I've got a leak on the cold side. Do I need to remove the cap at the top of the lever to get to the cartridge? If so, I am unable to do so. Is it hard to get the cap off? Is there a trick to remove the cap?

And yes it can be a little bit of a job. If the faucet has been around a while you mite try some white vineger on the cap to looson the lime deposits.

Shower pull out turn only get hot hot water no mix of cold


If the valve has been worked on recently, the integral stop for the cold side may not be open. There is also a possible obstruction within the cartridge. Possibly a piece of sand bark or any kind of debris that might get in the water. You can replace the cartridge or you can just try to flush the lines. Here are instructions on cartridge replacement. MOEN CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
There are two different types of Moen cartridge for a single handle valve. The first and most common one is the plastic 1225 cartridge that is used for all Moen single handle valves that are not posi-temp shower valves. This cartridge also comes in brass which is number 1200, but it is more expensive and doesn't last any longer or work any better than the plastic cartridge. The posi temp cartridge is a number 1222. This is the replacement cartridge for shower valves that you turn rather than pull. As you turn the valve it goes from cold to warm to eventually hot. The tools needed for this procedure are pliers, Phillips screwdriver, a small flat screwdriver or awl, a 3/4 inch copper cleaning brush, silicone or heat proof grease, a knife to pull the cap on an acrylic handle, or a 7/64 inch Allen key to remove lever handle.
If it is an acrylic handle simply pry off the cap and unscrew the screw with a Phillips screwdriver. If it is a lever handle there is a set screw which is 7/64 of an inch. Use an Allen key to remove this set screw. If it is a lever handle when the handle is removed you must use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the handle adapter.
Before removing the cartridge make sure that the water is turned off and open the valve to bleed off the pressure. Leave the valve in the open position as it will facilitate the removal of the cartridge if the spindle is in the open position. It can be turned off at the main which is usually the easiest thing to do, or you can remove the faceplate and there may be integral stops behind the faceplate. Use the integral stops if your water main is hard to reach. On the brass spindle of the cartridge there is a notch on one side. Before you remove the cartridge take note of what position this notch is in because that is the position in which the cartridge will be placed. Do not forget this step as a posi temp cartridge will not function properly if installed with the notch in the wrong place. If you install the regular cartridge with the notch in the wrong place, hot and cold will be reversed. Simply remove the handle and spin the spindle 180°.
Pull off the chrome stop tube that encloses the cartridge. There is a horseshoe-shaped retainer clip that must be removed. Use the small screwdriver or all to pry up the top of the retainer clip. A plastic square head removal tool comes with the cartridge that you have purchased. Place this on the cartridge and spend back and forth to loosen the cartridge. Then take your pliers pull the brass spindle straight back towards you. If this proves too difficult and you are unable to pull it out you will have to buy a Moen cartridge pulling tool. Be sure to buy the right tool as they are not interchangeable. The posi temp tool is much fatter than the regular tool. The tool operates the same way a hub puller. Back off the knot on the tool as well as the screw. Place over the cartridge and advance the screw all the way. Now advance the nut.
After the cartridge is removed take the 3/4 inch copper cleaning brush and insert into the cartridge housing while spinning clockwise. When removing the brush also keep spinning it clockwise. After brushing, open the water main for about three seconds to flush the line out.
When installing the cartridge make sure that your notch is aligned properly and that the cartridge is pushed in all the way and that the two tabs on the cartridge are aligned vertically. Install the retainer clip. If it doesn't go in all the way either the cartridge has not been pushed in foreign off or the two tabs are not aligned properly. You can use the plastic tool to align the tabs properly and to help push in the cartridge all the way. Reassemble faceplate and handle and you are done.

