moen Camerist kitchen faucet


Hi,
My single handle kitchen faucet keeps coming loose. I tighten the set screw repeatedly and within a week the handle is loose. I even ordered a new handle and it is loose within two days!!! Any idea what I need to check and tighten?

Thanks

Sometimes the set screw or threads get stripped and cause the problem you are describing. Sometimes locktite or a newer set screw may help.

Are you sure its the handle and not the base?

Post a video or some pics so the plumbers can better help you out. Thank you.

If you do use Loctite use the blue not the red, it only takes a tiny dab.
