Open Question

Glacier Bay kitchen faucet with pull down sprayer model #883-432. Hot and cold connections are leaking. When tightened together, home end hits nut on faucet end and cannot be tightened any further. Should there be a washer at the base of the home end? Seems like that would solve it. Tried silicone tape, no go.

SOURCE: trouble connecting supply lines--leaking/Hansgrohe kitchen faucet

You are probably missing the feral (sp?) that belongs behind the nut on the compression fitting. The feral looks like a coper or plastic ring for your finger that is also slightly coned shaped....http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.plumbingmall.net/catalog/ferrules_thumb.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.plumbingmall.net/servlet/Categories%3Fcategory%3DPIPING%2BSYSTEMS:PLUMBING:MANABLOC%2BACCESSORIES&usg=__EswgpaP-RUncJqHYNZbLDFsAw0E=&h=77&w=83&sz=2&hl=en&start=3&um=1&tbnid=qzemJ2Zin0P1MM:&tbnh=70&tbnw=75&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplumbing%2Bferrule%26ndsp%3D18%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dcom.ubuntu:en-US:official%26hs%3Dhh9%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1

SOURCE: Sprayer hose leaks at the base of the faucet after sprayer replacement and thread tape application

Make sure the internal washer is intact and there is no damage to the parts that you are connecting together. Also, do not use too much tape....one or two winds is enough and wind in in the direction of the action of the female connector (clockwise) so you don't bunch it up in one spot.

I have a glaicer bay kitchen faucet and when the water is turned on there is thumping. When I take the sprayer off the thumping stops.... is therea probelm with the sprayer?


to reduce the 'thumping' noise, open the supply valves more. If they are already at maximum, you may have a restriction further up the supply lines. Thumping is typically caused by unbalanced flow around the seat and washer, usually caused by restrictions.

There could be loose hardware inside at the base of the goose neck. You will have to remove your carefully installed faucet and take a look inside to find out.

Faucet is leaking from the cold water line inside the faucet. it is a danze lazio pull out kitchen faucet


Hello
First shut off water to faucet.There should be a allen screw that holds the faucet together near the top back of the handle,lossen this and pull top off.

Next take some pliers and tighten down the lock nuts to compress the washers,do this gently.

Reassemble,water should stop leaking.

Glacier bay kitchen faucets with 2 handles and a sprayer


to be honest with you if there is a problem the glacier bay brand is from home depot and they are usualy around 20 to 30 dollars the replacement stems are usualy 15 to 40 depending on the part plus the hours ur gonna spend fixing it your better off with a full replacement. if replaced keep in mind you might want to replace the supliy lines to the faucet with stainless steal suply lines to ensure no leaks and if your shut offs are old dont touch them shut off your water main and drain down your house by opening all the faucets and shower valvs in your house then drain at the lowest point in the house weather it be a sink in the basement or an out side faucet once the supliy lines and faucet is in place then close all the faucets you opened and slowly turn on the water to your house slowly and this will ensure you dont have any leeks from your shutoffs good luck  your friendly plumber

Kitchen faucet Installation


Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
