Question about Kohler K-10416-BN Fort½ Single Control Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray...
I am trying to replace the o'rings and spout bearings to fix a leak (from just under the bonnet above the spout). Kohler instructions ask me to pull the spout to remove it from the body and expose the o'rings. However, regardless of how hard I try, the spout refuses to pull out. What can I do to solve the problem?
Going by the diagram shown on this Kohler website,
I have removed everything shown above the spout. Also, I am following Kohler's service kit instructions reproduced below:
1. Turn off water supply
2. Remove handle from faucet
3. Turn bonnet counterclockwise to remove from valve
4. Hold the base of the spout and pull up to remove spout from body
** THIS IS WHERE I AM STUCK **
5. Note the location of the bearings and O-rings on the body
6. Remove and discard existing bearings and O-rings
7. Using silicone lubricant provided, lubricate the new bearings and O-rings
8. Place the new bearing(s) and O-rings on the body in the same location as previously installed.
9. Reassemble the spout onto the body
10. Reinstall the bonnet
11. Align underside of handle with valve stem, then gently slide the handle into the valve system.
12. Secure the handle to the faucet
13. Turn on water supply. Check for proper operation.
I hope I am not missing something obvious.
