Kohler Forte Single Handle Faucet Leaks

My Kohler faucet (Model R10412-CP) is leaking a thin stream of water. I think it's a ball faucet. The water is coming out just above where the ball meets the faucet neck. I do not know how to remove the faucet handle so I can look to inspect the seals. There doesn't seem to be a screw to detach it from the rest of the faucet. There is a large rotating piece below the faucet handle. I can turn it, but it doesn't unscrew all the way. Even if I am able to open the top of the faucet, I'm not sure what I would need to tighten or replace to fix the leak.

    if you look on the back there's a little oval-ish thing that you can pop off with the a screw driver. Underneath that you'll see a little hex slot you can get to with a hex screw driver. From there, though, I don't know how to take off the retaining nut to get to the cartridge, where I think the problem originates (I have the same problem)

I just installed a Kohler Forte R10412-N-CP. Hot water flow is good. However, very low cold flow. What's wrong


First turn off the shut-off valves and remove the Forte faucet inlet hose from the cold water line. Then put a temporary inlet hose on that shut-off valve. Test how much water flows into a bucket when you open the valve. Assuming that you had good flow from the cold water shut-off valve through the supply hose, a trickle flow on one side suggests the cartridge plunger (mixing valve) or the inlet hose is blocked or damaged. Since this is a new unit, I'd recommend you replace the faucet. The best option may be to take it to the place where it was purchased (depending on the return policy).

I hope this helps and wish that I had better news for you.

Kohler sprayer with forte single handle, will not spray well. When sprayer is on the flow to faucet cuts off but there is only a small amount of water coming out the sprayer.


Check to be sure the hose isn't kinked somewhere below the faucet. If there aren't any kinks there is likely debris stuck behind the nozle screen, remove it and clean it- or your handle mechanism is broken. Replacement handles and hoses are fairly inexpensive if you need one they're easy to find at most big hardware stores or on Amazon

Turn off your water supply to the sink the disconnect the supply lines to the faucet. Reconnect supply lines making sure to use plumbers pipe joint compound of teflon tape. I've found teflon tape to be better. When installing the supply lines make sure that the threads aren't crossed and the retaining nut is snug.
