Replacing Your Glacier Bay Kitchen Faucet’s Side Sprayer 

  

36.  Clear everything from under the kitchen sink. You will need room to crawl under there. 

37.  Spread an old bath towel or drop cloth under the sink. There will be a small amount of water drain from the sprayer hose when you disconnect it. 

38.  Shine a flashlight up under the faucet. You should see three lines protruding from the center base of the faucet. Depending on your model of faucet, you may see a threaded shank and plastic lock nut on either side of the water lines. The water line directly in the middle of the faucet is usually the sprayer’s supply line. You do not need to turn the water off to the faucet to change the sprayer or hose. You can shut it off if feel it necessary. 

39.  Disconnect the sprayer’s hose connection from the faucet. Over the years, the hose connection methods have changed several times. The original hoses connected to a threaded shank with a compression nut. Your faucet may still have this style of connection. Simply turn the compression nut counterclockwise when you are looking straight up at it. Caution-cover your eyes by wearing safety goggles when working upside down under the kitchen sink. Use a small Crescent wrench or basin wrench to unscrew the connection. 

New spray hose connections are generally push fittings. This means that the hose connection simply slides up on a smooth shank and seal with an O-ring or two. Disconnection these push fittings can be a bit tricky, it would really be to your benefit to find your faucets original maintenance instructions. Some of the connections use springs to them on, and some use plastic clips that squeezed or spread apart. Use Caution-You can easily break these small plastic fittings. If you are installing a new set with sprayer and hose, it may not be big deal. 

40.  Slide the new hose and connection through the Glacier Bay side spray-RP36031 guide. Push the hose connection up on the faucet shank until you hear a small click. Turn the water on and test the connection for leaks. If you do find water leaking from the hose connection, turn the faucet off and replace both the faucet shank O-rings-RP60002. If the hose connection will not stay on the faucet shank when under full pressure, replace the connection locking mechanism, or block-RP56002.
