If you are in a hard water(high calcium content) area of the country, you can get erosion of the seat inside the fixture where the cartridge fits up against the seat. You may need to replace the seat as well. This requires taking it apart to get to the seat. Sometimes, it is best to get a new fixture in the long run.

Moen two handle kitchen faucet cannot remove cartridge


I am not familiar with that particular model but on most moens there is a type of clip that looks somewhat like a washer in the shape of a horseshoe..... it slides into a groove in the stem of the faucet....... take a wire brush and wd 40 and clean the area ( i am assuming you have removed the faucet handle and crown btw turn water off under sink hot and cold) take a jewlers screw driver and try to slide down between the main part of the faucet and the cartridge.. you can also use a needle nose pliars to get it out then take pliars or vice grips and grab stem and pull out

Moen single handle faucet, when turning off the water it drips on the cold side


Sephie,

You have a very common problem. The short answer is you need to replace the Cartridge, which is Moen part # 1225.

I have seen that so many times with that particular faucet... I'm not a big fan of Moen in general-- but that aside.... That Faucet is one of their "economy" lines and has a long history of giving trouble. I would suggest to you that the best solution would be to replace the faucet with a nice quality Delta, or equivelant-- Delta style and those that use the same parts such as many Peerless and others ARE VERY SIMPLE TO SERVICE, and the PARTS ARE PRETTY CHEAP AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE at Lowe's or Home Depot. Moen cartridges are expensive and can be hard to find the exact match as there are many models that look almost identical. You can get the part free from Moen, but that takes time and can be a hassel.

Hope this helps, Let me know if you have further questions! Good Luck!

Dripping bath faucet circa 1985. Can't ID model but appears to have 2 screws holding front of casting to main body for disassembly . Faceplate is square in shape and black in color HELP!


  • 1 Close the hot and cold water valves in the cabinet beneath the sink to shut the water supply off to the bath faucet.
  • 2 Remove the bath faucet's handle to access the valve cartridge. The faucet handle is removed by first detaching the handle's insert cap using the tip of a screwdriver or utility knife to expose the handle screw. Remove the handle screw with a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the handle off the valve cartridge stem.
  • 3 Loosen and remove the cartridge valve nut with an adjustable wrench. Some faucet models retain the valve cartridge with a snap ring and are removed with snap ring pliers.
  • 4 Pull the old valve cartridge out of the bath faucet base, using pliers.
  • 5 Insert the new replacement valve cartridge into the faucet housing and replace the nut or snap ring removed in Step 3, using an adjustable wrench or snap ring pliers.
  • 6 Reinstall the faucet's handle onto the valve cartridge post, then secure the handle's screw, using a screwdriver.
  • 7 Replace the insert cap into the handle to cover the handle's screw hole.
  • 8 Turn on the hot and cold water valves beneath the sink to restore the water supply.

    I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


    If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

    Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

    I have a Mico 7777 Kitchen faucet that was purchased in 2001.It has become difficult to move from side to side. Do we need to replace the cartridge in the faucet and if so how much does it cost and how...


    it may not be nesesary to replase the cartridge you could just have some lime or sediment build up in the faucet a bad cartridge would effect your handle not your spout turn the hot and cold water off under the sink,pull the bonnet or cap off and the spout should just lift up take care not to damage o-rings pulling and reinstalling spout check for debris clean and replace spout to insure not damaging o-ring try putting a little vaseline on them 1.it will help go on easier 2.it will help to lubricate the swivel of the spout replace the cap turn your water back on. if your cartridge is bad your faucet will drip or constantly run

    Leaking faucet


    Hi johnparker,

    The dripping is caused by the ceramic cartridge leaking. It is a non servicable part.

    Couldn't find the model number listed but here is a Talia schematic.

    http://www.grohecatalog.com/product/25596/

    The replacement cartridges are list as 4 and 5 in for hot and one for cold. Also consider replacing part #7 it is a seat.

    Good Luck and please rate this response, Phil
