    Thanks for the info. I finally had to call Kohler's customer service. They kindly sent me that o-ring you mentioned and a replacement plastic bushing that is under it, plus a tube of lube for free as part of the life time warrenty. I fixed it in about 45 mins. and all's well for now.

Under the neck there is a o-ring it is starting to go a plumber to fix if you can't do it yourself.

Leaking Kohler Vinnata kitchen faucet.

you must use genuine kohler parts,if you got something from lowes or home depot that was some other brand they usually leak. also look for calcium build up inside the valve body,you can use 1500 grit wet sand paper to remove it just be carefull and dont sand too much,then apply water proof plumbers grease inside the valve body befor you install the new cartridge.

The handle function is stiff. Does not move smoothly and easily. How to lubricate?

You need to take the handle off and remove the cariridge and then place a food grade lube on all the moving parts. The replace the parts as you took them off.

You may fine your going to have to replace the cartridge after you remove the old one. So just dont do it at a time when the store are not open. Unless you have valves under the sink faucet

Best of luck

Just lost pressure. Only a very small stream of water comes out, hot or cold. All other faucet in the house work fine. It is about 1 1/2 years old. R10433-CP

First try the tip ariator. it can plug up. then you have to check the inlet system, which includes shut off valves, hoses to the faucet and the cartridge. It is the cartridge that has the small openings, but shut off valve seat material falls back into the feed channel. I usually remove cartridge, cover with a towel and turn on feed water briefly. Often I get little pieces.

Kholer 10416 faucet won't stay tight on my granite kitchen counter. Is it missing a washer or does it need a different bracket under the counter.

I would definitely try adding washers from under the sink. Has it been caulked? Caulking will help to fasten the faucet to the counter.
