Things You'll Need
A Moen series 7650 faucet is a single lever kitchen faucet. There can be a myriad of problems with faucets that necessitate taking them apart. The Moen 7650 is not that different from most faucets when it comes to disassembling it. It requires the proper tools and a little knowledge of how the faucet is put together. Most repairs on the Moen series 7650 are associated with the cartridge, and it will need to be removed to make those repairs.
Turn off the water supply to the faucet by using the shut-offs under the sink or the main water shut-off for the house.
Use a screwdriver to carefully pry off the outer housing of the faucet. Ensure that you do not crack the housing.
Remove the screw that was revealed when the outer housing was removed. This screw holds the handle assembly. Lift off the handle assembly and set it aside.
Use an adjustable wrench to unscrew the retainer nut and remove the spout.
Use needle-nose pliers to remove the retaining clip that holds the cartridge in place. Pull out the cartridge.
