucet itself. Lowes, Home Depot, carry the repair kits for these faucets at a reasonable price. And they usually include the allen wrench and wrench to remove the handle and the body parts. And they are relatively inexpensive. Around 4 to 6 dollars. Its an easy fix.

I have a aquasource faucet and the top button is stuck


Unfortunately, Aquasource is an imported faucet by Lowe's, and parts are not easy to get. You might want to visit a Lowe's and see if they have a replacement diverter unit for this faucet. If you can get one, it should take about 10 minutes to install, then you'll be like new again.

Replace diverter in 2 handle aqua source kitchen faucet


For a dual-handle Aquasource kitchen faucet with spray hose, the following instructions will afford replacement of the diverter. These instructions specifically refer to the faucet illustrated at http://pdf.lowes.com/installationguides/6953123900358_install.pdf, and the diverter identified as part RP70007 (item 14). Note the position of notches at the top of the diverter and around the rim of the base of the diverter, either of which can be used to leverage a tool to rotate the diverter out of position. Caution: The diverters on older faucets may be exceptionally brittle and thus very difficult to remove.

1. Using a pipe wrench or similar large-mouth wrench, unscrew the base of the faucet. Wrap the base with a cloth or other protective material to prevent scratching during the process of unscrewing. The base unscrews in a counter-clockwise direction.
2. With the base removed, remove the faucet. Note that a small amount of water may drain from the faucet when removed.
3. Removal of the base reveals the top of the diverter, which is a white, plastic cylinder approximately two inches long with copper stopper in the bottom. Insert a wide, flat-blade screwdriver across the notches in the top of the diverter - but be *extremely* careful. A faucet that has been installed for some length of time may have an exceptionally brittle diverter. If the upper shaft of the diverter breaks, a pair of needle-nose pliers may be used in the notches around the *base* of the diverter. Carefully rotate the diverter counter-clockwise to remove it.
4. Insert the new diverter and screw it into place in a clockwise direction. Apply a wide, flat blade across the notches in the top of the diverter to apply slight additional pressure to tighten the diverter just beyond hand-tightness.
5. Re-insert the faucet.
6. Screw the base back into position, tightening as necessary.
7. Test the operation of the diverter by operating the cold and/or hot water faucets, then the spray handle.

I purchased the Danco 80701 "Repair Kit for Delta, Aquasource, and Glacier Bay Faucets with #70 Ball" so that I can repair a leak in my Delta kitchen faucet. The instructions on the package are...


Sounds like the old style center-control delta type faucet, rubber washers describe older type but still good. The rubber seats have holes in middle, supply water to the cylinder which diverts water to the spout, and has a seal over top of ball allowing stem for handle.

Think they are talking about flex-hose type faucet accessory getting clogged, Maybe: lift the flex-hose faucet housing off the center-control faucet body? Water to it runs directly from center-control faucet and if broken seat gets in narrow line could inhibit spray.

Kitchen faucet spout too has an O-ring under where it connects to the faucet body. Unscrew large nut where meets the faucet body unit (slip-joint pliers), once free of threads, spout should pull straight up, easy or slight tug. I use bent paper clip to remove old one trying to save it in one piece so as to get exact size (that's important) to replace, push on one side then other.

Handle won't stay up


I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

Two handle Moen kitchen faucet. Hot side handle


loctite is an excellent product,but you have to have a couple of threads for it to 'lock'! be sure handle is seated[pushed all the way on] or shop a hardware or home improvement store for a replacement screw or a 'self tapping'' screw of the proper size.
