They sell a kit at any Lowes, or Home Depot. You have to take the faucet apart.

Just put in a new moen kitchen faucet, why does it have hardly any water pressue?


You might have a clogged aerator screen. Remove the aerator from the faucet and see if the flow is normal. You can rinse the aerator off if it's clogged. It's also possible the stops (shutoff valves) aren't open all the way. Sometimes, if they're old, they don't turn on fully again after you shut them off to put in the new faucet. If you still have low pressure after removing the aerator, you may need to replace the valves.

I don't know if the instructions mentioned it, but it's good practice to remove the aerator and run a faucet to flush the water line after installing it. There's usually a lot of debris that comes through at first. That's usually why you'll have low pressure in a new faucet.

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.

Moen 7700 kitchen faucet leaks at base of spout


The cylinder which surrounds the bottom of the spout is part of the spout. The cylinder is sealed with o-rings at top and bottom. They probably need replaced. Feel free to use lubricant.

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.

We have semi-successfully replaced our Moen cartridge for model 100940. We have no more leaks, the only problem is that the water will not stay on. When we lift the handle up, it immediately starts to...


I know this is an old question, but I just had this issue when replacing the cartridge in my 100940 J1 Moen faucet. I had to tighten the Phillips-head screw down a little more that holds the plastic piece on to the cartridge stem. Hope that's the fix you needed.

We have a steadily dripping tap. Can you please help? thank you.


You don't say anything about what kind of faucet you have, so this may not apply. But if yours is the kind with handles you turn to control the water, you probably have worn-out compression washers. In this kind of faucet, water is shut off by pressing a rubber washer on the end of a threaded stem against an opening in the faucet body. When you turn the handle, you move the washer away from its seat and the water can flow. Over time the washer gets worn and no longer seals off the water. Also, the valve seat the washer presses against can wear and allow water to sneak past the seal. The result is that annoying drip or a steady trickle.

This site, among many others, shows how to change a washer and fix most drippy faucets. If you search for "repair a leaky faucet" you'll find lots of sites to pick from, including many with videos. If you faucet is not a compression type, a single-lever cartridge for instance, there are links to other repair procedures.

If your faucet is old and the parts very badly corroded and worn, you might want to fix the leak by replacing the entire stem as a unit. You can find replacement stems for most brands of faucet at big-box home improvement stores and at many hardware store. It's a little more expensive, but often much easier to unscrew the old one and pop in the new than to start trying to get the old washer off the stem.

A last tip: Whenever you do any work on a faucet, remove the aerator from the spout and run the water to help clear the line. If you just turn the water back on and run the faucet, debris that was kicked up during the repair can clog the aerator screen. Then you're left wondering why you get only a weak trickle or no water at all after you fixed the trouble.

Just installed a kitchen faucet Moen CA87316SRS and there's hardly any water pressure when I open tap. Is there an adjustment I can make somewhere?


no adjustment make sure your water shut off valves are fully open and the hoses or pipes are not kinked.
