Question about Kohler Model 10433: Fort® Single-control Pullout Kitchen Sink Faucet Wi...
This question has already been asked, and a solution was provided a few years ago. The solution tells 'what to do', but not 'how to do it'. How do I access the O-rings? Hopefully, this can be done without disassembling the valve/flow control part of the faucet.
You'll have to turn off the water using the shutoffs or if there are none by turning off the main. open a faucet on the lower floor of the home to remove most of the water out of the system if you have to shut the main. using an allen key remove the handle. then using an adjustable wrench or crescent wrench or as a last resort a set of channel locks remove the big nut at the top of the faucet and remove the stainless steel ball assembly. You'll have to undo the hose going to the faucet from under the counter and pull the spray attachment out. Then wiggle and pull up on the spout to slide it off. Clean any lime deposits with CLR or any other descaler. You can scrape some of it off with a knife if you must. When both the spout and the shaft where it is to slide onto are both clean remove the old o-rings, replace with the new ones. Slide the spout back on. You can grease the o-rings with plumbers grease to help seal them but also to help slide on the spout easier. You can replace the seals and springs inside where the stainless steel ball goes if you please. Reassemble everything. Turn on the water. Remove and clean the aerator of any debris (done every time you do plumbing) Test that the faucet moves from side to side without leaking. Different models may have different procedures and or different o-rings in different locations. Do what you must to change the o-ring that needs changing.

there is an oring in that connection that is most likey bad. turn water off and disconnect coupling to spayer. remove the black oring and match it up at your local hardware store. when installin it lubricate it with vaseline for ease of insatlltion and to help protect it during installation.

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.
Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
