Question about Moen Plumbing

The handle of kitchen faucet model# 87435 does not come off once when plastic emblem and screw are removed.

Regardless in which position I hold the handle even applying quite some force it doesn't come off. What has to be done to make that happen so the cartridge can be changed?

Apply some more effort or try applying some heat with a hair dryer or a hot air paint stripper. Take care with the hot air gun.

    Sorry, meant to say, if its plastic don't use heat, use some release spray like wd40 and some more brute force.

Its probably seized on, you should spray wd40 all over it & wiggle it about up & down & side to side till it frees up, or tap it gently with a rubber mallet.

How do you remove the lever of a kitchen kohler clairette faucet, it seems to be stuck


On the front of the faucet handle, there is a small plastic cover with an emblem on it. Gently pry it off with a sharp knife blade. Next you will notice a small "allen" screw head. Remove it by turning it counter clockwise until it's loose. (lefty loosie - righty tighty) Lift the handle straight up to remove.

MOEN Motionsense Faucet Leaking????

Turn off the water valves beneath the sink. Cover the openings to both the drain and the garbage disposal. Use an allen wrench to remove the tiny screw holding the handle in place. Once the handle is removed, the leaking is most likely from the seams around the large plastic nut behind the metal-like plastic cover. You might be able to see water dripping from around the big nut. Remove the nut and wrap nylon plumber's tape (Costs probably around a buck at any hardware supply store) around the threads for a much better seal. Wrap the tape tight at least a couple of times around the threads.
Screw the nut back into place with your hand, then tighten with a wrench.

Place the cover back over the assembly, install the handle. You can apply clear nail polish on the threads of the tiny allen screw that holds the handle in place to minimize the risk of it coming loose and falling into your garbage disposal.

I want to change the cartridge but am lost as to how the faucet comes apart.


From www.hamatusa.com
Turn off water at supply line. Turn and remove top ring. Remove handle. Remove top half of body of faucet. Remove diverter (using large screwdriver) and replace. Replace body handle and ring.

Let me know if this works or not.

I have a single lever Moen faucet where the handle is very loose and there is no button on the back side that would reveal an allen key, so I cannot tell how to tighten it back up. What should I do?


On almost all moen single handle faucets there is no allen set screw to hold handle on. They are secured by a screw located under Moen emblem in the center of the faucet on the top. You usually can get to the handle screw by prying cover off with small blade screwdriver or point of knife blade.. Tighten screw and hopefully this will fix your problem. Thank you.

Misaligned lever on Kohler kitchen faucet


There are two possible things to look at.

Because you say "misaligned" and "frozen" it could be the handle is not set to the correct position.

There is a set screw holding the handle in place. It is a hex key I believe on that tap. Loosen the set screw and lift the handle off. move to the correct neutral position and set the screw.

If this does not do it and you are getting nothing but hot. The ceramic ball and washers could be stuck or broken. While the handle is off remove and inspect them. They should move freely in the socket. Replace or repair if necessary. Just take them to a plumbing store they are common parts.

Hope this helps. Please rate the answer if it helped you.

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.

Price pfister faucet handle drops and turns off.


Re the 'falling handle' issue, I think you misunderstood the problem, jgwhomeequip. Unfortunately for me I bought *two* similar Price Pfister faucets and both had the same problem - the water wouldn't stay on and the handle just wouldn't stay up.
I took mine apart looking for something to adjust, fruitlessly. Put it back together and have lived with it like that for ~2 years.

Finally I decided to not be a knucklehead any longer and call the manufacturer. Once I got through to their rep (on a Saturday no less!) she helped me identify the model I had (a 533-50SS, just FYI), and asked me 'what finish'? I replied 'stainless steel' and she promptly replied, 'I'm going to mail you out new lighter handles to replace the ones you have'.

Brilliant! Gold star for PP for standing behind their product well past the warranty for what was apparently a common problem. Replacing the handle will take about 10 seconds per faucet.

I only wish I had got of my a$$ and called them 2 years ago.

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).
