How to Remove the Sprayer on a Moen 7900 Faucet

  1. Turn off the valves under the sink by rotating the valve handles counterclockwise.
  2. Hold the hose in one hand and push upward on the hydrolock connection with the other to disconnect the sprayer from the diverter.
  3. Pull the sprayer straight upward and out of the guide.

Likewise, how do you fix a faucet sprayer that won't shut off? Turn off the faucet once you get the sprayer to close and apply some penetrating oil to the valve button to make it slide more easily. Turn off the hot and cold water valves and unscrew the sprayer from the hose with adjustable pliers if you can't push in the valve, or it won't stay in.

Thereof, how do you fix a spray nozzle?

If the nozzle was too tight, your sprayer may now be working. If not, unscrew and remove the cap and hold it under hot, running water or immerse it in vinegar, then use a pin to poke a hole in any blockage in the nozzle itself. If your bottle contains hairspray, soak the nozzle in alcohol.

Remove the handle by pulling straight up and exposing the cartridge body and O-ring. Remove the O-ring and replace it with a new one.

How does a sprayer work?

You pump the trigger up and down, forcing air (initially) from the nozzle. The air inside the top of the bottle is at higher pressure than the air in the tube, so it pushes down on the liquid. The liquid is forced up the tube toward the pump mechanism. The liquid leaves as a fine mist of aerosol spray.

How does a spray nozzle work?

Single-fluid or hydraulic spray nozzles utilize the kinetic energy of the liquid to break it up into droplets. As the fluid pressure increases, the flow through the nozzle increases, and the drop size decreases.

How does the kitchen sink sprayer work?

When you squeeze the trigger, the water pressure drops to engage the diverter. This stops the water flow at the spout and moves it to the sprayer. If your kitchen sprayer quits working, sometimes the sprayer itself has sustained damage, but chances are the diverter inside the faucet has become clogged.
