Take a look under the sink. The mechanical pop up has likely become disconnected from the rod that goes into the drain to control the pop up plug. You should be able to just reconnect it and the drain should work fine. If this doesn't solve the problem please let me know. Please remember to rate this solution, your feedback is important. Have a great day.

    New moen kitchen single handle. Worked for one full day. Now no water pressure.

    Unthread end of faucet (aerator) where the water comes out into sink, under the aerator is a screen & a plastic valve.It has sediment & rust which will disrupt the flow & pressure.Careful not to flush it down the drain. Tip upside down, while holding it together with finger. Flush it under the faucet. It is not uncommon to get plugged up initialy because of the new installation.

    The water supply should have no bearing on the working motion of the faucet cartridge or handle. On both models of Moen faucet, the handle needs to be hooked under the cartridge's top cam bearing. It is a bit tricky sometimes. Here's the parts view for 7300 and 7310 Moen Kitchen faucet. Parts view for 7100 Moen.

    Cannot remove handle. Allen wrench receiver is stripped. Are there any other options? Thanks!

    There is a home cleaning product called the The Works which will loosen the corrosion around the screw. Then use a screw extractor tool. You can find one at most hardware stores and home centers.
    Another solution would be to call Moen Customer Support and ask for a new handle and repair parts for free. The faucet should have a lifetime warranty. When you have the new faucet parts in hand, literally cut the handle off the faucet with a hacksaw or drill the screw out to remove the handle.
