Question about Moen Plumbing
When moving the faucet from side to side (to water both sides of the sink) it grinds and is very difficult to move. What's up?
Posted by Anonymous on
You have a calcium build up inside the barrel of the faucet. you might be able to take it apart and just clean it or you may possibly need a new cartridge. when putting it back together you will need to put some stem grease on the o-rings so as to not damage them or you will ruin the cartridge and then you will need a new cartridge. the stem grease will make a big differince even on the old cartridge if its not damaged already

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

Hot water line connected to left side of faucet? Did you replace tap set, or just cartridge? Cartridge may be out 180 degrees.

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.

There are several O-rings that you can replace. Visit Moen's website to determine your faucet and the necessary replacement parts. You can call them once you have found your faucet and ask for assistance as well. They are very helpful.

SOURCE: What makes the faucet bind?
I'm just installing the exact same faucet and I found that the side to side motion was binding if I tightened the tap too much from the bottom with the nut & "c" shaped clamp with the 2 set screws. Not sure what it could be if yours was fine & started having trouble.
