bradshaweric: my whole faucet moves side to side all the way down to base plate...how do
i tighten it?
Dan Collins: Thanks for this video. I have just replaced the valve in my Moen faucet
with your help. The hardest part was removing the facet and spray nozzle,
as there is not much room inside to slide it off. After doing the
replacement, I found that it was not necessary to remove this. It would
have been easier without doing so, but thanks for helping.
Byron Barnard: took the hex screw right out but still couldn't get the top off. Any
thoughts? I thought it should just pull right up like in the video.
Wesley Graham: My problem was that the handle would hyper-extend causing the water to
still drip while shut off. All mine needed was to have the plastic nut
underneath the dome tightened. I guess over 5 years of use, it had worked
itself loose. Super easy fix. Thanks for the vid!
Scott Stephan: I couldn't get it to work right until I read the comments! In
reinstallation, make sure the white piece goes on first w the tab facing
front, then the hinge joint, then the black piece. I stressed for hours
before figuring it out! So glad it finally works! Thanks for the video
(which I have now memorized from watching it so much!)
Celest Allred: So helpful! Thank you!
emzedee: thank you!
MrMrfreedom1: My Moen single handle is held on by a 7/64" TAMPERPROOF hex head screw. I
am having one hell of a time trying to find the appropriate allen wrench,
cannot find one to save my ass.
James: Thanks for posting this video. I thought that it would be easier just to
buy a new faucet than repair it. When I saw your video I realized I could
do it no problem. Home depot had the parts (new cartridge with tool;
handle repair kit) all for $33. I had my iPad handy and just paused and
played and got the job done!
I figure that I saved about $200 dollars on a new faucet or about $150
dollars on a plumbing bill. YOU CAN repair you own faucets!
Dean Peters: *Repaired! One Moen extensa 7580BL Single Control Kitchen Faucet w/Pullout
This time, it was not the vacuum breaker, but instead a clogged spout
Either way, 1 hour and $0.00 dollars later, the wife's not only happy that
her sink is back in action, but that it got done with no "colorful
language" and/or significant outages for a run out to the Home Depot or
Thank you Internet for providing the necessary PDFs, plumber's forums and
instructional videos such as this one:
Celticharper: Thank you so much for this video. I was just able to make this repair and
replace the cartridge easily because of your clear instruction. Thank you
Glover Epperson: The main problem I had is that I unscrewed the chrome piece, rather than
pulling it off. Thus, the two black and one white piece came with it. You
installed it in a different order than taking it apart. When you took it
off, you took off the hinged piece before taking off the black and the
white. When installing it, you put the hinged piece on after the white
piece with the comment that the ridge on the white piece is facing you.
This comment was the KEY for my success. Thanks so much!!!!
David Gonzalez: What size is the hex key and the nut down below!!!!!
marianna1916: Hi; I have a single handle faucet and have always had a problem with the
swivel operation of the item. Currently the handle will not swivel except
from centre to the right creating a danger of scalding from the hot water
and I need to know how to adjust this. It has been suggested the cartridge
is the culprit. Any ideas/help would be appreciated. Thanks, Frank D
chops8: Thx. I couldn't see how the plastic "hinge" went on until I saw this.
John Lafond: Thanks for posting this. It really helped and turned the repair into 30
mins and $19 for the replacement filter.
etwitt10: Hi, I see a 'Screen Washer Kit' on my parts list. It is #101199 I am in
Canada so it might be different... Good luck!
Craig P: I need some advise, my faucet "like this one" leaks from under the base
plate. Any idea what parts I need? Also, in the video, you don't show the
bottom of the faucet. I was wondering if there are any o-rings, or does the
leak always start from the parts you replaced (cartridge, etc.)? Thanks for
laejnaek: Thank you very much, it was driving me crazy and you solved the problem I
James walker: I have mine hooked up but no water goes through it, I pull the valve
cartrideg and water comes into the valve body, just no water when i put it
Jermaine Jones: Thank you. Worked just as you explained. Only issue was that when it was
time to pull the old cartridge out is was tough. I used turn grip pliers
side ways to grasp brass tip and use a hammer to tap it up. All is well!
kultyper: what size hex key did you use?
Jolene Ramseth: Thank you so much for posting this. I could not find out where the leak was
on my faucet, and your video got me to take another look at it before I go
and bought a whole new one. Turns out it was just the pull out sprayer was
loose. Great job!!
