Leaking Kohler Vinnata kitchen faucet.

I have the Kohler Vinnata 691 kitchen faucet. I have replaced the cartridge in the handle at the base of the faucet and am still finding water leakage as before. Are there other parts I need to check?

You must use genuine kohler parts,if you got something from lowes or home depot that was some other brand they usually leak. also look for calcium build up inside the valve body,you can use 1500 grit wet sand paper to remove it just be carefull and dont sand too much,then apply water proof plumbers grease inside the valve body befor you install the new cartridge.

    How do I open the body of K-10430 apart to replace the valve cartridge kit that's leaking


    The handle has a allen set screw loosen that until the handle comes off then the bonnet nut will unscrew revealing the bonnet cap and washer the cartridge should be under that most kohler's require a special tool to remove cartridge(turn water to faucet off prior to working on faucet,also note how everything is removed it needs to be replaced in same order especially the cartridge,also you should use plumbers grease to coat all seal when replacing everything).

    Remove the air-irater at the end of the faucet where the water comes out. That is where 99% of clog are on faucets. If that does not do it then you need to replace the cartridge.

    Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

    Leaking kohler faucet


    Where the spout pivots on the main body, there are a couple of washers, you can replace these washers pretty easily by removing the handle and then the "cover" from the unit. The water has to be shut off before you do this. I would take this oppurtunity to replace all the washers.
