      The Hot water side leaks through faucet unless you press down firmly on it then it will stop until you let up.

      Replace the stem, the seat washer cup and spring and this will fix your problem.

      Use plumber’s grease on all threads and moving parts.

      I talked to a salesmen years ago about the problem with this faucets hot side only leaking and not the cold. He admitted to me it was a desigin flaw and now they use a stainless steel cap on the bottom of the cartridge so the plastic does not warp on the hot side causing this leak.

      He sure had a large simle on his face when he said; “they sure have sold alot of these hot cartridges”$$$.
