Faucet is getting tougher to move in all

Handle is getting tougher to move on/off or sideways and is starting to make a noise when moving. Can I take it apart and clean it, and if so, how do I do this?

Thank you,

How do I tighten the faucet handle. The handle is floppy and unless you put downward pressure on the handle when you turn it, it will continue to move from left to right

From what you have described it sounds like the stem in which the handle rests on is stripped and allowing to move from side to side.

Remove handle it has a set screw in the side of it and turn water off. Check the stem may be in need of replacing or the retaining nut that holds the stem down to counter top may be in need of tighting.

I can't get the faucet to not move from side to side after it is tightened donw on the granite vanity top. The base is tight and does not move, but the faucet part still moves a little. How can this be...

The faucet should have come with a rubber gasket which goes between the faucet body and the granite top. Make sure it's properly aligned and has not slipped out of place. Be carefull when tightening the faucet to the granite, since granite is easily cracked.

Water quits flowing

There is a little popper in the spout area. You need to remove the top handle and slide the spout off. The popper is in the main tube coming up. It.s a standard part at most big box hardware stores and it costs less than $10.

Moen T910 Kingsley two handle, whirlpool tub faucet. The hot water handle only puts out lukewarm water. The water heater is turned up and all the other faucets in the house put out scalding hot water.

if you remove the hot water handle on the faucet you can adjust the stop. if it is a newer faucet it has a built in scold guard. the directions should tell you which direction to move the stop to get hotter water

When water is on, faucet slowly moves to the back of the sink, where it can possibly flood the counter. This is a brand new faucet.

Faucet Repair

A noisy washer-type faucet is usually caused by a loose seat washer. To stop the noise, first turn off the water and take the faucet apart as described previously. If the washer is loose, tighten it or replace it. After threading the stem back into the faucet body, try moving it up and down. If it moves, the stem is worn and the entire faucet must be replaced. Some faucets are noisy due to poor design and construction. The only way to solve this problem is to replace the faucet with a quality one.
