This DIY video will take you through how to remove and re install the Moen 1225 faucet cartridge. My kitchen faucet (Monticello 7730) handle was hard to move. If your faucet is leaking or hard to use, this repair is easy and should get things working again.

Please also check out the accompanying blog post to get a copy of the instruction manual for the 1225 cartridge kit. Most of Moen's single handle cathedral spout kitchen faucets will likely be repaired the same way.

If your the original owner of the faucet Moen will ship the cartridge to you free of charge. Once you have the free warranty replacement kit and the proper tools it's very easy to do. For me it took less than 15 minutes.
