A Moen faucet model number is a three-digit number. The first two digits in the model number indicate the series, followed by the style of the faucet.
For example, the model number for a Moen Faucet Model 81886D4 is 81886D4. The first two numbers indicate that it is a part of the 818 series and it has a double handle design, or D4 style.
Which Parts of My Faucet Are Made of Metal?
The faucet itself is usually made of metal, but the body of the faucet will be metal or ceramic. The metal parts are usually on the end and underside of the faucet.
What Are the Three Numbers That Make Up My Faucet Model?
The model number consists of three numbers that indicate the series, type and style of the faucet. The first two numbers are the series, which identifies the product line. For example, a Moen model number of 10-1181 would be a Moen faucet from their 10-Series that is also from their 11-Series. The third number is the type, which identifies what kind of faucet it is. In this case, it would be an 846HN Faucet with a single handle pullout sprayer.
Another way to identify your Moen faucet is by looking at its nameplate on the side of the faucet. This nameplate has a lot more information about what makes up your particular model than just the model number.
How Do I Know Which Type My Moen Faucet Is?
If your Moen faucet has a lever handle, your model is most likely to be a single handle. If your Moen faucet has a pull-out sprayer, then it’s most likely an aerator faucet. If your Moen faucet has two levers at the base of the faucet, then it’s most likely a single lever or double lever.
If you have a Moen kitchen sink, then your model is most likely to be one of three types: Single Handle Kitchen Sink Faucet Aerator Faucets (model numbers 66486/84831) or Double Lever Kitchen Sink Faucet (model number 9934).
How Can I Identify Which Style My Moen Faucet Is?
The model number of your Moen faucet can be found on the side of the faucet.

- In the third series, the third digit is a “4.”
- In any other series, it starts with a lowercase letter.
