Question about Faucets

1 Answer

Greetings! My Kohler kitchen faucet model K-10416 with sprayer (16 months in use) is making noise when water is turned on in both hot and cold positions. Also, when sprayer is used water flow is not being completely shut-off thru faucet. I believe problem lies with the diverter. Does complete faucet assembly need to be removed to access the diverter valve? Schematic is not clear. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Begin by shutting off the water to the faucet. Then, on the back of the handle you will find a small button. remove it with a small knife blade and underneath you will see a 1/8" set screw. Use a 1/8" inch allen wrench to remove the set screw. You can then unscrew the bonnet and remove the diverter. Take the diverter to a hardware store or plumbing supply to purchase the appropriate repair kit. goodluck.

Kohler a112.18.1 diverter will not spray


Generally the sprayer trigger assembly will unscrew from the hose. You can then point the hose toward the sink and turn on the
water. It should flow freely through the hose when either the hot or cold is on. Generally there is a aerator on the spray head. You can access it by unscrewing the tip of the sprayer assembly and clean out any mineral deposits. There may also be an inline type filter in the handle where it screws onto the hose that can be removed and cleaned. If this doesn't help I would guess the on-off triggering assembly is broken and you would have to replace the sprayer head.Hope this helps.

I used different length supply lines because th hot water line was a little short. Would this cause the side sprayer to move when the main faucet is turned on or the faucet head to drip?


No the length doesn't matter. When you turn the faucet on, you also fill the hose to the sprayer, and it may expand slightly, causing the sprayer to move a little. Is the drip from the end of the spout at the aearator? or is it around the faucet lever. If it is the lever, you should be able to tighten it slightly. If it's the end, make sure your aearator is clean.

Low stream


these faucets have a single handel, and have a cartage that can be taken out and cleaned. Low water pressure is caused by minerals in the water to build up in the cartage and slow down water flow.

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.
