Finding brand specific replacement parts in stock for a 20+ yo faucet without a Mod.# is quite the task, implying that you would have to do a side by side compareson/inspection. If in fact that part is not obsolete.
Maybe you should consider replacing the entire faucet.
Good luck

If you look at the exploded view of the faucet, it shows that the cartridge is not threaded so you should be able to just pull it straight out.

Ll800-BN faucet drips after water is turned off need to know how to make adjustment


More than likely, the cartridge will need to be replaced. I am not familiar with this particular faucet. However, most faucets are very similar in the breakdown procedures.
Be sure, first, to make sure water is turned off at the shut-off valves under the sink. Next, you should find a set screw on the handle; this is usually removed with an allen wrench. The screw is typically located on the handle of the faucet; often times, the set screw is covered by a small plug that is either red and blue, or will match the finish of the faucet.
Once you remove the handle, you may find another screw-typically it is a #2 Phillips screw, or a nut that loosens to gain access to the cartridge. Once you remove that assembly, the cartridge will need to be removed. Also, there may be a slide clip holding the cartridge; if it has that clip, you will find it just under the stem of the cartridge and it is usually found closest to the wall side of the faucet. Manufactures make cartridge removal tools, as sometimes the cartridge can be difficult to pull out. However, more often than not, I use a pair of channel locks. If you choose that method, just be sure you do not scratch the finish on your faucet. Keep in mind, it may take some force to remove the cartridge.
If you order a new cartridge for your faucet beforehand, the new cartridge will come with replacement instructions.
This is a very simple procedure for a handy homeowner to tackle. If you call the services of a plumber, I expect your cost to be anywhere from $75-$125. Again, just be certain that water is turned off first.

Leaky faucet


If your faucet is dripping out of the spout. This is how to repair it if you have a faucet with this type of cartridge system

For details see diagram attached.
In the order you see. Valve nut, o-ring (may or may not be used in your valve) Valve Cartridge, Cup Washer and Spring.

Turn off the water to the valve at the water supply under the sink if you have shut-off valves there. Otherwise you will have to turn off the water to the whole house. Open some of the other faucets in the house if you have to turn the whole house water supply off at the water meter valve to reduce the line pressure. Open the handles of the faucet you are working on as well after you turn of the water either way.

If it has two handles there should be a set screw that holds the handle on. You will need the appropriate allen wrench for the set screw. Loosen that and wiggle the handle off the valve stem carefully. There is a brass nut that holds the valve cartridge in the valve body. Using a small pair of channel lock pliers or the appropriate box wrench. Loosen and remove that brass nut. Once that is off, grasp the valve stem with the channel locks and gently wiggle the valve as you pull upward. There will be some suction that wants to hold it in so this may take some finessing to loosen and remove. Be firm but gentile. Make sure you pay attention to the position the cartridge is in so you can place the cartridge back in the same position it was when you removed it. Otherwise, the handle will not be in the proper position when you put it back on.
Once you have the cartridge out. There should be a small black cup washer that sits in a hole on top of a spring at the bottom of the inside of the valve body. You should replace both the spring and cup washer.
You can find them at your local hardware store or big box DIY store.
I use a real small screwdriver to lift the washer and spring out.
When you go to place the new cup washer and spring back in place.
Place the spring in the whole with the larger side down. Then, to place the cup washer back. Place the cup washer on the small screwdriver and hold it with your index finger and lower it to the whole over the spring. Once you have the cup washer over the spring. You have to get the wider bottom part of the washer into the hole. Holding the washer down with your index finger. Use the small screwdriver tip to push the side of the washer into the hole working your way around the washer. Pressing the sides of the washer inward so the bottom edge pops into the hole over the spring. Once you fell the washer pop in and seat. Push straight down to get it fully placed. Then reverse the procedure you used above to remove the cartridge. Paying careful attention to the position the cartridge was in when you removed it and replacing it in the exact same position. There are o-rings or an o-ring around the cartridge so you'll have to wiggle the cartridge and press down to get it to seat level. Place the nut back over the cartridge and tighten down firmly. Replace the handle and tighten the set screw.

