So, you need replacement parts for your Moen faucet, but don’t know what model of faucet yours is. Knowing the faucet model number is often necessary for repairs and replacements, and for warranty issues too. How to find your Moen faucet model number is what we will cover right now.
In What Situations Will You Need the Model Number?
There are a few different reasons why you may need to find the model number of your Moen faucet.
First and foremost, if you need a new faucet, and you want the same one as you had before, then you will definitely want the model number. Sometimes finding an exact match can be difficult without the faucet model number. After all, there are many models that look similar at first sight but have tiny differences that can be important.
You may also need the faucet model number if you need replacement components. There are various components of both kitchen sink faucets and bathroom sink faucets that may need to be replaced. These could include small washers on the inside or anything else of the sort. Finding the proper replacement components that will actually fit is not really going to be possible if you don’t know the model number.
You may also need the model number if you are in the process of building a new bathroom but don’t yet have the sink faucet itself. If you can find the model number of the faucet, the one that you are still waiting to arrive, then you can begin building your countertop with the proper dimensions. If you don’t know the dimensions of your new faucet that you ordered online, you can’t begin to build the counter until the faucet arrives.
The other reason why you may need to know your faucet model number is due to warranty issues. If your faucet breaks and it is still under warranty, you will need the model number. The model number will allow you to figure out exactly what kind of warranty your faucet has.
3 Ways to Find Your Moen Faucet Model Number
There are three different ways to find your Moen faucet model number. Let’s take a look at each of the ways. Keep in mind that Moen does not list faucet model numbers directly on the faucets.
1. Check the Packaging
The easiest way to find the model number of your Moen faucet is by checking the packaging itself. Yes, here we are talking about the packaging that the faucet itself came in when you purchased it. The model number should be listed somewhere on the side or front of the box.
2. Check the Owner’s Manual
If you threw out the box, but still have the owner’s manual, you should also be able to find the faucet model number in there. Generally speaking, the faucet model number will be listed somewhere in the first few pages of your owner’s manual.
3. Check the Supply Lines
Although this is not the case with all Moen faucets, it may be, especially with newer ones made after 2010. You may be able to find the Moen faucet model number listed on a tag that is attached to one of the water supply lines. Newer models come complete with plasticized paper tags that contain all of the relevant information that you need to know about your particular Moen faucet.
A Note on Numbers Found on Moen Faucets
What you need to be aware of is that you may find some kind of numbers and letters imprinted onto the faucets themselves. For kitchen faucets, there will be a number listed on the back of the water spout. For bathroom sink faucets, there should be numbers listed on the front curve under the water spout.
These numbers will look something like “A12.18.1”. What you need to know here is that this is actually not the model number, but rather the series number. That said, if you cannot find your faucet model number, then this series number is better than nothing. You can use these series numbers in combination with the images that can be found on the Moen website to identify the exact faucet you have.
