The handle leaks and I removed the screw in the handle and it won't even budge when I try to take it off any suggestions?

calcium build up "froze" the handle, would suggest immerse it in vinegar, or clr (do not know your local equvalent), or similar weak acid and leave for few minutes, run water through and then tap gently to try to dislodge it, repeat if necessary, and second time leave bit longer in acid.

i do not understand "handle leaks" - usually taps (faucets) do that... handle leak only if split or otherways physically damaged - it usually requires replacement, as handles are (including hose) extremely cheap and start with about $10.00 at any hardware store - i would not bother with repair - just replace.

another what can be wrong is seal gasket in handle mount. this cost few cents and is worth repairing... :-)

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.
