 kitchen faucet thumping sound
Author: Juro (MI)

Hello,
Our kitchen faucet makes a loud thumping sound whenever it is used.
This has been the case for a year now.
Perhaps the pipe needs to be burped?
This is the only faucet acting up in our house.
Thanks.

Does it happen on hot and cold water? Is there a separate spray hose?

yeah, IF..
it has a side spray hose then most likely the diverter needs replacing.
determine the make faucet and look on line for an exploded view to tell you location and part number to replace.

My faucet is a Moen, and this is as close as I can find.
The noise happens for both cold & hot water.
Where could be the diverter? I am looking for a schematic.
Here is a pic of my faucet in question. A search for a model # on the rear yielded nothing.

The series number may be stamped on the back side of the spout, near the base where it swivels on the sink. If you point your spout aerator (where the water comes out) so that it is facing the 3 o'clock position, the series number should be located on the opposite side at the 9 o'clock position. The model/series number is usually a four or five digit number beginning with "7" or "8" and may be followed by letter

The diverter is located underneath the spout. It looks like that larger piece around the spout unscrews and the spout pulls free, there are a couple of friction O-rings there and you may have to pull pretty good to free the spout.

Make sure the spray hose is not leaking, because that would cause the diverter to keep "thumping" trying to keep pressure in the hose.

No leaks from the spray hose.

EDIT: I am mistaken. The hose does drip several drops per second.
Also I noticed the hose is wrapped in tape near the sprayer end.

Guess I just wasted $25.00. Do I need a new hose?
