: Mrs. Miller,
: Good News! If ever a faucet go bad on you then I couldn't think of a better one then Moen. I know you're most likely thinking, "What"! The best thing about Moen is that they are made up with one simple replacement cartridge that is warranted for life. When something ever goes wrong, you know it's the cartridge because there are no other mechanical parts that make up a Moen faucet. It's so simple to replace and I am sure your husband can do it especially since he's already taken it apart a couple of times. Please, call 1-800-BUY-MOEN. Tell them your problem w/ the faucet. They may ask a few questions, how old the faucet is; are you the orginal homeowner, etc. They will forward the replacement part directly to you @ your home. After, you tell them what the faucet is doing, Moen may determine that the entire faucet would have to replaced. But I am willing to bet it's the cartridge. Please give a call, you'll be glad you did.
Thanks for the response. While waiting for it my husband removed the cartridge and took it to our Home Hardware store
and it was replaced immediately with a new one. While installing it he cleaned and loosened the (white)
plastic gasket around it..everything is fine now...he feels that the cartridge was not the problem, that it was
actually that gasket all along, well whatever, all is fine now!!
