The faucet handle has become stiff to turn off and on, and to switch between cold and hot. I have loosened the screw with an Allen key, but cannot remove handle.

The handle has build up in it but should come off eventually. Sounds like a dry o-ring seal. You can purchase a kit for your model without having to replace the whole unit.

    • Test the dripping water with your hand to make sure that it is the hot water side that is leaking. Lay a rag over the sink drain to keep parts from falling down it. Locate the hot and cold shutoff valves under the sink and turn the knobs clockwise by hand until they close. If the knobs remain stiff, use a pair of pliers to gently turn them until the knob begins to move, then finish turning by hand.

      Pry the decorative cap off the faucet top with a small thin, flat-head screwdriver. Remove the cap that has the "H" letter on it. Depending upon the handle screw configuration, use a flat-head or Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the handle screw. Gently pry up on the handle from all angles and pull it up and off the splines of the stem.

      Use a crescent wrench to turn the hot water stem nut counterclockwise until it comes completely off the stem shaft. Wiggle the stem with your fingers and pull it out of the faucet. If the washer on the bottom of the stem is deformed, it indicates the source of the leak. However, remove the old seat from the faucet base with an Allen wrench or a seat removal tool.

      Wipe out the inside of the seat housing with a rag. Replace the seat with the new one included in the repair package, using an Allen wrench or seat removal tool.

      Place the new hot water stem shaft into the valve seat, and start the stem nut in by hand, turning it clockwise. Finish tightening the stem nut with the crescent wrench, but only to a moderate firmness -- do not over-tighten it. Place the handle back over the stem shaft and tap it down until it seats firmly. Replace the handle screw and tighten it with a screwdriver.

      Turn the hot and cold water supply knobs counterclockwise until they are fully open. Turn the hot water faucet knob to the "On" position and check for leaks.

I have a price pfister kitchen tap and it doesn' have a cap. how do i get the handle off to replace the cartridge


If this is the single-handle faucet I remember, there's a decorative hot/cold indicator on the front, a small half red/half blue circle. This pops out of the handle to reveal the retaining screw underneath. It's a hex-key (Allen key) screw but I don't remember the size. Once you've loosened the screw you'll be able to lift the handle off the faucet body to get at the cartridge housing.

On your single handle the first thing you do is remove the handle. To do this locate allen set screw on handle and select the right size allen wrench to fit it. Loosen set screw and pull handle out away from wall to remove it. There should be a plastic disc on the handle stem, slid it out to remove it.Remove chrome sleeve..On valve body there are marking that show hot or cold settings. Seperate teeth on geared flanges and rotate set stop toward h mark on valve body. Each tooth will change temperature about three degrees. Make trial setting and reassemble and try it out. If you want it hotter just repeat adjustments. If you try to go to far you will not be able to mesh gears,simply back off alittle bit and try again.Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have a model 3555 delta victorian faucet that has a drip, do I need to replace the stem unit assembly


First isolate which side (hot or cold) that the leak is coming from by turning off one or the other valved under the sink. once you know if its the hot or cold faucet, then shut off all water supply to the sink and remove that faucet handle with a very small allen wrench ( there should be a set screw in the side of the handle) inside of the valve (handle) there will be little rubber seals like o-rings that are worn out and need replacing. you can purchase them at home depot or a hardware store

Leaking hot water from delta single handle facuet


I have to assume you've unscrewed the face plate, not removed it, because you can't do that without taking the handle off. Delta handle usually come off by unscrewing an allen (set) screw just under the handle itself. Sometimes these are covered by a plastic plug.

Occasionally, even after you've completely removed the set screw, the handle still won't come off. Wiggling and pulling for a few minutes will generally get it off. If not, then a hacksaw, new handle and new cartridge are the answer.

If the allen screw is stripped and that's why it won't ome off, see above.

Good Luck.

Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle


Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.
