Question about Moen 7065 Vestige Single-Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray Chrome...
Underneath faucet cap, I loosened the hex-screw to lubricate and eliminate squeaking when turning faucet. Everything was fine until I tightened the hex-screw again. It I tighten too much, it faucet will not turn. If under tightened the hex screw turns when the faucet is rotated; hex is actually loosening and tightening as faucet turns. How do I fix this? Many thanks!
Anytime you remove the screw you speak of there is a donut washer/seal made of rubber or plastic underneath that must be replaced even if it looks OK to the naked eye. The screw when tightened compresses the washer/seal which is made with a consistency that allows for no residual memory to return to it\'s original shape. The problem (or what makes them work so good) with them is that they form to the underside of the screw and the inside of the screw housing to provide a seal and this formation is basically impossible to place exactly as was when reassembling they fixture. Thus in order to not have it leak the need to make it too tight is prevalent or as you say the handle will turn willy-nilly due to being loose. It is an easy fix and they are cheap. The washer/seals can be purchased at any hardware type store and it should make it easier to tighten properly without your preceding problems.
