SOURCE: can't remove lever hadle to replace cartridge. no

the lever handle on that faucet is two pieces, it seperates at the top of the big round part. Hold the big round part with one hand and unscrew the smaller round piece out of the top of it. You must turn the small round part, turning the handle will do no good.

This should help you

And yes it can be a little bit of a job. If the faucet has been around a while you mite try some white vineger on the cap to looson the lime deposits.

How can you remove a 7560w spray head?

  • Take out the plug button on the front side of the faucet handle and loosen the set screw with your Allen wrench, then pull off the handle. Remove the domed cap underneath the handle by unscrewing it.
  • Take off the entire spout by removing the mounting hardware under the base and lifting the spout up and off the faucet. The hose will be attached underneath the counter. Once you unscrew the connector, the spray head can be removed.

How do i remove a single handle kitchen faucet

There is typically a cover plate that needs to be pried off. Under it you will find a screw that needs to be removed. Other types use a set-screw that would be visible at the base of the handle.

1-For a metal lever handle it will have a allen head screw at the base of the lever to remove with a 1/8" allen wrench. If you can not see screw it may have a cap covering it to remove.

2-To remove plastic acrylic caps remove plastic cap to acess screw to remove handle.

Once handle is off remember the location of the dial to adjust it counter clockwise to increase hot water flow. Slide indicator dial back on stem and reposition about a 1/4" turn counter clockwise and recheck for change in temperature.

If you need any more help refer to the link provided for a digram of faucet. Go to parts down load and view faucet parts view. I hope this will be helpful in solving your issue.

Trying to remove handle in kitchen on Pegasus 784-213L to see why leaking. pull cap off and remove screw but can not get further. instructions make it look like handle should now pull off but gentle prying...

I started this when the faucet began leaking around the body when the handle was lifted to use water. I thought this was a regular faucet, but Home Depot was no help in supplying a repair kit. Fortunately I had the original manual and called Pegasus. When I described my model number and symptoms, the lady said the problem was the cartridge, covered under warranty and she would send me one. The cartridge and a new bonnet arrived a couple of days later. That was the end of easy.

Changing the cartridge was right at the limit of my patience and skill, but I won't bore you with all the rabbit trails I explored before final success. First, it's not obvious how the faucet comes apart; the top button is threaded rather than clipped as in most faucets and pliers may mar the finish when you unscrew it. With the button gone, removing the screw holding the handle was no problem, but I had to resort to a small gear puller ($5 at auto parts store) to remove the handle. I used a longer screw (1") as a center point but it was not just a matter of popping it loose; I had to draw the handle the full length before it came off. The cap under the handle is threaded to the brass bonnet and is unscrewed counter-clockwise. I had to apply heat and WD-40 alternately to finally get this to loosen and had actually given up and decided to call the plumber before going back for one more try after it sat for an hour. The finish on the cap was marred during removal, but it is not normally visible. With the cap removed the outside sleeve can be removed by pulling up and rotating; it is not threaded, but is an O-ring fit to the outside of the control body. Now the bonnet can be unscrewed from the inside of the control body. There are two flat spots on the upper threads on the bonnet that allow a crescent wrench to unscrew the bonnet from the body. Again heat and WD-40 alternating was necessary before it finally came out.

There is no need to loosen the faucet from the counter or remove any hoses, although I did. It should remain solidly mounted to provide resistance when unscrewing the cap from the bonnet and the bonnet from the body and prevent the hoses below from twisting.

Putting it back together was easy; I used Teflon tape on the bonnet threads. I decided to test the faucet after I tightened the bonnet on top of the cartridge, before the cap and sleeve were installed. When I opened the faucet, water sprayed out the back of the body, where the diagram shows the spring and diverter. I did not have any parts for this, but the sleeve has O-rings at top and bottom so I decided to install it and the cap (hand tight). After I did, the spray was stopped (by the sleeve), but it still leaked like it had done at the beginning. I assumed the sleeve was working as well as possible and maybe its O-rings were leaking. But I tightened the cap with pliers which pushes down on the sleeve, and the leak stopped. I don't feel fully comfortable because I don't have an understanding of how everything works, but it's operating normally and not leaking.

Grohe trim pressure balance valve

i looked at it and there might be a press in cap with a screw underneath where the grohe label is. there also may be a set screw around the shoulder of the handle where an allen hex wrench fits to losen its clamp on the stem. also.......some handles just snap on and just pull off with some tugging and wiggling them just right.

Handle on faucet shuts off on its own

I had the same problem. The Price Pfister web site recommends removing the handle (unscrew the dome cap, then remove the phillips screw to get the handle off) then tightening the retaining ring (I used channel lock pliers on largest setting. It worked. However the retaining ring is plastic on some models, and they recommend replacing it with a brass one. I haven't taken that step yet, we'll see how it goes (mine is plastic).
