    Hello All,

    I have a plain two knob Delta kitchen faucet, and when I turn on the cold water there is water leaking out of the hot water knob.

    What would be the normal cause that would make that happen ?

    Thank You, for any clues.

    Have a great day.

    The stem cartridge needs to be replaced.

    Thanks for the reply's

    I guess I had my head up my ass, and could not see the light.

    My Faucet flow was restricted, plugged up screen. Easy Fix. CLR

    My stem cartridge, seats and springs may be worn, but a new Faucet is only $55 and not worth fixing.


    Thank You.
