If the cartridge has a gasket, it should also be replaced. Another common problem in hard water areas is the buildup of lime. See if there are deposits which may cause a bad seal and, therefore, a leak. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: rohl 3810 faucet nut not engaging threads

Hi murphygm,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have replaced a leaking Rohl cartridge in your kitchen faucet, but when you
replace the nut holding down the cartridge, the threads of the nut do not
engage. You have tried to push hard down on the cartridge while you turn the nut,
but to no avail.

Assuming you have the correct cartridge, I find it helpfull to take pictures with my cell (easily deleted later) as I disassemble to make sure I'm getting the new one in exactly right because there are only two reasons why the new cartridge won't go all the way in. 1 It's the wrong cartridge or
2 something's not right. Take the new one out and check that everything is correct, it's easy to make a small mistake. That's it.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

SOURCE: My Delta Faucet Leaks

Check that we were looking at same parts diagram, but I would say RP-70 Ball assy., as well as RP-4993 Seats & springs . If it's only dripping, just seats and spring will usually get you by, but if they are sending parts, free of charge, or ball assy., isn't too expensive, I'd change it too. I have had some luck with removing ball assy, cleaning it well with fine steel wool, then removing seals, and springs, stretching spring slightly, to add more pressure to seal, clean seal, then dab on a little vaseline to seals, and re-assemble.

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.

My kitchen faucet has a very slow leak. What can


It is an easy fix, get the make off the faucet, go to the hardware store and match it up to a new cartridge, turn off the water, pull the old cartridge, or pull it first and take it with you to match up, then make the swap, no more drip. Some faucets have rubber seals, not the cartridge, same thing though, just replace the seals, and then some older faucets have rubber seats in the handles, same thing, pull out the old ones, replace, if the metal is corroded, you can get it reseated, or replace the whole thing.
