Being from the UK i assume you mean a tap . There are either rubber or ceramic washers inside the Tap units which wear down after time. It may be a simple case of getting a plumber or do it yourself to change them over.

SOURCE: Moen single lever kitchen faucet leaking at base

check underneath spout ... if is plastic then is a "less expensive" model and the base and some internal parts may be also made of plastic. Is it a model 7100,7400 or 7600? this appears on stem on opposite side of spout... The base may be "out of round" (or "eccentric") from many yearsand may continue to leak even after replacing bottom o-ring. I have learned that if the faucet is older and plastic, advise the person to invest the money in a new Moen faucet: if you are paying someone to do the work, save time & money by having them make the switch instead of tryting to fix w/ a new o-ring, if you want to try to dis-assemble faucet and replace o-ring:

While you are changing o-ring might as well replace cartridge, get cartridge form same place you get o-ring, cartridges are supposed to be free (depending on hardware store) ...someone there should be able to help w/ dissasembly .. i hope ..

Plug drain(s) add some warm water to sink to be able to wash and rinse parts if needed, shut water off, relieve pressure by turning tap on ... plug drains!!! (tiny screws love drains...)

Most MOEN single handles: just pull top off straight up, most are just press fit on. This exposes screw. Before taking screw out make sure you have a clear area to set parts in order of removal taking care to remember alignment and order. Remove screw ...

Internal parts are usually threaded plastic so go easy on things ... unscrew retainers, remove lever control making note on how it engages the cartridge etc... this helps you figure out re-assembly

pull entire spout housing straight up (might resist a bit if crudded up) hold up to light and see if out of round.. you'll now see the brass interior...pinch out o-ring and replace. Silicone lubricant may help (get from same place as o-ring, cart. they should have little free packs..) slide spout housing back over ... re-assemble all in reverse, do not over-tighten plastic retainers, hand-tight ok .. if still leaks

might want a new one ... hope this helps

Thanks for the help. Like the other guy said the "ninga star" thing unscrews and using the plastic part inside I just pop the spray arm back on. Screw it back and it works again.

SOURCE: dishwasher not washing dishes properly

Thanks akubra_lands, it worked for me too on model DW28W. I thought I should elaborate on your answer for anyone else who comes across this while researching the same problem.
The repair is ridiculously simple (takes about 10min) and the only tools needed are 1 philips/posidrive screwdriver and 1 flat blade screwdriver. Assuming you've unplugged it from mains power:

  1. Tip the dishwasher on its right hand side (looking from the front).
  2. Remove 4 screws from the metal base - 2 front and 2 rear (the rear ones have anti-rattle washers on them).
  3. Pull the base away, taking care of the pair of wires leading to the flood indicator float switch which is still attached to the base.
  4. Remove all 4 screws which fasten the solenoid valve to the pipe which leads from the pump upwards to the center of the tank (which feeds the lower spray arm).
  5. Pull the solenoid/valve body off the pipe and you will see it has a whitish plastic flap with a hinge at the top end.
  6. Use the flat blade screwdriver to gently prize open one side of the flap hinge and twist the flap until it is completely free of the valve body. Put the flap to one side.
  7. Replace the valve body, without the flap, and secure all 4 screws.
  8. Reassemble the dishwasher. Done
Now take a moment to admire the handiwork of the engineer who planned the failure of that innocent little plastic flap around 6 months after the expiry of the warranty.
I actually had a repair man come and look at the problem, and yep, right on cue, he told me it needed a new pump motor. $300. When he realised I was on to him he just gave up. So hard for repair people to do an honest day's work these days..

Spray not working, doesn't stop water from faucet.


It sounds like a kinked hose under the sink or a clogged nozzle. Unscrew the nozzle from the sprayer and check for calcium buildup. New parts can be purchased cheaply from the local hardware store, take the old parts in and a sales rep can help you with the correct parts. Some sprayers have replacement nozzles...unscrew the old and screw in the new.

Where is it leaking? At the faucet or on the sprayer?

The spray handle works but the faucet does not. water trickles out of the faucet...spray handle is leaking under the sink. faucet is only 1 year old.


wow need a new faucet?? NO just kidding

Ok the water not running out of the faucet. that is the screen on the end of the spout, just un screw it clean it and your good to go.The leak on the spray, pull the spray out and run it and look at the connection right there on the handle.

if there is no leak, get an other person to run the sprayer and you take a flash light and look up at the bottom of the faucet.and see if you can see the leak from there. The hose should attach to a brass section coming out of the bottom of the facucet, It may be it just got loose and you need to re tighen it. Now yo will need a basin wrench to do that . If yo dont have you you can buy a cheap on ( which is all you need) from a hardware store,

Also if you take your hand and feel around the the bottom of the sink where all the pipe come down it might be the fauect itself.

Good hunting be safe protect your eye

My Blanco Torino faucet is leaking under the button when you press the button on top to use the spray.


Check the hose connections at the spray head nozzle it sounds like it is leaking there and running down the hose and ending up under the sink.

I purchased the Danco 80701 "Repair Kit for Delta, Aquasource, and Glacier Bay Faucets with #70 Ball" so that I can repair a leak in my Delta kitchen faucet. The instructions on the package are...


Sounds like the old style center-control delta type faucet, rubber washers describe older type but still good. The rubber seats have holes in middle, supply water to the cylinder which diverts water to the spout, and has a seal over top of ball allowing stem for handle.

Think they are talking about flex-hose type faucet accessory getting clogged, Maybe: lift the flex-hose faucet housing off the center-control faucet body? Water to it runs directly from center-control faucet and if broken seat gets in narrow line could inhibit spray.

Kitchen faucet spout too has an O-ring under where it connects to the faucet body. Unscrew large nut where meets the faucet body unit (slip-joint pliers), once free of threads, spout should pull straight up, easy or slight tug. I use bent paper clip to remove old one trying to save it in one piece so as to get exact size (that's important) to replace, push on one side then other.

Franke Kitchen Spray Head Part # 4089. Lever on top moves it from stream to spray While on Stream Spray is leaking.... Tried changing washers 1st...then tried new aerotors... still leaking


I have the same problem. By taking off both aerators, I can see that the rubber ring inside the spray head partially disintegrated. Little pieces of rubber even fell out. I can remove the spray head (it twists off; I used a pliers and rubber gloves) but I can't take it apart and even if I did, I don't know if I could replace the rubber ring.

Leaking faucet ff1280r846,1200r692underneath,when lever is open water is running below off spray nozzle..


hello. pull out the spray nozzle and turn on the water. The water is either leaking from the hose, or from the connection. If the hose has a hole in it you will have to replace it. If the connection is leaking, disconnect it [with the faucet off], put some teflon paste or teflon tape on the threads and reconnect it.

Hi,

You need to reduce the pressure to the tap, if you look at the isolator valves beneath the tap, using a screwdriver turn the isolator valve screw until it stops spraying.
