Where is The Model Number on A Moen Kitchen Faucet
Perhaps your Moen kitchen faucet is in desperate need of repair. However, you may not have the faucet installed and you may not know what the model number of the faucet is. It is crucial to determining the parts you need. If you still have the product in its original packaging, then you’re in luck.
Many people see no need to hang on to the original box and clutter up their garage, so you may have recycled it. Whether you still have the original box or not, this quick guide will help you determine how to find the model number of your Moen kitchen faucet.
How To Find The Model Number
If the original box is still floating around your house somewhere, look for it. Moen says you’ll find the product number on every product package.
Otherwise, you can also use the numbers on the instructions to determine the exact model number. The model number should start with a “7” or “8” and consist of four or five digits as well as a few letters.
Maybe you threw away the box and the instruction manual. Don’t worry, you can still determine the faucet’s number. If your faucet is a non-pull-out model, the number of the general family series should be located on the back of the spout.
Please note that the number on the back of the spout is not the actual model number. It is a serial number. Once you find this number, you can use it and Moen’s “Identify My Product” page to determine the replacement parts needed for your faucet model.
What About Discontinued Models?
Let’s say you have a discontinued Moen kitchen faucet and cannot locate the model number, serial number, or find your product on the “Identify My Product” page. In this case, you may need to seek help from the manufacturer.
Older models of Moen kitchen faucets may have hard water or soap buildup that may be hiding the model number. If you can’t remove the hard water, or if the number is worn off, try taking a few photos of the faucet.
Send these photos of the faucet to the manufacturer, as they may be able to help you identify the Moen faucet in your kitchen.
Other Places To Check The Model Number
Determining the exact model number of your Moen faucet is critical to purchase the correct replacement parts, such as faucet cartridges or washers. If you cannot find the model or serial number on your faucet, if your faucet has a removable handle cover, check underneath it.
The number may be engraved on the underside of the faucet handle cover.
If your efforts are still fruitless, you can check the faucet’s cold water supply line. The model number may be attached to the water supply line, which is usually located under the sink.
What If I Still Can’t Find It?
The model number may be elusive. If you’ve checked all the places we mentioned above, from the spout to the cold water supply line, and still can’t find it, you may need to seek the manufacturer’s help.
Older and discontinued kitchen faucet models are even harder to identify because Moen’s website pages, such as the parts diagram PDF called “Exploded Parts View,” only go back to 2011.
If you are having difficulty, seek the help of a Moen representative by sending a photo of your faucet. They may be able to identify the faucet for you and thus direct you to purchase the necessary replacement parts to repair the faucet.
