My leaky faucet....


With the exploded view that gregzoll sent, after removing that plastic or metal threaded ring (CCW, see exploded view), it should just pull right out. It may be corroded a bit. Try soaking it in white vinegar and water or lime away for awhile then tap on it a bit. Should come out.

IMO, I agree with gregzoll, turn it in and get a new moen faucet. You propbably won't be able to match parts for it anyway, looks like all plastic and ceramic. Take the cartdridge with you to a hardware store to try and match it up. You'll have better luck there.

Just a suggestion, if you are having trouble matching/getting parts, you could go to their website, ikea.com, click canada, then click the contact us button. They should be able to help you with parts and may send you a new cartdrige for free. Thanks.

Your not going to find parts. Just replace with a good American brand.

My leaky faucet....


I want to let everyone know that after many swearing sessions I did manage to get the cartridge out.

I brought it into the place where I bought the faucet and they gave me a free one.

The faucet is not from Ikea, I would not buy fixtures from there. As to future purchasing of Moen, here in Canada, eh......., they are used a lot in cheaper new built homes, and I wanted something a little better quality.

This is the first time that I have had to put in a new cartridge since we built our home, 10 years ago.

If I need to replace it, I am going to go with a Kohler or Grohe.

Thank you so much to all you wonder people for helping me. What would I do without this place.....Love

I'm glad you stuck it out and got er done

For what it's worth- Moen is high quality or low quality. Depends on your wallet.
But I'd personally avoid Kohler regardless of your wallet. But thats just my opinion....

It depends on what line you go with, is what grade the Moen faucet will be. We got a steal on a $250 shower unit, when we redid our bath. Got it for $75 as an open box at the local Lowe's.

Grohe is way too overpriced, even for upscale building. Kohler, is fine, if you do not mind the wallet shock.

As for Delta, Stay as far away from them as you can. Nothing but plastic parts inside.

Thanks for all your opinions.

All the faucets in the home are grohe, except the one in the powder room which is the one that I just replaced the cartridge and its from an italian company by the name of zucchetti. My husband is a diva, and wants european stuff.....lol

I am curious as to why you would avoid Kohler? Are they problematic?

Wow, that is a great deal. Now I am going to tell my husband, who insisted on getting a $900 shower unit, 10 years ago. I almost filed for divorce on that one.....lol It is gorgeous though.....

I can't speak for other areas but parts for Kohler and American Standard are not readily available here.
Delta, Moen, Hansgrohe and Grohe are popular here and for the most part are proven faucets.

Every line will have it's bad and/or budget models. I have a Premier faucet that a former boss gave me to try in my master bath. They make some real cheap stuff but this one is one solid faucet.
I wouldn't have considered Premier but the $125 faucet was given to me. Not a problem in 5 yrs.

I can't give specifics- I suppose I have just been soured by Kohler over the years. Kind of like I'll drive a ford over a chevy

Seems like anymore you are buying a name and not the craftsmanship a manufacturer used to be known for...

Well, there is your problem. Tell Mr. Metro that you are in charge, and you are going with what will not kill the pocketbook, when it comes to fixing, or maintaining.

BTW, at ten years I would also be checking out the shut-offs for each faucet. If they are as bad as the faucet was, time to pull them and replace with some 1/4 turn Ball valves.

Grohe is what my Brother in Law and his wife went with the fixtures for their new bath, that they did in their Garage, that also has a living area. I personally would not use them, even if we lived in a $750k home like friends of ours do. Their home is both Kohler & Moen, depending on the room.

I love that the Masco faucet we have in the Kitchen, I can walk into the local Ace Hardware down the road from me, and get the parts for it. Same with the Moen. Kohler is about marketing, and not to state that they are bad, they are just really good parts, but some people look at them as more of a status symbol, not functionality.
