There is a plastic button on the bell of the handle right by the base of the lever. It might be blue and red for hot and cold or it may be the same finish as the faucet. Remove the plug and tighten the allen screw. It takes a 3/32" allen key. If this doesn't tighten it adequately, you must remove the handle, and gently tighten the plastic retaining nut with an adjustable wrench or a channel lock pliers. The adj wrench is recommended over the pliers.

We have a moen 7594E. Lower water pressure than old standard Moen.


The pull out spout/spray has backflow preventers built into the hot and cold supply lines coming from the body of the faucet. The backflows have a tendency to lower the flow rate because of the additional restriction they cause.

I have a Moen Ascent kitchen faucet. The chrome handle that is attached somehow to the control valve underneath has come loose. How is the handle attached to the valve and what is the remedy?


Moen kitchen faucet handles in this series are held onto the cartridge stem with a set screw. First turn off the water supply to the faucet. You need to move the handle until you can see the small plug button that covers the set screw. This is ~3/4" from the edge of the handle. Remove the plug with a small screwdriver or other levering tool and adjust the handle if needed to get it on the cartridge stem. Then find the appropriate Allen wrench to tighten the screw. (It may be a 3/32" but this isn't always true.) To test if you have it tight, turn on the water and see if the water is easy to turn on and off. Turn off the water and replace the plug button. Then turn the water one last time.

To see a parts diagram for a couple of models of Ascent faucets, see https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Chrome_onehandle_high_arc_pulldown_kitchen_faucet/S71708 or https://www.moen.com/support/Ascent/Ascent_Classic_stainless_onehandle_high_arc_pullout_kitchen_faucet/S71709CSL .

I hope this helps.

(Do not over-tighten the set screw. This could damage the cartridge or handle.)

Moen Kleo faucet. Handle loose, removed set screw to tighten but now no water pressure. (it worked fine before inspector came for house sale)


Something always seems to happen when an inspection is due. The handle tightening operation may have affected the cartridge inside. Back off the screw and water may return. If not, the cartridge may have to be replaced.

    I have a single lever Moen faucet where the handle is very loose and there is no button on the back side that would reveal an allen key, so I cannot tell how to tighten it back up. What should I do?


    On almost all moen single handle faucets there is no allen set screw to hold handle on. They are secured by a screw located under Moen emblem in the center of the faucet on the top. You usually can get to the handle screw by prying cover off with small blade screwdriver or point of knife blade.. Tighten screw and hopefully this will fix your problem. Thank you.

    The handle is loose. It's a single lever control. The mechanism the level connects to still works fine. No leaks, but the handle is now quite wobbly, and I don't know how to tighten it. Do I pry out that...


    Remove the plastic red and blue insert or what ever color yours is under the handle in the front. Tighten the set screw with an allen wrench. Be careful not to over tighten or the screw will break off.
