Every time I turn on the hot water faucet for my bathroom sink, it rattles, vibrates, and makes a lot of noise. What is causing this, and how can I correct it?
This is one problem that is very annoying, but also very simple and inexpensive to fix. One of two things is happening to make the faucet vibrate. If there is an O-ring halfway down the stem, and it is old, the stem may wobble back and forth, causing the vibration. The other possibility is that the seat washer may be loose. If so, it may vibrate up and down. Both should be replaced.
