Kitchen Faucet Repair

My kitchen faucet has started to leak. I got the handle off and I got the
c-clip off . now I can't get anything to unscrew so I can get the cartridge out to check if I can repair with new o rings or a new cartridge. There is 2 white plastic ears and a split brass circle. It is a Moen single handle kitchen faucet without a sprayer. I would post a picture but my camera won't download to my computer. Any help will be appreciated.

If I can't get the cartridge out I will just replace the whole faucet . I would rather fix this one.

Kay

Hi Kay -- This is harder to answer because your profile doesn't list what Airstream model this might be. You can go into your control panel (User CP) toward the upper left of any Forums page; select 'Edit Profile,' scroll down to 'Additional Information,' make a choice under Trailer #1, scroll down and click 'Save Changes' at the bottom of the page.

Kay,

Does this look like what's sticking out of what you have left. A brass U clip goes across it?

The retainer hairclip style clip pulls out the side, then the center control barrel pulls straight up and out.

If it is a moen

If you don't get a direct answer here, Moen has a lot of instruction literature online. They also have a decent telephone help line.

I missed a source

Since the Texas State Vintage rally is just the road in Montgomery this weekend, there should be someone in the crowd with the answer. If you aren't signed up for the rally, at least come to the public open house on Saturday afternoon.

Not sure what plastic piece you're refuring to , if it is on the cartridge you can replace the whole cartridge . Most well stocked hardware stores have them , if not a plumbing supply. Replacing the cartridge make a big difference in the ease of operation.

Thumbs up replacement faucet

Please forgive me for not updating this thread with my fix. I finally gave up on getting the cartrage out and I went to lowes and bought a new kitchen faucet with a single handle. It is also a moen ,but any brand would be ok. I wanted to replace the filtered water dispenser so I got a faucet with a spray hose to fill that hole. Lowes had some moen cartrages,but not the one for my faucet. when I removed the nut that held the faucet to the counter top the cartrage almost fell out. I had to drill an additional hole or at least make the original hole larger as the hot and cold inlets were farther apart. After all the frustration in trying to remove that cartrage and then not being able to find the right new one, I had a good stress releaving laugh when the cartrage came loose.

It took less than an hour to replace the faucet and spray hose. I have no leaks and life is good again. It looks pretty close to the original.

Kay

Upgrade

I have found that replacing the whole fixture is easier and cheaper ( what is YOUR time worth?) It is nice to know that you have fixed that dang thing forever!

Moen model M7600 kitchen faucet

I too have this same model that must be 18 years old or more. Moen does not recognize the model. If you have any success with your unit let me know where you got the info.
