SOURCE: Moen single lever kitchen faucet leaking at base

check underneath spout ... if is plastic then is a "less expensive" model and the base and some internal parts may be also made of plastic. Is it a model 7100,7400 or 7600? this appears on stem on opposite side of spout... The base may be "out of round" (or "eccentric") from many yearsand may continue to leak even after replacing bottom o-ring. I have learned that if the faucet is older and plastic, advise the person to invest the money in a new Moen faucet: if you are paying someone to do the work, save time & money by having them make the switch instead of tryting to fix w/ a new o-ring, if you want to try to dis-assemble faucet and replace o-ring:

While you are changing o-ring might as well replace cartridge, get cartridge form same place you get o-ring, cartridges are supposed to be free (depending on hardware store) ...someone there should be able to help w/ dissasembly .. i hope ..

Plug drain(s) add some warm water to sink to be able to wash and rinse parts if needed, shut water off, relieve pressure by turning tap on ... plug drains!!! (tiny screws love drains...)

Most MOEN single handles: just pull top off straight up, most are just press fit on. This exposes screw. Before taking screw out make sure you have a clear area to set parts in order of removal taking care to remember alignment and order. Remove screw ...

Internal parts are usually threaded plastic so go easy on things ... unscrew retainers, remove lever control making note on how it engages the cartridge etc... this helps you figure out re-assembly

pull entire spout housing straight up (might resist a bit if crudded up) hold up to light and see if out of round.. you'll now see the brass interior...pinch out o-ring and replace. Silicone lubricant may help (get from same place as o-ring, cart. they should have little free packs..) slide spout housing back over ... re-assemble all in reverse, do not over-tighten plastic retainers, hand-tight ok .. if still leaks

might want a new one ... hope this helps

SOURCE: Moen kitchen faucet model 7430 leak

cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.

SOURCE: danze kitchen faucet spout difficult to move from

o-rings in the spout need to be greased or replaced...use silicon grease if you are greasing them....not petroleum based product.

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

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.

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.

Please recommend a sink to use with moen 7437 I need to use double sink


Hi, W/D here.
Whether it is surface or undermounted, My recommendation is to purchase the heaviest grade (gauge) of metal if installing stainless steel. If you are putting in an enameled sink, Kohler makes some very good ones.
Best regards, --W/D--

Can't tighten single handle moehn kitchen faucet


there is supposed to be a nut with a washer under the sink in the center, the metal plate is just for decoration, the nut and washer have to be installed before the sprayer is attached the stem that it connects to has threads on it for the nut your faucet should have came with a long socket made of plastic to install the nut

Moen 7065 leaking at base of lever control in kitchen faucet


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.
