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.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

Just got the tub faucet fixed from leaking now the water will not get hot in the shower how do I fix this problem?


If its a balanced pressure shower then you most likely have installed the cartridge wrong. Remove the trim plates and rotate cartridge 90 degrees clockwise and re-istall trim plates

Hot watwer leaks from the hot side of the facet


Replace the stem assembly (ceramic cartridge) with Price Pfister service part #910-030. Be sure to turn water on briefly to flush out any debris in the valve body before installing new part. NOTE: this valve does not like old galvanized plumbing.

& Replacement Cartridge : tub faucet leaks when shower is on...


Sounds like a bad diverter. Depending on what faucet you have some are on the tub spout and some are built on the valve. Both types can be repaired or replaced. I hope this helps.

Delta RP34357 Traditional Diverter Tub Spout has been leaking around base and/or water running along bottom of spout toward wall from opening; today, whole spout blew off wall when faucet was opened only...


If this spout is less than one year old, I would contact my general contractor to get his plumber over to look at it. Most GC's (general contractors) will warrant their work for one year. If it is not under warranty, you should be able to fix this problem. Spouts do not typically blow off like that, so I am wondering if there is not an underlying circumstance. At any rate, I will assume the best and tell you how to reinstall the spout. There are several variations on spouts, but the one that is most common is a slip connection. Meaning that the spout will slide over a 1/2" copper water line protruding about 3" from the tub. After sliding the spout on, there is an allen screw on the bottom of the spout that snugs up against the copper pipe (again this is the most common type of install). If yours is different, let me know, and I will walk you through other processes. Before sliding the spout back on the copper, use plumber's putty around the opening that the copper is sticking out of. This will help to prevent water from getting behind the tub. Also, after the install; check the spout to make sure there are not any leaks. If no leaks are detected, use a clear silicone tub/shower caulk and go around the faucet. The caulk does not have to be a 1/4" bead to be effective. Run it around the spout, and using a moist towel, go back over the caulk to remove the excess. If you have done it right, you will not even notice the caulk, except for the gaps. Hope this is helpful.

HOW DO I FIX A LEAKING FAUCET ON A MOEN L3189


you need to remove the cartridge behind the handle. If it is dripping from the spout or shower head.
If you pull the handle to turn it on it is called a moentrol valve and take a number 1225 cartridge....it it just turns to turn on it is called a posi-temp valve and takes a 1222 cartridge.

Leaking water from tub spout


First you should obtain a parts brake-down instruction sheet, contained within the owners manual or downloaded from the manufactures website. With that you will have a detailed description of the removal and re-installation of that units cartridge, which upon removal you may see a build up of debris at the inlet ports or a ruptured O-ring in need of replacement.

Before any dis-assembly, turn off the hot and cold supply to the unit.

Good luck
