Question about Plumbing
I have a single handle moen kitchen faucet. I just purchased the house and it has set with the water off for 4 years. There is water to the faucet but no water comes out. I have taken it apart, lubricated it and put it back together and still now water. What is wrong?
Hi Steve-If the faucet is definitely getting water (making sure all the cut-off valves are open along the way), the Moen single handle faucets all use a replaceable cartridge that is available at home supply stores. This cartridge is what regulates the pressure and the temperature of the water coming out of your faucet. This is likely faulty. You'll need to close the supply valves (hot and cold) underneath your sink prior to replacing.

Testimonial: "I bought the replacement cartridge and it still does not let water through. I have come to the conclusion that the line from the main cartridge to the end of the nozzle has to be plugged."

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

The top pops off and there is a crew under it. It's all pretty easy but when you put it back together you have to do a tricky angle kick with the handle. Watch carefully as you take the handle off and put it on and off several times to see what is needed. If you do it wrong the handle sets on top of the black thing and doesn't work right, The cartridge in the faucet pulls out with difficulty if you have hard water. There is a little clip near the the top that holds the cartridge in. You should be able to get a repair kit that has the cartridge and new O-rings for the spout.

You can try to rotate the first plastic ring to the left of center a few teeth, this will let the handle advance alittle more to the hot side.
