Sounds like you may have clogged the little screens at end of spout try unscrewing and see what happens if not you may be suffering from the returned part open box syndrome

    Leaky faucet


    This is generally due to a loose or faulty cartridge. To fix:

    1. Turn off water supply valves under sink.

    2. Block the sink drain to avoid losing small parts.

    3. Remove faucet handle. It is attached by a set screw, an odd size (I actually used a T9 torx screwdriver successfully, even though the set screw is hex head, since I did not have a matching allen key). The set screw is quite far into the handle, ~3cm, through a hole in the bottom of the handle. Depending on your countertop layout, you may have to actually remove the entire faucet from the countertop in order to get access to it, in which case follow the appropriate parts of your faucet installation directions in reverse.

    4. Remove dome. It will come off with a gentle turn/pull.

    5. Check the tightness of the exposed large hex nut. This is the piece that holds the cartridge in place. If you are lucky, it is just loose, and that's your problem; otherwise you will need a new cartridge.

    6. Unscrew that nut, remove. Pull out the cartridge.

    7. Replacement cartridges may be found at your local Moen dealer, or may be ordered directly from Moen +1-800-Buy-Moen. Parts are free due to the lifetime warranty. Part #1255 includes the cartridge, cartridge nut, and set screw. The nut must be changed with the cartridge (presumably due to its wear characteristics).

    To reassemble:

    8. If you have it, place a very small amount of plumber's silicone lubricant on the back of the cartridge, on the rubber seals around the three holes.

    9. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly. The cartridge only goes in one way, due to three guiding channels on its perimeter.

    Enjoy!

    The spray handle works but the faucet does not. water trickles out of the faucet...spray handle is leaking under the sink. faucet is only 1 year old.


    wow need a new faucet?? NO just kidding

    Ok the water not running out of the faucet. that is the screen on the end of the spout, just un screw it clean it and your good to go.The leak on the spray, pull the spray out and run it and look at the connection right there on the handle.

    if there is no leak, get an other person to run the sprayer and you take a flash light and look up at the bottom of the faucet.and see if you can see the leak from there. The hose should attach to a brass section coming out of the bottom of the facucet, It may be it just got loose and you need to re tighen it. Now yo will need a basin wrench to do that . If yo dont have you you can buy a cheap on ( which is all you need) from a hardware store,

    Also if you take your hand and feel around the the bottom of the sink where all the pipe come down it might be the fauect itself.

    Good hunting be safe protect your eye

    When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


    Hi seawitch678,

    If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

    Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

    I have a moen pull out kitchen faucet that leaks


    You have a bad internal o-ring or the sprayer o-ring is leaking, if you look under the sink turn it off and then turn it back on, if you see it leaking out the center shft where the water pipes go into then the faucet may have a broken pipe or loose pipe. check and tell me where it's leaking at. You can buy kits to repiar them they are inexpensive.
