SOURCE: Kitchen faucet continues to run water when sprayer is in use

Did he replace it because the same thing was happening? (I am guessing yes). The problem isn't with the sprayer, but with the diverter. Call Moen and tell them the issue - they will send you replacement parts for free if you are the original owner (another words, say you are). Good luck!

SOURCE: the water pressure drops rapidly when the faucet

Seems like you have some debris in the sprayer. Remove the aerator and see if there is any there or take it outside and force water into the aerator and hopefully it blows out through the inlet.

SOURCE: I have a One handle Price Pfister Kitchen Faucet

The passageways in the diverter part of the faucet are very small and can get dirt stuck in them....the diverter is a plunger like piece that will slide and stop the faucet when it senses flow from the sprayer...
The only hope of cleaning this out is to do this...
Take off the supply tubes or pipes at the hot and cold supplies... then blow compressed air....a air compressor with 100 psi air and a blow gun works best...backwards through the hose and out the supply tubes....this should blow out any built up dirt in there and get the passageway open also could try to open the faucet valves... take the aerator off the spout and try to blow through there also... just in case there is build up in there also...

I had the same problem and had to take apart the handle portion and found that there was something in the line at that point. After cleaning it I had the same pressurse as when it was new.

Garden hand pump sprayer not presssurising

There is probably a leak somewhere in the hosing or gasket. As you try to pump it up, take some soapy water and pour it around sealed areas of the sprayer. Look for bubbles as the sprayer leaks air. Also check the nozzle of the sprayer for a clog. Rinse it thoroughly with hot water until it has cleared any blockage.

The sprayer for the kitchen faucet does not have propet pressure.

Beings you replaced the sprayer, that eliminates the aerator and screen.
However, there COULD be an aerator screen at one or both ends of the flex hose the sprayer head attaches to, which might have build-up partially blocking it/them.
Finally, make sure the hose itself isn't semi-plugged.

I have a R 3830 faucet and it does not change from spray to stream, it does both as the same time. Is there a rebuild kit for this problem, or what should I do to fix.

This function relies on water pressure. Remove the sprayer from the hose and check pressure. If good flow, replace the hand sprayer. If low flow from end of hose, remove hose from underside and check pressure going into hose. You may have blockage in the hose. Hose can be replaced by calling ROHL customer service at 800.777.9762

My sprayer is new, but does not keep the pressure, any idea's? It's a 2 gal, pump up type sprayer.

Check under the lid/cover for a rubber gasket. This may have gotten unseated when putting the sprayer top on. It must form a tight seal around the lip of the sprayer top in order to keep the pressure. Alternative: Put water in the sprayer leaving some air on top to build pressure. Put a few drops of dish soap inside and gently stir. Put the cover on, and tilt the sprayer to coat all areas at the top. Start pumping and see where the bubbles come out---there is your leak. If it is near where the sprayer hose enters, and it is a permanent mount, you may have a bad seal. If the sprayer hose unscrews, you may need a new rubber washer inside. If bubbles come out of the wand, or other plastic seams, you may have a crack in the plastic. Depending on the location, you could epoxy over the crack to seal it permanently. Good luck.

Just bought the 56 oz. hand held flow master sprayer, and went to use it, and can't figure out how to use it. I filled it up to the "fill line", screwed the lid back on, proceeded to try to pump...

Just a question. Is there a pressure relief valve on your sprayer to take the pressure off when you are done spraying. If so is this valve left open so there will be no pressure when you pump?
I did this once then remembered I had opened it up. I shut it and works ok now. Is the lid sealing when you tighten it? Check the gaskets in the lid as well.

Why do I have low pressure on sprayer and still have water coming out of faucet when I am spraying.

Get the replacement parts in about 10 days FREE from PP. Call 800-732-8238. The flow is the diverter tee. I had the cartridge and aerator replaced. And then I replaced the diverter tee. I ordered the parts on a Saturday; got them the following Saturday. Below is a video to remove the diverter tee. The video is helpful, but doesn't tell you about the other 2 connections. The "spout" connection and the connection to the right (the "t" part) is simply a wiggle off. Then after those are off (with lots of water coming out - get towels ready), then you can crawl back from under the sink and get the sprayer off. The sprayer procedure is in the video (push up/in hose) then pull down gray collett. These faucets were discontinued in 2005; a plastic disconnect is now available for newer models. Also, we had to replace the cartridge and the aerator to keep it from leaking out of the handle. The problem we originally had was not having equal pressure with the faucet and the sprayer. The faucet would be running and then the pressure would go down. The sprayer would be weak when the faucet was on - never getting full pressure from the sprayer, just a trickle. It was "moody."

Removing Diverter/Quick Connect:
Dear Customer,
Thank you for contacting Price Pfister, here is a link to a video that will guide you through the steps on how to either remove the quick connect or the diverter.
You can go to PP's website and see and "Exploded View" of the model you have. If in the model number it states "XX" that is the finish - for example, mine states Marielle Kitchen Faucet "26-3NXX" The "3" is the number of holes (put a 4 in its place for 4 holes). The XX is SS for Stainless steel - even though it's chrome.

Sprayer leaking from inside handle mechanism

although it is possible that the spray head has gone bad, it is more likely that the diverter mechanism inside the kitchen faucet needs replaced. When this part is defective, it allows full pressure from the faucet to go to sprayer head even though the sprayer is not triggered. The sprayer is not designed to handle full pressure when it is not spraying.
