    Moen kitchen faucet model 87560. Have removed handle and dome. Cartridge nut does not appear to hold the receptor in place. Does not have top receptor retaining nut so looks like receptor should just lift off. Won't budge. Am afraid to force it since I might break something. I think it is stuck because of corrosion. Any suggestions?

    Looks like a Lowe’s POS for $100. You’re better off buying a new faucet

    If it is a Moen, they have a lifetime guarantee, so call Moen, and they will send you a kit with all of the O-Rings and some grease.
    To see how to remove the handle to do the repair, go to YouTube and put in "Moen 87560 repair". There are plenty of videos on how to do it. If corroded, you may need to spray it with PB Blaster or similar penetrating spray to loosen it.

    If you got the handle off then if you move the spout back and forth it will come off. Then you can put the new o-rings
    and grease on.
