Make sure the sprayer is clean of debris. IF YOU HAVE HARD WATER, soak in CLR overnight. If sprayer is clear then its the diverter which is more indepth thru the stem.

If it's leaking at sprayer, and not the base where connected to hose, try this. Buy a bottle or jug of CLR. (calcium, lime, rust ) from hardware store, and pour enough in a bowl that will submerse sprayer in it. When you go to bed, or out for a few hours, turn off both taps (obviously) and relieve all pressure as well from sprayer. Now wrap an elastic around the handle of the sprayer so that lever is depressed, and submerse it in the bowl of CLR, and let it work overnight or at least for a few hours. Next Day, or Later, remove elastic from sprayer, and try it a few times and see if leak has stopped. Quite often you get calcium build up on internal washer/seal, and this will clean it off. If no CLR, you can try vinegar as well, but I find CLR better. If it appears better but not stopped completely, give it another treatment.

We had this same problem. We twisted off the sprayer cap to access the diverter valve under the trigger. The nylon diverter was stuck down into the cavity and was not popping out when the trigger was released. We pushed it down several times with needle nosed pliers to release it then applied a drop of household oil lubricant with the valve pushed all the way in. Then pushed and released several times to work the lubricant around the sides of the valve. After re-assembly, the sprayer seems to work perfectly again.
