Removing an old kitchen faucet

(Newbie question) I have an old kitchen faucet I'm about to remove. I'm looking under the sink and I don't see the bracket and nut that I thought would be there to hold the faucet in place. Does this mean that it's being held on under the plate on top of the sink. I need to remove the caulking to get that plate up, but I was just wondering it that is potentially where I will find what is holding the faucet in place.

Some faucets are secured by large nuts threaded onto water supply inlets. There will be no brackets in this case. FYI all securing should be from below. Good luck

Kitchen faucet


You will need a basen wrench ( a special wrench to tighten nuts that secure faucet to sink) and open end wrenches. First shut off both hot and cold water valves. Using open end wrench, disconnect hoses from valves. Now, you must loosen both nuts (under the sink towards back wall) Using the basen wrench. After removing nuts, lift faucet up

Hot water wont stop running on hot water side


If the hot water side of the kitchen faucet will not shut off valve under the sink, dirt,rust,and/or scale could have been forced into the faucet along with the possibility of flux and some old rubber washer from the old valve. You will need to take the kitchen sink faucet apart and most likely only need to clean it out, looking for any little black,brown, or white pieces to remove. If cleaning does not work because you cannot get into an area of the cartridge, you will need to replace the carteidge and or rubber seals. Make sure to clean out the aerator on the end of the spout when completed also.

How do I disassmble a jado kitchen faucet with


you have to locate the water shut off valves before you attempt removing the water lines, hopefully they will be located on the lines under your sink, if not you will have to shut the water main off coming into the house. After you have shut the water off and disconnected the lines, look under your sink at the back were your faucet comes through the sink and you will find the fasteners, unscrew these counter clockwise and the faucet will lift out .

No water pressure in kitchen sink. Not the aerator.


First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.

1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?

If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.

2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.

Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.



Hope this helps.

How do I replace soap dispenser pump mechanism?


Our brand new Avalon model had this problem. It sure appears to be a design defect or defective part. After contacting customer support, they sent a replacement pump (the internal part, not the whole unit).

After removing the unit from your sink, holding the top pull firmly with constant pressure on the pump assembly. It will pop off, but you have to pull pretty hard.

I suggest running water through the top of your unit before putting the new pump assembly on it. Ours had black 'junk' inside even though it was brand new. The new unit just slides on in the reverse process of removing the old one.
