How do you remove the lever of a kitchen kohler clairette faucet, it seems to be stuck


On the front of the faucet handle, there is a small plastic cover with an emblem on it. Gently pry it off with a sharp knife blade. Next you will notice a small "allen" screw head. Remove it by turning it counter clockwise until it's loose. (lefty loosie - righty tighty) Lift the handle straight up to remove.

Where can I get a new valve cartridge for our Kohler Coralais R15160-CP faucet? It keeps flowing more slowly and I have cleaned all the filters in the pull out head, etc. The dishwasher on the same line...


Most cartridge's are specific to their faucet and need to be ordered from the manufacturer. Home Depot or another place like that, that carries Kohler plumbing supplies should be able to get one for you and may even have one in stock. Good luck.

Check under the sink to be sure the weight on the hose isn't resting on something, preventing it from retracting fully into the base. Also check to see if the weight might be in the wrong spot on the hose and not pulling the faucet back into the base properly.

Kohler - Coralais Pull-Out Spray Kitchen Faucet


te leak most likely is the cartridge you need to take the handle off and there will be a lock nut under where the handle was, turn the water supply off and remove the nut the cartridge will pull staight out, cartridges can't be repaired they need to be replaced. Watch out because some cartridges cost more than what the tap is worth

Kohler Coralais K 15160 The body has a machined hole in the back, about the diameter of a toothpick. It has begun to leak water when the faucet is turned on, however this occurs once in awhile.


The front of the handle has a plastic button which can be removed with your thumb nail or tooth pick. Once the button is removed use a 1/8 allen wrench to remove the handle. Remove the decretive sleeve to access the top of the valve. Tighten the valve stem nut and reassemble. It the problem persists you may need a new valve or rubber seal. The best thing about Kohler is they offer a lifetime no leak warranty. I personally will buy Kohler faucets and toilets because of the quality and warranty. Delta has some hi end products but the support and warranty policies will make you never want to service a Delta product again. So if the faucet still leaks just call 1-800-456-4537, and they will send you a new faucet or parts.

Water volume slowed down


Sounds like you may possibly have some sediments in the screen on the spray head. When you pull the head out you can disconnect it from the flex supply line and see if the water pressure is okay with out the head connected. This will either confirm it is in the spray head or valve body.

Misaligned lever on Kohler kitchen faucet


There are two possible things to look at.

Because you say "misaligned" and "frozen" it could be the handle is not set to the correct position.

There is a set screw holding the handle in place. It is a hex key I believe on that tap. Loosen the set screw and lift the handle off. move to the correct neutral position and set the screw.

If this does not do it and you are getting nothing but hot. The ceramic ball and washers could be stuck or broken. While the handle is off remove and inspect them. They should move freely in the socket. Replace or repair if necessary. Just take them to a plumbing store they are common parts.

Hope this helps. Please rate the answer if it helped you.
