I have replaced the cartridge on a Moen Salora kitchen faucet. After reassembly the water discharges from a hole in the side of the metal cylinder (the inside, not the casing) that comes from the base rather than the faucet hose. Only when pressure is over the hole does the water flow correctly. The hole is part of the manufacturing and not from some sort of damage.

Hi Marc, thanks for your replies. We tried new o-rings on the old and new cartridge and no dice. Moen actually just called before I checked your response and said they are sending me a brand new model to replace the entire thing. Pretty nice of them. Thank you for looking at my problem, though!