The spout on my Moen 7700 kitchen faucet is very "stiff". Do I need to get plumbers grease into it to loosen? If so, how? I've tried dropping the nuts under the unit beneath the sink and am still


you need to remove the moen cartridge. first, remove handle. at the top of stem, there is a U shaped retainer clip. it hard to see,use a small knife blade to catch the closed side of clip and slide clip out. once clip is removed, you should be able to pull cartridge out with a twist and pull motion. if it wont come out,that way dont pull to the point where you brake cartridge. that means replacing faucet. in extreme cases, you ca buy a moen stem puller for about $15. once stem i out simply coat with stem grease and replace cartridge. when replacing retaining clip, keep a pushing in pressure on end of stem to allow clip to slide into place. it iseasier to do than it sounds

Wan to know where to put antifreeze


These cars do not have radiator caps. If you look under the hood to the left you should see a translucent plastic bottle with a black screw top. Observe the fill line on the side of the bottle so that you do not overfill. Also be sure to do this while the car is cold. Removing the cap on a hot car will cause piping hot coolant to shoot all over you. I've seen in happen. Not pretty.

Kitchen price pfister with spray that comes out of arm. Need to take off on/off lever at top to look for cause of leak. How to remove the on/off lever?


If you will look .....first thing would be a good idea to turn water cufoffs under the counter to off position....then remove handle,to do this there should be a set screw (hexagonal screw) on the bottom side of handle lever a heagonal wrench will be needed to remove handle...... Now that you have the handle off you can turn the cold side of the cutoff on or the hot side to find out which one is leaking hot or cold .......if indeed it is a washer ( rubber cup) that is leaking.......hope this helps...

Customer installed a kohler tub/shower faucet and it leaks out of the head. We've changed the cartridge but the results were the samr.a Any recommrndations?


If it leaks out of the shower head and not the faucet tap, then I would look into the scald guard setting or the selector lever or even for a small scratch around the cartridge.

I have a Brother DCP-165C printer. It will not let me clean..it keeps saying "can not detect black " . I've replaced the black cartridge ,but it still says "cannot detect" and will...


Hi

The brother printer's cartridges do not have smart chip hence its a mechanical problem in the cartridge hence remove all the cartridges and inspect with a spot light in the cavity where you install the cartridges there may be something causing the sensor to malfunction. And at the same time try to shake the cartridge a little and then install back slowly as there is a lever which is present in the front portion of the cartridge and this what the printer looks for.

Grohe ladylux plus is leaking


I believe there is a cartrige that has some washers in the unit. There may be some debris caught in there since it was a little loose. I would turn the water off and disassymble the unit and replace any obvious washers and clean everthing up. Replace it all and try it again. If it still leaks, contact Grohe for more trouble shooting. Faucets have fantastic warranties and companies usually will send replacement parts free of charge at times. Hope this helps.

Leaking Kitchen Tap


I am assuming that your kitchen tap is leaking through the spout

if it is single lever you will need to remove the crown and spout by removing a small erasure size cap on the housing right under the spout or up near the back of the ever then use a hex wrench to remove the set screw( plug the drain holes do it does not go down the drain)

turn the water off (hot and cold ) under the sink
remove the set screw and lift off the lever

at his point you can take an adjustible wrench(channel lock and tighten the big ring nut that holds the cartridge in place

temorairly put the handle back on and put the handle in the off position turn the water on under the sink and see if it stopped leaking

if it still leaks you have to turn the water back off and remove the lock nut then the cartridge and go to big box store with old cartridge and name of mfg and get a new one and install

If you have seperate hot and cold valves on top of sink deermne which is leaking by turning one off with oher on undr the sink

once you have determined which it is (hot or cold)
take a phillips head screw driver( remove plastic clear cap on top of faucet handle with sharp crewdriver of knife blade) and remove the screw holdin the handle on to the stem(turn counter clock wise

be sure to turn water of under snk on both faucet risers after removing acrylic handle you then take an adjustible wrench and remove the crown nut turn counter clockwise until it comes off over stem

remove stem( looks like size of a pretzel about six inches long with washers on side and one on end

take the stem to local hardware(ace) or big box store and go to lumbing section ask clerk to inspect and recommend replacement washers or replacement stem (if needed)

go back reinstall and tighten crown nut snug( open (turn counter clockwise) tem valve before you snug it down with crown nut
install acrykic or chrome handle with brass phillips screw then ut cap on and turn on water and check for leaks

good luck
