Kitchen faucet leaking. Not even a year old

My kitchen faucet is leaking and flooding under my sink. Not even a year old. Who do I need to contact for a warranty faucet? Thanks.

My trailer is a 300x12hp. Thanks.

I would not file a warranty claim but go to your local hardware store and purchase a real faucet set and not one made from plastic. Did you check to see if the water fittings are tight under the sink. This might be the problem and not the faucet.

I would not even bother with calling the dealer for this, just not worth the hassle.

Go to Lowes or Home Depot and buy what ever faucet you like and replace the cheap thing you have running water on the floor.

Easy swap but you do need to be part contortionist..

You don't say where it is leaking, Check the connections. Try tightening each one by hand. If they were not tightened properly during assy, they can work loose.

Also check drain plumbing. I have to tighten P trap every few months. It starts leaking from time to time, but store my trash can there. So I don't get to excited.

Thanks guys. I checked fitting 2 times. Still leaking. Added Teflon tap and screwed in... Still leaking. Leaking up inside the housing that the hoses connect to. Brass housing maybe cracked. Not sure. But I'm gonna tear it apart and see what the heck.

It is aggravating but I'll probably just go buy one and change myself. It is tight fitting inside that covey hole.

It is not the pea trap or PVC, it is definitely the faucet.

X3 on replacing the faucet.
I had a similar leak under my sink last summer - not much, just a slow drip from time to time. Removed, tightened and re-tightened the connections to the faucet but still couldn't stop the leak. I finally had enough and replaced the faucet with a regular one and, while I was at it, cut off the original pex piping and installed individual shut-off valves complete with braided supply risers. Afterwards, I disassembled the original trailer faucet and found a broken o-ring at the supply connection. If I could have seen that from the beginning, I probably could have got away with just replacing the o-ring but most of the time I was working by feel. My advice is to go ahead and replace the cheap plastic trailer one with a quality one from your local hardware store.

Mine seemed to be a higher end faucet. Guess not.

Yes yours is Not a "Every Day" plastic Pull out unit like installed in Most F/R units! Is it Metal? If so let the Dealer "Supply a New One" it appears Yours is a Upgrade! Youroo!!
