The ideal standard faucet in our kitchen is just like all other faucet having a handle. We use it to open or close tap water by pushing it toward right or left. The faucet is working perfectly but the problem is on the handle. It should be screw in the hole on the faucet firmly but it fell out now. It seems that the screw thread on the faucet is too worn to hold the handle. If my description is not clear, can I have an email address that I can send a photo of the faucet please? Thank you. Regards David. I tried to screw the handle back into the hole on faucet but it did stay in. Look like the screw thread at the hole on the faucet is quite worn.

You can try tapping the screw hole to a larger size and getting a new screw. Just go up machine screw size. Say a 4 to a 6.

The handle on the Ideal Standard single faucet in our kitchen fell out.


All sorts of things come to mind. Get on your computer and track the company and see if they offer replacement parts or an upgrade. Looks like you'll need to drill the hole and retap the threads. OR go down to a Michael's if you have one or any place that would sell wooden dowels. Find one that is a tad larger and whittle it to fit the hole. Use teak or something strong. It won't look stock but if you do it nicely you can stain the wood and make it look good, spray some clear on it to make it water-proof. You can also try running a tap through the threads to see if the threads can be repaired. Long shot but if you are on GREAT terms with the Powers, a small miracle would be nice ... but it CAN HAPPEN> I have run taps through some beaten threads and they have come back to life. The last option would be to have a machine shop make another steel dowel but thread it for the next size up and drill and tap the hole to match.

Handle dome keeps coming off


Sounds like the setscrew that holds it on has either worked lose and is missing or is striped and no longer tightens properly. Replace set screw if missing and or replace set screw if the set screw is striped. If the threads are stripped in the faucet body the faucet itself will need to be replaced. This usually does not fall under Moen's warranty guidlines.

If it is a single hole faucet, there should be a single nut on the threaded brass piece underneath the sink. You may need a basin wrench to get access to it if you cannot get to it with an adjustable jaw wrench. This nut normally clamps against a U shaped washer that is against the underside of the sink.

Removal of single hole kithcen faucet.


There is a bracket that slides between the threaded shaft and the bottom of the sink. There is usually a nut which is tightened up against this bracket. When this nut is loosened, the bracket will slide out. Of course, you first have to unfasten the two water supply lines. Once the bracket is removed, the two water lines which are made into the faucet are gently bent and the whole thing is removed from the top of the sink. Hope this helps.
