Moen faucet replacement

I have a 2002 AS Classic and the Moen faucet over the kitchen sink needs replacing. Turning it off is the problem -- to do so we have to push down near the base of the handle instead of the handle itself. Also, the hand sprayer has cracked and leaks when the faucet is turned on.

Any suggestions on a replacement? A newer model Moen? A different brand?

We're not really do-it-yourselfers so we'll probably try to get it fixed at Camping World or RV dealership.

Sieve, any quality faucet should work and any plumber should be able to replace it for you. It is a standard household fixture requiring standard household plumbing.

Good luck.

If the faucet is basically solid you can rebuild inexpensively with a parts kit available from most any plumbing supply. Did mine this year and as I recall all I needed was an allen wrench and a screwdriver. Easy.

I think that faucet utilizes a "cartridge" type mechanism. You can find the cartridge at Ace or any of the big box stores, I believe.

Before you do anything, I would call Moen.

Most of their newer products carry a lifetime guarantee.

Try contacting Moen directly. You might be surprised what the will provide for FREE, particularly if you are the original owner.

Although they don't advertise it, Moen supplies repair parts at no charge if you're the original owner (part of their lifetime warranty). If your not the original owner you'll have to pay for the parts. This was my experience on a kitchen faucet in our home and may not be the same for your AS.

We replaced our Airstream faucet with this one from IKEA

Sieve, I agree with the others. Before you call Moen, take a look at the underside of the faucet. Look at the hose connections, take some pictures of the different connections and the top. If you have the literature that would help. If not, look at the parts list on Airstream's website, they are under the Service submenu.

Moen is really good in their support. I've recently noticed that they offer lifetime warrantees on their products.

Repairing Moen products is easy, and it is a good starting DIY project.

Good Luck

As others have said, Moen is not a throw-away product. Their telephone help line is fabulous, as is their dealer support.

Take your time, you'll get it fixed.

The Moen faucet that comes standard in newer Classics retails for around $200. The sprayer feature and aesthetics are both worthwhile. They are worth fixing.

We replaced our 39 yo Moen with and AquaSource, single handle pull-out faucet. Our Moen was worn out with the brass inners were frozen and shot. But what a product!

The cost was a little cheaper. We love the spray handle being able to pull out and have a setting to increase the flow while working in either sink.

You do need clearance underneath the sink for the weighted faucet hose to retract freely into. I didn't look for the Moen brand of this style, but we are very pleased with this. Will it last as long as the original Moen, we hope to find out.

Ordered Parts from Moen

Thank you everyone, for all the suggestions. We called Moen while on the road yesterday and they were very helpful. They going to send us a replacement parts kit to a campground we're booked into in Arizona. Since we're the lifetime owners of the AS it's free. Just have to pay a small shipping charge. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Relacement of a moen cartridge is not difficult BUT if you can find someone with a "Moen Cartridge puller" tool it will make the process MUCH easier..... It is a $25 little tool and if you ask around some tool geek like myself will have one..... also don't forget to pull the little "D" clip that holds the cartridge in....You wouldn't be the first to forget to take it out before trying to pull the cartridge.....

We replaced the kitchen faucet in our 2009 OB with this one from grohe, just because we liked it better:

GROHE - K4 1/2" Single-lever prep kitchen faucet 32073 00E - K4 - Kitchen Faucets - For your Kitchen

It was an easy replacement.
