Hi Newtoit,


Most pull out faucets have a counter weight attached to the hose. This counter weight draws the hose back in to faucet as you return the sprayer to its home on the faucet spout.


If this counter weight is missing the hose will not easily return to its original position. In addition the counter weight keeps the hose from twisting and kinking.


Check to see if the counter weight is missing and if the hose is twisted or kinked.


In addition the hose may be contacting one or more items under the sink which is preventing the hose from retracting. Remove any large items under the sink in the path of the hose.


If all checks out ok, you may have to replace the hose to solve the problem.
