Unable to remove valve from Kohler faucet K-T15880-4K

There is water leak from the faucet handle on the hot side. I can open the handle and able to see the valve. I can get to using a deep set 5/8" socket wrench. But the valve seems stuck and can't open it. Appreciate any help regarding this.

SOURCE: Adjusting single leaver faucet handle

The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

SOURCE: Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

There is definitely a problem with the cold valve if it is leaking, but it seems odd that it doesn't leak when it is on. If I was doing this, I would replace both valves.

My Kohler Fairfax faucet pressure /flow has dropped (cold)


Verify the cold water outlet has equal pressure as the hot side outlet at the wall. Check the inlet screen on the cold side water line where it attatches to cold water pipe. The screen could be plugged. Then check the cold side hose for any restrictions. Also check if there is a screen on the outlet side of the cold water hose and see if it is plugged. Otherwise the faucet valve is mis-aligned and will need to be rotated and re-tightened to align the valve to the center so both sides have equal water flow.
