Bathroom sink faucet won't "pull out" to turn on

Hi

I have a single handle bathroom sink faucet that will not pull out to turn on.

The faucet hadn't been used for months because I had to replace the j-trap. That has been done but now there's something wrong with the handle.

I have no idea what brand it is but I know it's pretty old.

Here is a pic:



Any advice is very much appreciated!
Thanks
Colin

Its a Moen. replace the cartridge. Its a 1225B. Get at the home store..

MOEN Single-Handle Replacement Cartridge-1225 at The Home Depot

Turn water off h/c under the sink
Remove outer chrome ring/sleeve
Remove horseshoe clip and remove cartridge per instructions in package.
Install new cartridge and assemble reverse order.

Welcome to the forums....

Hi lawrosa

Thank for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate it.

I also posted this question on a plumbing forum and a guy just responded, "That is a Moen faucet. It needs a replacement cartridge #1200. Call Moen and they will send you one free of charge."

Is he wrong? Do you need more pics?

Thanks again
Colin

Its a 1225 .... I posted a link to the part at the home store...

Yes they may send you a new one.. But you pay shipping and have to wait.. IMO $20 bucks is cheap to just go out and buy it... Up to you...

I called Moen and without any problems they're sending me a free 1225 cartridge. They said shipping was free unless I wanted it upgraded.

I don't mind waiting on it as the faucet hasn't worked for months any way.

Thanks so much for your help. I really do appreciate your time.
Colin
