How to take handle off of Grohe Lady Lux Cafe-took screw out-handle is stuck

The faucet is leaking, I checked every connection on the sink and found no leaks except that water is dripping from the faucet body, but only when I turn the faucet on. My intent is to dissamble the fauct and find the leaking seal. However, when I tried to remove the handle, I could not. Based on the parts diagram in the owners manual, it appears that if the 3mm hex screw and nylon fitting on the handle are removed it will come off the faucet body. However, I removeed the screws and the handle will not come off. Please advise.

I soaked the connection between the handle and the valve body in a penetrating oil for several hours and eventually used more force than I hoped to use to remove the handle. Once the handle and end cap (part 09 209) were removed, I could see that the valve assembly (part 46 048) was loose which caused water to leak from the seals (part 46 209) between the valve assembly and faucet body. So I tighted the screws that hold the valve assembly to the faucet body and the leaked stopped.

We had a similar problem. Water leaking from the housing unit. Connections were fine. I disassembled the handle and got to the cartridge. Try tightening the 2 large screws before taking it apart further as reassembly is a bit of a hassle. This worked for me.

Grohe ladylux cafe kitchen faucet: new item, the pull out spray piece does not set firmly into neck so that it falls out easily


check and see if the weight is on the hose going to the handle, also check to see if the hose is free to fall down and that it is not hanging up on piping down under the sink

Take it back apart and check the placement of all the o-rings and or seals.
The low water pressure may be no more then the aerator being dirty where the water comes out of the spout.

Before you start taking the whole faucet apart try taking the airiator or head of the end of the faucet. It may just be some sediment blocking the filter screen on the head. Unscrew the head and see if the water flows with the head off.

I have the same problem and have the fix. There is a water pressure regulator on the bottom of the faucet( under the sink) this part is bad. Grohe will replace it for free. Call Grohe at630=582=7722 tell them the model # of the faucet and the color of the regulator, they will send you a new one for FREE.

Trying to disassemble Ladylux Cafe faucet. Grohe


If it is just replacing the handle you will only need a smaller screwdriver set (pretty common) and an allen wrench. I don't know exactly what size you need but you can get a set of these wrenches pretty cheap at any tool or hardware store. Basically the tool is a hexagonal rod that is bent in the shape of an "L". You'll need the smaller set for this job sold usually in sets that have a range of sizes from .05" to 3/8" diameter. I would guess your hex nut is 1/8" or less.

On the bottom of the handle between the sink bed and the handle you'll be able to feel a small hole. When you stick the allen wrench in there it should fit snuggly if the allen wrench wiggles a lot go to the next size up. Since the screw is facing up you will pull the other end of the wrench toward you. This will loosen the screw. It will not take a lot of effort so if you have to force it make sure the allen wrench is actually seated. Kind of a pain but you'll have to reposition the wrench as you get it loosened to fully extract the screw.

Once the screw is out the handle will drop down and the cap just pulls off. Assembly is reverse but make sure that your screw is going into the threads without resistance before tightening. This will prevent cross threading.

Hello: My Grohe Lady Lux Cafe kitchen faucet has become loose where is it attached to the sink. How do I tighten it back up? David


You'll have to go under the sink and look up were the faucet comes through. You'll see it's held in place by a large nut. This nut needs to be tightened. Unfortunately working in the tight space under the sink is a pain in the ****, just be patient and you should be able to tighten it. TIP: Have someone hold the faucet on top in the position you want it.

How do I take my faucet off? It's a Grohe Lady Lux. We are trying to replace.


You need to remove the sprayhead and hose from faucet and underneath you will see a brass threaded tailpiece that the mounting nut is connected to you need to turn the threaded piece counter clockwise.The faucet came with a paddle handle tool that fits in the brass tailepiece but I have used a basin wrench carefully to loosen without damaging threads

I have a water pressure problem with a Grohe Lady Lux Cafe faucet


I solved the problem by unscrewing the part of the handle which attaches to the "pullout" braided cord. There was another strainer in there which has some debris which was blocking the water flow.
