Twin Lever Kitchen Tap

The tap was purchased in B&Q. It has 2 lever taps at the side and long curve spout in between. When I turn the water on the spout springs off the connection as if the pressure was pushing it off. I have pushed it back in but I now need to hold onto the spout everytime the tap is turned on or water will spray from the base! Can someone help me fix this?

Taggy,

Most of these spouts are held on by a base nut or a top nut. Some have a clip inside which is released from below. It is possible that a small set screw that sits behind the spout should be holding it together. It may be loose. It is also possible that something is broken off as some of these fittings are made of plastic. What to do:

B & Q maintains a customer service operation to assist you. I note that many of the company's units have warranties of 5 years on parts and 2 on labor. I suspect they are your best source of help. You need to find out if something is broken or missing from your current installation. They'll send you a diagram to assist, I suspect.

Have crane tap set , two taps and a spout with an in and out lever to shower or fill tub.I have no cold water when tap set is in place, when i remove the tap set from the fixture i have water flow.


Look inside the faucet handle for damage. A cracked handle would need replacing, as it cannot grip the faucet stem. If the ridges inside the handle are worn, the handle cannot connect with the stem and control the faucet.

Inspect the end of the faucet stem for damage. The tip of the stem should have ridges that connect with the ridges inside the faucet handle

Blanco Eye Kitchen tap cold water is leaking from tap[ WHEN TURNED OFF. I have remove the allen screw that secures the the cold lever but I cannot remove the leaver


Hello doy.. get a can of WD-40 penetrating lubricant and spray it on the seam connecting the lever and the body. It will penetrate within an hour or so. Repeat if necessary.

Also use a plastic head or a rubber head hammer to tap it up.

Single handle Spray faucet leaks at it's base, leaking under the kitchen sink


If you still have the receipts from the purchase call Moen directly as they warranty their faucets for life and will send you the replacement parts you need. If you need to purchase replacement parts then you can purchase a Moen single lever repair kit from your local hardware store which should run you around $10. Go the the Moen website and look for your model. They generally have an exploded view of every one of their models that will assist you in dissassembling the tap without any surprises. Reassemble the tap with the new o-rings etc installed and test.

The entire faucet is lifting off and spraying water at the joint when the lever is activated and water is being used,do I need to call a plumber to repair this. It seems that the faucet cannot be screwed...


No you do not need a plumber,
below under the sink, there are two valves, One for Hot ,One for Cold.
Turn them to the right.make sure they are turn all the way with a little pressure at the end. Now the kitchen has no water.
With a wrench ot pliers remove the water hoses, There may be a little water left in the hose so don't panic.
Now this may be a little harder.
Put yourself all the way under the sink,with you on your back.
Do you see the taps. There may be a fitting with screws. remove screws and fitting. You should be able to remove the whole Tap.
With you new tap... Follow their instruction.
When you are putting the hoses back on.. make sure they are slightly snug.
We don't want it to leak again.
Turn you water back on and slowly turn on your taps.

Leaking Kitchen Tap


I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout

if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)

turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink
remove the set screw and lift off the lever

at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place

temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking

if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install

If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink

once you have determined which it is (hot or cold)
take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise

be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem

remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end

take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)

go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut
install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks

good luck

Leaking single lever kitchen tap


on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck

Leaking Kitchen Tap


yes your right it's the seal inside and it can be replaced you should shut the water off after all why make a mess when you don't have to. however I'm not familiar with this typ of faucet. you more than likely be able to get help from your local area hardware store when you purchase your gasket for replacement.