Leslie Godwin: Did it! My first plumbing feat. But now my hot & cold are oppostite to what
they were...any suggestions?
duli chand: great video helped me to fix my old faucet instant of spending 200.00 on
new one.thank you for posting this video
jornd167: I just called Moen and they told me they were going to send me the whole
Kitchen Faucet for free!!
Bizzybeemer: Thank you! That was very helpful!
fivecoulters: Great video, it was exactly what I needed. My faucet has the top circular
cover that pops off to reveal the screw, but once inside, the valve
replacement was exactly as shown here. Thanks!
tangomango555: I got a my replacement cartridge from Home D for about $12. It is the Danco
brand part #88431E and worked for my Moen Renzo. Hopefully it last for more
than 2 years since these Moen faucets are pretty lousy. Thanks for the
video though! Still much cheaper and easier than changing the whole faucet.
Frank Cooper: Thanks for posting this. It helped me fix my moen faucet.
TheTonyGardner: Thank you! This was very helpful.
Gary Ward: I also installed the same faucet but my water presure seems to be a little
lighter is this normal ?
ATD909: Thanks to your video, I was able to know how to get to the broken plastic
hinge that made the faucet handle break off. Ridiculous that Moen uses
PLASTIC to connect the handle to the mechanism. Regardless, all it cost me
was time to watch your video and $5 from a local shop for the Moen handle
repair kit. Thanks alot; you saved me money! 8-)
MrBobRobert123: Good video! I went to Lowes two years ago and had to pay about 40.00 for
that part and now it is leaking again.I ask the guy what about the life
time warranty and he just laugh and said why do you think they sell parts
for it.How do get a free one? I think I will call Moen. Great how too video
Clan Creelman: Thank You! Easy to understand and helpful!!!
CRASHtheChief: Terrific! I have this faucet in black, and thanks to your help discovered
why it was loose. (The hold-down nut inside became cross-threaded). I fixed
it in less than 5 minutes! Thanks for posting this!
DELOREAN023: Thanks for posting this, it was exactly what I was looking for.
reubendsa: Thanks for posting this video. It helped me change the cartridge for my
leaky faucet. Some parts of the video were obscured by your hand, so it
would be nice to have a better view if you are doing more videos.
cyberben3d: Works like a charm. Sadly I couldn't order the replacement part on the Moen
website BUT Amazon delivered the replacement plastic hinge in 3 days!!
Scott Gallagher: thanks I was minutes away from calling a plumber! The handle replacement
kit instruction diagram was misleading regarding that black plastic piece
on the hinge that you started to explain at 2:16
Jack Lucas: Even though mine isn't the same model or style, the inside was exactly the
same. Helped me get mine apart and back together, thanks.
Dan Trubovitz: thanks, very useful and helpful
Ron McFeaters: Thanks for the closeup of the black rubber piece of the hinge. Showed me
exactly what I was doing wrong.
Joyce Costa: We have been looking for a Moen Salora 7570 handle. We went on the Moen
site, but no Salora. Do you know where we can find one, or who could we
contact, as it is still under contract. Thank you.
James Hitt: Thanks for posting this. My plastic hinge broke and I couldn't figure out
how to put it back together. The instructions did say or show the hinge
attached to anything. Your video showed me that it clipped over the brass
piece. Made a huge difference in reassembly!
saneagain2002: Thanks, man. I think this is exactly what I needed. The handle's action on
my faucet is funky. Sometimes the water does not shut off when I expect. I
have to press down on the top of the handle to stop the water. So I will
investigate with your information. Problem is, Moen discontinued this
faucet in February 2013 and have removed the exploded view that contains
the part numbers. I found one on their site, but only by going through a
google search, not Moen's search.
567482: @LMGODWIN The cartridge is in backwards. take it out a spin it 180 degrees.
nickatnoon611: Thanx Bud, I am CanaDUH's worst handy-man, lol and I gave up and sat down
to check the net for a visual like yours, and I got the little black
plastic hinge/screw thang back on properly. Good job, just to add one
thing. PUT THE PLUGS IN THE SINK BEFORE STARTING JOB,b/c sure as s**t a
screw will fall down the drain! Cheers, it's Miller Time now! LOL
Bennie G: Thank you, I taught I was going have to do a rebuild. It was just the loose
Jen F-N: Great video--thank you very much for showing this. It makes repairing
common household items a snap for a novice like me. Take care.
