Moen manufactures faucets for kitchen and bath. After continued use, parts can become worn and develop problems. If the bathtub faucet starts leaking, or not easily move the handle or the faucet does not shut all the way, there could be a valve cartridge damaged or frayed. The cartridge valve monitors the output of hot and cold water tap. This problem can be fixed with a new cartridge.

Why the hell cant I get my faucet

To the damn water hoses? I recently purchased 4 new Moen bathroom faucets and instead of having copper feeder lines with brazed or soldered on male threaded pieces I have 16 inches of soft copper tubing. This tubing is 3/8th outer diameter. I have tried compression fittings from L...ompression fittings say they are 3/8 but they are several thousandth's bigger than my copper pipe and the compression nut literally ovals before it will get tight enough to seal. I tried getting solder on fittings but there doesn't appear to be the correct parts at Lowes or HD. I am pissed off to no end with my friggen multiple trips to the god damned store and I can't even hook a damn faucet up

  • Avatar mommmy4 How to fix a leaking bathroom faucet?
    Oct 19, 2008 by mommmy4 | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    Maybe I shouldn't attempt this... any advice would be appreciated. I have a faucet that constantly runs... not leaks, but actually runs (not full blast, but significantly). It stops when I turn off the hot water under the sink. No problem with the cold water. Right now the cold water is on under the sink and there is no dripping or running when the tap is turned off. The faucet has one handle for both hot and cold.

    Is this something I can fix or do I have to get a plumber? I am a mom with limited tools and absolutely no experience with plumbing.

    • This sounds like it is more than likely a lot simpler of a problem than you may think. Now I am NOT guranteeing anything... but i would go to a hardware store explain to them, and they will tell you the same... to start by replacing the 21cent washer that goes right under the hot water handle... it should be simply removing a screw... replacing the washer... and tightening the screw back up... this sounds like it should take care of your problem!
