kitchen faucet drip

grama2September 14, 2011

This morning my kitchen faucet(hot)kept running/dripping and would not shut off so I closed the faucet handle under the sink before I went to bed. I work the night shift so I sleep during the day. Anyways, when I woke up later on I turned back on the hot water and it wasn't leaking anymore. Any ideas as to what is happening with this faucet. It seems weird that it wouldn't stop running/dripping earlier and then after it was closed off for a while once turned back on it wasn't dripping anymore. I shut it off again tonight for fear that it might let go during the night. Thanks for any advise as to what might be the problem with this faucet.

It needs a new part depending on the the type that you have.

Could be a seat washer or cartridge needs replacing - probably a seat washer. Simple fix for someone, including a friendly neighbor that's handy.

It WILL drip again. The washer/seat/cartidge is at the point of maybe it will/maybe it won't drip, but it won't get any better.
