Moen 1225 Kitchen Faucet Cartridge Repair or Replacement

Is your your Moen single handle kitchen faucet hard to use or leaking around the handle? If it is you can easily lubricate or replace the 1225 cartridge in the faucet.

If you're the original owner owner of the faucet Moen warrants them to be leak-free for lifetime. I called the 800 number at 1-800-289-6636 and requested a replacement cartridge kit for the faucet (think ours is model 7730). They sent it out no charge in about 10 days.

If your in a hurry you can also buy it from Amazon (Moen 1225 One-Handle Replacement Cartridge).

  1. Dave, I did this, but the handle will not come off. Any idea why? I have this same model. I removed the set screw completely and handle is hung up....won't come off.
