If you are talking about a kitchen faucet. I would guess that you either have WAY too much water pressure or you are missing the little c-ring clip on your spout. Most are round plastic ring with split on one side. Some are metal. They usualy fit in one of the slots on the end of your spout. Hope this helps.

There is a leak where the spray arm connects to the water faucet under the sink. The connection is a snap connection rather than a screw on type.

With this type of faucet when you push the 2 pieces together there should be a small rubber O ring, if this is not in the correct position there won't be a proper seal. If you have some vasalien rub it on the O ring and it should help it fit better, it also should click when you push it together.

Faucet leaks when water is turned on at the spout base. I took the set screw out of the back but can,t remove it to access the orings or seals

better turn off the main line first, screw the ring again putting some extra pressure because usually rings are tighten so have to replace the base of the faucet.

The water pressure pushes the faucet spout out of the faucet assembly. I tried to screw it back in without success.

I've actually never heard of this problem before. Sounds to me like it is a cheap faucet and replacing it with a higher quality one is the best solution.

I have a WH15664 which all of a sudden the gooseneck spout stopped completely. My sprayer works fine. There is absolutley no water comming out of the spout. I can not understand why. can you tell me what...

Try cleaning out the aerator assembly. Not totally familiar with model but the cap end of he gooseneck should unscrew or you may have a screw in insert. If cap unscrews, carefully try to remove the screen and flow reduction insert and clean thoroughly and replace. If cap end does not unscrew look at head where water would normally come out. If notice raised ribs and notches see if you can use a straight edge to un screw the aerator. They make special wrenches but I can remove mine with a butter knife edge. If you get water with aerator removed it's definitely clogged up. I've bet this is the case as sprayer and spout are typically ported from same point in faucet assembly. I had a tennants garden tub faucet that did the same thing and the aerator on the spout was clogged with trash.

Water flow is too powerful..

I got you, you want a screen to be put on the spout!
check the inside of the spout. there may be a internal thread, if it is, then you can get a external thread screen from home depot.
