Ll800-BN faucet drips after water is turned off need to know how to make adjustment
More than likely, the cartridge will need to be replaced. I am not familiar with this particular faucet. However, most faucets are very similar in the breakdown procedures.
Be sure, first, to make sure water is turned off at the shut-off valves under the sink. Next, you should find a set screw on the handle; this is usually removed with an allen wrench. The screw is typically located on the handle of the faucet; often times, the set screw is covered by a small plug that is either red and blue, or will match the finish of the faucet.
Once you remove the handle, you may find another screw-typically it is a #2 Phillips screw, or a nut that loosens to gain access to the cartridge. Once you remove that assembly, the cartridge will need to be removed. Also, there may be a slide clip holding the cartridge; if it has that clip, you will find it just under the stem of the cartridge and it is usually found closest to the wall side of the faucet. Manufactures make cartridge removal tools, as sometimes the cartridge can be difficult to pull out. However, more often than not, I use a pair of channel locks. If you choose that method, just be sure you do not scratch the finish on your faucet. Keep in mind, it may take some force to remove the cartridge.
If you order a new cartridge for your faucet beforehand, the new cartridge will come with replacement instructions.
This is a very simple procedure for a handy homeowner to tackle. If you call the services of a plumber, I expect your cost to be anywhere from $75-$125. Again, just be certain that water is turned off first.
