The spout cover is threaded and unscrews then remove spout and replace the o rings with a Moen o ring kit only use Moen brand or Ace Hardware brand

You have a bad internal o-ring or the sprayer o-ring is leaking, if you look under the sink turn it off and then turn it back on, if you see it leaking out the center shft where the water pipes go into then the faucet may have a broken pipe or loose pipe. check and tell me where it's leaking at. You can buy kits to repiar them they are inexpensive.

SOURCE: kitchen spout leaks

Hi buffy9,

I'm Harvet the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have an American Standard two faucet in my kitchen and the base of the spout leaks at the base. How do you remove it and replace the washers?

Are we talking about an American Standard two HANDLE faucet or one of the single handle models?

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber

Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.

SOURCE: moen kitchen faucet spout

there should be a removable "button" on the faucet base below the handle. under there, there should be a set screw. loosen the screw, remove the handle. now u can adjust the base, collar, etc. to ur liking...don't forget to reassemble everything the same way u removed them.

How to remove leaking neck of old two handle kitchen faucet and fix


The cap at the top will either unscrew, or pry up with a small flat blade. Will be one or the other, haven't seen one of these in many years so I don't remember.. If its leaking around the spout at the base you will need to replace the O rings. Moen provides many repair kits for free. Go to H Depot and ask the plumbing guy to give you a repair kit for this model, it may be free, with instructions included!

You can just replace the o-rings. You have to remove the large nut at the base of the spout. I posted a blog post -and a video about me replacing mine.
