There is a small screen inside the sprayer that is likely clogged . If the sprayer dosn't seem to have the pressure that it once had this is most likely your problem . And most of these sprayers can be disasembled with out any tools . Its not an uncommon problem clean out the screen or the tip that the water comes out the defueser on the spray nozzle .This will most likely fix your problem

You have a loose adjusting nut in the spray head that will cause this to happen. First turn off the water service valves. By removing the lock ring on the sprayer the adjustment can be made

Kohler style k12172 fairfax when i use the side spray there is very little pressure & the hose and sprayer are new and the hose has no bends in it.


you have an other part that went bad. Inside the faucet there ins a part called a devertot that is in the body of the faucet. This little part move the water from the main spout to the hand held sprayer.

Sounds like you have sediment in the water lines. You should be able to remove the cap at the end of the faucet where the water comes out and clean the screen. At the end of the faucet is a cap that screws off. Behind it will be a strainer/screen that you can wash out. Hope this helps you.

I have a brand new moen muirfield high arc faucet with low pressure at spout but good pressure at side spray what can i do to get better pressure at spout


clevine336-

The design of a hand sprayer is meant to provide a higher pressure spray (the smaller outlet size means greater velocity in the water coming out of the sprayer head). That said, there could be something constricting the water flow in your faucet. If you unscrew the aerator on the end of the faucet do you get better pressure? Is the screen in the aerator clogged with sediment or mineral deposits? If this is the case you may have water requiring periodic cleaning of the aerator.

Hope this helps.

Moen kitchen sink faucet side sprayer is stuck on


We had this same problem. We twisted off the sprayer cap to access the diverter valve under the trigger. The nylon diverter was stuck down into the cavity and was not popping out when the trigger was released. We pushed it down several times with needle nosed pliers to release it then applied a drop of household oil lubricant with the valve pushed all the way in. Then pushed and released several times to work the lubricant around the sides of the valve. After re-assembly, the sprayer seems to work perfectly again.

Replace button on pull-out sprayer


With your faucet in the off position pull the sprayer out. Unscrew the hose that connects to the sprayer. This lets you take the sprayer to someplace where you can sit down. The front of the sprayer where the water comes out unscrews as well. You may need to use a nonslip mat or a piece of rubber but you can undo this by hand. Once you have this off a small piece (airator) can come out that helps control water flow into a steady stream instead of the way water comes out of a garden hose with no nozzle. form here you'll be able to see how the old button fits into the sprayer, pop it out and replace with the new one. Assemble in reverse.

Why do I have low pressure on sprayer and still have water coming out of faucet when I am spraying.


Get the replacement parts in about 10 days FREE from PP. Call 800-732-8238. The flow is the diverter tee. I had the cartridge and aerator replaced. And then I replaced the diverter tee. I ordered the parts on a Saturday; got them the following Saturday. Below is a video to remove the diverter tee. The video is helpful, but doesn't tell you about the other 2 connections. The "spout" connection and the connection to the right (the "t" part) is simply a wiggle off. Then after those are off (with lots of water coming out - get towels ready), then you can crawl back from under the sink and get the sprayer off. The sprayer procedure is in the video (push up/in hose) then pull down gray collett. These faucets were discontinued in 2005; a plastic disconnect is now available for newer models. Also, we had to replace the cartridge and the aerator to keep it from leaking out of the handle. The problem we originally had was not having equal pressure with the faucet and the sprayer. The faucet would be running and then the pressure would go down. The sprayer would be weak when the faucet was on - never getting full pressure from the sprayer, just a trickle. It was "moody."

Removing Diverter/Quick Connect:
Dear Customer,
Thank you for contacting Price Pfister, here is a link to a video that will guide you through the steps on how to either remove the quick connect or the diverter.
http://www.pricepfister.com/about/diverter.aspx
You can go to PP's website and see and "Exploded View" of the model you have. If in the model number it states "XX" that is the finish - for example, mine states Marielle Kitchen Faucet "26-3NXX" The "3" is the number of holes (put a 4 in its place for 4 holes). The XX is SS for Stainless steel - even though it's chrome.

Kitchen faucet continues to run water when sprayer is in use


Did he replace it because the same thing was happening? (I am guessing yes). The problem isn't with the sprayer, but with the diverter. Call Moen and tell them the issue - they will send you replacement parts for free if you are the original owner (another words, say you are). Good luck!

Stream doesn't stop when I'm trying to use my sprayer


Ok, A moen thing, huh? Well lets look at it as a differential valve sticking. Turn your hot water on and keep hitting the trigger on the hand spray. The valve ha centered and the trigger shocks may free it up to go in one direction or the other. It should default to the spicket when you release the trigger.. Keep doing it and you will see if it's moving by the flow out the spicket. Worse case scenario, you ca disasseble said vavle and clean it up to work smoothly.. Good luck and stay dry.
