If there is a hole on the spout itself then you should go ahead and replace th.e whole faucet. This will save you both time and money in the long run

Tip

How to repair disc-type faucets


DISC-TYPE FAUCETS

  • Disc faucets may have one or two handles. The water is controlled by openings in the two discs. When the discs are rotated to align, the water flows; when the discs are misaligned, the water shuts off. If the discs wear, the worn discs cause the faucet to leak. Simply turning the handles harder will not stop the leak.

  • To repair a leak in a two-handle disc faucet, turn off the water and remove the handle on the side that's leaking.

  • Use pliers to pull the disc assembly out of the faucet.

  • Beneath the disc unit is the seat assembly, or seal. Replacing this special O-ring may stop the leak.

  • You may need to install a whole new disc assembly for faucets that have been used over a long period of time. In this case, all moving parts of the faucet will have been replaced and should last as long as the original discs did. The parts of some disc units snap apart into a separate bonnet assembly and bottom cap.

  • To repair a leaking single-handle disc, turn off both the hot and cold water and remove the handle to expose the disc assembly. Take out the screws to lift the assembly out of the faucet.

  • You'll notice that beneath the disc unit are three O-ring seals. Though unlikely, water could be leaking between the unit and one of these seals. In this case, you may be able to stop the leak by cleaning the disc assembly and faucet body and installing a new set of seals. If that doesn't work, the entire disc unit must be replaced. This will renew all moving parts.

  • Replacing the unit is fairly simple. Place the three O-rings into their recesses in the bottom of the disc unit. Then install the unit and tighten the screws. Finally, replace the handle–and you're done!

I have a moen kitchen faucet with spray (high spicket) and a leak is developing at the bottom of the spicket. i may need a washer, but i do not have a diagram. i believe the model number is kvn01-01. thank...


If no satisfaction from Moen, hardware stores usually have "O" ring replacement kits by faucet type, and it will likely have the one you need in it.
Usually only a few dollars.

Our jameco kitchen faucet has no water pressure. also we have a slow leak on the cold water side. The faucet is only 3 years old. we took the cold side apart and there is no washers, only an o ring that...


Sounds like you may need to replace the cartridge if you have one of the late model single control models. You may get a clue as to how your faucet might be put together by finding a similar faucet on the Moen web site, and looking at their exploded parts diagram. (They are good about posting information; although some say their products are not so good; I really don't know personally)

Single lever kitchen faucet,seal broken


To address the leaking problem fast, you may replace
the whole set.
1. Shut off the main water valve.
2. Take the leaking kitchen faucet off.
3. Replace the defective kitchen faucet.
4. After replacement, open the main water valve.

Of course, you could have repaired it. That is assuming that you could easily find the right seal.
Besides there is no guarantee that the location where
the seal will be placed is still not wornout.

Moen one control shower faucet is leaking hot water


Try replacing the cartridge first.That's your best bit . Next would be the whole valve. Hopefully, it's just the cartridge.

Leaking kohler faucet


Where the spout pivots on the main body, there are a couple of washers, you can replace these washers pretty easily by removing the handle and then the "cover" from the unit. The water has to be shut off before you do this. I would take this oppurtunity to replace all the washers.

My price pfister tub valve leaks


there is an o-ring inside the valve that seals. It has failed. They should sell a rebuild kit where you bought it, or dis-assemble, and take the failed oring in to have it matched to a new one.
