How to disconnect sprayer hose on kitchen faucet?


Turn off the water supply valves beneath the kitchen sink. Turn on the faucet and squeeze the trigger on the sprayer to empty any water left in the supply lines, faucet and sprayer.
Trace the sprayer hose from the end of the sprayer to where it connects to the faucet. Use pliers to loosen the connector holding the sprayer hose to the faucet.
Remove the sprayer hose from the faucet to expose the male threads. Wipe the threads dry with a towel. Wrap the threads with pipe-joint tape. Twist a 3/8-inch threaded brass flair cap onto the male threads. Use the pliers to tighten the cap.
Reach beneath the sink and loosen the mounting nut securing the sprayer support to the sink or countertop. Use a basin wrench if you are unable to reach the mounting nut with your hand.
Slide the mounting nut off the hose attached to the sprayer beneath the sink. Pull the sprayer support and the sprayer from the hole in the sink or countertop.
Insert a sink hole cover into the hole left by the sprayer. Depending on the style of hole cover, it could snap in, or a mounting nut could hold it in place.

Things You Will Need
  • Pliers
  • Towel
  • Pipe-joint tape
  • 3/8-inch threaded brass flair cap
  • Basin wrench
  • Sink hole cover

Leaking faucet


I've had problems with the O-rings at the head leaking, feeding back inside the corrugated hose covering, and pooling under the sink. Might be your problem as well. Verify by holding the head downward, and look for water beading out further up the hose.

Sprayer hose leaks at the base of the faucet after sprayer replacement and thread tape application


Make sure the internal washer is intact and there is no damage to the parts that you are connecting together. Also, do not use too much tape....one or two winds is enough and wind in in the direction of the action of the female connector (clockwise) so you don't bunch it up in one spot.

We have a Moen 87315C kitchen faucet and it is dripping from the sprayer portion of the faucet, what's the problem?


If it's leaking at sprayer, and not the base where connected to hose, try this. Buy a bottle or jug of CLR. (calcium, lime, rust ) from hardware store, and pour enough in a bowl that will submerse sprayer in it. When you go to bed, or out for a few hours, turn off both taps (obviously) and relieve all pressure as well from sprayer. Now wrap an elastic around the handle of the sprayer so that lever is depressed, and submerse it in the bowl of CLR, and let it work overnight or at least for a few hours. Next Day, or Later, remove elastic from sprayer, and try it a few times and see if leak has stopped. Quite often you get calcium build up on internal washer/seal, and this will clean it off. If no CLR, you can try vinegar as well, but I find CLR better. If it appears better but not stopped completely, give it another treatment.

I have a Moen kitchen faucet with a leak.


By "leak in the stem" I assume you mean you're getting water in the cabinet below the faucet. High likelihood is it's the hose - either loose where it connects to the faucet or the sprayer. You can pull it out and check to be sure it's tight at the sprayer. To check the faucet end, you'll need to be under the cabinet with a light. If you don't find one of those connections loose, it's likely one or the other is leaking, due to a hose defect or washer (or missing washer).
The only way to see that is to turn the faucet on full (cold) with the sprayer pulled out and look for a leak in the hose behind the sprayer. If not there, leave the water running (may need another person to hold the sprayer) and inspect under the cabinet with your light for a leak either in the hose or at the connection to the faucet. If the problem is the hose or one of the nuts, it's an easy deal to buy a replacement hose - Home Depot stocks Moen.

New faucet, sprayer hooked up right, no water going into hose?


check the sprayer handle by disconnecting and blowing into it and pressing sprayer handle and/or for possible kink at main body or hose by disconnected sprayer point hose into sink and turn on water. If no water the the diverter in main body is not working properly and needs to be reassembled or replaced

Sprayer leaking from inside handle mechanism


although it is possible that the spray head has gone bad, it is more likely that the diverter mechanism inside the kitchen faucet needs replaced. When this part is defective, it allows full pressure from the faucet to go to sprayer head even though the sprayer is not triggered. The sprayer is not designed to handle full pressure when it is not spraying.

Kitchen faucet Installation


Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
