If it does have a cartridge, replacing it would only help it stop dripping out the faucet or from around the handle. A leak underneath is most likely to be a failure of the seal from the supply pipe to the faucet, from corrosion and/or hardening of the rubber seal that is part of the supply pipe connection. Shut off the supply. (Hopefully you have a shutoff valve under the sink.) And remove the supply pipe/tube/hose. This is very hard to do without a basin wrench. (All hardware stores have them, and they are pretty cheap.) Take the supply pipe to the hardware or home improvement store to select a replacement. Other than the material and construction of the pipe itself, and the length, there are only a couple of different fitting configurations.

How do i fix my leaky moen bathroom faucet?


Moen faucets are easy to repair. The cartridge you're looking for is most likely the #1224 cartridge, sold in pairs, and available at almost any home improvement store.

Shut the water off, unscrew the handle, remove the nut that holds the old, cartridge in, swap it out, and put the handle back. The whole job should take you about ten minutes.

Good Luck!

I need replacement part for bath sink cartridge 4570


The Moen 1225 or 1200 cartridges are the same except the 1200 is brass in stead of plastic. They will fit most Moen single handle faucets. If it is a two-handle faucet, the 1224 cartridge will fit most two-handle models unless it is a fancy widespread faucet more than about 15 years old. I don't know the model numbers for those cartridges. All of these cartridges require a removal tool if you can't get them out with a pair of pliers.

Facet leaking


Hi,
You can purchase a replacement cartridge for that... most hardware stores or places like Home Depot or Lowe's will have them. Take in the old acrtridge or the model of thefaucet. Some of them need a special puller to get the old cartridge out..

Leaking bathroom faucet


These single handle faucets tend to need the internal "O - rings" changed every couple of years. Find your model # and take it to Home Depot or Lowes or some similar store and find the "kit" compatible with your faucet. Some kits have a cartridge, some have springs, O - rings, etc. The kit will have instructions on how to remove tha old one and install the new one.

There will be a set screw on back or under cap on top. Remove handle, next use a phillips screw driver to remove the part that holds on to the cartridge. Then a bonnet that unscrews leaving the cartridge easily repaired or replaced. And there you have it.

I have two leaking bathroom faucets. Hansgrohe 06042. I replaced both faucet valves from Hans part no. 94009000. They BOTH still leak steadily. They worked flawlessly for two years.


where are they leaking from?
if they're leaking from underneath, repace the suply lines [between the valve and faucet]. if if from the faucet itself replace your cartrage[s].
