Repair leaky handle

I have a blanco single handle 157-013 bronze kitchen faucet and it leaks water out of the top of the handle. It does not drip from the faucet but it leaks out of the handle that turns the faucet on and off. It is also difficult to turn the spout from side to side. The faucet is about five years old and I have three of them with the same problem. I am not sure how to take it apart. Is there a tech manual or diagram that shows how tom take the faucet apart and repair the leaks and losen the spout?

    Blanco Classic faucet - 4-5 years old - leaks form the base, on top of the counter. Is this a cartridge problem?

Try removing cap of knob and tighten screw it could be loose. If that is not it it may need a new seal ring.

Leaky kitchen faucet


What kind of faucet? (single handle, double hndle, kitchen, bathroom) Where is it dripping from? (handle, aerator or faucet head, under the sink) There are many types of faucets and many types of leaks. Sorry to be so vague but there's a pretty wide spectrum of possibilities, a little more info will go long way.

I have a blanco kitchen faucet that is about 5 years old. it seems to be leaking from inside the unit itself , problem is , trying to figure out how to get it apart to repair it.


behind the handle there should be an allen screw under a crome cap . once you reove the screw the upper metal ring should just unscrew then there are a series of o rings that can be replaced

good luck James

I have a single handle blanco classic that is leaking around the base I have removed the handle and cartridge but cant figure out how to remove the sprayer to replace the seal


You need to turn the water off under the sink. Disconnect the sprayer hose from the threaded shank under the center of the faucet body. Pull the spray head out of the faucet. Contact Blanco to receive your faucet parts free.

Water leaking from the faucet onto the countertop.

Check out this web site and it looks like it should be a o ring at the base, anyway I hope this will be helpful.
It has a breakdown of faucet internal parts.

You only need one small o-ring. If you put two of them it will not work properly and will mostlikely leak like crazy. If this helped please rate.
