I have a Moen kitchen faucet with 2 faucets, high arching…

Customer Question
I have a Moen...

I have a Moen kitchen faucet with 2 faucets, high arching spout and a sprayer. I have water coming out the sprayer even when neither faucet is turned on, maybe 1/4 cup per hour. Is this a problem with the thumb valve on the end of the sprayer or does this relate to the valve that switches from sprayer use to spout use?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Wife just noticed it. But is 1/4 cup per hour and even at that rate is a problem.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

How do I find a model number? I installed this about 15 years ago.

Hi. .........If it is a pullout most times the connecting hose to the sprayer needs to be tightened because pulling it in and out constantly loosens it........so take a pair of slip joint pliers with a rag wrapped around the teeth ........ grip and tighten at the point I mentioned .....let me know how it went
Thanks

cancel this help line. I tried to hook up with Moen and you are not Moen. I have been hijacked.
