How to fix Moen Banbury model 87690SRS kitchen faucet ?
There is no way to tighten spout from top of sink. If you slide in cabinet and look up at the bottom of the faucet (spout ) you will see a nut on the threaded shaft of the spout hanging below in cabinet. With a basin wrench, kind of like a spring loaded pair of channel locks with a long extension arm and t-handle, you get it around the nut and tighten it clock wise on the shaft. You may have to disconnect the faucet valve ( handle part of faucet) from the bottom of the spout before tightening. Note...be sure that the jaws of your basin wrench are firmly around the nut only as not to mar and gouge the threads on the spout shaft. It is also helpful to have someone else hold the spout in position at the top side in order to tighten it properly. Some of the moen models (depending on place of purchase) may have a nut with set screws in it. You get the nut as tight as you can by hand and with a screw driver tighten the screws which will be visible and the heads will be facing down at the sides of the spout shaft. If you can't seem to locate what I am describing post again and I will try to locate a diagram for you.
