Do I have to disconnect the water hoses under the sink when I turn the neck counter-clockwise? I am on my 2nd replacement faucet.

You do not have to disconnect the water hoses, but you do have to turn the water valves off before loosening any parts on the faucet.

buy a basin wrench, slip it on the large nut on each side of the faucet under the cabinet and tighten. The wrench head flips from one side to the other for tightening or loosening.

Fix a loose faucet model 989 the nut underneth sink keeps coming loose

Was this faucet installed recently? Most faucets come with nylon washers that are to be installed before threading on the nut. These act as a lock washer, preventing the nut from becoming loose.

Moen troubleshooting

A common problem with kitchen faucets is the o-rings that seal it become dry. Although they are somewhat lubed at the factory when installing them the installed wipes down the area to clean it wiping off the lubricate. At first the faucet works fine but over time the lack of lube causes the o-rings to become sticky. The easiest solution is to pull the faucet apart and purchase some fuacet lube and lube up the o-rings and parts and re-assemble. If for some reason you have hard water this can cause buildup of deposits and in turn dry out the o-rings and make the surfces rough which can cause the same problem you are having. Again disassemble and clen, lube reassemble.

Faucet hex-screw not tightening correctly

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.

Base of faucet leaks- cannot remove set screw at handle American Standard Elite kitchen faucet series 4453

if you are having trouble removing the set screw make sure you are using the correct size allen wrench and confirm that it is a allen screw and not a trox screw. After doing this try tighten the screw slightly before loosening it. This should break it loose.

On our kitchen faucet, the "hot" handle keeps

I can't help with the part as I don't know from you post what faucet you have however the tightness deal can be fix simply by taking the screw out and put some tread lock (get at any auto store) on the threads screw it back in and let it set over night and that should do it. There are different grades of thread lock do not use the strongest holding grade it will make the screw very hard to get loose if you ever need to.

The base keeps coming boose. i keep tightening and

If you just need to keep the nut from coming loose, try LocTite Blue (assuming metal thread and nut). You should be able to buy it at the local hardware store.

I had the same problem with a slightly different Price Pfister model sink. My problem was primarily because the sink basin was thin and not "beefy" enough to support the faucet. The whole thing would flex because the metal was thin and the nut would come loose.

Using wood for reinforcement down there is a bad idea (it would get wet and rot). So, plastic was the way to go.

I bought an inexpensive piece of plexiglass/lexan at the local home improvement store. A cheap plastic cutting board would work well too.

I cut a rectangle that was a couple inches wider than the the faucet holes and that would fit underneath the sink basin where the holes for the faucet were.

I marked the holes and cut them with a hole saw (Go slow, the heat from the hole saw will melt the plexi!). Cutting slightly oversize makes everything fit easier.

I put my new "reinforcing washer" in place and tightened everything down. The nut snugs up nicely against the plastic and after four months: no more flex, no more nut loosening.
