Well it can only be 1 of 3 things, 1st can you tell if it is hot or cold water dripping?? 2nd is the handle loose can you wiggle them and 3rd how old is the faucet I know you said it is ''New" but it could be "old" stock from his shelf in which case the gaskets/O-rings could be dried out and needs to be replaced...
if loose then on top where the "c" or "H" is that cap comes off using a finger nail or small knife point pop off caps under caps there is a screw remove it but first turn off water under sink you will a bigger nut use a adjustable wrench to snug it more then try again if still leaking remove that big nut the is a washer on the bottom that will be leaking there are many sizes so you will have to buy an assortment with mixed sizes fond the two you need remove screw on bottom put new one in,,, put it all back together...
ps if you have vinger you can soak old washer but this only short term fix, replace washer

Trying to take out part number 1224 in a series 9400 m-pact valve 2 handle faucet. I have water dripping out of the stem of the faucet and I think that my o-ring may have been damaged during the...

If it's new and the valve was soldered in, the installer may have left the stems in the valve while installing. Damaged O rings and plastic parts do occur. Contact Moen and see if they will ship out the part. Give them the info they need and it will probably not cost you anything under warranty.

My new moen faucet has been leaking since it was installed i have had 2 plumbers come out to try to fix it and after a day or so I find it is leaking again ! It seems to be leaking in more than one...

If you have had 2 plumbers (I'm assuming licensed) come and take a look at the issue, and they have not been able to fix it, I would suggest returning the sink to the store that you bought it from and getting it exchanged. I've seen many things come straight out of the box not working due to manufacturing defects. This could include a sharp piece of metal pressing up against seals, and as you use the faucet, they cut and wear the seals prematurely. I would recommend you get either a new faucet or get your money back. It seems to be an issue with the faucet itself.

I have a Moen Monticello bathroom faucet. I am

Moving left to right: I am not an expert, but I have installed a fair number of faucets. Seems like a basic issue of just getting under the sink and tightening up. Make sure someone is topside to assure the faucet stays straight and does not move as you tighten up below. It is never easy to get a wrench and your hands in the proper position to tighten up the nut, but don't give up try a smaller Channel lock wrench if necessary.

How do you take a moen bathroom Model #: 84206 apart to fix a drip? Hot water side has a slow drip. Need to replace a seal. How does it come apart?

On the handle it self you should see a red and blue button plug. Remove this and you will see set screw. Remove handle, remember to shut off hot and cold water supplies under sink before you go any further.

Wobbly faucet on new elkay sink

this faucet comes with diffrent hold downs for diffrent sinks on is wider for stainless sinks the other is smaller for granite or corian sinks, it sounds like your plumber might have put the wrond spacer under the facet where it mounts to the sink,, it doesn't matter the sink or the faucet they all come with proper adapters, and I do know that moen and delta have them in the box with the faucet,,, good luck with yo people, this faucet of yours even comes with the plastic tool to put the faucet in because it has a long shank with threads on it and is hard to get a wrench on
