Handle on faucet shuts off on its own
I had the same problem. The Price Pfister web site recommends removing the handle (unscrew the dome cap, then remove the phillips screw to get the handle off) then tightening the retaining ring (I used channel lock pliers on largest setting. It worked. However the retaining ring is plastic on some models, and they recommend replacing it with a brass one. I haven't taken that step yet, we'll see how it goes (mine is plastic).

Faucet will not swivel
if your faucet is new....the spout was put together wrong and it needs to be removed and re-attached correctly...(friction washer/ring in wrong position).....if not new....spray some penetrating oil on the connection that is supposed to swivel....make sure the surface is dry and try to avoid overspray. let it sit for 15 min...then spray it again...and again let it sit ....after sitting for a few minutes.....gently try to move the spout side to side...if no change...repeat the first processs...and continue to repeat until it becomes moveable....once moveable....detach the spout.....dry out and remove any foreign matter from the connection side on the faucet...then apply a small amount of faucet grease to the connection threads and the inside barrel....a thin even coat ...excess grease will clog your aerator...don't use too much....now repeat the cleaning and lubricating process on the removed spout connector....reassemble.....remove aerator....turn on the water and flush....replace the aerator....turn water on full blast....check for leaks and for swing...it should swivel now ....if not...loosen the connection nut a tad and try again....if still no swing....you are missing a friction ring somewhere in the connection and it needs to be replaced before you will be able to swing the spout.....good luck...

Water shoots out of my faucet, now can I plug it?
water is supposed to come out of your faucet...in a controlled fashion....if its at the handle....remove the handle and locate the source....tighten the packing gland or replace a seal. if it sprays all crazy at the spout...try unscrewing the little piece on the tip of the spout (aerator)....flush your faucet by running the water with it off...then flush out the screen on the aerator and re-attach it...hope I was some help....good luck and always know where and how to turn your house water supply off before working on any pressure points on your water supply system.

Loss of pressure in kitchen faucet - Price Pfister
Your problem is a simple one.
- Turn off water to faucet.
- Place a towel(s) in the base of the sink(s) to prevent any parts from going down drain.
- Remove the handle to the faucet. (single handle only)
- If not a single handle then remove spout from faucet.
- If a single handle remove cap carefully and any loose parts.
- Gently turn spout side to side while lifting to remove.
- You will see a hole with a very small valve where the water comes out to the spout on the base of the faucet.
- Remove this valve (which is a backflow preventer) and replace.
- Reassemble and test.

The soap dispenser on my price pfister kitchen
Two things spell trouble for these poorly engineered units:water and thick soap...
Inside these pumps is a metal ball for
the check valve. any water in your soap
will corrode this ball, causing the pump
to lose it's prime...
Using soap thats too thick (like Dawn)
will cause the soap to harden around the moving parts and impede the pumping
action. Try a thinner soap, such as inexpensive pink hand soap.DO NOT
ADD WATER! (See above)
Hope this helps.
