Kitchen Faucet

tim45z10April 22, 2011

Does anybody happen to know how the inner workings of a faucet with a spray hose work? When the water is on and I activate the spray, I only get a slow flow out the spray nozzle. Then when I release the spray, the main faucet doesn't flow at all. I have to turn off the water and wait a short spell for the faucet to flow again.

Thank you for your help

Somewhere in that faucet there is a piece,normally brass, that moves up and down when you push the spray. It sounds like this piece is sticking. The only way I know to cure the problem is to take the faucet apart and find that piece and try cleaning it with somethink like vinegar.

tim45z10, it may be that one phone call to the manufacturer gets you a new faucet. Call them.