How to fix a leaky Moen faucet that leaks at the spout ,which is separate from the handle?


These faucets can leak in three different places:

  1. Internally at the valve seat
    You'll see water dripping from the spout. This means the rubber washer is worn or damaged. To replace the washer, remove the decorative cap from the handle. Remove the retaining screw and pull off the handle. Remove the decorative cover, called an escutcheon, if there is one. Unscrew the packing nut counterclockwise. Unscrew the valve stem and remove it. Remove the screw that holds the rubber washer in place. Because these washers come in many shapes and sizes, you'll want to take the old one to the hardware store and buy an exact replacement. Be sure to buy two washers so you'll have one for the other valve. Replace the washer and reassemble the faucet.
  2. Around the handle
    If you see water coming from below the handle, the packing nut is leaking. Older faucets have a string-like graphite packing material wrapped around the stem. Newer faucets use an O-ring. First try tightening the packing nut clockwise... about one-half turn. If this doesn't stop the leak, remove the packing nut and replace the packing or O-ring; then reassemble the faucet. If the valve is using the graphite packing material, it might be a clue that you should shop for a new faucet.

  3. Between a pivoting spout and the body
    The spout might be held in place with a packing nut, similar to the faucet stem, or it might have a nut at the top of the spout. In either case, remove the spout and replace the packing material or the O-ring seal. Then reassemble the faucet.
Single lever faucets also are known as "washerless" faucets. They are easier to repair than compression faucets after you determine what type of faucet you have. There are three types of washerless faucets: ball, ceramic disk and cartridge.
Leaks are evident in two places... dripping from the spout and seeping from around the spout where it joins the body of the faucet.
Leaks from the spout indicate that the ball, disk or cartridge is leaking. To repair, turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle. The handles on ball-type faucets are held in place with a setscrew that requires an Allen wrench to loosen. Ceramic disk and cartridge-type handles usually are held in place by a screw hidden beneath a cap.
On ball and ceramic disk-type faucets, remove the ball or disk and replace the seals. You can buy replacement kits for these faucets at the hardware store or home center.
On cartridge-type faucets, remove the spout and pull out the retainer clip that holds the cartridge in place. To remove the cartridge, pull on the cartridge stem with a twisting motion. If it resists, install the handle so you can a better grip on the cartridge to pull it out. Take the cartridge to the hardware store or home center and purchase an exact replacement kit.
Reassemble the faucet according to directions.
Leaks at the spout-to-body joint indicate an O-ring failure. Disassemble the faucet as described above. Remove the spout sleeve and replace the O-rings. It's a good idea to replace these seals if you have the faucet disassembled for repair of the ball, disk or cartridge.

Tap needs new ''O'' ring on swivelling neck


Usually there is a retaining nut at the base of the spout that unscrews. It looks like apart of the faucet. Once you unscrew the nut, you can pull out the spout exposing two washers that can be replaced. If I had a picture of the faucet, I woul know exactly what to tell you. I'm just using an explanation that are for most faucets. Good luck!

Kitchen sink keeps dripping...how and what do I need to do to stop the dripping


Is this a single handle faucet or a double handle? If it's a single handle, you have to turn the water off then remove the handle. The set screw for this should be under a little plastic plug under the handle near the base of the handle. After you remove the handle, remove the housing cap to expose the valve ball. Under the valve ball are 2 small circular washers and springs. Pull them out and replace them. If it is a cartridge style faucet like a Moen, then you remove the u shaped retaining ring and pull the cartridge out.

If it is a double handle faucet, remove the handle and using a pair of pliers or a crestent wrench remove the stem. You will find the washer at the base of the stem held on by a screw. It could also be a washerless stem and in that case you will need to replace the whole stem.

If you have anymore questions, just respond to the post and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

How to replace cartridge on blanco single handle


Somewhere around where the handle fixes to the tap should be a grubscrew of some kind undoing this will allow the handle to be removed this will give you access to the cartridge which can then be removed with the correct socket, obviously you will need to turn off the water supply to the tap first!!
