I obtained a Grohe replacement faucet head (kitchen) - part number 46298IE). The box contains (besides the faucet head) two small round cylinders (white); one has a green end; the other is white with a...


Thanks for the info about the lifetime warranty, who knew? The two parts mentioned are flow control valves that get inserted at the base of the sprayhead, not the in the hose. The green one says "water care" which will restrict flow more than the white one. It's an either or scenario, not both. There is a VERY faint arrow that points up toward the top of the nozzle. Push it all the way up and reconnect the hose tightly. That's it. My replacement didn't come with a wrench, did that come with the original faucet?

One more thing, if you bought a house that has this and don't qualify for the lifetime warranty, don't get stuck paying $100-$150 for this part if you just need to replace the aerator. The gray head that the water comes out twists out with a wrench revealing the aerator. The part number is 13929 or sometimes referred as 1392900, $10-15, if you can find it.

I have a 7560c moen faucet that is loose at base of sink. how do I tighten it Thank You


The faucet is secured by a nut from underneath, and it's hard to reach because of the sink basin. You need a special tool called a basin wrench to get up to the nut and tighten it. This picture shows one in use:

The faucet you have has only one threaded piece and nut, but it's the same principle.You can find basin wrenches at the big-box home improvement places and most hardware stores, or you may be able to borrow one from someone who does plumbing repairs. They aren't expensive if you decide to buy one.

I have a Price Pfister faucet model F-534-70CC. It won't swivel,what do I do????


If this was a new install, back off the retaining nut a half turn. Most people have a habit of overtightening.

If it has been installed for quite some time, check to make sure that the sprayer hose is not wrapped around something or wegged somehow (under the sink).

I'm trying to change the kitchen faucet and the shut off valves under the sink will not turn, I've tried to spray them with WD40 but they still won't turn. I live in a Condo so I cannot shut...


If you can't work the shutoffs on the water lines under the sink, your only choice is to contact your condo maintenance people. They need to have some way to shut the water off to your unit when they make repairs. They can tell you if there are some more valves in another area that you can access, or they may have a maintenance closet somewhere and can turn the water off for you so you can make the repair.

Sometimes you can turn a sticky valve by using a large set of channel-lock pliers or similar type on the knob so you can get leverage. They look like this if you're not familiar with the type:

pgh_pa_guy_25.jpg

If it's been a while since the valves have been used, they often don't want to move without help. Once free, they may work fine, but sometimes it's a good idea to replace the shutoff valves as part of the new faucet installation. They're not expensive and you'll know they will work if you need to shut them off in the future. Get "ball-valve stops" which make a positive shutoff. Stops that use a rubber washer can sometimes let water trickle through (or more than trickle!) when shut off. Depending on the kind of valves currently installed and the type of pipes supplying your water, you might want the condo maintenance people to do the replacement. But if 1/2-inch copper pipe is what you have and there's a couple of inches between where the pipe comes through the cabinet back or bottom and the current valves, you can just cut them off with a tubing cutter. Then you can replace them with valves that just slide over the pipe and are fastened by tightening down a compression fitting (tightening a nut, in other words).

You should also plan to use new supply lines from the shutoffs to the faucet. Again, they're cheap and the old ones can sometimes leak when you try reconnecting them. Corrosion and mineral build-up from hard water can lead to poor sealing. The current ones may also be clogged with minerals, and new ones will give your new faucet full flow.

Once you've got that problem of turning off the water supply solved, it's usually not too difficult to change the faucet. Make sure you have a basin wrench on hand; on many faucets it's impossible to reach the supply connections with any other kind. The box from the new faucet may tell you if can get away without one.

Good luck with the project, and thanks for using Fixya!

I installed a Uberhaus 80375032 kitchen faucet. But I have problem connecting the spread sprout (the end that's supposed to snap on). It won't go in.


you need to remove the clear plastic piece. The instructions neglected to include this important step. Lets just say my kids heard Dad say a few new words!

I have a moen 7637 single handle kitchen faucet that leaks around the stem. How do I take the lever off.


1) Use a small sharp-pointed knife and pop out the little plastic Moen logo at the bottom of the front side of the handle (and don't lose it!)
2) Lift the lever up a bit (the water may turn on) until you can see a small screw with an allen wrench socket.
3) Unscrew the allen-head screw; the handle will lift straight up.

Look down into the faucet; there's a philllips head screw. The leaking may simply be caused by this screw being loose.

I purchased the Danco 80701 "Repair Kit for Delta, Aquasource, and Glacier Bay Faucets with #70 Ball" so that I can repair a leak in my Delta kitchen faucet. The instructions on the package are...


Sounds like the old style center-control delta type faucet, rubber washers describe older type but still good. The rubber seats have holes in middle, supply water to the cylinder which diverts water to the spout, and has a seal over top of ball allowing stem for handle.

Think they are talking about flex-hose type faucet accessory getting clogged, Maybe: lift the flex-hose faucet housing off the center-control faucet body? Water to it runs directly from center-control faucet and if broken seat gets in narrow line could inhibit spray.

Kitchen faucet spout too has an O-ring under where it connects to the faucet body. Unscrew large nut where meets the faucet body unit (slip-joint pliers), once free of threads, spout should pull straight up, easy or slight tug. I use bent paper clip to remove old one trying to save it in one piece so as to get exact size (that's important) to replace, push on one side then other.

I have a grohe model 33 790 and it is dripping so i assume the cartridge needs to be replaced. how do i get the cover off to get to it stansevey@aol.com


You shouldn't have posted this in the microwave oven section - the 33790 is a faucet!
Facing the faucet, on the right (where the lever is) the en-cap is bayonet mounted - twist and pull.
To remove the cartridge, there is a key that needs to be pullet out from the cavity , the lever unhooked and the cartridge pulls out. The replacement o-rings and special oval seals are available from Guillen in Florida.
